Garage Door Spring Repair

If you’ve ever had a problem with your garage door, there’s a good chance it had something to do with the torsion spring. Garage door springs literally do most of the heavy lifting for your door and that makes them a crucial component for smooth garage door operation. Any spring, in its most basic form, can store potential energy or exert kinetic energy. What this means for your garage door is that these unassuming wound up coils help open and close your door every time you go in and out of your garage. A double width garage door can weigh several hundred pounds – imagine lifting that every time you wanted to open the door! The garage door springs provide extra force to help get the door opened and closed.

That said, garage door springs work hard and can store a lot of energy and force. This makes them dangerous in the hands of an untrained professional. So rule number one – don’t do the DIY thing on springs – it’s not worth the risk. Always call a professional garage door repair service like Keen Garage Doors. Now consider that the average garage door is opened 5+ times a day. Every time you go in or out that’s 2 cycles. Taking the car out, going for a bike ride, getting the lawnmower – it adds up fast. 10 cycles a day means 3650 cycles per year. With the average garage door spring lasting around 10,000 cycles, you can expect your garage door springs to last around 3-7 years depending on usage. Wow, these springs really do work hard! No wonder they are one of the most common components to require service!
