What's all the Fuss About?
Why these small-looking parts called garage door springs call for a whole page about them? – you might ask. These parts, almost invisible on your daily routine, do all the heavy lifting of the door. To put it simply – they are the muscle. Their coils store all the tension when the door is up, and this tension can be very dangerous when they break. So in a nutshell – you'll want to keep an eye on their condition, and stay out of their way when they look rusty or too worn. What should you do then? Well – that's where we come in!
Why Can't I Just Replace the Spring Alone?
Great question, and a pretty common one. You probably can try – but the question should be why you shouldn't. We mentioned the tension before – tension one that breaks loose when the spring snaps. The piece of metal might inflict direct injuries, sure. Let's say the spring already broken when no one was around, and the door is closed shut so it can't fall on anyone either. Do you know what type of spring your door needs? Did you change any panels lately or had windows installed? These might have changed the door's weight – so the type of spring you need might have changed as well. Getting the wrong type of spring is one common mistake – but even more common one is not replacing the other spring. See, the other spring may still be intact – but these moments when it supports the door on its own shorten its life pretty significantly.
