It is easy to take the garage door for granted especially when we come to rely on the science of the automatic garage door opener to frequently lift and lower the heaviest and largest moving part of the entire house every day. Did you know that the torsion springs on your garage door have a limited lifespan?
The Torsion Spring Lifespan
Indeed, a single up and down cycle accounting for at least a minimum of two cycles per day means the life expectancy of 10,000 cycles reaches its end in about 14 years. However, with the ease of an electronic opener, we all tend to open and close our garage doors more frequently than that. Just by doubling the cycles, you reduce the lifespan of your springs by half.
Avoid Further Damage or Possible Injury
It should be no surprise, then, when one of these torsion springs sounds off with that loud report from a break effectively releasing all that tension. Unfortunately, that means you are not getting that very heavy door up again until the spring is replaced. Do not attempt to open or close the door with a broken spring. The weight of the door poses dangers, not only in the form of bodily injury, but also in the way this movement may damage or destroy your opener. Steel doors often bend when operating an opener on broken springs.
Rely on the Expert
The best solution is to have a trained professional who follows the International Door Association’s strict Code of Business Practices and who is IDEA certified come out to replace the spring. Arriving quickly in clean, stocked vehicles, our team of experts have the tools and the knowledge to perform this repair with dispatch and efficiency.
Diagnostic and Preventive Maintenance
While we are at it, our professional garage door repairmen observe your door in action to check if it is running smoothly or if it is a bit jerky in places. We listen to ensure it operates silently or if it is grinding or scraping anywhere. We check for symmetry of the system.
In addition, we also check the following:
- Roller brackets
- Counterweight system
- Test the auto-reverse safety features, both mechanical and photocell
- Clear the tracks of debris on either side of the door and to see if they are plumb
- Inspect the condition of the door for possible warping, rust or chipped paint
- Lubricate all moving parts
If you have not had your automatic garage door checked out recently or you have an issue with a broken spring, give us a call today to come out. We will provide you with a free estimate and leave your garage door in the best operating condition for both safety and continued convenience.
