You’re heading out of the house, car keys in hand, and push the button on the garage door opener when you hear a loud pop. In most instances, this noise is caused by the garage door springs snapping as the motor kicks on. Unfortunately, broken garage door springs can keep your door from opening and closing as it should and though the repair may seem simple enough, it’s best to leave the job to the pros. Here are a few reasons you should always let an expert repair your broken garage door springs.
- Safety: The springs help raise and lower your door, bearing most of the weight of the door itself. This means, each spring is under intense pressure and strain at all times, making it dangerous to repair broken springs or make adjustments to those that are intact. Professionals have the training and protective gear that is required to ensure that the job is done safely every time.
- Guarantees the Right Spring: There are different types of garage springs based on the type of door and motor you have. If you’re not familiar with the specifics of your garage, picking the right springs can be difficult. Experienced technicians know what springs work with your garage and will take the time to measure and fit the replacement properly.
- Saves Time: If you’re like most homeowners, your garage door is the most-used entry into your home. When it’s broken or not working well, it’s a major inconvenience and DIY repairs inherently take time. Hiring a professional is the easiest way to speed up the repair process. They know how to fix the problem as soon as they make a diagnosis, ensuring that your door is up and running quickly, so you can get back to your routine without disrupting your daily schedule.
