How to Identify a Failing Garage Door Spring April 21, 2017

How to Identify a Failing Garage Door Spring, Dayton, Ohio

Your garage door works hard for you, reliably opening every morning as you’re rushing out to work, and letting you back in at night when you’re exhausted. It’s like clockwork—until a broken garage door spring interrupts your flow. You can still open the door manually, but forget using the garage door opener.

Serving the Greater Dayton and Cincinnati, OH areas, Precision Door Service wants you to know that there is a way to anticipate this problem. You can tell if your springs are going bad by looking for these signs:

  • Periodic Stops While Opening: A weakening garage door spring may cause your door to stop randomly while it’s opening or closing. If you notice this happening, you may only have a limited number of days before it stops opening entirely. Call a professional for your garage door spring replacement, as these components are under a dangerous amount of tension.

  • garage door springMalformed Garage Door Springs: If your garage door springs have lost some of their tension, they will appear to be stretched out or have a “gap” in the middle. A spring that’s gone slack is no good, so you should get it replaced as soon as possible.

  • Crooked Garage Door Appearance: If your garage door hangs with one side higher than the other, there’s likely a problem with the spring. If you have two springs, both will require replacement to level the door. If you only replace the spring with the least tension, you’ll still have two unequal springs and end up having the same problem.
