Garage doors offer so much more than visual aesthetic. In addition to securing vehicles or supplies that may be stored in the garage, for over 70% of homeowners, they also serve as the entryway for the home. Undoubtedly, a garage door that doesn’t function properly is not only a nuisance, but it’s an emergency situation and can also be dangerous, especially when a broken spring is the culprit. TGS Garages & Doors has the expertise to assess and repair your garage door spring, to maximize its lifespan, and keep your family safe.

Spring Into Action If Your Garage Door Shows These Signs

As a garage door is continuously opened and closed, tension is placed on the springs, whether they be torsion or extension springs. Over time, this tension can result in a garage door that doesn’t open or close as intended. Keep an eye and ear out for the following signs, all indicators that your garage door may require spring repair:

  • A garage door that won’t open all the way. This occurs due to a safety feature that is built into most garage door openers. When the garage door opener senses a problem (usually caused by a broken spring), it stops bringing the door up in order to prevent further damage to the garage door or opener.
  • A garage door that opens slowly. If your garage door has a DC motor, it starts off slowly and then kicks into a higher speed. If the spring is broken, the door may feel too heavy to move any faster.
  • Hearing an unexplained “bang” from the garage. Often times, homeowners assume this bang is from an intruder or from something heavy that has fallen.  On the contrary, when springs break, a lot of stored mechanical energy is displaced quickly. As the coil unwinds, a loud banging noise can result.
