Broken Garage Door Springs
Garage doors are an essential component of your Newport News VA home. They open and close at least twice a day, and you use it as a front entrance to your home. Mainly, this constant use of your garage door results to the spring wearing out. Generally, the garage door spring wears out first before other more significant components of the door begin to wear out and get damaged. Here are some symptoms you should be checking to see if you need to replace your garage door spring:
- Your Garage Door Becomes Heavy: The moment you start to feel like the energy you are using to open the door is more, don't doubt your strength. This could be a sign that the torsion springs need to be checked.
- Loose Garage Door Cables: If you have noticed that your garage door cables are slacking, don't go blaming the wires. What keeps the cables tight is the force caused by a tightly wound torsion spring. When the springs are not in a proper working condition, the cables are likely to slip out and become loose.
- The Door Doesn't Open All the Way: The most definite sign of a worn-out spring will be when the door doesn't open fully. If your door hardly opens above six inches, it is a sign that the springs are not only worn out but also broken.
If you are experiencing any of these signs for your garage door, don't hesitate to contact us. We will be more than willing to repair and replace your garage door springs.
