Garage Door Spring Repair in Boca Raton, Florida
If your garage door springs have suddenly snapped, you’ve likely found yourself in quite a bind. Since springs most often break when the door is closed, many folks don’t even realize something has gone wrong until they go to pull the car out – and find that the door won’t budge! If you’re stuck with a garage door emergency, call right away for garage door spring repair in Boca Raton.
Do I need to replace both springs?
If you’ve taken a little time to check out your door, you’ve likely noticed that there is more than one spring on the mechanism. In most cases, it’s safe to assume that all of the springs were installed at the same time. When you have two torsion or extension springs on your door, it’s best to replace both at once – even if they aren’t both broken. If one is broken, the other will follow suit before long, so you’ll save time and money by replacing both at once.
The occasional exception to this rule is when you have springs with different dimensions or weights. In this case, the broken spring may have simply had a shorter life cycle, and the larger one may not need to be replaced for a while longer. In looking at your door however, we may still recommend changing both springs so that your door is fitted with springs in the same length and weight. This will protect your door opener by ensuring that the weight of your door is lifted evenly.
Do I need to call for help?
While the process of changing out a spring isn’t too complicated, it IS dangerous. The springs are under a great deal of tension, and that tension must be released before springs can be repaired. Without the right tools and know-how, that release of tension can result in serious injury to you or your property.
