Garage Doors Spring Repairs in Amarillo, TX, and Surrounding Areas.
Garage door springs can wear out over time, and when this happens, the door will not open or close as smoothly as it used to. They can become weak and unable to hold the weight of the door, or you find that one spring breaks leaving the entire door crooked, and the remaining spring with very high tension attached to it. It is best to hire a professional to replace your garage door springs because of the high risk of injury associated with these types of repairs. Please don’t attempt to raise the door if you find it in a lopsided position. Willow Creek Overhead Door serves Amarillo, Dalhart, Dumas, Panhandle, Borger, Pampa, Plainview, and Canyon, Texas.
Garage Door Springs Can Be Hazardous!
A broken spring on your garage door is not something you should try to fix on your own. Garage door springs operate under a great deal of tension, and if they break, a garage door can drop suddenly. A rusted or damaged garage door spring can break suddenly, become disengaged, and cause injury to anyone nearby. If you notice that your garage door is acting strange or won't close properly, it's probably time to have the springs inspected and or replaced before you find yourself in a hazardous situation.
How Often Should You Replace Garage Door Springs?
Your garage door's lifespan can vary depending on how it's used and maintained. In general, a garage door's lifespan can last 10,000 to 20,000 cycles, with a cycle defined as one up and down movement of the door. That means that on average, a garage door will be opened and closed at least 10,000 times before the springs need replacing. Sounds like a lot, but in reality, this can be about 10-15 years depending on how often your garage door is used. Add those weather-related events that cause flooding resulting in rusty springs, and your garage door spring's lifespan can be shortened.
