Don’t Touch Your Garage Door Springs. Period.


Some garage door repairs are safe to do yourself, but dealing with broken torsion or extension springs is not one of them. This is something we’re pretty adamant across the board. It’s not like you couldn’t figure out how to do it yourself; it’s that it’s not safe to. A compromised garage door spring is a hazard to life, limb, and all the stuff in your garage. Why risk it when you can have specialists in garage door repair over for a quick service visit to replace it safely and correctly?

Garage door springs are under a lot of pressure. Extension springs use tension, torsion springs use torque, and both are hundreds of PSI, if not more; it’s how they make opening and closing the door so easy. Your garage door opener doesn’t actually do a whole lot more than guide the up-and-down process; the springs do almost all the work. If an extension spring snaps or a torsion spring suddenly unwinds, the door can come crashing down and the wayward springs can do damage to anything in their path.

Not to be scary.

But it is a little scary.
