Why You Should Never Attempt Garage Door Spring Repair Yourself

The average garage door goes up and down several times a day, thousands of times per year. What’s more, they weigh hundreds of pounds, yet go up with the push of a button. What makes it so easy? The torsion spring. Yet when this spring breaks down, it’s important to realize this is no DIY job. Garage door spring repair should only be done by a professional. While torsion spring replacement on a garage door is generally safer than fixing an extension spring, it’s still a job best left to an experienced technician. The springs on a garage door are extremely dangerous and can cause serious injury and even death.

Torsion springs are found inside the garage door just above the torsion shaft. They are under extreme tension to be able to lift up the sizable weight of the door. Extension springs offer counter balance, providing lifting power by stretching. It helps balance the door’s weight as it lifts.

A technician will not only have the specialized experience to do the job safely, but the proper tools to make sure it is done correctly. They will be able to better balance the door to avoid future problems. They’ll make sure the spring is properly sized.
