Garage Door Springs

Salt Lake City Garage Door Springs

If you have a broken garage door spring  you have a decision to grapple with Рshould I replace just the broken spring, or should i replace both springs?

Why you should replace both at the same time

The smart answer is to replace both. Unfortunately, consumers don’t understand the need to replace the spring that isn’t broken, and they believe they are being “oversold” or hoodwinked by the technician.

Not so. Replacing both tension springs makes perfect sense. First of all, the unbroken spring is bound to be on its last leg because springs are engineered to last a finite number of open-and-close cycles for your garage door. When one spring snaps, it’s a sure sign that the other is about to blow. The average garage door spring lasts about 3 years, but technicians can install longer-lasting springs that cost a few dollars more and provide peace of mind for many years to come.

Another excellent reason to replace both your tension springs at the same time is to save money. Most reputable garage door service companies offer a nice discount for the second spring.

Finally, look at this way: when your shoelace breaks, do you replace just the broken lace, or both?

It’s possible that you have only one spring as a counter-balance to the tremendous weight of your garage door. If so, it’s a tightly-wound torsion spring mounted above the door in the center of your garage. These are the most dangerous types of springs because they store so much energy. Be sure to consult a professional.
