Why do Garage Door Springs Break?
Just like the working parts of your washing machine or your car, garage door springs can break if the door doesn’t receive a yearly tune-up or maintenance service, and our garage door spring repair Manhattan Beach pros have a team dedicated to performing maintenance for homeowners to increase the lifespan of their springs and other parts. As a garage door cycles (the act of opening and closing), the springs take on wear and tear. They will normally last through 10,000 cycles, or from 5 to 7 years. Since the springs support the weight of your door, they are put under massive strain.
Springs can also break from rust build-up, and because Manhattan Beach is near the sea, the air has more moisture and salt in it making for the perfect conditions for rust to form. Our garage door spring repair team lubes the torsion springs to help with movement and to protect against rust. Call us for a tune-up. We will ensure your springs are not on the verge of snapping, and if they are, we will replace them before your door slams down.
How do I Replace Garage Door Springs?
Unless you have received specialty training, you should never try to replace garage door springs on your own, as this is not a DIY project for the average-skilled person. Every year hundreds of people damage their property by attempting this task themselves. Others receive severe injuries such as the loss of an eye, severed fingers, and even death.
Torsion springs function under tremendous amounts of pressure. So, if you don’t use the right tools, or if you mishandle the components, the springs and other parts working with them can shoot through the air like a bullet. Your springs work with the cables and drum. The drum is typically a cast aluminum alloy 4’’ in diameter and 12.5’’ or so in circumference around its flat side. The cable unwinds off the backside of the drum between the part and the garage wall where it travels down inside the track brackets and behind the roller stems. When replacing garage door springs you need to make sure these parts all fit correctly.
Repairing springs on your own can also prove to be difficult because most manufacturers won’t sell their parts to anyone who isn’t a certified technician. Your best bet is to call our garage door spring repair Manhattan Beach pros; we are the best at what we do everyday!
