If you don’t take good care of your garage door and give it regular maintenance sessions, your springs will break. If you take perfect care of your garage door and keep it oiled and fine-tuned…your springs will still break, it’ll just take longer to happen. Garage door springs are sturdy, but the system is still designed with the expectation that the springs will break long before other components do. If you keep track of your springs’ estimated service lifespan and pay attention to their condition, you can see this coming and replace them before they break. If their breaking takes you by surprise, it’s a lot more inconvenient and annoying. Fortunately, if you live in the greater League City area, even unexpected broken springs don’t have to ruin your whole day. Garage Door Repair League City offers same-day replacement services all year round.
A Garage Door Without Springs
The springs of a garage door constantly fight against the door’s weight. In doing this, they counteract much of that weight and effectively lighten the garage door to the point where the opener and cables can lift it. Without the springs, your opener would have to lift the full weight of the door each time you opened it. Some openers can’t manage this at all. Others can, but will quickly wear themselves out and shorten their own lifespans if they have to do it. The springs are much more replaceable than an opener, and a broken spring is much safer than a broken cable. If your League City garage door has a broken spring, don’t try to open it unless it’s a real emergency. Get the springs replaced as soon as you can, and avoid touching your garage door in the meantime.
