Can You Still Operate Your Doors With Bad Coils?

The only way you can open your garage doors with broken spring sets is by doing it manually. You can set it to manual operation by pulling on the red emergency release cord. This allows you ample time to continue the daily open and close cycle without a problem.

How Does a Garage Door Spring Break?

There are several reasons why door spring coils break. However, the top cause appears to be none other than simple wear and tear. The constant opening and closing of your garage doors will eventually wear out your coils and cause them to break. You can try periodic maintenance such as routine lubrication, which can prolong the life of your door spring coils. Check for any rust and call a professional at 832-702-5376 if you see any.
Another way to check your springs is to test them for balance and strength. All you have to do is open your garage door up to 4 or 5 feet and let go. If the door stays in place and doesn’t move, your spring coils are in good shape. But any signs of sagging or slipping mean it’s time to replace them. Don’t panic, call us immediately at 832-702-5376. We can determine the spring type you need and replace it immediately.


What Spring Type Do I Need?

Before you replace your door springs, try to determine what type you need. Do you need a torsion spring set, or a set of extension coils? Also, consider the price of each type. While extension spring sets are least expensive, they have a shorter lifespan. Extensions can wear out easily after so many uses.
If you want something that’s durable and long-lasting, opt for torsion coil sets. They may be more expensive, but they are definitely a worthy investment. They work best with double garage doors or doors that are heavier than most. A garage door spring repair specialist will help you determine the type of spring you need for your garage doors. They can measure the length of each spring and install them immediately. Call us at 832-702-5376 today to learn more.
Extension sets only last for a maximum of 10,000 open and close cycles, whereas torsion sets last anywhere from 10,000 to 20,000. That said, you can expect to have any spring set last you anywhere from 7-12 years on average.
