It has been unseasonably mild for the last few weeks. Typically in December is when a lot of garage door springs begin to crack. Dropping temperatures cause the springs to become more rigid and brittle. When a garage door is operated under these circumstances, the springs have a higher probability of breaking.
If you experience a broken spring, It will probably happen when your garage door is in the closed position. The spring does most of the lifting of the weight of the door. If you are unable to open the garage door with just one hand, you may have a broken spring.
Our technicians will measure your garage door spring and give you a few pricing options based on the quality of the spring.
