The Importance of Springs for your Garage Door Repair in Lincoln Park

Published on February 19th, 2019

A broken garage door can be a pain in the neck. The door could be jammed, extremely heavy and prevent you from being able to access your garage. When researching garage door repair in Lincoln Park, you may find that the solution you may be looking for are new springs.

What are Springs?

Springs are a small but vital part of your garage door system. They are small coils that serve as a counterbalance to the weight of the door. This counterbalance allows you to open and close the garage door with very little effort. A properly installed garage door should only take two fingers to open and close. Springs typically last about seven to nine years, but if you use your garage door frequently, they could wear out within four to six years.

If you are in need of garage door repair in Lincoln Park, you may not need a new door, it is possible that replacing springs could be the solution you are looking for!

Will I need to replace my whole garage door?

No! Springs can be added to most existing garage doors. A torsion spring, a spring that is usually mounted directly above the door is great for garages in older homes that have less room in the garage. Alternatively, extension springs are mounted above garage doors and use pulling force to help balance the door. Robert’s Garage Door Professionals can take a look at your garage to determine which spring would be right for your garage.
