Why You Should Not Change a Garage Door Spring Yourself

Has your garage door spring been squeaking even after you have oiled it with a silicon lubricant? If so, that is a good sign that your garage door spring or springs may need replacing. There are two different types of garage door springs, torsion and extension. These springs are wound very tightly to ensure proper garage door movement. If a spring were to snap with someone close by, they have the potential for causing serious harm and injury.

Because of this, it is very important that a garage door professional deals with any spring issues as they can do so safely. By calling a professional, they would make sure that they can fit the correct size of spring and ensure that the spring is at the correct tension. They will also be able to fit the springs so that the garage door is properly balanced.

Garage door springs can be incredibly dangerous for anyone other than a professional.
