Exhausted lifespan of the springs
The lifespan is one of the crucial factors for the proper functioning of the garage door springs. The average lifespan of the garage springs is usually 10 000 cycles. Though that sounds like a huge number, it gets exhausted very quickly. The opening and closing of the garage door are considered as one complete cycle. So, it is always better to get your springs' lifespan checked with an experienced garage door springs replacement company like us. We will provide you with the right time to replace the springs.
Poor maintenance of garage door springs
Garage door springs tend to wear off quickly but maintaining them properly is the only way to extend their life span. Always have an eye to detect the defects. Fixing up the broken springs cannot be possible in most cases. We always prefer garage spring replacement instead of repairing damaged springs.
To avoid spring breakage in the first place, we suggest our clients check the garage door’s balance once in every season. The best way to scrutinize the garage door is to keep it open halfway. Then, check if it stands still at equal height on both ends or not. If it fails, it denotes that the spring failure. In that case, it is always better to approach a professional garage door springs replacement company like us.
Rust formation and corrosion
The formation of rust is also one of the reasons for the spring's failure. Rust leads to increased friction on the coil of the spring and weakens it. This ultimately leads to a reduced lifespan, which means that your spring is about to break at any point.
Over the years, we have done many garage door spring replacements in Matthews. We suggest our clients spray lubricant oil on the springs to prevent them from rust. If you are skeptical of which lubricant to use for the springs, we can suggest the right one for your springs. For more info, call us at 704-910-8392.
