Get Your Garage Door Springs Inspected
Broken garage door springs range from an inconvenience to a serious problem that can potentially ruin your door. Worn springs may fail suddenly, and if this happens while your door is halfway up or down, the door could crash to the ground and become damaged. Broken springs can also cause your opener motor to wear out. If you have a light, factory-made door, you can probably use the manual feature to open the door even with a broken spring. But owners of heavy custom-made wood doors won’t be so lucky and their cars may become trapped in the garage by a broken spring.
By getting a garage door inspection from Carroll Garage Doors, you can improve your chances of repairing springs before they actually break. Our skilled technicians will look at the springs and recommend replacement as soon as they begin to show dangerous signs of wear.
