How to Fix Broken Garage Springs
It usually starts by hearing a strange sound coming from your garage door – and you just know your garage door spring is broken. A broken garage door spring will prevent your garage door from opening properly, and replacing it can be complicated and tricky – however, the experts here at Los Angeles Garage Door and Gate have advice for you on what to do if your garage springs are broken.
BROKEN SPRING RECOGNITION
You need to make sure that the garage door opener springs are in fact broken. Directly visually inspect the springs. Broken springs will look rusty or stretched out. There could be a gap between the coils of the spring leading to the spring’s center. The look of the garage door can also indicate a broken spring; if the door is opening unevenly, or is not opening fully, or is opening or closing with a creaking noise, it’s likely due to a broken spring.
