Garage Door Springs

By: Apple Door Systems | May 09, 2016 | Garage Doors

Have you ever heard that loud bang in the middle of the night? It is probably a broken spring on your garage door. If you are one of the many people whose garage door suffers from a broken spring, you should know exactly what happens when that spring breaks. The spring typically breaks when the door is closed. The door has now become dead weight and will not open without having a professional do the job.

Springs are pretty important to the functionality of your garage door. Most people think the door is raised and lowered by the motor. The motor only plays a small part in lifting your door. The majority of the work is done by the spring or springs, so it is very inconvenient when they break. The typical life of a spring is 10,000 cycles. When the door goes up and then back down, that equals one cycle. Usually as the springs get older, they will either stop working as efficiently or just stop working period.
