Why Springs Are Never a DIY Garage Door Repair

If your garage door opens a little bit and then immediately closes, you’ve likely got a bad spring that needs to be replaced. You can expect a garage door spring to last about 3 years, depending on how often it needs to be replaced. Keep in mind that springs are a repair for your garage door you should never do yourself. They are just too dangerous. One snap of your springs can easily send you to the hospital. Those springs are under an incredible amount of tension — they are the reason your hundred pound plus garage door lifts as light as a feather. You should hire a garage door repair professional for spring repair. They have the proper tools, equipment and expertise to be able to do the job safely and effectively.
