PBA Tip of the Day brought to you by Rod Sarten with Upright Garage Door and Gate (602) 604-2200.
You heard a loud noise and now your garage door won’t open, why? Rod has the answer!
That is the sound of a garage door torsion spring breaking. It can be a very loud noise that sounds like a firecracker or gunshot. Springs are rated for a certain number of cycles and are the first thing that will break in your garage door assembly. Broken springs are the #1 source of customer calls for garage door repair companies. If you have a broken spring, you should NEVER try to open the door, as it can be very dangerous. This repair should be left to a professional or someone with the right tools and skills. If you have a broken torsion spring or any other problems with your garage door, give Rod a call!
