Many people use their garage door as the main entrance to their home. Since your garage door may open 15 – 20 times a day, it’s no wonder your springs break. Garage door springs lift the door every time it opens and closes. Although a garage door opener operates the door, most of the actual lifting comes from springs attached to the door. When the springs break or become weak, you‘ll hear a loud bang or a continuous ping while the door is in motion.

Whenever a spring breaks, the door will not go up. Don’t try to lift the door or disconnect your opener since you can damage the door or opener and possibly hurt yourself. Springs are under a tremendous amount of tension and a simple slip could cause injury or even death. Call a garage door repair specialist in Minneapolis, MN to have them professionally and safely installed.

Since garage door springs are rated in cycles, their life expectancy is limited. The spring replacement is determined by garage door usage. The average factory garage door spring will open and close the door about 10,000 times and may last 5 or more years depending on how the door is used and maintained before the coils weaken, crack, rust or snap. If it seems like you are replacing your standard cycle springs more often than you like, it may be time to consider high cycle springs.

High cycle springs have their advantages. These 100,000 cycle springs come with a lifetime warranty that lasts ten times longer than standard springs. This means longer service and better door operation. Why not consider high cycle springs to minimize urgent and frequent repairs?
