dreamstime_xxl_19642598Your garage door springs are a common cause of issues with your garage door. If you are like most people, you probably haven’t given much consideration to your garage door springs, unless you have had to repair them. While technically, it is possible to DIY garage door spring repair, we don’t recommend it. When in the hands of an amateur, a garage door spring could cause serious harm, and could even be life threatening. If you have a squeaky spring, that’s one thing; you could lubricate that spring and fix the problem easily for yourself. However, if you take this step and the problem isn’t resolved, it’s time to call Lifetime Garage Doors for garage door repair. Here are some of the reasons why it is essential that you hire a professional to repair your springs.


First of all, garage door repairs are dangerous. Think about it: your garage door weighs hundreds of pounds. The springs are used to lift that weight, which means that they are extremely tense and strong. If you make one small mistake, the tension of the spring could cause it to whip around, potentially causing bodily harm or even death. Additionally, if you install the springs incorrectly, your garage door could accidentally fall on someone. The safest way to repair your garage door springs is to have a professional garage door company come install them for you.

Peace of mind

One of the greatest benefits to hiring a professional for any service is the peace of mind it gives you. Even if it seems that you have effectively installed the garage spring yourself, you can’t know for sure, and this may weigh on your mind every time you use your garage door. After all, how do you know it is properly balanced? Or if you wound your torsion spring correctly, preventing it from snapping? For greater peace of mind, call Lifetime Garage Doors.
