We know that we’ve covered the topic of garage door springs on our blog before, but it is a topic that bears more mention. Here at Seattle Garage Doors that is the main call we get, the springs aren’t working right. More often than not the springs start to sag when they lose tension and then you notice the door is lifting and lowering evenly, instead one side goes up or down faster than the other. This is definitely a sign of a loose spring and should not go unnoticed. If you see this happening you need to call a technician out right away to make sure that they get it fixed.
You might be wondering why it is so important to take care of this asap. The springs carry a lot of tension and the garage door is a very heavy piece of equipment, which means if the spring snaps suddenly with the door in motion the whole door can suddenly fall with all of that force behind it, which in worst case scenarios can cause casualties. It really is not something you should even consider putting off.
We always offer same day services and emergency repairs, so if you notice your door moving oddly please don’t wait give us a call. We don’t care if it is 2am we want to keep you and your family safe so we will get someone to you and we will replace those springs right away!
