Does it seem like your garage door is coming down a lot faster than it used to? As you might expect, this could turn your garage door into a safety hazard before long.
In this case, you’ll want to adjust your garage door springs to make it start coming down at a normal speed again. Adjusting garage door springs should be enough to fix a problem like this. It’s a pretty common garage door problem.
There are also other signs that’ll show you need to have garage door maintenance performed on your garage door springs. You might have a loose garage door spring or even a broken spring if you spot any of them.
Here are the signs that’ll suggest you need to schedule garage door spring adjustment or garage door spring replacement ASAP.
Your Garage Door Won’t Open All the Way
Your garage door springs do a lot of the heavy lifting, quite literally, when you open your garage door up. For this reason, you should be wary any time you try to open your garage door and it won’t go up all the way.
If your garage door starts to go up and then stops and comes back down, it’ll often be an indication that there is something wrong with either the motor for your garage door opener or your garage door springs. You might be able to get your garage door to start going up again after you adjust your garage door springs accordingly.
Your Garage Door Is Crooked When It’s Up or Down
When the springs on your garage door aren’t working in the way they should, you’ll typically be able to tell just by looking at the door itself. It’ll often be crooked when it’s up or down since its springs won’t be lifting it up or letting it down evenly.
You’ll likely need to have your garage door springs either adjusted or replaced altogether to stop your garage door from being so uneven.
Your Garage Door Looks Like It’s Bent at the Top
Most modern-day garage doors are made up of different panels. If the panels at the top of your garage door look as though they’re bent, it could be a sign that something has gone terribly wrong with your garage door springs.
Your springs may have broken and let the cables for your garage door bend the top panels. A great garage door maintenance company should be able to remedy this situation without forcing you to replace both your garage door springs and your garage door panels.
