Your garage door springs suddenly breaks before work, and your car is stuck. Now what?
On average, garage door springs need to be replaced every ten years. Others estimate that they have about 10,000 cycles (one cycle being one time up and one time down) before they inevitably wear out and break.
Since no one is counting how many times they open and close their garage door on a daily basis nor do many remember when they last replaced their garage door springs, Garage Force One crafted this simple guide to selecting garage door springs.
The first thing you will notice is your garage door only opens about 2 inches off of the ground when you push the button on your garage door opener. The springs job is to lift the door. Without that tensioned spring, the door will get very heavy. Do not try to lift it.
