Do it yourself spring replacement

During the last few years, we are meeting more and more people who tried to repair their garage door by themselves, based on you tube Videos. The problem is that there are few things that the Videos on you tube don’t prepare you for, so we would like to do it. Keep in mind that what may seem easy on the web, may be tough and dangerous in real life. So if you search for garage door spring repair, and you see some DIY videos, keep in mind that the videos you just found are for the doors presented on the video, and your door can be (and probably is) different.

  • Do you have the right part? There are many garage door springs, each spring was designed to fit a certain door, and sometime what may seem to us like the same spring, may turn to be the wrong spring. Not only that the door won’t work, you may put yourself at risk, since using the wrong spring is dangerous, the garage door can “jump up” or crash down.
  • Do you have the required knowledge? They have good explanation on some of the Videos, but they do not explain everything. If you do not understand the mechanism of the garage door, and the way it operate, avoid replacing the spring by yourself.
  • Every garage door is unique: You may have a garage door that operate by torsion spring system like the one in the Video, but it does not necessarily mean that you have the exact same door. Some doors are “low head-room”, which make the way they were installed different from other doors.
  • Do you have tools? Using screw driver, or a pipe instead of torsion sticks is dangerous. Avoid using tools which aren’t recommended for the job.
  • Do you know what the problem is? If the spring snapped, then you may think that replacing the spring may solve the problem, and you may be right, but you may also be wrong. Sometime there are additional parts to replace, to make sure that the garage door is safe for use.
  • Does it worth it? Is it worth it for you to put yourself, and your family at risk? Some doors can weight hundreds of pounds, and a misuse of the door can be deadly.

As you can see, there are many factors that should be calculated before deciding to repair it by yourself. But the bottom line of all of them is one: Nothing worth the risk, and you should never put yourself, or someone else at risk, because safety comes before anything else.

Broken spring replacement case study

More than once, during servicing garage doors in Westchester County, we received calls from customers who tried fixing their garage door by themselves, or by using a local handyman, and ended with a completely broken garage door, and sometime even near injuries. One of the cases is the one when someone who had a broken garage door in Mamaroneck decided to buy the springs and replace the by himself. He actually purchased the right springs, and he also followed the right DIY video, but what he did not know is that since he had a low headroom garage door, some things need to be done differently. We do not blame him, some things only experience can teach, but this nice person almost got himself killed trying to operate the door once he (Assumed) he completed the installation.
What we say: sometime it is better to call a local garage door technician to come and fix the door for you. It can be a garage door in Westchester County, or anywhere else, some repairs, such as torsion spring replacement, are better to be left for the professionals.
