Why the garage door spring snapped?
There are many possible reasons why spring of garage doors snap:
- Lack of maintenance: Most of the times, when we arrive to a client’s home to inspect the door, we find that it has been few years since the door was maintained. When you do not lubricate your garage door, you are speeding the process of the parts wearing, and so for the springs. It is recommended to lubricate overhead doors in White Plains once every 6 months. It is a short process, which not only improve the way the door works, but also protect the parts of the door. Maintaining your garage door in White Plains will ensure the smooth and safe operation of your overhead door.
- Number of uses: Some garage doors in Westchester are being used once a day, some are being used 20 times a day and more. How often you are using your overhead door, affect the springs and the door. The more the door is being used, the shorter will be the life cycle of the springs.
- Quality of the springs: If your door is made from high quality garage door materials, the parts and the door will last longer. Today there are overhead doors that can last for more than 30 years, as long as they are made from high quality materials. So when you are planning on installing a new garage door in Westchester, aim for quality.
- Using the wrong spring size: We sometime find that the springs that were installed on overhead doors in White Plains are the wrong set of springs for the door.
