Your garage door is one of the hardest working components in your home. Just think about how often you raise and lower it. For many homeowners, it serves as a veritable front door.
Now, what’s so important to understand is that garage door springs can be extremely dangerous when they break. The reason for this is that as the door is opened and closed, it’s stretched out or uncoiled, which places stress on the springs. If the springs are old or damaged, any vulnerability could cause them to break — and then they will go flying at full force, potentially damaging property and even injuring anybody who’s in the vicinity.
