Most people don’t give their garage door springs much thought—until they stop working. If you’ve realized that your garage door springs need to be replaced, and you’re considering doing the job yourself, you’ll want to keep the following things in mind.
First, if your garage door torsion springs aren’t working properly you’ll need to make sure you purchase the correct springs. If you order the wrong size, you’re bound to waste both time and money.
The best way to determine whether your garage door system had the correct springs involves weighing your garage door. Most experts agree that the best way to do this involves using an analog scale.
If you’re not comfortable weighing your garage door, you can always call your garage door manufacturing company to determine the door size and model number of your current system.
Be mindful of safety
Replacing garage door springs can be dangerous because the springs are under an enormous amount of tension. If you don’t use the correct tools, and you’re not up to date on the proper garage door spring replacement safety standards, you could be seriously injured!
