The springs that keep your door moving aren’t going to last forever. They’re designed to be tough and reliable, but they will eventually need to be replaced. As they grow weaker and weaker they’ll usually give off warning signs. If these are ignored, they can fail altogether. This can be dangerous - we strongly recommend that all homeowners contact our team if their springs are showing considerable signs of wear.
Are Your Springs Wearing Out?
A good-quality torsion spring that’s regularly maintained can last for as long as 10 years. However, the cheaper units that are often fitted can last as little as 3, especially if they’re not cleaned and lubricated on a regular basis. This makes it hard to predict when your springs need replacing, so it’s best to watch out for some common warning signs. A door that wobbles or sags as it moves is a dead giveaway that the springs are about to wear out - you should get in touch with our technicians right away.
