If your garage door has been acting more like a stubborn mule than a modern convenience, the culprit could be a broken spring. Springs are to garage doors what spinach is to Popeye—they give them the muscle they need to lift those heavy panels up and down smoothly. But just like any hero, springs can get worn out too.
Spotting signs of spring trouble early on can save you from being trapped either in or out of your garage at the worst possible time. If your door starts groaning louder than a teenager asked to do chores or if it’s moving as jerkily as an amateur robot dancer, take heed—your springs might be singing their swan song. Another telltale sign is if your door seems heavier than usual when trying to manually open it; this means that instead of doing their job, the springs are taking some unauthorized downtime.It's not all doom and gloom though. Catching these symptoms early means you can call in pros like us at Giovanni Garage Door Repair in Malibu before things escalate into full-blown 'door-down' crisis mode.
