Why You Should Have a Professional Repair Your Garage Door

Don’t let what may seem like a simple door fool you. If you don’t know what you’re doing and don’t have the proper tools and experience, trying to perform garage door repair yourself can be a big mistake.


You may be thinking, “A garage door just goes up and down… how complicated could it be, right?” Wrong. While your garage door may look simple, it actually has hundreds of moving parts and can weigh hundreds of pounds, so if something goes wrong… it can go badly wrong in a hurry.

Add to that the fact that the most common issue when your garage door suddenly won’t open anymore is that there is a broken garage door spring, and you could really be opening up a can of worms as far as trying to do a Do-It-Yourself repair. And don't just take our word for it because we "sell garage door repair services". The truth of the matter is that when you move into the realm of torsion spring doors, you can cause yourself significant injuries if you’re not paying close attention as you work.


Garage door springs are the “muscle” that lift and lower your door in a controlled manner. Many people see the garage door opener ‘working’ and mistakenly think that it is doing all the work. Actually, it is the heavy duty, tightly wound metal garage door springs that do all the heavy lifting.

The garage door spring (or springs) get wound up to off-set the weight of the garage door. If you imagine a door weighing several hundred pounds, you get an idea of how heavy-duty and tightly wound these springs have to be to keep the door balanced, and how much energy are stored in them. You can probably also imagine what would happen if all that energy were to be released unexpectedly or in an uncontrolled manner, with any part of your body nearby.

This kind of danger and risk is why it is not recommended to try to repair garage door springs yourself.


When you have the right springs for your door, your door is ‘balanced’, meaning if you position it half-way between fully opened and fully closed, it should stay right there. It should not pull itself open and it should not fall to the ground.

What’s more is that it’s not only a question of installing a garage door spring safely and properly, it’s also about installing the proper spring or springs for your specific door. If you think about it, not all garage doors are the same width or height, and not all are built of the same material. Therefore you can’t expect there to be a single garage door spring to put on your door.


The fact that there are also ‘left wound springs’ and ‘right wound springs’ is something that we won’t even get into here and now, other than to say that if you don’t get those things right, your door will not open and close for you. So please, make sure you get that part right.

If this is all starting to sound a bit overwhelming, we have good news for you. There’s no reason for you to go through all the stress, confusion and risk yourself! Instead, simply give Discount Door Service a call and we’ll have one of our friendly, professional garage door techs come out and take care of it for you, usually within 24 hours of calling us - often within a few hours
