Is spring on your mind? There's something about reaching the new year that prompts people to look forward to spring. Perhaps it's because the warmer weather is only a few short months away. Here at Bluff Country Garage Door Service, we have spring on our minds as well. Here, though, we have more than just the upcoming season with its warmer temperatures and busier outdoor times. We're also thinking about the springs on your garage door and think you should be thinking about them too.


All About Your Garage Door Springs


Your garage door springs are like many things that you use in your daily life: you don't give very much thought to them unless something goes wrong. The truth is that without the powerful springs working to hold your 200-300 pound garage door up, you wouldn't be able to easily open it manually. Your garage door opening mechanism also relies on your garage door springs to make its job easier and reduces the strain placed on the system.


Why Are Garage Door Springs on Our Mind?


Garage door springs are designed to withstand a great deal of pressure over a long period of time. Putting them in this perspective makes you realize how important they really are to the successful operation of your garage door. Unfortunately, they are also one of the most common repairs that we perform on garage doors in the tri-state area.


Garage Door Springs and Your Life


If a garage door spring breaks, your life will be upended. We aren't trying to be dramatic about the situation, only realistic. Imagine your typical weekday. You're likely trying to get everyone out of the house and to their specific locations on time and well prepared. If your garage door spring breaks as your garage door opener is attempting to open the garage door, your vehicle will be stuck inside the garage. You'll have no other way to get your vehicle out of the garage with the spring broken and your day will effectively grind to a halt.


How Bluff Country Garage Door Service Can Help


Of course, if you live in the tri-state area and your garage door spring breaks, we can provide fast and professional service to get it working again. However, here at Bluff Country Garage Door Service, we also encourage you to take a proactive approach to your garage door maintenance. We encourage you to call us to have your garage door inspected at least once a year. During this inspection, we'll thoroughly assess the condition of your garage door springs to determine if they need to be replaced. Call us today for your free estimate.
