How Long Are These Units Expected To Last?
The life expectancy of a spring unit depends on a variety of factors. If the door is used multiple times a day, or if those who are using it are being too rough when opening or closing it, this could cause the spring to prematurely break or bend. In general, springs should last several years before there are any problems with them.
What Are Signs the Spring Needs To Be Repaired or Replaced?
The problem signs to look for when it comes to a garage door spring system would be whether the door is able to function properly. If it is a pull-up door and you are noticing that it is not opening normally, this could mean that the spring needs replacing or repairing.
