Can the garage door still be opened after a spring breaks?
The spring system counterbalances the door and enables its movement. When it’s broken, the door can be lifted up, but those who do it will have to bear its entire weight. In general, opening the door in this case is extremely dangerous. You and others may get injured, while the garage door cables may get stuck around the rollers causing further trouble and making the repair even more challenging.
How long can a steel garage door last for?
With regular maintenance, the average lifespan of a garage door can exceed 25 years. In fact, most modern units remain in good operating condition for 30 years and sometimes even more. It’s worth noting that in areas with harsher climates such as those with very low temperatures and coastal ones, a steel door will most likely have a shorter life.
Why is my garage door closing with a loud bang?
There are a couple possible reasons why this is happening. For once, your springs can be at fault. If they are broken, this would account for the uncontrolled descent of your door. A snapped safety cable can also be responsible for this. Another thing you'll want to get checked is your opener's force and travel limit.
