Garage Door Spring
If you have the experience and the skills to install or in this case, replace, the spring, by all means, go ahead! But if you are staring at it, trying to figure out how it even got there in the first place, you have been warned! Torsion springs have an incredible amount of force while in place, so you may just injure yourself and have more to pay out of pocket for medical bills than for your garage door. Take into consideration not only the fact that the torsion spring may snap again – not because of improper installation, but because you were injured in the process. If you heed this warning, take the opportunity to reach out to several garage door companies and get an idea of what it could cost to have a spring installed. Once you have your numbers, you’;ll think twice before installing it yourself which could cost you dearly. But if you know what you are doing, make sure you take all the precautions before you put yourself in that situation. Keep in mind, some companies offer warranties on their labor, so if anything were to go wrong, you are covered at no cost.
