Why is my garage door not closing?
If you have a garage door that’s not closing, common causes may be a broken spring or a damaged opener.

How do I know I have a broken garage door spring?
If your garage door is only moving a couple of inches and reversing or moving at an angle, you may have a broken garage door spring. You can also take a look at the spring; if it’s elongated or has a large gap between the coils, it’s broken.
Garage door springs are invaluable to the functionality of your garage door. Working in a counterbalance system, they help distribute the garage door’s weight. There are two types of springs: torsion and extension. Torsion springs are much more common for residential garage systems. They’re safer, more durable, and have a longer lifespan than extension springs. When garage door springs reach the end of their lifespan, it’s important that they are replaced as soon as possible. If you continue to use your garage door, it will negatively impact the other garage door parts and cause extra maintenance, repairs, and costs.

Why You Shouldn’t Delay Spring Repair

- Safety: Garage doors are heavy objects that can cause severe injury. Damaged garage door springs may cause the garage door to malfunction, which could hurt someone in your family.
