broken spring twin citiesHas your garage door ever had trouble opening? Perhaps it only goes up a few inches or feet and stops, or maybe it doesn’t open at all. This is most often due to a Broken Garage Door Spring. Garage Door Springs are the lifeblood of the over Garage Door Torsion System; without the springs the garage door would be far too heavy for your opener to lift it. It is not uncommon for garage doors to weigh in excess of 300 lbs. A broken spring was most recently the culprit for one of our Twin City, MN customers. The customer called after trying to leave for work noticing the garage door only opened a couple of inches and stopped. We were able to assist the customer in scheduling an appointment that very morning. After arrival it was apparent that the customer indeed had a broken garage door spring. The problem was quickly resolved within a matter of hours of the customer’s initial phone call.
