Some Expert Advice
My garage door won't open manually. How come?
If you're finding it difficult to open your garage door manually, chances are there is a problem with your springs. Garage doors can be very heavy and the springs are responsible for the force needed to open and close them. If they’re worn or broken, they simply lack the force to open the door manually or via the opener. If you happen to be anywhere nearby when a spring breaks, you can get really hurt, as there’s a chance it will go flying or whipping around when the stored tension gets released suddenly. Also, the door could drop as a result. Whatever you do, don’t try to open it if you think you’ve a broken spring on your hands. Let a professional technician deal with it instead.
How much does a garage door weigh?
All garage doors are heavy. Even the smallest one can weigh 130 pounds at the very least. Add reinforcement, glass or other materials and the weight can quickly climb up to over 350 pounds. Then, you also need to look at thickness. Once you start looking at double car garage doors, for wider openings, the weight can topple 400 pounds quite easily. Now let’s translate that to pressure. Just imagine the amount of tension the garage door springs are under to be able to lift and lower this heavy slab on a daily basis for years. Now you see why dealing with them can be so dangerous?
Garage door roller popped out. What do I do?
A garage door with a roller that has popped out is usually an easy fix. Most of the time, all you need to do is pop the roller back into the track. But if you try to this you need to be very careful and make sure the springs aren’t deformed or cracked and about to break from the tension. Check the tracks for dirt and debris as well. The roller may have popped out because of some bending or a blockage, and it’s important to deal with that otherwise the scenario will simply repeat itself. To be on the safe side, you’re better off seeking the help of a qualified technician.
