You may never think about this, but the garage door is the heaviest moving object in your house, often weighing more than 350 or 400 pounds! We rely blindly on the rollers, rails, tracks and springs when the door goes up and down, and also often with a car or someone under it while it opens. The part that does most of the work is a spring, and it does it under hundreds of pounds of pressure and twisting. Unfortunately, these springs can frequently break, making the door stand still and trapping a car inside or outside the garage.
While this is a job that can be done by homeowners with experience and the right equipment, it’s not recommended unless you know what you’re doing.
The garage door must always be in good condition. Many homeowners forget that the garage door is a gateway to the house.
