Cold Weather Damaging Garage Door Springs
The falling temperatures of winter can wreak havoc on your garage door. Cold weather can be particularly harmful to flexible parts in the door such as the garage door springs. As the metal in the door contracts in cold weather, excess pressure is placed on many of the parts that make a door work properly. This pressure can place an undue load on the springs making them more likely to break. The cold temperatures can also cause the metal springs to become brittle, which can make them crack and break when you operate the door.
Broken springs? Don’t Wait to Fix Them
If the springs on your garage door break or other problems occur during the cold winter months, you will need to have the springs fixed or replaced quickly. Failing to address the problem quickly can result in further damage to the door as well as a loss of convenience if your door is not working properly. Failed springs will also keep your door from sealing properly and cause an increase in your home’s heating bill.
