Does Your Spring Look Like This?

Every spring on every garage door will eventually break. It is a matter of metal fatigue, not maintenance. There are many factors that go into how long a spring will last though. Most manufacturers will supply a spring with 10,000 cycles in its life. One cycle is when a door goes up once and down once. If you use your door 4 times a day, that would be two adults leaving at different times and returning at different times, you will cross 10,000 uses in 2,500 days, or less than 7 years.
