For instance, your garage springs are responsible for offsetting the weight of the overhead door so it is easy to open and close. Since garage doors weigh hundreds of pounds, it’s incredibly important to make sure a broken spring is replaced as soon as possible, before it does irreparable damage to your garage door—or worse, someone gets hurt. How can you tell if it is broken, and what should you do if it is?
