Oh my, spring has sprung! ... Literally. What do you do? Here at A.B.E. Doors & Windows, the word "spring" takes on a whole new meaning. One of the most common factors that contribute to a misbehaving or inoperable garage door is a broken spring, or two. Although it is a very dangerous task for any homeowner to address on their own, it's a problem that our team of certified technicians are trained to properly repair. Springs counterbalance the weight of a garage door to make the door easy to open and close. Garage door springs are rated by cycle life, or approximately how many times the door should open or close before the spring will break. The cycle life of the springs that we provide and install for our customers have a higher cycle life rating than the springs that most manufacturers provide with a new door. When a spring breaks, it becomes an immediate safety hazard because it will not allow the door to function properly. It is so important, as a homeowner, to be proactive in the maintenance of your garage door, as you would with any other heavily used appliance in your home. So whether you hear the tell-tale "POP!" of a broken spring, or realize that your door is just not operating as it should, please remember to put your personal well-being first and call a garage door professional to come out and do what they do best - provide you with efficient and effective service. To reach our service department at A.B.E. Doors & Windows, feel free to call 610-398-2430 at any time, should you find yourself in any type of predicament.
