Panel Lift Door Broken Springs Repairs

One of the most common reasons we are called out to fix a garage door is because of a problem with the springs of panel doors. If you think there is a problem with the door springs of your garage panel door it is best to stop using it and get it fixed straight away to avoid further damage.

Signs that your Panel Lift Door Springs need Repairing:

  • You are not able to open the door fully
  • When you close the door it closes with a thud

We usually recommend that you get both springs replaced at one time. This is because they usually deteriorate at the same rate. By doing this you will save an additional fee to get it repaired.
