So, just in case you didn’t see the title of this post, here it is again: “Don’t fix my springs. Just get rid of them.”
Wow. That’s something a customer of ours actually said. Of course, we didn’t oblige him on that journey– Instead, we educated him on why his garage door would not survive without a set of garage door springs.
Here’s the thing: Your springs are the actual stars of the show. Your garage door is a heavy piece of machinery, and your garage door opener is dramatically underpowered when it comes to the task of operating your garage door. So how does your opener open your garage door? By using the springs to transfer the load an make opening and closing the garage door effortless.
Immediately after being educated, that customer got new springs– The alternative, which is not having a functional garage door, was not an option for him.
