It is not a surprise to experience a broken torsion spring, especially when it has been used for a long time. The wearing process occurs gradually, and it is possible for one to determine or note when a garage door is fatiguing by checking its balance. As the torsion springs wear out over time, so will the door become heavier. This makes the garage door slam heavily against the floor any time you release it.
Similarly, worn out garage door springs tend to shorten the life span of the electric garage door opener, since the operator works extra hard to lift the heavy door. Replacing torsion springs each year prevents the door from banging against the ground due to its well-maintained condition.
If you have witnessed a torsion spring break, you can bear witness that it releases a huge amount of energy in just a second- the sound too is unforgettable. In fact, most homeowners assess the sound produced to the sound of a shotgun firing. What we are getting to is that all this energy released has to be consumed up somewhere, and in most cases wires seem to be loose and out of shape and they too call for replacement. The garage door will tend to be even heavier which makes it difficult to drive in or out of the garage.
Imagine that the door rollers are similar to tires or wheels of a steel track and there is a vehicle going on the road. Most homeowners put grease in these metal tracks but if your vehicle doesn’t run do you grease its tires or the road? Of course not! But it sounds like a good idea and maybe you would like to try it sometime! The simplest and best way for lubricating your garage door rollers is to use a plastic spray like a little straw and utilize the stems that hold them at the hinges in order to put the spray in a way that it gets in far inside the hinges. This will allow the garage door to move easily and remove that unpleasant grating sound that happens whenever you lift or shut the garage door.

NO WD-40! WD-40 is actually a solvent and definitely will breakdown factory grease and then dry out causing more friction. Friction is metal to metal and will cause quick failures and costly repairs. Furthermore, it lures in airborne dirt and dust to it. We recommend using a high quality silicon spray. The heavier the silicon spray, the more effective. The heavier spray has a tendency to lubricate for a longer time. If you are using your door a great deal, I would recommend using it every 6 months.
