I. Visual Inspection for Wear
A. Frayed or Stretched Coils
1. Inspect the coils of your garage door springs for any fraying or stretching.
2. Frayed coils indicate wear and reduced spring effectiveness.
3. Address this issue promptly to prevent further damage.
II. Unusual Noises during Operation
A. Squeaking or Grinding Sounds
1. Pay attention to any unusual noises, such as squeaking or grinding, during garage door operation.
2. These sounds may indicate friction and wear within the springs.
3. Lubrication may offer a temporary solution, but consider professional inspection for a thorough assessment.
III. Imbalance in Garage Door Movement
A. Uneven Closing or Opening
1. Notice if your garage door exhibits uneven movement during opening or closing.

3. Address the imbalance to prevent strain on the functioning spring.
IV. Visible Rust or Corrosion
A. Corrosion on Spring Coils
1. Regularly check for visible rust or corrosion on the spring coils.
2. Corrosion weakens the structural integrity of the springs and reduces their lifespan.
3. Consider replacement if corrosion is significant.
V. Door Doesn’t Stay Open or Closed
