Today I returned from the supermarket and hit the button to close the garage and went in the house. A few seconds later I heard a loud crashing noise from outside and learnt that the garage door spring had broken, and the noise was the door coming down. Oh no!
After a few minutes of unsuccessfully trying to lift the garage door, then checking YouTube for DIY repair options, I decided this was a big job and decided to call in the experts. I decided on a garage door shop that I have passed by for years which was highly recommended online, and are a family owned local business, so decided to give them a call. Within half an hour, the folks from Cedar Park Overhead Doors were at our house, and after another 30 minutes, they were done.
They replaced the single broken spring with two new springs so that if one of the ever breaks, I will still be able to lift the door with the help of the other spring. The repairmen also lubed up the garage door hinges, made some adjustments, and were off. Friendly, quick service and a fair price from Cedar Park Overhead Doors. Highly recommended!
