If you’re looking to sell your home, it’s important to tackle all of your home improvement projects before you put it on the market. Anything undone can be used to lower the amount you’ll get from the sale of your home. This is especially true for issues that are extremely visible to buyers, like a garage door broken spring.
If your garage door has a broken spring, it won’t function properly.
You won’t be able to use it with a motorized garage door opener, and your garage door may be out of alignment. This issue really needs to be fixed before you put your home up for sale.
The video posted here shows how to replace a garage door broken spring. Note that this project isn’t for novice DIYers. Garage door springs are under a tremendous amount of tension, and they have been known to seriously injure or even kill people attempting to repair or replace them incorrectly. If you’re going to take on this project, follow the removal and installation steps perfectly, and only use the recommended tools.
