What is a spring's life cycle?

The life cycle of a garage door spring represents an estimation of how many times it could be used before it breaks. One full opening and closing action constitutes a single cycle. The average estimated lifespan of torsion springs is 10,000 cycles while for extension springs the estimation is 5,000 cycles. This can help you determine how often spring replacement will be required.

What measurements should I take note of before buying a new garage door?

Aside from the length and width of your garage, you should also take note of how much available headroom you have, as well as backroom. Some types of garage door and openers require different minimal amounts of these spaces in order to be installed and used safely.

Why does my garage door squeak when it opens and closes?

The issue is most likely with the hinges. Check them for damage. If a hinge is bent, it should be repaired or replaced, depending on the extent of the damage. Broken hinges require immediate replacement. If the hinges are intact, you should lubricate them to deal with the squeaking. Applying a small amount of household oil will do.
