Why do I need to replace both springs (or cables) when only one of them broke?
When there is a problem on the one side of the garage door mechanics, we usually need to attend to both sides. This is because the garage door must be properly balanced in order to work most efficiently and having an unbalanced garage door can cause damage which will need to be repaired down the line. Therefore, even if just one spring or cable breaks, we need to replace both springs or cables respectively.
