The answer is a big NO! Here’s why:
Just like most other things that need maintenence, your garage door will likely cost more to repair if it is ignored. Case in point: We recently went out on a call for a broken spring, something we do a lot. The homewoner stated that one of the springs had been broken for six months, but the door continued to work. So they kept using it. By the time we got there, not only did we replace the springs, but the top section of his door and the gears inside the opener, almost tripling the cost of the spring job. And this happens all the time.
Don’t postpone getting your door fixed!
