Garage Door Springs Replacement

Garage door springs are under constant pressure, and eventually, after years of functioning, they will come loose or wear away. Not all garage doors have the same kind of


springs, but the standard overhead doors used in most residential garages most commonly use torsion springs or extension springs. Whatever type of spring your commercial or


residential garage door uses, our highly trained technicians know how to identify if they are working properly, if your spring tension is off, what the right type of springs your garage door should have, and more.

How Do I Know if My Springs Have Broken?

  •   The garage door won’t open
  •   The garage door feels heavy
  •   You heard a loud snap or pop while the door was in motion
  •   The garage door appears crooked (this can also be an issue with the cables)
  •   There is a visible separation in the door spring
  •   The door unexpectedly stops during operation

How Long Should Garage Door Springs Last?

The average garage door extension springs last roughly 7-9 years, assuming you open and close your garage door twice a day, on average. However, if your garage door is being used as the front door by multiple members of your family, increasing the daily cycles, the springs may only last 4-6 years.

When you have to replace one spring because it is broken or worn out, it’s highly recommended to replace both springs. This will help maintain even tension on both sides of the garage door, prevent uneven weight from damaging your garage door cables, and causing them to wear out faster. It will also make your life easier, as you won’t have to remember which spring was replaced and when.

How Do I Know What Kind of Spring I Have?

There is a simple rule of thumb for correctly identifying your spring system:

  •   Torsion Springs – installed above the garage door
  •   Extension Springs – installed on both sides of the door
  •   Torsion springs work by winding and unwinding the door cable to open and close your garage door. Extension springs extend – getting longer or shorter as they also work with the cable to raise and lower the door.
