Garage Door Torsion Spring Repair & Replacement

Have you heard a loud bang? Does your garage door open a few inches only? Then you might need garage spring repair! Looking for garage door spring replacement parts can be frustrating and inconvenient. Unfortunately, at some point, your garage door spring will reach its life expectancy and will wear out and snap.

A spring replacement or spring installation is one of the most common repairs required on a garage door. Springs snap, and that can be dangerous. As such, when a garage door spring is broken, it has to be fixed immediately before the door can be used safely.

A trained professional at Fix Garage Doors CA will ensure that your garage torsion spring replacement balances the garage door weight properly, allowing the door to open and close manually or with an electric opener’s assistance.

Our garage door repair services stand ready to help you with this on a same-day emergency or scheduled on-site visit.

Variety of Garage Door Torsion Springs

Several garage door spring systems are the most commonly used, but the main types are extension and torsion springs. Our crews are trained to do garage door extension spring replacement or garage door torsion spring installation, ensuring they can work on any door.

Extension springs are mounted alongside the track on both sides of the garage door. The extension springs provide the energy needed to open the garage door while the cable and pulley system do the lifting. If any of these components is damaged or not installed properly, the system will not function properly.

Torsion springs are mounted horizontally on a bar above the garage door opening. These springs are mounted on a shaft that spans the entire width of the door. The spring provides the energy needed to open the door, while the cables attached to the drums lift the door.

Proper installation by technicians is essential, and we at Fix Garage Doors can help you with replacements and technicians to put them in place.

We can even convert your garage door to a traditional torsion spring system for greater longevity.

Expected Lifespan of the Garage Door Torsion Spring

Garage door springs have a limited lifespan. This lifespan is measured in cycles, with the door going up and coming back down counting as one cycle. While there are various lifespan options, the most common garage door springs will allow up to 10,000 cycles before you need garage door torsion spring repair or replacement.

Your garage door usage will determine your garage torsion spring replacement frequency.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How do you tension an up and over garage door spring?

    Tensioning an up-and-over garage door spring should only be done by a trained professional due to the high risk of injury. Adjusting the tension involves manipulating the tightly wound spring, which can release with extreme force if mishandled. If you suspect your garage door spring needs adjustment, it's crucial to hire an experienced technician who can safely assess and adjust the tension to ensure proper door balance and smooth operation. Attempting to do it yourself can be dangerous and is not recommended unless you have the necessary expertise and tools. Prioritize safety and consult a professional for this task.

    Can you manually open a garage door with a broken tension spring?

    Attempting to manually open a garage door with a broken tension spring can be extremely difficult and unsafe. The tension spring plays a crucial role in counterbalancing the weight of the door, making it manageable to lift manually. When it's broken, the door becomes extremely heavy and can be a safety hazard. It's not advisable to attempt this on your own. Instead, contact a professional garage door technician to assess the situation, repair the broken spring, and ensure the door is safe to operate. Trying to open it manually without the proper knowledge and equipment can lead to accidents and further damage.

    How long should a garage tension spring last?

    The lifespan of a garage door tension spring varies depending on usage and quality. On average, a well-maintained spring can last around 7 to 12 years, with some lasting up to 20 years. Factors like daily usage, environmental conditions, and regular maintenance play a significant role. Springs may wear out gradually, but it's essential to inspect them regularly for signs of wear, such as gaps or corrosion. Replacing both springs at the same time, even if only one is damaged, is a good practice to ensure balanced and safe operation. Consult a professional for guidance on spring replacement when needed.

    What does a garage door spring replacement cost?

    Due to price shifts in garage torsion spring replacement, putting a number on the replacement may be misleading. We recommend checking price comparisons across providers. Alternatively, you could call us at Fix Garage Doors to learn more about what we can do.

    How do I measure my garage torsion spring for replacement?

    To get accurate readings to search for the proper garage door torsion spring repair or replacement, simply use a tape measure to determine the spring's inner diameter. This measurement does not need the removal of the spring.

    Why are garage door springs not a DIY project or repair safety?

    Torsion springs are those things that most people cannot fix or replace by themselves, as this can be dangerous. Such garage door springs are always under extreme pressure. It is wound and then attached to the shaft; thus, it can put your life at great risk as a lot of potential energy is sitting there.

    What should I say when calling if my garage door springs are broken?

    If your garage door is heavy, and you cannot open it, the main reason is your torsion spring is broken. To determine this problem, look at the spring when your door is closed. If you can see a gap, the spring is broken and requires replacement. If you have a double door, there are two springs because a heavier door needs two springs to be the counterbalance.

    How much does it cost to repair or replace a garage door spring?

    The typical cost to repair one spring starts from $200, depending on the type, spring model, and garage door size. For two springs, it will be about 150% of that, so around $350, roughly, for two springs. As we have seen over the last year, the cost of steel has increased the cost of springs. Thus, the price may be higher, but not too much.
