Garage Door Spring Repair & Replacement

Have you heard a loud bang? Does your garage door open a few inches only? It might be a broken spring! A broken garage door spring 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. With so many different spring setups, wire sizes, lengths and more, it is important a broken spring is repaired with the correct replacement. A trained professional at Fix Garage Doors CA will ensure your replacement spring balances the garage door weight properly, allowing the door to easily open and close manually or with the assistance of an electric opener.

Variety of Garage Door Springs

There are several types of garage door spring systems that are the most commonly used, extension springs and torsion springs.

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

Torsion springs are mounted horizontally on a bar just above the garage door opening. These springs are mounted on a shaft that spans the entire width of the door. As a rule, when a torsion spring breaks, these cables will lose tension and pop off of the drums. Again, the spring provides the energy needed to open the door, while the cables, which are attached to the drums, do the actual lifting of the door. If any of these components are not installed properly or damaged, the system will not function safely and in the proper order.

Less popular setups include the Wayne Dalton Torquemaster Spring System and the EZ-Set Torsion Spring System. As TorqueMaster systems have such a short life span from 1 to 10 years, Fix Garage Doors can convert your garage door to a traditional torsion spring system for greater longevity.

Expected Lifespan of the Garage Door 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 come with a 10,000 cycle life expectancy. Your spring replacement frequency will be determined by your garage door usage. Below you can see the life expectancy of a 10,000 cycle spring determined by daily use; for example, the longevity is about 14 years, you use it twice daily, 7 years if you use it four times a day, about three years if it is used eight times daily.

In case, when the springs reach their life-cycle, they may break, effectively releasing all the tension and no longer assisting to balance the door. That is why it is important to never walk under a garage door in motion. Replacing a garage door spring can be very dangerous, and, thus, we highly recommend contacting the local garage door repair experts to handle this repair today.

Garage Door is Heavy and Hard to Move

If your garage door is heavy and hard to move, there’s a good chance you need garage door extension spring repair. This is a common problem and one of the main indicators to us that a faulty spring is at the heart of your problem. We’ll fix it or replace it and restore your door to proper working order.

The Door Won’t Go Up Properly.

Fix Garage Doors CA has come across many garage doors that won’t open properly over the years. While it may be an issue with your automatic garage door opener, a broken spring is the item causing your frustration in many cases. It’s one of the first things we’ll check when we arrive on-site to diagnose the problem. The spring may need a little lubrication, or it may be something a little more serious. Whatever the root cause is, we’ll find it and fix it for you.

The Door is out of Alignment

If your door is out of alignment, it may not close properly, or you may be left with a gap at the bottom when the door is in the closed position. We’ll confirm if the spring is broken and causing your door to go off track. If it is, we’ll provide you with an estimate for the repair work before proceeding. Once we have your permission to complete the repairs, we’ll replace the spring and realign the door.

There are Loud Noises when Opening the Door

If you hear some loud or strange noises when opening your garage door with your remote, there’s a good chance there’s something wrong with one or more springs. Our technicians will find the source, and if it is the springs, they’ll replace them if they can’t be repaired.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    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 there is a lot of potential energy 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, it means that the spring is broken and requires replacement. If you have a double door, there are two springs there 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, model of spring, and the size of the garage door. For two springs, it's going to 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 really increased the cost of springs. Thus, the price may be higher, but not too much.
