Garage Door 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 your garage torsion spring replacement balances the garage door weight properly, allowing the door to open and close manually easily 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 Springs
Several garage door spring systems are the most commonly used, but the main types are extension springs 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 does the actual 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 just 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 do the actual lifting of the door.
Proper installation by technicians is essential, and we at Fix Garage Doors can help you with not just replacements but 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 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 torsion spring replacement frequency will be determined by your garage door usage.

Every spring will eventually need replacing. Always watch out for changes to know when a replacement is required.
