Signs That Your Garage Door Springs May Need to Be Replaced

Garage door spring repair is not an easy job. So, here are some signs that can help you decide whether to replace the springs or not.

Garage door springs need to be in one piece for the door to function properly. It is not always easy to spot a snapped spring, however, if you do, seek an expert right away.

Garage springs are in charge of supporting the weight of the door. If the springs are damaged, it will make your door not open or lift a few inches from the ground and then fall back down.

If your garage door is extra heavy when trying to lift if manually, it might be due to a broken spring. This requires an immediate garage door spring replacement to avoid accidents.

Broken springs are sometimes caused by unwound cables.  If this is the case, you should step away and schedule an appointment for a garage door spring repair.

Our Garage Door Spring Repair Practices

Replacing Both Springs

If you have a two-spring system and only one of the springs is broken, you should still replace both. Since the springs work as a unit, if you replace only one of them, the other one won’t be as strong as the new spring.

Using The Right Springs

There are many factors to take into consideration when choosing a garage door spring to match your garage door. We offer only high-quality springs that can last for a long period of time.

Safety Inspection

We always start with a safety inspection before doing the repair. This way, we can make certain all the garage door parts are in good condition and ensure the safety of everyone.

Types of Garage Door Springs

Torsion Springs

Torsion springs come in different sizes and are rated by life cycles. The weight and size of your garage door will determine whether you need a one-spring or a two-spring system.
A two-spring system is more common, since it provides a more balanced lift of the garage door.

Extension Springs

Extension springs are located along the sides of the garage door track. These springs can be very dangerous if they break, therefore they come with safety cables, which keep the spring from flying apart and causing damage. Extension springs are considered as the older spring system.

Torsion Springs VS Extension Springs

Torsion springs are more expensive than extension springs, however they have between 15,000 and 20,000 cycles, compared to 10,000 spring cycles of the extension spring system. Therefore, if you open your garage door multiple time a day, torsion springs will last longer.
Moreover, if an extension spring breaks, it can cause more damage and can be more dangerous than a torsion spring that breaks.

Replacing Extension Springs with Torsion Springs

As a homeowner, it is important to know that you can convert your extension spring system to a torsion spring system. As garage door experts, we advise to install a torsion spring system. It is more durable and will provide a safer environment in your home.

What Not To Do After the Springs Break

Garage door problems are never convenient, and a broken garage door spring can be very frustrating.
Do not try to lift the garage door manually! Many times, homeowners don’t notice that the spring is broken and operate the door until something happens and it causes the garage door to stop functioning. Make sure to seek professional help whenever you know or suspect you have a broken spring.

The Dangers of Replacing the Garage Door Springs Yourself
