Signs That Your Garage Door Spring May Need to Be Replaced

Many signs indicate that you need to have a garage door spring replacement as soon as possible. Once you experience these scenarios in the garage, don’t hesitate to call our team.

  • The spring is broken into pieces

A broken garage door spring can result from too much wear out and use. When this happens, you need to replace the spring immediately to balance the support on both sides of the track.

  • The door panels don’t travel up when you want to open the garage

When the spring is broken, it can’t carry all the panels all the way to the overhead track.

  • The sectional panels became heavier

The lack of support from fully working springs results in heavier slabs. You will most likely need to add extra support to lift the door.

  • There are damages to the cable

Often, a broken spring will most likely result in a broken garage door cable. The lack of necessary force puts stress on the cable, causing it to break in the long run.

Replacing Both Springs

If your garage uses two springs, it’s best to replace both springs in the mechanism. Bigger garages have a two-spring garage door. Replacing both sides balances out the wear and tear in the brand new springs, making the mechanism less prone to damages.

Using the Right Springs

You can’t just pick out any spring from the store and install them in your garage. Springs have sizing and types specific to your garage. We use high-quality springs of the right size so that you can get around 10,000 cycles in the garage.

Safety Inspection

Before embarking on the job, professionals should inspect your entire garage. Sometimes, the issues come from other connected parts in the mechanism. Replacing the spring may lead to more severe problems later.

Types of Garage Door Springs

Extension Springs

Extension springs use tension force to keep the door panels in place. When the spring stretches, the high tension supports the door in the garage.

Torsion Springs

Torsion springs, on the other hand, use torque force. The torque force is responsible for rotating the cable that lifts the door panels when you want to open the door.

Things You Should Know

Extension vs Torsion Springs, Which Is Better?

In general, torsion springs last longer than tension springs. The constant expansion and contraction of the tension spring lead to faster wear out. As the tension springs keep uncoiling, the entire spring will naturally turn loose over time.

What Not to Do After the Springs Break

In many cases, door springs break after overuse and old age. When this happens, you need to find a brand-new spring of the same size to fit the door. It’s best if you don’t attempt to lift the doors manually. Heavy doors without spring support can severely damage the door opener. Worse, the door panels may crash on the tracks without heavy-duty springs to lift them.
