Garage Door Spring Replacement – Our Process
Our technicians release springs in sets. This precautionary measure ensures the safety of your garage door. When the first spring breaks, the remaining spring takes all the load, putting a lot more tension it is used to. This will significantly weaken the steel coil.
Once the broken spring is replaced, the surviving spring has to match up to the efficiency of the new spring and as a result, will break eventually.
If you have a broken panel spring, we need some basic information to be able to bring suitable replacement springs.
Torsion springs are chosen based on the weight and the height of your door. Ideally, we would like to know the diameter, the length and the wire size of the broken spring. If you can’t find this information, knowing the height, brand and the width of the door will provide us enough detail to bring suitable replacement springs.
If you’ve got broken tilt door springs, let us know how many springs are on the door in total and whether the tilt door is a jamb or track type tilt door. This will help us to decide what type of springs and how many springs to bring along.
Once we receive your call or email, we will provide a price estimate over the phone and schedule a site visit. We look forward to assisting you.
REPAIRS AND HEAVY DUTY SPRING REPLACEMENTS
Garage door torsion springs normally break when the door is in the closed position because this is when maximum tension is placed on the springs. A very loud bang or crack sound may be heard when this occurs. There will be a split or a separation of about 2 inches or 5 cm showing in the middle of the broken spring.
A torsion spring needs to be replaced with a new spring before the garage door can be operated. If the force settings on the remote controlled opener have been set up correctly, then the garage door should only lift 10 cm or 4 inches and cut out. Also, if you have a double garage door with two springs, only one spring will break at first. We highly recommend that both springs are replaced at the same time because, the spring that is not broken will break at any time.
TRUST OUR GARAGE SPRING PROFESSIONALS
The life expectancy of a torsion spring is normally around 10 years or 10,000 revolutions or cycles. The order of one up and one down constitutes one cycle.
There are many different sizes of garage doors manufactured and installed, so it is very important that the correct size new torsion springs are installed. As a rule of thumb, if the garage door is able to be lifted with one hand and without strain, then the right torsion springs have been installed and tension applied is correct. Any work performed on sectional door torsion springs should only be done by an experienced technician, because of the hazards involved.

Advice and Recommendations
When garage door torsion springs break, you should stop using the door immediately. Although it might continue to function, opening and closing the door will significantly increase the load on the motor. Continued use may cause the motor to burn out, leading to much higher repair and replacement costs. Attempting to operate the door with a broken spring or tampering with the door workings is also extremely dangerous.
Our garage door spring repair services involve replacing the springs in sets.
A broken spring transfers load and tension to the remaining spring, greatly weakening its steel coil and compromising its ability to function optimally. The surviving spring needs to be replaced or it might also break while trying to keep up with the new spring.
