Play it Safe and Rely on the Experts for Garage Door Spring Replacement. The average garage door opens and closes an average of 1,500 per year. Since the springs play a crucial role in lifting and lowering the door, it is no wonder that the technicians at Garland Garage Door Repair have so much experience with replacing broken springs. Extreme tension in the system is necessary for the springs to lift so much weight. This is why it is so dangerous for someone without the proper knowledge and skills to replace a broken spring. Homeowners can avoid a severe injury by hiring a professional to do the job.

Garage Door Springs Lifespan

The lifespan of the average door spring depends on how often you use your garage door. Lubricating the moving parts on a regular basis and replacing worn parts can increase the lifespan but eventually the spring will fail. Replacing the broken spring immediately can prevent damage to other components, including the door opener.

Residential garage doors

The majority of garage doors used in residential applications have torsion springs mounted to spring anchor brackets above the door opening. Depending on the system, one or two springs are wound around a metal rod and apply torque when the door moves as they wind or unwind. This system keeps the door in balance. A system utilizing two springs offers a higher degree of safety. If the door is open and one of the two springs breaks, the other one will be enough to temporarily support the weight of the door and keep it from slamming down and possibly causing property damage or personal injury.

Springs break from time to time

Even if only one spring breaks, it is wise to replace both springs. Failing to do so will put excess strain on the replacement because it will have to compensate for the used spring on the other side. This will throw the door off balance and interfere with its smooth operation. The older spring is likely to break soon anyway so you can save yourself the hassle of scheduling a second service call by having the technician replace both springs at the same time. Some residential doors have extension springs instead of torsion springs. Extension springs are mounted on each side of the door opening or above the door's horizontal track. The end of each spring attaches to a pulley, a track tension adjusting bolt or a pivot pin. The springs pull on the cables when they expand or contract as the door moves up or down.

Range of sizes

Springs are available in a range of sizes, so there is no one size fits all option. The professionally trained technicians at Garland Garage Door Repair know how to choose the right size springs to match the characteristics of any door. Installing a spring that is the wrong length or diameter will interfere with performance and could damage other components.
