What Happens When the Springs Break?
Garage door springs are subject to incredible pressure every time you open or close your garage door. The springs are the component that connect your garage door to its opening mechanism, and all of the parts of the opener work together in unison.
When garage door springs break, it’s often fairly obvious. One of the clearest signs that your garage door spring or springs are dysfunctional is that the door isn’t opening or closing properly. You may also notice your door making unusual sounds when you try to use it. It’s important to note that your spring should appear to be intact and in one piece. If it isn’t, then your spring is almost certainly broken.
Any of these signs might indicate that you need garage door spring repair. Not only can we provide spring replacement for a broken torsion spring and broken extension spring, but we operate seven days a week and can often offer a same-day service.

Our Garage Door Spring Repair Best Practices
Replacing Both Springs
When one of our technicians comes to your location, one of the first things they do is check how many springs you have. If you have two springs instead of one, our technicians always replace both, even if only one of them is faulty. This is important for maintaining the overall functioning of your opener.
Garage door openers rely on a number of parts working together seamlessly. If one of the garage door springs is newer or stronger than the other, then there’s a chance that the new spring might force the old one of its track due to the imbalance.
Using the Right Springs
We exclusively use high-quality, high-cycle springs. All of the springs we use should last for a minimum of 10,000 cycles, meaning you can rest assured that our work is truly a worthwhile investment.
Whenever one of our technicians comes to your location, they perform a safety inspection before starting any work. This is important for their safety as well as yours. Garage doors are heavy, and they have the potential to be dangerous if dysfunctional or unpredictable. The last thing you want is for a garage door to crash down unexpectedly.
By performing a safety inspection of the door before we start working, we can identify any flaws or problems that might be contributing to or causing problems with the overall functioning of the opener. We can address any such issues as part of our repair and maintenance service and prevent further complications from developing further down the road.
Types of Garage Door Springs
There are a few types of garage door springs. They function differently and impact the way your door operates overall.
What are Extension Springs?
Extension springs allow your door to open and close via a mechanism of extension. This is a common kind of spring to find in residential settings.
Advantages of Extension Springs
One of the main advantages of extension springs is that they are often quieter and last longer than other kinds of garage door springs.
Disadvantages of Extension Springs
Extension springs are often less hardy than torsion springs, so they can be more prone to certain kinds of damage or wear.
What are Torsion Springs?
Torsion springs are the other most common kind of spring for your garage door. They function using torsion to force the door open and shut.
Advantages of Torsion Springs
Torsion springs are often hardier than other kinds of springs and might therefore be less prone to damage.
Disadvantages of Torsion Springs
They are more expensive than extension springs.
Replacing Extension Springs with Torsion
If you currently have an extension spring system, we can replace it with a torsion spring system for you. Our service involves completely removing the previous extension system and installing a new torsion system.
It’s also important to note that torque springs are another option as a kind of torsion spring. We can provide torque springs to customers, and we install these with Wayne Dalton garage doors.
What Not to Do After the Springs Break
If your garage door breaks, it’s important that you don’t try to repair it yourself. You shouldn’t even attempt to use the door until it has been addressed by a professional. A broken garage door is a safety hazard that may behave unpredictably, so ensure that you get a professional repair technician to look at it as soon as possible.
The Dangers of Replacing the Garage Door Springs Yourself
If you try to replace the garage door springs yourself, you risk doing the job improperly. This may result in the door breaking or further, more expensive issues down the line.
