Broken Garage Door Spring? You’re Not Alone!

It’s early in the morning and you’re fast asleep. Suddenly, a loud noise wakes you. Climbing out of bed you search for the source, but finding nothing wrong you return to your warm bed. It isn’t until later that morning when, entering your garage to leave the house, you see it. The broken spring on your garage door. So your garage door spring is broken and you need to get to work or get the kids to school. Of all the luck, you think, this had to happen to you today. You may feel like your the first person this has happened to, but garage door springs are one of the most called on repairs in the garage door industry. Garage door springs support the entire weight of the garage door. The springs are wound or stretched under pressure, tightening and loosening as you close and open the garage door. It’s the garage door springs, not the garage door opener, that supports and lifts the 300 plus pounds of weight of the garage door. Like anything else under pressure, eventually your springs will break.

Broken Spring Replacement

Garage door springs are critical to the operation of your garage door. When operating properly the springs are what allows a 150 pound door to feel light as a feather when lifted manually. Garage door springs fall into two different categories and those are torsion springs or extension springs and each type helps counterbalance the weight of the door. Symptoms of a broken garage door spring include loud noise(s) when the spring breaks, a large gap in the spring where it used to be a single continuous coil and if the door is being raised or lowered the door could crash to the ground or come off track which could also lead to the cables coming off of the pulley (drum).

How Frequently do Springs Need to Be Replaced?

This depends on a few factors, and can be evaluated on the basis of these facts:

  • Weight of the door: Heavier doors require harsher spring action in order to lift and return the garage door to its standing location. The heavier the door, the harder your springs have to work, and the shorter their life cycle will be.
  • Size of the springs: There are standard spring sizes for specific garage door measurements; however, by choosing a larger spring size, the item will be less strained because of the larger diameter. Smaller sizes will generally have shorter life cycles, and require replacement much more often.
