There are two primary types of garage door springs: torsion and extension. These two spring types operate differently to open and close your garage door by creating unique counterbalance systems.
Garage door springs counterbalance the door's weight, making it easy to open and close. A broken spring can result in a heavy door that's difficult to operate.
Regular maintenance is key to extending the lifespan of your springs. We recommend an annual 25-point check to ensure proper balance, lubrication, and functionality.
Manufacturers measure all garage door parts by cycle. A cycle is one complete open and close of your garage door. Typically, springs are rated for 10-15,000 cycles of operation. This means the lifespan of your springs will depend on how often you use your garage door. This said, garage door springs tend to last between 8-12 years. However, you can increase their lifespan by maintaining your springs.
The cost of a spring replacement will vary depending on the type of spring you have and gauge of spring you need. Of course, larger and heavier doors require more heavy duty springs. On the other hand, 8-9 foot garage doors may only need a low gauge spring replacement.

That is why you should always allow a trained professional to perform your spring replacement. contact us. We ensure you get a quality repair at an affordable price.
