Do you have a broken garage door spring in your home or business’s garage door system? If so, you’re probably wondering how to go about repairing it. Here at ADCO Garage Doors, we encourage you to not attempt a repair by yourself — instead, trust a professional to get the job done.

First Identify Which Type of Garage Door Spring You Have:

Broken Torsion

Torsion: Spring runs across a bar at the top of the inside of the garage door. The spring is wound and under immense tension. It’s the tension of the torsion spring that lifts the weight of the garage door.

Torsion springs are designed to last for about 10,000 cycles, or about 10-12 years of normal use. The springs of your garage door are actually part of the door itself and not the door opener. 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.

Extension: Springs are on either side of the door, perpendicular to it. These springs act like big, steel rubber bands, stretching as the garage door is lowered. The natural tendency of the stretched spring is to lift the door.

Do You Have a Broken Garage Door Springs?

A spring breaking is loud. If you hear a loud bang when opening or closing your garage door, it’s probably a broken spring.

Garage door springs are one of the most called on repairs in the garage door industry. In general, garage door springs last for a long period of time in that they only have one function. However, as time goes on, all the lifting and wear it undergoes cause the metal to weaken and eventually break. The springs of your garage door are dangerous; do not be tempted to repair the garage doors spring on your own because it could lead to serious injury.
