Broken Garage Door Springs

The lifetime of a garage door spring is based on the number of "cycles." One cycle is the door opening and closing. The standard minimum per spring is 10,000 cycles. Upgraded springs can increase the number of cycles to as high as 100,000. The typical garage door spring will last 7 to 12 years. When there is more than one spring but only one breaks, we recommend that they both be replaced. When one spring is broken the other one has to carry the entire weight of the door and will weaken faster so it is best to replace them at the same time.

Garage Door Spring Types

The two main type of garage door springs are extension and torsion. Extension springs are typically used in new construction as they are less expensive. While this makes the investment lower, they often don't last as long as torsion springs. Torsion springs are often safer as they aren't in the open. The initial cost is higher, but their lifetime is often longer.

We will be happy to advise you on both options and which is the best choice for your daily residential and commercial garage use.
