Our team of highly skilled service technicians install and repair all brands of garage doors and carry all name brands of products and parts as well. One of the most common issues we see is broken garage door springs. Garage door spring repair is usually simple but should always be done by a trained professional. Springs are usually the first part to break or give out among all the components of your garage door. The springs bear a lot of pressure and support the weight of the heavy door. On average, garage door springs have a lifespan of 10,000 cycles of opening and closing the door. If you opened and closed your door twice per day, the springs would ideally last for 14 years. However, regular use of garage doors is around four times per day, so most springs only last for about seven years.
What causes Broken Garage Door Springs?
Poor maintenance, temperature changes, weather conditions, natural wear and tear, and misalignment over time can affect the durability of the springs. Unfortunately, broken springs can make the entire door useless. Not only is this an inconvenience when it occurs, but it can be a safety risk. Other than wear and tear caused by regular use, garage door springs often break due to:
- Improper Installation: An improperly installed spring will have difficulty supporting the door’s weight over time. All the excess weight on the spring can cause it to wear out faster.
- Improper Maintenance: Properly maintaining your garage door and all its parts can extend its lifespan by several years. Our team services all garage door types, and we can maintain your door and its springs on a regular basis.
- Rust: It’s important to keep excess moisture away from the garage door springs and keep them lubricated. Rust will increase the risk of the springs breaking.
