Common Questions on Garage Door Springs

Is it dangerous to replace a garage door spring?

Replacing springs on your garage door might seem like a daunting task, but with the right tools and knowledge, it can be relatively easy to do. However, there are some risks associated with replacing garage door springs.


The most serious potential hazard is that of the spring snapping and hitting someone. This can cause serious injury or even death. For this reason, it is essential to follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully and to always use gloves and other protective gear when working with springs.


Additionally, it is always best to have two people present when performing repairs, so that one can act as a spotter in case of an accident. By taking these precautions, you can ensure that your spring repairs are performed safely and without incident.

How do I get my garage door up with a broken spring?

A broken spring can cause the door to become unbalanced and difficult to open.


In some cases, it may even fall off completely. If you find that your garage door is having difficulty opening, it is important to call a professional right away. A qualified technician will be able to quickly assess the problem and make the necessary repairs.


In most cases, they will be able to replace the broken spring and get your door working like new again.

Why & how did my garage door spring break?

There are a few reasons why your garage door spring may have broken.


The most common reason is simply because the spring has reached the end of its lifespan and needs to be replaced. Over time, the metal in the spring will weaken, making it more likely to break.


Additionally, sudden changes in temperature can cause the metal to contract or expand, putting additional stress on the spring and increasing the risk of breakage.


If you suspect that your spring is nearing the end of its lifespan, it’s important to have it inspected by a professional.

How many springs should a garage door have?

The number of springs a garage door has is determined by the weight of the door.


Most residential garage doors have either one or two springs. If you have a light door, a single spring should be sufficient. However, if your door is particularly heavy or large, you may need two springs to prevent the door from sagging.


In some cases, having additional springs can also help to extend the life of your garage door.

Can you replace just one garage door spring?

Most people have either a torsion spring or an extension spring system.


These systems are what help balance your garage door and make it easier to open and close. Many times we are asked, “Can I replace just one garage door spring?” The answer is no.


We highly recommend that you replace both springs at the same time. This will insure that your garage door opener is not working harder than it needs to, therefore saving you money on your energy bill and prolonging the life of your opener.

How do you adjust the tension on a garage door spring?

Adjusting the tension on a garage door spring is a simple process, but it’s one that should be done carefully in order to avoid damaging the door.


First, locate the adjusting screw on the spring. Next, use a wrench to turn the screw clockwise or counterclockwise, depending on which way you need to adjust the tension. Finally, test the door to make sure that it’s opening and closing smoothly.


By following these simple steps, you can keep your garage door functioning properly for years to come.

How do I know if my garage door is balanced?

There are a few simple ways to check the balance of your door.


First, open the door manually and let go. The door should stay in place or gently close on its own. If the door starts to move immediately or falls quickly, it is likely unbalanced. Another way to check is to disconnect the opener and try to open the door halfway. Again, the door should stay in place or slowly close on its own.

How much should it cost to replace the spring on a garage door?

The cost to replace garage door springs ranges in between $150 to $400 for an certified experience technician to perform the task.



The first thing that you need to think about is the size of the spring that you need to replace.


The second thing that you have to think about is the type of spring that you need to replace. These two factors will play a large role in the final cost of your repair.

How much does it cost to rewind a garage door spring?

Winding cost: $40 to $100


Torsion spring cost: $30 to $120 


Extension spring cost: $20 to $80

Which is better extension spring or torsion spring?

Torsion springs are generally considered to be the best option for most situations. They’re designed to withstand a lot of wear and tear, and they’re also very efficient at storing energy.


As a result, torsion springs tend to last longer than other types of springs. Extension springs are also a good option in some situations. They’re not as durable as torsion springs, but they’re less likely to break under stress.


As a result, extension springs can be a good choice for applications where weight and space are concerns.
