Springs designed for garage doors come in various sizes and types - they provide balance to the door and are necessary for lifting the door’s weight each time it opens and closes.
The Lifespan of Springs
Springs do have a lifespan, and since they are used regularly, they are prone to damage over time. Standard springs last for about ten years, but in practice, this will depend on how frequently you use your garage door. Typically, you can expect 10,000 cycles from your springs. A cycle is equal to one round of opening or closing.
Call The Professionals
Garage door springs should never be handled by individuals who don't have the right tools and understanding of these components. These parts of the door are under extreme tension and could cause serious injury if poorly adjusted or handled in the wrong way.
If you see signs that one of your springs is particularly worn, or completely broken, call a professional rather than risk injury or further damage. Replacement of torsion or extension springs are a common service we render, and we recommend replacing both springs if one snaps to maintain balance and durability.
