What Kind Of Garage Door Spring Issues Safety Garage Door Can Help With?

We Fix All Known Broken Garage Door Spring Issues

At Safety Garage Door Repair & Installation, we're experts in identifying and fixing all types of issues related to broken garage door springs. Regular maintenance is key to the longevity of your garage door, but sometimes, springs can fail despite your best efforts. Recognizing the signs of a broken spring is crucial for ensuring the safety and functionality of your garage door.

These are common signs of broken garage door springs:

  • Loud Noise: When springs break, they make a loud crashing noise caused by the sudden release of energy from tightly coiled springs.
  • Gap in the Spring:  Springs are connected from end to end and wound tightly together. To identify a broken spring, look for a gap in the coils.
  • Loose Cables: Once spring breaks, it’ll lead to a domino effect of problems. Most of the time, broken springs loosen cables. If you look at the ceiling, you may notice hanging slack cables.
  • A Bend at the Top of the Door: If you try to open the door and notice the top panel bending, this is a sign that the spring on your door has already broken. When the springs are damaged, the door opener doesn't have enough power to lift the weight of the panels.
  • Misaligned Door: A garage door can open even if it has a broken spring. However, when the door slides up or down the track, you’ll notice it's crooked due to the unequal weight distribution.
  • Quick Fall: When a garage door's spring works appropriately, it’ll open and close smoothly. However, if the spring breaks, the door won’t be able to hold up its weight and will suddenly fall or crash because it can't counterbalance the force of gravity.
Types of Garage Door Springs

Types of Garage Door Springs We Service

Torsion Springs

  • Description: Mounted above the garage door, these springs coil and uncoil to create tension that assists in lifting the door.
  • Replacement Frequency: Torsion springs are typically robust and can last between 15,000 to 20,000 cycles (a cycle is one opening and closing of the door). On average, with regular use, this translates to about 7 to 12 years. However, factors such as the garage door's weight, usage frequency, and maintenance can affect this lifespan.

Extension Springs

  • Description: Found above the upper tracks, parallel to the horizontal tracks of the garage door, these springs stretch and contract as the door opens and closes to help the lifting process.
  • Replacement Frequency: Extension springs generally have a shorter lifespan than torsion springs, lasting around 10,000 cycles or approximately 7 to 9 years with typical usage. Their lifespan can be impacted by the same factors as torsion springs – weight, usage, and maintenance.

The Dangers of Garage Door Torsion Springs

As our company name suggests, we prioritize your safety. At Safety Garage Door Repair & Installation, we understand that when torsion springs snap, they can fly out of the door with enough force to penetrate walls, so we never recommend you attempt to remove the springs yourself. Instead, our technicians will inspect the door and repair the issue, replacing the broken garage door spring with a new one that will last 15 years.

How Much Does It Cost To Replace Garage Door Springs in San Francisco

How Much Does a Garage Door Spring Replacement Cost?

The cost for garage door spring replacement typically ranges from $150 to $350 on average, including parts and labor. Minor repairs like lubrication may cost around $100. Prices vary based on the door's size, weight, and spring type. For an accurate estimate, contact us for a professional evaluation that offers both safety and budget-friendly solutions.

Maintenance and Service Life Extension Tips from Safety Garage Door

  • Keep an Eye on the Springs: Make sure to periodically inspect your garage door springs for any signs of wear or damage.
  • Make Sure to Lubricate the Springs: Use a lubricant such as WD-40 or lithium grease to lubricate the springs and keep them in good condition.
  • Replace Worn-Out Parts: If any parts of your springs are worn out, replace them immediately to prevent further damage and wear. It's always best to replace both springs, as usually when one of a pair breaks, the other is on its way out.
  • Avoid Over-Tightening the Springs: Over-tightening them can cause them to break or wear out quickly.
  • Balance the Door: Make sure the door is balanced properly so that the springs are not under too much strain.
  • Get Professional Help: If you're unsure how to maintain and service your garage door springs properly, contact a professional for help.
