Signs Your Garage Door Spring Is Really Broken

The two types of garage door springs are torsion springs and extension springs.

Garage door torsion springs are above the door and mounted to the header wall. They coil and uncoil as the garage door opens and closes, creating tension to help lift the door.

Extension springs are located above the upper tracks of the garage door and run parallel to the doors' horizontal tracks. They stretch and contract as the garage door is opened and closed, providing tension to lift the door.

If these springs are broken, you'll notice:

  • A loud snapping noise - You may notice a banging or snapping sound from your garage when the spring breaks.
  • Springs have gaps - two sides of the spring separate from each other and leave a visible gap.
  • Loose cables - without the tension from the spring, the cables become loose
  • A bent door - Broken springs could result in the top panel being bent by the cables.
  • Misaligned door - if one of the springs that hold up the garage door breaks, you'll see the door is crooked
  • Quick fall - a broken spring causes the door to fall faster than normal.

Garage Door Spring Repair From a Local Top-Rated Contractor

Garage Door Spring Repair

A garage door's springs are responsible for counterbalancing the door's weight, making it possible for the door opener to raise and lower the door quickly. As the springs are under immense pressure, they can become worn out or broken if not properly maintained, used frequently, or simply due to aging.

If your garage door is exhibiting signs of a damaged or broken torsion spring, such as a loud bang, irregular or unsteady movement, rapid closing, uneven garage door placement, loose cables or visibly gaping torsion spring coils, or a weighty garage door, contact the skilled technicians at Safety Garage Door Repair & Installation.

We provide same-day garage spring repair and replacement services within a 30-mile radius of San Francisco. Our trained technicians arrive promptly at your business or home to inspect your system and recommend quality solutions that fit your immediate needs and budget.

    We just used their service today.  Very responsive and showed up on time as they promised.  Also gave us notice in the morning to confirm what time they'd come.  They replaced the spring, tension, cable, etc. The garage door is working much better than before it broke!  Very professional and satisfied with their work!  Highly recommended!

    Very happy with my experience with Safety Garage Door Repair & Installation.
