Do You Need a Garage Door Spring Replacement?
Garage door springs play the most important role in protecting the safety of your garage door since it is responsible for the proper lifting and lowering of your door (and working with your garage door opener to prevent accidents). Because of how hard they work, the springs can often wear out faster than other parts of your garage door system, and even break. You don’t have to wait until you have a broken spring to do something.

How To Identify A Broken Spring
Here are the most common ways to identify if you need to replace a spring:
- You can hear the garage door opener making noises, but the door doesn’t move
- You heard a loud pop or snap when trying to open the door
We strongly recommend not trying to use your opener to make the door open or close if a spring is broken. The following problems can happen to your garage door system if you try to open the door when a spring is broken:
- You may damage the garage door
- The motor of the opener can break
- You may damage the carriage
- The garage door rails can bend
If your garage door is stuck, it’s likely due to a broken spring. For your safety, we recommend you do not try to open the door yourself. The springs work by holding the weight of the door, so if it is broken, you could injure yourself trying to lift the door or having the door fall while you are holding it.
Types Of Garage Door Springs
Are you interested to know more about how your garage door works? We are happy to explain everything to our customers, as your satisfaction is important to us!
There are two main types of springs – torsion springs and extension springs:
Torsion spring: These springs work by winding and unwinding to raise and lower your door. This constant movement is why torsion springs are usually the first part of your garage door system to break.
Extension springs: These springs pull and contract to open and close your door. They are typically attached to the bottom of the garage door on one side and to your door track on the ceiling on the other end. Extension springs also hold a safety wire to prevent it from flying off if it breaks.
We can help you understand which type of spring is best for your garage door system.
