Continuing to operate your garage door with a broken spring is very dangerous and can cause additional damage to the garage door and electric opener systems.

What Happens When The Garage Door Springs Break?

Many times a day, your garage door springs undergo a significant amount of weight, tension, and pressure because of the massive lifting. Your spring is constructed of metal, and it can weaken over the years. For these reasons, garage door springs are usually the first garage door elements that have wear and tear due to daily use. Nevertheless, if your garage is especially wet, rust may develop on the spring system and reduce its lifespan. Even if one of your garage door springs has broken, we will fix both of your springs since the springs work together and need to have the same balance and tension.

A garage door spring system is extremely strong, and if you don’t have knowledge dealing with garage door springs, you could severely hurt yourself. Wrongful spring repairs could seriously damage your entire garage door or garage door opener system, causing a much more costly repair or even a full system replacement.  If your spring breaks, don’t try to lift your garage door by hand because it might crash down and put your safety at risk.
At A-Team Garage Door Repair, we have the most highly qualified technicians for your garage door spring repair or replacement. Our certified specialists are familiar with all types of broken spring issues on all sorts of garage doors. Moreover, we offer same-day service and affordable rates.

Using The Right Springs

Whether you’re a homeowner with a typical one or two-car garage, A-Team Garage Door Repair knows how to repair or replace springs. Springs are calculated in cycles. Each time your garage door moves up and down, it counts as one cycle. The more you use your garage door, the more tension is placed on your springs. Based on how often you use your garage door, we provide two kinds of quality springs:

  • Standard Springs: Our regular 10,000 cycle springs are supported by warranty and last for many years.
  • High-Cycle Springs: These springs are longer, rust-resistant, and last many years compared to conventional springs.

What Are Torsion Springs?

Torsion garage door springs are growing in popularity. These springs have lots of advantages, starting from the way they operate, instead of extending and contracting, torsion springs turn which typically results in a longer life cycle.

Torsion springs don’t fully extend when in operation and they last longer than extension springs. They allow for a steady controlled motion when opening or closing the garage door. The only downside is that garage door torsion springs are usually more expensive than extension garage door springs.

What Are Extension Springs?

Extension springs are attached at both ends to other garage door components. The role of the spring is to help lift and lower the garage door and it does so by providing return force to the component that extended it from its original position.
Extension springs are also very common and efficient but they don’t have as many advantages as torsion springs.
For example,

  • Garage doors with extension springs require more components which can also fail.
  • Extension springs should be paired with safety cables to prevent the spring from becoming a projectile in case of breakage.
  • Extension springs don’t last as long as torsion springs

The main advantage of extension springs is that they are more affordable than torsion springs.
