Signs You Have A Broken Garage Door Spring

  • Garage door won’t open or close.
  • Garage door is heavy when you try to open it manually.
  • There are loose or fallen garage door cables.
  • Garage door opens halfway and stops. 
  • Garage door slams shut.
  • Garage door moves at an angle.
  • Garage door moves a couple of inches before reversing.
  • Garage door springs are elongated.
  • There’s a 3-4 inch gap between the spring’s coils.
  • There are grinding noises when the door’s in operation.

Don’t Delay Garage Door Spring Replacement

The two main types of springs available on the market are torsion springs and extension springs. Extension springs are often associated with commercial overhead or heavier residential doors, and can be replaced on either side of your door’s opening. Torsion springs are the most common and are mounted above your garage door. A torsion spring will last approximately 10,000 cycles with one complete cycle being an opening and closing of your garage door. This means if you open your garage door 3-4 times a day, the garage door springs should last between 7-10 years. When you notice any signs that your garage door springs are malfunctioning, you should replace them immediately. 

3 reasons why you should never delay garage door spring replacement:

  1. Safety: When a garage door spring breaks, the garage door could potentially slam shut. This poses a huge safety risk for any people or pets nearby. 
  2. Damage: If a garage door slams shut unexpectedly, this could cause damage to vehicles passing through. It will also damage the garage door itself.
  3. Cost: Garage door panels can be damaged if the door slams shut due to broken springs. Also, a faulty spring causes the garage door opener to work twice as hard, leading to early burnout and additional repairs needed.
