Signs You Need Spring Repair

Garage door springs are built tough, but they don’t last forever. Be on the lookout for these telltale indicators that yours may be wearing out or damaged:

  • The door feels excessively heavy when manually operated
  • You hear loud popping, cracking, or banging sounds during operation
  • The door gets stuck partway through opening or closing
  • The garage door opener is straining to lift the door’s weight

If any of these signs sound familiar, it’s crucial to have your springs inspected and potentially replaced by trained professionals before further issues arise.

About Torsion and Extension Springs

Not all garage door springs are created equal. The two main varieties are:

Torsion Springs

These heavy-duty steel rods mount horizontally above the door opening, using torsional (twisting) force to assist with lifting. Often found on heavier doors and commercial applications.

Extension Springs

Sturdy, stretched-out coils run parallel to the door tracks on either side. They physically extend and contract to provide counterbalancing support.

Trusted brands like Wayne Dalton incorporate innovative life safety and installation features into their spring systems for enhanced safety and ease of use. However, both torsion and extension springs operate under extreme tension, making professional handling essential.

Spring Materials and Durability

To accommodate various operational requirements and environmental factors, garage door springs come in diverse material options:

  • Galvanized Springs provide corrosion resistance with a zinc coating.
  • Oil-tempered springs are heat-treated for superior strength and resilience.
  • Coated Springs have an additional polymer layer for weather protection.

The right spring material combined with proper sizing and tension calibration is crucial for reliable, long-lasting garage door performance.

The Spring Repair/Replacement Process

Attempting a DIY garage door spring repair or replacement is extremely hazardous due to the immense stored tension involved. These components should only be handled by trained, experienced professionals like the team at Garage Door Repair Danville.

Our technicians follow comprehensive safety protocols to properly release existing springs and secure the torsion system before removal. New springs are then carefully installed and tensioned to exact specifications based on your garage door’s:

  • Material (wood, steel, aluminum)
  • Dimensions and weight
  • Pulley/cable system and winding cone configuration
  • Center bracket placement

Once installed, the associated components like cables, rollers, and tracks are inspected and adjusted as needed for smooth, safe operation. Comprehensive cycle testing ensures your garage door opens and closes properly before we complete the job.

Proactive Spring Maintenance

While spring replacement is an inevitability, proactive maintenance from Garage Door Repair Danville can help maximize their lifespan. During routine tune-ups, our techs thoroughly inspect springs for:

  • Visible damage like cracks, kinks, or deformities
  • Signs of coating breakdown and corrosion
  • Gaps where springs are pulling away from components
  • Improper tension, binding, or sticking points

With minor adjustments and proper lubrication, we can often restore years of reliable service from your existing springs while flagging any components in need of replacement. This preventative approach saves you money and hassle down the road.

Frequently Asked Spring Questions

How long do torsion and extension springs typically last? With regular use, torsion springs generally last 7-9 years. Extension springs have a 5-7 year expected lifespan. However, spring life depends on factors like quality, maintenance frequency, and daily cycle counts.

Can I just replace one spring if the other looks okay? For torsion springs, it’s highly recommended to replace both at the same time to maintain proper balance. With extension springs, you can replace just the damaged side.

What if a torsion spring breaks while the door is fully open? This is an extremely dangerous situation, as the immense stored tension can cause the spring and cable system to rapidly unwind and slam the door down. Immediately call for emergency repair.

My door has side extension springs – can I convert them to torsion springs? No, these spring systems are not interchangeable. Extension and torsion springs require specific garage door configurations and cannot be intermixed.

Can I upgrade to a heavier spring if I install an insulated garage door? Yes, our techs can recalculate the required spring tension and install properly rated components to accommodate increased door weight from insulation.
