A broken spring can make it almost impossible to open your garage door. There are two types of springs:
Torsion – one or two springs hung on a shaft usually located at the top of the door opening that “wind up” as the door is closed.
Extension – two springs that each run along the upper right and left door tracks,and extend (stretch) or get longer when the door is lowered.
|Torsion Spring||Extension Spring|
The most common torsion springs have an expected life of about 10,000 “cycles”. A cycle is one opening and one closing of the garage door. The steel spring experiences tremendous force each time the door opens or closes. Gradually, the steel fatigues with each flex, and eventually cracks and breaks, usually releasing its stored energy in an instant with a loud noise or bang. In garage door repairs, most accidents occur during the replacement of the springs.
While many door companies quote a flat fee for spring replacement, we prefer to quote a range and charge our customers for the actual cost of the spring that is on their own door. (Springs can vary in price by more than $30/spring.) Also, if one spring breaks, and they were installed at the same time, it is likely that the other will not be far behind since they both have the same wear and tear. For this reason, we suggest changing both springs at once (we typically replace extension springs in pairs) to save you the expense of a second service trip.
There is no “average” life of a spring, as spring life is based on number of “cycles” and each home uses their garage door a unique number of times in a year. Typical springs are rated for 10,000 cycles (approx 7 years based on 4 cycles/day). Many homeowners could benefit from upgrading to high cycle Lifetime Springs, which are rated at approx. 37,000 cycles. Should these springs ever break, we will replace them for FREE. You pay nothing for the material or the labor. Call us today for more information.
Don’t worry – it happens to everyone, even those of us in the garage door business. Doors are often damaged by someone running into it with a car, pulling the car in or out of the garage before the door is clear, or even by children playing. We will inspect the damage and with our knowledge of all major door manufacturers, will research to find the best solution for your repair or replacement. Our technicians are always available to secure your door until a permanent repair can be done.
All of our service labor is backed by a thirty (30) day labor warranty. Joe Wilde Company warrants that all parts used are free from defects in materials and workmanship under normal use and service for which the parts were designed for a period of 12 months after installation. If the product should fail through defect in workmanship or material within the warranty period, Joe Wilde Company will either repair or replace the defective part without charge.
