Why Do Garage Door Springs Break?

Your garage door relies on heavy-duty springs to operate. There are two different types: extension springs mounted on either side of the track, or torsion springs mounted above the door in a steel shaft. Most garage door manufacturers use torsion springs, but no matter which type you have, they handle the majority of the heavy lifting. Precision techs are trained to replace both types.

Since garage door springs do most of the work when it comes to opening and closing, it’s common for them to get worn out over time. Aside from regular use, there are a few reasons you might need a garage door spring repair, including:

  • Extremely hot or cold temperatures
  • Rust buildup, which is often caused by excess moisture or improper lubrication
  • An imbalance in the door
  • A different component breaking, which makes the springs work harder than they should
  • Improper installation

Never attempt to fix a broken spring yourself. Garage doors are your home’s largest, heaviest moving object. This means that not only are they tough to lift, but they may also come falling down with a lot of force if installed incorrectly. For your safety, this type of repair should be undertaken only by a qualified Precision Garage Door technician.

Professional Garage Door Spring Repair & Replacement

Our trained Precision technicians know exactly what it takes to keep your garage door operating safely. We follow several steps to make sure your spring replacement gets done right on the first visit.

Saving You From Future Hassle

When one garage door spring breaks, it’s safe to assume that the second spring will follow shortly after. Relying on one new spring to do most of the lifting will wear it down prematurely. Precision technicians will normally recommend replacing both garage door springs to save you from any future complications or damaged components.

Picking the Right Spring for You

Garage doors come in varying sizes and weights, and each one fits a different type of spring. If the wrong type gets installed, your garage door will never be properly balanced, causing extra wear on other components. We make certain that the springs we install a perfect fit for your door and confirm it with a balance test.

Making Sure Your Garage Door is Safe

Before we get started on your broken spring replacement, we conduct a 25-point safety inspection to make sure there aren’t any additional damaged components. This helps us find out whether broken springs are actually the problem, make sure your door meets safety standards, and find any issues that could arise in the future.

Longer Lasting, Corrosion-Resistant Springs

In a 72-hour salt spray test performed by a third-party research company, only Precision’s Green Powder Coated Springs proved to be 100 percent resistant to corrosion. Precision installs a weather-resistant powder-coated spring to prevent corrosion and friction. We believe in our springs, so we put our name on them and we back them up with the industry’s best warranty.

"The spring on our garage door broke yesterday afternoon and Precision was able to send someone out the next morning to look at it. The technician was friendly and extremely knowledgeable. He took time to explain everything to me, presented all options, and then proceeded to fix both the door and a couple of other unknown issues in a very timely manner. The company was reliable and quick to respond to our service inquiry on a Sunday, we will certainly be contacting them again for any garage door related issues in the future." - Kathryn D.
