Garage Door Spring Replacement 

BANG! Your garage door unexpectedly crashes to the ground. The springs of your garage door just broke. Rest assured that once the springs are fixed, your garage door will be back up and running just like new. Therefore, the whole garage door system does not need to be replaced. (Phew!)

Most importantly – although repairing broken garage door springs may seem like a simple task, we strongly recommend homeowners do not attempt to perform this repair by themselves without significant prior experience. If the springs of a garage door are installed incorrectly, the door may function properly temporarily. However, unexpected complete failure of the garage door is possible in the coming days, weeks, or months as more and more strain is placed on the incorrectly-installed springs. Above all, unexpected garage door failure from incorrectly-installed springs may lead to significant personal injury or property damage.

Unfortunately, garage door spring repair is not something you can simply ignore or put off. Without a functioning spring, the full weight of the door is apparent when trying to lift the door manually, which certainly makes the task impossible. In addition, should you try clicking the garage door opener over and over again in hopes the problem will fix itself, all you will do is cause further damage to the motor and other moving parts of your garage door system.

Instead, call the experts at AG Smart Garage and trust our team to take care of your garage door spring replacement. Firstly, we’ll send a technician to your home or business and inspect the springs to make sure that a faulty spring is the true source of the problem. Then, we’ll make the necessary repairs quickly so that your garage door is functioning once again.

Broken Garage Door Springs Are Not Your Fault! 

If your garage door spring just broke, it probably wasn’t your fault. Like all machinery parts, garage door springs have an expected lifespan. On average, most manufacturers build their springs to allow for 10,000 sequences of opening and closing.

If you do the math, opening and closing the garage door once per day equals out to about 13 years of expected lifespan for your garage door springs. However, most homeowners open and close their garage doors a minimum of twice per day, knocking the expected lifespan down to 7 years. In general, especially if you use your garage door as a point of entry to your house or business when on foot, you should expect your garage door springs to last for between five to 10 years.

In the future, be sure to conduct yearly garage door maintenance so you can catch problems with springs and other parts before they lead to the complete failure of your garage door. At AG Smart Garage, we offer routine garage door springs repair and garage door maintenance for your peace of mind. When you allow us to inspect your garage door system every so often, we can find parts that are on the verge of breaking (such as springs) and then fix the problem before complete failure occurs.

The Two Types of Garage Door Springs


The vast majority of homes and businesses use either extension springs or torsion springs in their garage door systems. The concept of both types of springs is the same: the spring fights gravity to make it easier to lift the garage door off of the floor, then the pulley system does the actual lifting. But, the two types of springs differ in how they operate, which makes a difference when it comes to your garage door spring repair service.

Garage Door Torsion Springs 

Torsion springs are bigger and bulkier than extension springs. They’re also usually more expensive. However, they tend to last longer, and they’re also easier to lubricate and maintain. Instead of stretching like extension springs, torsion springs twist to offset the gravitational force in order to get the garage door off of the ground. Unlike extension springs, when your garage door torsion springs break, they do not have the potential to go flying across the room, so a safety cable is usually not required.

Garage Door Extension Springs 

Extension springs are smaller, lighter, and generally cheaper than torsion springs. When the garage door closes, the extension springs elongate to assist the pulley system in opening the garage door. Extension springs are sometimes viewed as unsafe due to the possibility of the spring flying across the inside of the garage upon failure. However, safety cables are usually attached to garage door extension springs, which reduces the possibility of injury.

Both types of springs have their upsides and downsides. In short, no matter which type of spring your garage door has, we can certainly repair it. And, if you’ve had this problem before and want to make the switch to the other type of spring, we can help with the conversion, too. Contact AG Smart Garage today to get started. Call 224-306-2985 to speak with one of our garage door repair experts today.

I called late morning and someone was able to come out the same day. I had a broken spring and I opted to replace both springs and the two wires on the side of the garage. The technician lubricated my rails for free. My chain was stuck due to the broken spring and he released and fixed it w/o any additional charge. Great customer service.
