Garage door springs can fail for several reasons, including:
Like any mechanical component, garage door springs experience normal wear and tear over time. The average lifespan of a garage door spring is around 10,000 cycles, which means it can last anywhere from five to ten years, depending on usage. However, if the garage door is used more frequently than usual, the springs may wear out faster.
Proper maintenance is essential to ensure the longevity of your garage door springs. Without regular lubrication and inspection, garage door springs can become worn and damaged. Dirt and debris can accumulate on the springs, causing them to corrode and lose their elasticity. Regular maintenance can prevent such issues and prolong the lifespan of your garage door springs.
Garage door springs are exposed to moisture, which can cause them to rust and corrode over time. Rust weakens the metal, causing it to become brittle and prone to breaking. Corrosion, on the other hand, eats away at the metal, causing it to lose its strength and elasticity. Rust and corrosion are common reasons why garage door springs fail prematurely.
Garage door springs are not one-size-fits-all. It is crucial to use the correct springs for your specific garage door. Using the wrong type or size of springs can lead to premature failure and safety hazards. Consult with a professional to ensure that you are using the correct springs for your garage door.
Cheap, low-quality garage door springs may be appealing due to their lower price point, but they are more likely to fail prematurely. High-quality garage door springs are made from durable materials and are designed to withstand daily use. Investing in quality springs can save you money and prevent safety hazards in the long run.
Garage door springs must be installed correctly to ensure their proper function. If springs are installed incorrectly or are mismatched with the weight of the garage door, it can lead to premature failure. Always have a professional installer handle the installation of your garage door springs to avoid these issues.
Garage door springs are designed to carry a specific weight limit. Overloading them with excessive weight can cause them to fail prematurely. Be mindful of the weight of your garage door and avoid overloading it with heavy items.
Garage door springs are susceptible to extreme temperature changes. In cold temperatures, the metal can contract, causing the springs to become brittle and prone to breakage. In hot temperatures, the metal can expand, causing the springs to lose their elasticity. These extreme temperature changes can weaken the springs and lead to premature failure.
Physical damage to garage door springs is another common reason for their failure. Damage can occur due to accidental impact, improper use, or wear and tear. Any damage to the springs can compromise their integrity and lead to safety hazards. If you notice any signs of physical damage to your garage door springs, have them replaced immediately.
At Blue Pro Garage, we follow a thorough process for garage door spring replacement that ensures your safety and satisfaction. Here are the steps we take:
Before we start replacing the garage door spring, we perform a thorough inspection of the entire door system to determine the cause of the spring breakage and assess the condition of other parts. This step helps us identify any potential problems that could cause future damage or safety hazards.
Once we’ve assessed the situation, we secure the door in place to prevent it from falling or moving during the replacement process. We use locking pliers and clamps to hold the door securely in place.
Using specialized tools, we carefully remove the broken spring from the door system. We take extra care to ensure that the spring doesn’t snap or release any tension, which could be dangerous.
We then install a new spring that’s the right size and strength for your door. We take precise measurements to ensure that the spring fits perfectly and works as it should.
After the new spring is installed, we test the door to ensure that it opens and closes smoothly and that the spring is working correctly. We also lubricate all moving parts of the door to reduce friction and ensure long-lasting performance.
There are several reasons why you should choose us for your garage door spring replacement needs.
Garage door springs are an essential part of a garage door system that help lift and lower the door smoothly. Over time, the constant opening and closing of the garage door puts wear and tear on the springs, causing them to eventually break or lose tension. When this happens, the garage door will not function properly and the springs will need to be replaced.
One way to tell if your garage door springs need to be replaced is if your garage door opens or closes slower than usual or makes unusual sounds when in operation. You may also notice that the garage door appears to be sagging or uneven when in the closed position. It’s important to note that attempting to manually operate the garage door when the springs are broken or loose can be dangerous and should be avoided.
Garage door spring replacement is a dangerous and complicated task that should only be attempted by a professional. Garage door springs are under high tension and can cause serious injury or even death if not handled properly. A professional garage door technician has the knowledge, experience, and proper tools to safely replace garage door springs.
The cost to replace garage door springs can vary depending on several factors, such as the type of springs needed, the size of the garage door, and the location of the garage. On average, the cost to replace garage door springs can range from $200 to $400, but may be higher for larger doors or special types of springs.
The lifespan of garage door springs can vary depending on several factors, such as the frequency of use and the quality of the springs. On average, garage door springs last between 7-10 years. However, regular maintenance and inspections by a professional garage door technician can help extend the lifespan of your garage door springs.
It’s generally recommended to replace both garage door springs at the same time, even if only one spring is broken or showing signs of wear. This is because the springs have the same lifespan and replacing only one spring can put extra strain on the other spring, causing it to fail sooner. Additionally, replacing both springs at the same time can help ensure that the garage door operates smoothly and safely.
The time it takes to replace garage door springs can vary depending on several factors, such as the type of springs, the size of the garage door, and the experience of the garage door technician. On average, the process can take around 1-2 hours, but may take longer for larger or more complex systems. It’s important to note that attempting to replace garage door springs yourself can not only be dangerous, but can also cause further damage to the garage door system, resulting in higher repair costs.
