Garage door springs cannot be repaired if they are damaged or aged and causing problems with your door. Leaving broken or damaged garage door springs unattended is dangerous and can cause your door to fall unexpectedly. If you are unsure if your garage door springs are broken or damaged but you suspect a problem, contact us immediately for a free emergency inspection. Some indicators that there is a problem with your garage door springs include:
- Garage door feels heavier
- Garage door appears unbalanced
- Garage door cables appear loose
Other factors may not be as obvious, so it is best to have your garage door serviced regularly to avoid issues with your springs. Contact Iconic Garage Door Services to learn more about our garage door maintenance and lube services.
If you have two garage door springs and one of them is broken or damaged, it is recommended to replace both springs to avoid additional problems in the near future. If you only replace the damaged spring and the second spring was installed at the same time as the broken spring, the new spring will overcompensate for the age of the older spring, which will cause damage to the one that wasn’t replaced quickly, requiring additional replacement.

Type of Garage Door Springs
TORSION SPRINGSYou can find these springs above the garage door attached to a shaft. At each end of this shaft is a winding cone that the spring attaches to. The other end of the spring is a stationary cone to help stabilize the mechanism. The types of torsion springs are: Standard: A standard torsion spring often comes at a fixed diameter. The measurements are 1.75 x 2.25 inches in diameter. Early Set: An early set spring attaches at the center of the torsion shaft. Most residential garage doors are early set. Steel Rolling Door: These types of springs are common in commercial locations. You’ll find a torsion barrel supporting a larger one. The barrel has multiple springs.
EXTENSION SPRINGSThe extension spring expands and contracts at the garage door tracks. They run along the ceiling on each side of the door. Most of the time, these springs have safety cables to help ensure the door moves steadily. There are three types of extension springs: Open looped: It has a looped wire at the end, making them easy to replace. Double looped: The spring has two coils and is much stronger than the open looped kind. Clipped end: This spring has clips at the end to reduce stress. It’s a more durable extension spring.
Garage Door Spring Recommendations
A spring repair requires us to remove all the tension from the door. Size the correct spring replacement for the weight of your door. Make sure your door is level, replace the spring, and reset the drums and cables. When choosing your garage door springs, you have a choice of a galvanized spring for torsion or two oil-tempered springs. We recommend using two springs as they are safer and more reliable. We also highly recommend longer springs. If you take something that’s 22″ long and twist it seven times it’s not going to last as long as a 31″ spring turned seven times. By using 1- ¾ garage door springs we are able to offer a 31″ spring instead of a 22″ spring while still maintaining the same amount of lift with a thicker coil size. So for the same price as our competitors, you’re getting a better spring with a better warranty.
Galvanized springs come from a hot-dip galvanization process. The steel spring is placed into a vat of molten zinc, which is later cooled to form a strong outer layer that resists rust. We don’t recommend these types of springs. Galvanized springs lose tension and bend easily, requiring them to be adjusted often. This will just add additional labor costs that could have been avoided by using an oil tempered spring. Galvanized springs are used in high salt climates like homes next to the beach. Even then we recommend using an oil-tempered spring, then just have it powdercoated to avoid both higher maintenance costs and rust issues.
These springs use oil to cool it after heating. Then it is reheated to temper the metal. This process makes the spring stronger and resistant to deformation.
