Garage Door Spring Repairs and Replacements

Every time you open or close your garage door, its springs work together to lift or lower it safely. As they age, they run the risk of rusting and breaking, leaving you with a door that makes loud grinding noises — or possibly refuses to open at all.

Whether you’re just starting to notice these noises or your garage door won’t move from its current position, Viking Overhead can help by fixing your broken garage door springs. Our technicians have spent years learning every function of these vital parts, and whatever kind of sectional garage door you have, we can repair the springs with ease.

How Do I Know When to Get my Springs Repaired?

Most garage door technicians measure spring longevity by cycle rating. A cycle rating refers to the rotation of a garage door opening and closing again. Generally, the higher the rating, the longer the spring can last before needing replacement. As it nears the end of its rated period, the spring should be regularly checked for signs of wear. Visual indications of wear are usually a good sign that it’s time for a replacement.

Of course, when you use your garage door multiple times every day, it can be challenging to keep track of how often it cycles. Fortunately, aside from obvious symptoms of needing repair like grinding noises or an outright breakdown, there is an easy test to see if you need a professional to examine your springs. To do so, try to lift your garage door manually. If it feels heavy or requires you to use more than a few fingers, your garage door’s alignment or springs may have an issue.

Types of Garage Door Springs

When your garage door is properly balanced, you should be able to lift it with one hand thanks to the springs holding the door in place. Most garage doors use one of two types of springs:

  • Extension springs: Extension springs are located on the sides of your garage door near the horizontal track. Having independent springs with multiple lifting points typically make the door run crooked unless the springs are calibrated perfectly in unison.
  • Torsion springs: With a torsion spring application, both sides of your garage door are controlled simultaneously, leading to a smooth, balanced rise and fall every time. Torsion spring systems are what we recommend for any garage door that can accommodate this system.
