A Broken Spring Can Put a Stop to Your Day!

How do you know when you have a broken spring? Most stories and phone calls we get about a broken spring go like this:

I got the kids loaded up into the car and was ready to pull out of my garage to drop them off and get my day started. I pushed the button and the garage door only went up a couple of feet and stopped. I pressed the remote control several more times and the same thing happened.

WHAT DO I DO?

To properly diagnose if you have broken garage door springs, walk to the very middle of your garage. Approximately 1ft above the top of your closed garage door opening you will find the garage door springs mounted horizontally on your torsion system. The torsion system also runs horizontally across the width of your garage door with the torsion springs located in the middle from where you are standing.

The springs will either be black, silver, or (if they are older) rusted. The springs are made up of coils and will appear as one long spring if they are not broken. If the spring coils have a gap within them and appear to be two separate springs, then you need garage door spring replacement. Contact Meadow Garage Doors for same day garage door repair service!

Give us a call! Make sure you don’t touch the broken spring or use your garage door as garage door springs are dangerous. We’ll provide efficient garage door spring replacement and quickly have your door up and running again. 

We strongly discourage you from replacing torsion springs unless you’re a certified technician. It’s a dangerous garage repair that could injure you, and if you do it incorrectly, it can cause further damage to your garage. 

Standard torsion springs have an average lifespan of about 10-15,000 cycles. Depending on how often your garage door’s in use, this could translate to 7-14 years. To extend the life of springs, it’s important to schedule annual maintenance on your garage door system.

Yes, we will usually replace both springs together. Springs have the same lifespan and were most likely installed together, so​​ it’s likely that if one breaks, the other will soon follow.
