Your Garage Doors Springs Solution

Having a broken garage door spring can be incredibly inconvenient and potentially dangerous. Trying to manually lift the weight of it, or using your opener while attempting repair are not recommended: you risk serious injury as well as burning out your opener's motor. When faced with this type of situation, we highly recommend seeking professional support from Trusty Garage Doors – we'll take care of any repairs safely and efficiently.

Replacing a garage door spring is not something to attempt yourself. Although YouTube may make it look easy, it requires professional expertise, special tools, and an understanding of hand placement and body positioning to prevent serious injuries or extensive damage caused by releasing the tension on the springs. Poorly done repairs can cause severe harm - even resulting in severed fingers. Trusty Garage Doors has experienced technicians equipped with all the necessary knowledge and tools for successful spring replacement that's safe for the garage door itself and its users.

Types of Broken Garage Door Springs

There are numerous types of broken garage door spring systems including torsion springs and extension springs. Torsion springs utilize a spring or springs mounted above the garage door opening. The spring(s) are mounted on a spring bar/torsion tube above the garage door spring. The spring bar/ torsion tube also has drums at each end. Cables attach to the bottom bracket of the garage door and then wrap or wind around the drums as the garage door opens and closes.

As for Extension springs they utilize springs that are mounted on the sides of the garage door. These springs attach to the track and through a series of pulleys and cables to the bottom bracket on the garage door. Extension springs provide the power to open the garage door while the cable and pulley system does the actual lifting. If any of the components of this system are not installed or adjusted correctly, the system will not function safely or properly.

Other manufacturers use a different torsion spring system. One of them is Wayne Dalton. Wayne Dalton uses an internal spring system that mounts above the garage door. In this system, the spring is inside the spring bar/torsion tube and the cables wind around plastic drums at the ends of the spring bar/torsion tube. We would highly recommend changing out to a standard Broken Spring system when garage door spring replacement is required. Our field experience at Trusty Garage doors leads us to recommend this because this type of system is weaker and less reliable than the standard torsion spring system. The change of system may involve an initial investment but will ultimately save you money in the long run.

What kind of Broken Spring system do I have?

Another system is the EZ torque system. This system uses a standard torsion spring or springs but applying torsion to the springs and cables is done in a different way than a standard torsion system. When determining how to proceed, there are choices the homeowner has to make. If you have an extension spring system you can have the springs replaced with new extension springs or you can opt to upgrade to the safer torsion spring system.

Extension springs are more dangerous as when they break, the spring can fly loose, causing serious damage, and potentially even death.

These springs have been known to fly loose and damage vehicles and other items in the garage and some cases, pieces of the broken spring have gone through sheetrock walls, causing extensive damage. These springs can become dangerous projectiles traveling at great speed when they break.

Most extension springs today utilize a safety cable that is threaded through the extension springs to help reduce the risk of a broken spring becoming a dangerous projectile. It is advisable to obtain an on-site estimate for a modification to a torsion spring system. For the most reliable quote, please do not rely on an over-the-phone estimate. This modification is the best choice, but it is not the only choice, as you can simply have the extension springs replaced.

Single Broken Spring Systems

Whatever option you decide on, either choice will require a trained garage door technician to perform. If you have a Broken Spring, then you have additional choices to make. Many builders utilize a single torsion spring system. A single-spring system will work on lighter-weight doors, but typically a two-spring system is a better choice

Two spring systems

provide for a more even distribution of the lifting power, which in turn balances out the stress on the other components in your garage door system. This system will reduce the wear on the garage door parts and even the garage door opener. This is a smart option, as with lighter-weight doors, a single torsion spring will work and balance the door. A two spring system is also beneficial if one of the springs breaks because you can still open the door manually since the one unbroken spring will assist you in lifting the door open.

If you already have two or more torsion springs, you can opt to replace all the springs or only the broken Spring. We recommend replacing all of the springs at the same time for garage door spring replacements, but you can just replace the Broken Spring. Remember, that since all of the springs were probably installed at the same time, they will likely fail around the same time.
