Signs You Have A Broken Garage Door Spring:

Frequently Asked Questions:

Can I replace the garage door springs myself?

If a garage door spring breaks or you think it is broken, we ask that you do not “spring” into action to attempt to replace it yourself. Garage door springs are under high tension and can cause injury or death if you are inexperienced in installing garage doors. If you have a garage door that won’t open, and a repair job that you shouldn’t be taking on, it’s time to get on the phone to Henderson Garage Door Services.

When I request a garage door replacement, can I utilize my original door’s tracks and springs?

The answer here is, unfortunately, no, but the great news is the new parts are company-warranted. If you forgo a new replacement, the old parts will not be considered under warranty. Plus, springs are weighted based on the weight of the new garage door. Thus, due to safety concerns and regulations, tracks and springs are not interchangeable.

Why do garage door springs break? 

Garage door springs take most of the brunt for raising and lowering your door. The coils of the springs hold the tension necessary to raise and lower your door effortlessly. Eventually, through the years, this tension causes a lot of wear and tear for your door’s springs. 

Most garage door springs will last for roughly 10,000 cycles. One cycle is one whole opening and closing of your garage door. If you only used your garage door once a day, this would last you about 13 years. Without proper care or prompt garage door spring repair, your springs will eventually snap, pop, or break from the strain.
