Garage door springs allow the door to go up and down with ease, this is called a cycle. Garage door torsion springs are rated by the cycle revolutions. For instance, a spring that has broken after 10 years is usually a 10,000 cycle or higher. The fewer cycles, the shorter the spring life. John Door LLC provides and installs only high cycle torsion springs.
The more you raise and lower the garage door, the sooner you will encounter a broken spring. A broken garage door spring can be easily diagnosed. Above the garage door you will see a large, black coil (torsion spring) with a separation or you may have extension springs, which are mounted along each side of the door tracks, attached to pulleys and cables, one of those springs will be hanging lower and the other stretched out. Usually the garage door will not open using an electric garage door opener.
Garage door spring repair costs vary depending on the size of the garage door, the larger the door, the higher the cost. John Door LLC stocks a wide variety of springs on their service trucks and almost all spring repairs can be done the same service day, within an hour’s time.
After your garage door spring or springs have been repaired you can expect your garage door system to be functioning as it did before the break. It is highly recommended that all springs on the broken garage door be replaced at the time of service to avoid future problems caused by an unbalanced door and/or one weak and one new spring.
