Garage door spring repair is best left to professionals. Call us at 281-252-3346. The springs have a lot of pressure on them as they are what allows a 150-pound door to feel light as a feather when lifted manually. Improper releasing or tightening during garage door spring replacement can result in a dangerous situation.
Garage door springs fall into two different categories (see example pictures at right):
- torsion springs (sometimes people call them tension springs or tensioner springs)
- extension springs
Both types of springs are coils that help counterbalance the weight of the door. The springs are critical to the operation of your garage door and are often the reason your door will fail to open, especially if your garage door has not been regularly adjusted and maintained. Note that extension springs can be much more dangerous when they break and during replacement. Also, torsion springs outlast extension springs.

How Do I Know My Garage Door Spring Is Broken?
Symptoms of a broken garage door spring include loud noise(s) when the spring breaks, a large gap in the spring where it used to be a single continuous coil, and if the door is being raised or lowered the door could crash to the ground or come off track. If the door crashes down, it can also lead to the cables coming off of the pulley (drum).
If you believe you have a broken spring, please call a professional to diagnose and repair the problem. It is much safer as garage doors are heavy and springs can have a lot of stored energy in them that can cause injury.
