Garage Door Spring Replacement and Repair

If you’re having a problem with the springs in your garage door, Door Doctors can help!

Roller doors, sectional doors, and tilt doors generally all have springs in them which will need to be replaced periodically. Sometimes the torsion springs are okay but the clamps/saddles have slipped due to a faulty install or lack of maintenance – in either case Door Doctors are here to help you with any spring issues your garage door may be having.

Door Spring Replacement

To replace the springs on your garage door you have to release the tension and secure the door to remove the door, roll it out, unpin the hubs, release the clamps, and install the new springs. After this you have to do the same in the reverse order, keeping in mind that it’s a delicate process that requires experience to do safely.

DIY roller door spring replacement isn’t recommended as it’s quite easy to damage the door and since the springs are under tension, it’s quite dangerous if you don’t know what you’re doing. Although it may seem like a fairly routine task, it can be quite complicated – and we recommend you call in the experts rather than risking your safety and the health of your door to save a few dollars.

Sectional door springs are typically rated for 10,000 – 20,000 cycles and when one pair breaks, usually the next one will follow. For this reason, we recommend changing all the springs as soon as one goes. Regular maintenance of your garage door will assist in maximising the lifespan of your springs.

The Cost of replacing garage door springs can vary considerably depending on the size of the spring (modern sectional doors have relatively small and inexpensive springs, but older domestic springs are large and can cost more), so please feel free to get in contact with us if you’re interested in a quote – one of our friendly team will be in touch to help!
