Broken Garage Door Spring - What To Do Now And How To Avoid?

It is important to understand the advantages of having a trained professional to come in and repair your garage doors. A trained professional garage door technician will ensure that all the necessary repairs are done right, and make certain that your garage door's system is running efficiently and effectively.


Broken Springs are an extremely common garage door repair issue. If your door does not open and close on its own anymore, it may be due to the failure of one of the springs.



One of the most commonly done repair when it comes to garage doors is to replace the torsion spring. A malfunctioning garage door due to broken springs will require a new set of replacement springs for optimal performance. If you find that you can't afford to have a technician come into your home and fix the springs, then there is another option available to you. A local garage doors distributor has springs that can be installed without having the expertise of a technician. But you should read this article in full before deciding to replace your own garage door springs as it can be a dangerous task for one without the appropriate experience and skills. We at Thunder do not recommend you to replace your springs independently to avoid unnecessary body or property damage.



Torsion springs are the most commonly used spring systems in the industry. They are durable and should last for 5-9 years depending on the quality of the parts used, and most importantly the quality of the installation and labor. If both of your springs are very old, but only one is broken, most chances we will recommend you to replace both springs so the replacement will last for years to come. This is because most times heaving one spring replaced with a new one, when the other spring is a few years old, will result in the old spring breaking within a few months only.


When it comes to replacing faulty garage door springs, it is important to make sure you do it correctly. The springs that control the rollers on your door should always be checked and rechecked at least once every 6 months to ensure it is functioning properly. Any time you feel that the door is not opening and closing as it should, it is essential to get a technician to check it out immediately. You can contact our office to inquire about your situation and we will be even able to schedule as free estimate appointment for a repair/inspection of your door's shape to avoid any issues arising that could lead to an accident.


We, and many other companies in our industry are experts in garage doors so we know how to do all of the different repairs correctly. Garage doors are a very important part of your home and they should not be ignored or neglected.
