Garage Door Spring Repairs


We STRONGLY advise our customers NOT to attempt replacing a broken garage door spring without the proper skills and tools. This is a very dangerous process and should be performed by a trained professional only.

Garage door springs are under extreme tension and can cause severe injury or even death.


All garage doors depend on a properly sized spring to effectively operate the door. When a spring breaks, the door becomes unbalanced and can be very difficult to open manually due to the weight. When this occurs, we strongly advise our customers to not use the door. Attempting to use your garage door opener with a broken spring can cause further damage to the opener and the entire garage door system. In order to prevent further damage or more importantly, an injury, we highly recommend calling Overhead Door™ for your broken torsion spring or extension spring repairs.

When you call Overhead Door™ you can be assured of the following:

  • Replacement of both springs: Many garage doors are installed with two springs. If one of your garage door’s torsion springs breaks, it’s likely that the other is nearing the end of its lifespan too. After evaluating your garage door, if it is determined that a broken spring is the problem, our technicians will usually recommend replacing both springs. We always replace extension springs in pairs to assure a properly balanced door.
  • Installing the perfect springs: All garage doors DO NOT use the same spring. Garage doors come in many different track configurations, sizes, and weight. All of these different factors influence the type, length, and wire size of the perfect spring. Our qualified technicians are trained to measure and install the correct springs for your specific garage door. After installation, our technicians will check to ensure the correct springs have been used by performing a balance test.
  • Safety inspection: Overhead Door™ understands that importance of garage door safety. After performing a garage door spring replacement, our technicians will provide a safety inspection ensuring all the hardware and moving parts of your door are properly lubricated and in good working order. Additionally, all extension spring repairs include safety cables. The garage door safety cables will prevent the spring from flying across the garage if it breaks.
