Leader in Spring Replacements in San Diego & Beyond
Garage Door Medics is your go-to garage door company for quality spring replacement in San Diego and other parts of the country we serve. Our technicians can complete your spring replacement in 1 appointment with the parts we keep on hand. We maintain a quick turnaround time because our trucks remain stocked with springs of all types, gauges, and lengths.
We keep all these parts on hand because there are so many garage door spring varieties. In fact, the size of your spring can change based on the weight, construction, and width of your garage door. However, our technicians quickly identify the spring gauge you need, upgrading your garage door system with a high cycle replacement. if you have two springs on your garage door, we recommend replacing both. This ensures that both springs can operate reliably without putting extra weight or strain on the other.
Garage Door Frequently Asked Questions
Not every question about garage doors is an open and shut case! But here’s some expert garage door advice from our specialists at Garage Door Medics. For more information on garage door repairs, installations, and upgrades, give our friendly team a call 7 days a week!
Manufacturers measure all garage door parts by cycle. A cycle is one complete open and close of your garage door. Typically, springs are rated for 10-15,000 cycles of operation. This means the lifespan of your springs will depend on how often you use your garage door. Typically, garage door springs tend to last between 8-12 years. However, you can increase their lifespan by maintaining your springs.
The cost of a spring replacement will vary depending on the type of spring you have and the gauge of spring you need. Of course, larger and heavier doors require more heavy-duty springs. On the other hand, 8-9 foot garage doors may only need a low gauge spring replacement.
That said, our spring replacement rates start at $250 in addition to the repair appointment service charge. But you can contact us now to get a free estimate for a spring replacement in your garage door.
There are many reasons why your garage door won’t open, but commonly the issue will be with your springs. A broken garage door spring can cause your door not to open automatically or manually because it supports the door’s weight. If the spring can’t hold that weight to lift the door, you can’t operate it. In this case, you likely need a spring replacement for your garage door to function.
Identifying a broken spring is an easy process. First, figure out if you have torsion or extension springs. Torsion springs can be found above your garage door in the middle. You know you have broken torsion springs if you see a 2-4 inch gap between the coils. Torsion springs also make a loud, popping noise if they break suddenly.
For extension springs, you can find them running vertically on either side of your garage door. If you have broken extension springs, you will see extensive stretching between the coils or a large break.
