Broken Garage Door Spring Repair

If your garage door springs are broken, and you need them repaired quickly, there’s no better company for the job than Champions! Our certified technicians can come out as quickly as the same day to fix your garage door springs, even on the weekends. All of our team members are trained to work with both torsion and extension springs, and we offer warranties on both parts and labor for all of our spring repairs.

Safety Note: If your garage door springs have broken, do not try to lift or operate the door using your opener system. The springs help lift most of your door’s weight, so it will most likely be impossible to lift without working springs. It is very likely you will hurt yourself if you attempt to lift this much weight. In addition, the garage door opener can only handle so much weight, so you risk breaking the gear inside the opener. It’s better to be safe than sorry. Call our spring repair experts instead!

Garage Door Spring Replacement

If your springs are significantly damaged, you may need more than garage door spring repair in Ellicott City, MD. Watch out for these indicators that you require new garage door spring installation:

  • Your springs are split. Your garage door springs should be in one piece, not split in half or multiple sections. Splitting indicates that the springs have snapped and need to be replaced.
  • The garage door will not open or will only partially open. Your garage door springs are responsible for lifting the heavy weight of your door, so if your opener cannot open the door, there may be a spring problem at play. (This issue can also happen due to many other door problems. If your springs end up not being the culprit, we are always available for panel replacement or roller replacement.)
  • The garage door is extremely heavy. Broken springs on garage doors often increase the door’s weight since they do so much lifting.
  • The garage door cables have snapped or become unwound. If you have broken garage door torsion springs or extension springs, the cables will try to pick up the slack and end up tangling or snapping.

Torsion Vs. Extension Springs

Our technicians encounter two main kinds of garage door springs when performing broken garage door spring repair in Ellicott City, MD: torsion springs and extension springs. Find some more info on these components below:

Torsion garage door springs

Torsion Garage Door Springs

Torsion springs are found along the top of your garage door. If you have torsion springs, your garage door will have either one or two springs.

Extension garage door springs

Extension garage door springs

Extension springs, sometimes called tension springs, are found along the sides of your garage door. If you have extension springs, you will always have two springs (one on each side of the door).

Which type of spring is better? In our opinion, torsion springs are the better spring system for your door, as torsion springs are much safer and last longer. In addition, repairing broken garage door torsion springs is a quicker and easier process (although you should still always call experts to do this job).

If you are interested in changing the type of springs used in your garage, let our technicians know. We can convert most systems in order to replace extension springs with safer, stronger torsion springs.

Our Process

Whether we’re replacing your broken garage door tension springs or you need a quick cable repair, we always do the job right. We follow these “best practices” during all garage door repair jobs:

Dual Spring Replacement

If your garage door has two springs, they must work together to operate in sync. This is why even if you only have one broken garage door tension spring, it is crucial to replace them both. Your springs need to be wound the same way to ensure they can work together; otherwise, you can end up causing even more damage. For example, your door may end up lifting unevenly and coming off track if the springs are uneven.

Safety Inspection

All of our garage door spring repairs begin with a standard safety inspection. Our technicians will take a look at your door and hardware to make sure everything else is running as smoothly as possible before we begin garage door spring repair in Ellicott City, MD.
