Garage Door Spring Repair & Replacement in Buford, GA

Don’t Over Pay for Average-Quality Garage Door Springs & Warranties

A smooth-operating garage door is necessary to use the storage space a garage provides. One of the parts responsible for smooth operation is the garage door spring, which carries most of the door’s weight, allowing it to easily be lifted by hand or by a garage door opener.

A broken or damaged garage door spring can make it difficult or even dangerous to use the garage door, and it should be repaired as soon as possible.

When you need a qualified team for garage door spring repairs or replacements in North Atlanta or the surrounding areas, turn to Balanced Garage Doors. 

From garage door spring replacements and repairs to new garage door installations, you can count on us for help with any garage door problem, and we offer same-day service for fast repairs.

How Garage Door Springs Work

In most installations, garage door springs are wound around a large pipe with circular hubs at each end, just above the garage door. A steel cable connects to the bottom of each side of the garage door, and these cables wind around the hubs as the door is lifted.

The garage door spring is pre-wound to provide a torsion force as the door opens, winding up the cables and lifting the door to counterbalance its weight. This makes it easy to open the door. When the door is closed, its weight causes the spring to wind back up, storing energy for the next opening while the lift cables unwind and let the door down gently.

A garage door spring makes it possible for a single person to easily move a garage door that can weigh a few hundred pounds.

Garage Door Spring Repair

If your garage door spring breaks or becomes jammed, it can prevent the door from opening or closing properly, or it may let the door drop unexpectedly while closing it.

When you need garage door springs repaired, always call a professional. Because a garage door can weigh hundreds of pounds, garage door springs must store massive amounts of energy, and if the spring isn’t handled properly, it can break free or snap, causing serious injuries.

For safe, cost-effective garage door spring repairs, turn to Balanced Garage Doors. We can inspect, tighten, and repair garage door springs and ensure your garage door is working as smoothly as possible.

Frequently Asked Questions About Garage Door Springs

Common questions that we receive about garage door springs include:

How do I adjust a garage door spring?

Adjusting your garage door springs requires the appropriate tools and formula for applying the proper tension. They can be dangerous to work with because of the amount of tension they’re under. If you don’t have the experience, hiring a professional is recommended to ensure safety and the correct adjustments.

Can you open a garage door with a broken spring?

Garage door springs ease the weight of the garage door, helping to balance and stabilize it. A garage door should not be opened or closed with a broken spring. You risk further damage when operating the door.

If you need to open the garage door, disengage it from the door opener and open it manually. If the door is too heavy to lift, stop and wait for professional repair.

What causes a garage door spring to fail?

The most common cause of garage door springs failing is normal wear and tear. The life span of a spring is typically 10,000 cycles. Improper maintenance and rust can also cause garage door springs to fail before their average life cycle. Proper maintenance can extend the springs’ life and alert you before it fails.

What’s the average life span of a garage door spring?

The average life span of a garage door spring is 10,000 cycles when properly installed. A complete cycle is classified as one full opening and closing. This can vary based on proper maintenance, climate conditions, and the quality of the springs.

Can you overwind a garage door spring?

Yes, you can overwind a garage door spring. Winding a garage door spring requires a precise formula, and overwinding can cause the spring to break, damage your garage door opener, or crush the hollow torsion tube.

I cannot recommend Balanced Garage Doors highly enough. Their technicians are knowledgeable, friendly, and professional and their prices are very reasonable. Balanced Garage installed a new garage door for me a few years ago, and I was very pleased with the service, quality, and price. Today I had an issue with my garage (caused by my own mistake). I called Balanced Garage Doors and the problem was fixed within a few hours! Spencer went above and beyond to make sure the issue wouldn't happen again.

CJ was amazing. He came over, quickly diagnosed our issues and provided several options for us to move forward. The prices were reasonable and he really gave us great opinions on our path forward. At one point, my 5 year old son was in his way and I appreciated how he just went with the flow and was extremely nice to him. Thanks CJ!
