Garage Door Spring Repair - Replace Torsion Springs in Toronto & GTA
Is your garage door showing any of these problems?
- Opening and closing either too fast or too slow
- Slamming onto the ground
- The door won’t move at all – it’s stuck!
In many such cases the garage door spring (aka the torsion spring) is to blame. It is a central component of the garage door system and does the heavy lifting when the garage door opens. A broken garage spring can actually be a safety hazard – especially if the garage door is closing way too fast.
A visual inspection is one way to find out whether the garage door spring should be repaired or replaced. A broken or damaged spring will have visible defects from wear and tear – usually buckling or warping. Rust or corrosion on the garage door spring is often visible.
WARNING: Your garage door spring stores a large amount of force. This coiled force is stored energy that allows the spring to open the garage door. Do NOT attempt DIY work on a broken or damaged garage door spring. The risk of serious injury is extremely high.

How Garage Door Torsion Springs Work
The garage door spring is a critical part of the entire garage door assembly. The spring works together with the garage opener to open and close the garage door. It is the spring that does most of the lifting with the opener helping start the process.
The garage spring is located above the garage door frame. When your garage door closes, the spring will coil and store potential energy. When the garage door opener begins the opening process, the spring will unwind and that stored energy is what lifts most of the weight of the door.
The lifespan of a garage door spring is typically about 10,000 cycles. Depending on how often the door is opened and closed, your spring can last between 7 – 15 years.
The spring is central to the proper functioning of your garage door – the system cannot operate without it. That’s why it is important that your spring receives regular maintenance – to check it’s working properly and inspect for physical damage.
If your garage door is not working properly and you think the spring is to blame, then call a trained technician as soon as possible.
The garage door system is made of interconnected parts that work together. If one part of the system – especially the spring – isn’t working properly, then the whole system comes under strain.
A broken or damaged spring can put undue stress on the rollers, hinges and tracks of the garage door system. To avoid damaging more components it’s important to get your garage spring fixed as soon as possible!
Garage Door Springs : Should You Fix or Replace?
If you have an issue with your garage door spring, give us a call and one of our technicians will diagnose the problem. At Garage Door Geeks we have the skills and experience to repair parts of the torsion spring assembly before considering a replacement.
In some cases a bit of maintenance or fixing the winding drums or garage cable is what’s required.These are simple fixes we can make instead of spring replacement in order to save our customers money!
Garage Door Spring Repair Saves Money
Before considering replacement, it’s important to check whether repair or maintenance can solve the problem.
Regular seasonal maintenance will extend the lifespan of the garage door spring. At Garage Door Geeks we offer maintenance services on a seasonal basis. Our technician will apply lubrication to the spring, which protects against rust, corrosion and friction that causes buckling. This simple service will help your garage door spring last for as long as possible.
Sometimes it isn’t the spring causing the problem. We regularly repair other components of the garage door spring system. Our technicians will inspect individual parts including:
- Cable drum
- Stationary cone
- Winding cone
- Centre bracket
Garage Door Spring Replacement
If your garage spring is over 10 years old – and it hasn’t received any maintenance – then spring replacement will probably be necessary. Our technicians carry replacement springs on their trucks so will be ready to deliver this service if required.
In some cases – especially for large commercial doors or small custom doors, we may have to order the spring from a supplier. We are a preferred distributor for many garage door manufacturers and will be happy to order you the right spring at the best price.
Our technicians are fully trained, insured and bonded. Our repair work is covered under warranty and so are the parts we install. Be sure to inquire about coverage with our mobile management team.
