Amazing service. I called Garage Door Geeks just after 9 AM and spoke with Erik. He said he would have a technician at my place between 12 and 2. Pavel called shortly after 11 to say he was about 30 minutes away. He arrived in excellent timing and was incredibly knowledgeable and efficient. He examined our garage door assembly based on my description of the issue. He secured the main rail properly, adjusted the side rails and greased the system. For all he did, he only charged us for the service call. Garage Door Geeks are my go to place should I need service again.

Erick was very responsive from the onset providing options, estimates and timely responsiveness to repair our garage door panel. Then Yurii came onsite within a couple of hours, addressed all the repairs within an hour and even lubricated both doors thoroughly, explaining what he was doing and how to perform proper maintenance of the system. Would definitely recommend Garage Door Geeks and I will be reaching out to them in 2024 to obtain quotes for installation of new doors. Call them, you won't be disappointed! Many thanks, Nelson

Different Types of Garage Door Spring

Before making your appointment with us, our garage service team will ask what type of garage door spring needs replacing.

There are 2 major types of garage springs that we replace:

Torsion Spring

A garage door torsion spring is the most common type of spring found on modern garage doors. Depending on the size of your garage door, you may have 1 or 2 of these springs placed above the door frame. Torsion springs store energy when wound tightly, releasing it to facilitate smooth opening and closing.

At Garage Door Geeks, our technicians have many years of experience replacing torsion springs with precision to get your garage door back on track. Our parts and service are covered under warranty, and our replacement springs are manufactured in Canada.

Extension Springs

Extension springs are commonly found in older garage door systems and are not so common with modern doors. Older, one-piece garage doors often rely on extension springs for counterbalance.

At Garage Door Geeks, we have the necessary skills and experience to replace extension springs, offering expert solutions to ensure the smooth functioning of your garage door.

Over 15 years in business, we have delivered spring replacement on countless single-panel garage doors – and we have access to older extension springs that are no longer in production. These springs are sometimes referred to as “old style garage door springs“.

Spring Replacement - Frequently Asked Questions

For service in the GTA, we charge around $150 + HST for the spring replacement service. This cost could be affected by factors such as your location, so always get in touch with us beforehand for a FREE QUOTE.

For the replacement parts – a new garage door spring normally costs between $120 – $180. So with the cost of service, you can expect to pay between $270 – $350 for replacing springs.

NO! Attempting to replace a garage door spring yourself is strongly discouraged due to the potential dangers involved. Garage door springs are under high tension, and mishandling can lead to serious injuries or property damage. 

Professional expertise is crucial to ensure proper installation, balancing, and safety measures. Trusting a qualified technician ensures the job is done safely and effectively, providing peace of mind for you and your family.

Garage door springs typically last about 7-10 years or 10,000 cycles. However, their lifespan can vary based on usage frequency, environmental conditions, and maintenance. Regular inspections and timely replacements ensure optimal performance, preventing unexpected failures and potential safety hazards.

At Garage Door Geeks we offer seasonal maintenance packages for your garage spring and entire garage door assembly. Contact us today for details.

Cable drums – Each cable drum is integral to the lifting mechanism, and is located at either end of the torsion bar. The drum serves as a spool for the lift cables, winding or unwinding them as the door operates. The diameter of the drums directly influences the door’s balance and movement.

Safety cables – are a crucial safety feature for doors with extension springs. The safety cable threads through the spring and holds it in place.

Pulley – Pulleys are placed along the garage door track for smooth operation of the door. They guide the movement of the lift cables, ensuring the door moves into place.

Lift cables – are strong cables that connect the bottom of the garage door to the cable drums, playing a critical role in the raising and lowering of the door.

Spring anchor bracket – is secured above the garage door as a fixed point for the torsion spring to anchor. This bracket ensures the system remains in place during operation.

Torsion Spring – is a crucial component that wraps around the torsion bar, utilizing torque to lift the garage door efficiently. Torsion springs have different length and diameter specs for different garage door weights.

Extension springs – the extension spring extends along the sides of the garage door to assist in opening and closing the door with spring tension.

Stationary Cone – is firmly placed at one end of the torsion spring, anchoring it to the spring anchor bracket to ensure stability.

Winding Cone – allows for the adjustment of spring tension. It is located at the opposite end of the garage door torsion spring – relative to the stationary cone.

If you need to open a garage door with a broken spring as a last resort, exercise extreme caution. Disengage the automatic opener by pulling the release handle or cord, typically hanging from the opener rail. This allows you to manually lift the door. 

Use a sturdy object like a broom handle or a second person for support, lifting the door slowly and evenly. Keep in mind this is a temporary solution, which we do not recommend.  Professional assistance is crucial for safety and proper repair.
