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:
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 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“.

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.
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.
