Need a Broken Garage Door Spring Replacement?

There’s nothing more inconvenient than trying to leave your home and being stuck inside your garage because of a broken spring. When a garage door spring breaks, it can halt all movement of your garage door completely. There’s simply no way around it until you get a garage door spring replacement. Fortunately, Door Serv Pro offers a broken garage door spring replacement near you.

The Most Common Garage Door Repair

A broken garage door spring is the most common repair at Door Serv Pro. If your garage door has suddenly stopped working, chances are that you have a broken garage door spring. Because this is such a common repair, our garage door repairmen have a lot of experience in safely replacing the springs. You won’t have to worry about your springs once we’re through with them! We make sure to keep our expert technicians fully stocked with the most common garage door repairs on their trucks.

We offer same-day scheduling in Hagerstown, Chambersburg, Martinsburg, and Winchester in order to get your replacement completed as soon as possible. The actual repair will not take very long, so call us today to get yours scheduled!

The average torsion spring will last for around 10,000 cycles—each cycle being one full opening and closing. If you used your garage door once a day, the springs would last for about thirteen years. Since most people use their garage doors more than that, you can expect your springs to last for ten to twelve years.

We recommend replacing both springs together. Since they were installed at the same time and have similar lifespans, if one goes, the other will soon follow.

Important Things about Garage Door Spring Replacements

Garage Door Spring Replacements Can Be Dangerous

When you have a broken garage door spring, your garage door can become very dangerous. The springs work with the cables to bear the weight of the garage door. Since a garage door is so heavy, the springs have to hold a lot of energy in order to allow you to effortlessly open your garage door.

When a spring breaks, all of that stored energy can shoot out in unexpected ways. Your spring could pop out, your door could slam shut, or other parts of your garage door may break.

When your garage door spring breaks, let a professional handle it by safely performing a garage door spring replacement. Our technicians know just what to do to make sure that nothing dangerous will occur.

The Types of Garage Door Springs

There are two main types of garage door springs: torsion and extension. A torsion spring is the most common and the safest. it operates by spinning in order to raise and lower the garage door. You can find it rolled into a coil above your garage door. When a torsion spring breaks, it tends to stay in the same spot.

An extension spring, on the other hand, operates by extending in order to raise and lower the garage door. you can find this spring stretched out on either side of the garage door. These tend to fly out randomly when they break. There aren’t as many in homes nowadays, but you may still see some.

  • Cameron did a great job.

    Cameron is a fine mechanic and personable. Worked efficiently. The lack of the fifth star is attributable to my not getting up-front pricing before scheduling the appointment. I don’t know what the market is, only what it was. The cost difference, from a prior vendor, from 4 years ago was beyond my imagination. BUT……Door Serv Pro provided a great service, on time, exactly as they proposed. Be comfortable by first obtaining a quote.
