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.
