We fully understand that torsion springs are a critical component of your garage door system. These springs bear the weight and pressure of your garage door, which can be substantial. Over time, due to extended use, torsion springs can exhibit signs of wear and tear, such as stretching.

On average, a torsion spring is designed to withstand around 10,000 cycles. That’s why we offer comprehensive garage door services, including emergency assistance for broken torsion springs, safety inspections, and replacements.

Standard Garage Door Torsion Spring Replacement Services in DFW, Texas

A torsion spring is a vital component that operates under torsion, which involves twisting. It exerts an opposing force proportional to the angle and amount of twist. Each spring is securely anchored to the wall and connected to a stationary cone and a winding cone. During the installation of torsion springs, the coils must be carefully secured and wound to generate the necessary torque for balanced force distribution. This torque is then transferred to a cable drum, which, in turn, pulls a cable attached to the bottom of the garage door, allowing it to lift smoothly.

Unlike the garage door opener, which can be used to operate the door manually in case of malfunction, when your garage door’s torsion springs are damaged, improperly wound, or broken, the entire garage door system becomes inoperative. In such situations, it’s imperative to call a trained professional to replace the springs to avoid potential serious damage or even injury.

Common Garage Door Torsion Springs Questions:

Do I Need 1 or 2 Garage Door Torsion Springs? The need for one or two garage door torsion springs depends on the type of door.

Any door with an interior diameter (ID) of 1-3/4″ with .250 wire or larger, or 2″ ID with .2625 wire or thicker, should typically be equipped with two garage door torsion springs.

The reason is straightforward: while the initial cost difference during installation is minimal, the potential for damage and costs down the road is substantial.

Garage door systems with larger wired systems and a single spring tend to experience cable breakage, drum damage, and steel section damage, all of which are significantly costlier than converting to a two-torsion spring system.

Can I Replace Just One of Two Torsion Springs?

While it is possible to replace just one torsion spring, it is strongly recommended to replace both springs when one is replaced, provided that both springs are of the same type and were installed on the same initial date. This is because they are likely to have a similar approximate life cycle. When one spring is replaced, it applies excessive force on the other, shortening its lifespan. Additionally, replacing both springs simultaneously can save you time and additional costs in the long run.

On the other hand, if you have two or more springs of different sizes, their lifecycles can vary significantly. In such cases, you may only need to replace the damaged spring. However, keep in mind that when one spring is damaged, it can drastically affect the remaining spring’s lifespan due to the increased force applied to it. Thus, if possible, it is advisable to replace both springs simultaneously to avoid future complications.

Can I Use 2 Different Springs?

Some garage door systems use springs with different diameters and lengths. However, for most residential garage door systems, two identical springs are usually the best choice. Matching the torque by using identical springs can optimize the lifecycle of your torsion springs. If your system already has two unmatched springs, it is possible to adjust their proportional torque to maximize their lifespan. We offer these services, including spring conversion and matching.

What Is the Average Lifespan of a Torsion Spring?

The lifespan of a torsion spring can vary significantly depending on usage and other factors. On average, most standard garage door torsion springs have a lifecycle of 10,000 cycles. This can be extended by using two torsion springs to share the load or opting for a commercial-grade garage door torsion spring, which can last up to 100,000 cycles, although it comes at a higher cost.
