Springs are kept under constant tension to help reduce the weight of the garage door, making it easier for mechanical or manual opening and closing.

Garage door springs counteract the force of gravity to ease the process of opening or closing your garage door. Springs are kept under constant tension to help reduce the weight of the garage door, making it easier for mechanical or manual opening and closing. However, this constant strain takes a toll on the springs, and over time, they may become worn down. When this happens, it is essential to contact your team of professional garage door technicians from H&O Garage Door Spring Replacement Astoria. Our team can diagnose and solve your issue with exceptional garage door spring replacement services.

Types of Garage Door Springs

Depending on the age and how your garage door was installed after the original purchase, your garage door will either have torsion or extension garage door springs. Here is more information on the two types of springs:

Torsion Garage Door Springs

Torsion springs are typically mounted above the door, though on older homes they could be mounted to the rear of the garage to take up less space. (This is known as a rear-mounted torsion.) A torsion spring’s job is to help balance the door, allowing it to open and close with the same amount of pressure and reduce the risk of placing too much strain on the opener.

How Does It Work?

Torsion springs are placed above the door with a metal tube running through the center that has drums on either side of the tubing. When the garage door is closed, the drums move with the cables connected to the bottom of the door to wind the springs back up, creating stored energy. As the garage door opens, the springs unwind, releasing the energy and allowing the garage door to open. As the door rolls overhead to the opening position, the spring unwinds, losing power and strain until it is needed again. The rate at which this process happens is known as inches pounds per turn (IPPT).

Spring Warranty

Spring Warranty

IPPT is based on the height and weight of the door along with the radius of the tracks and drums. If your garage door is properly balanced, then the springs should last a household up to 10,000 open and close cycles.

The lifespan of a torsion spring can be anywhere from 3 to 5 years depending on maintenance and how many open and close cycles you are using per day. (If you are using your garage door more than 4 times a day, the life expectancy will decrease due to the amount of strain being put on the springs. This could result in your torsion spring having a lifespan of 2-3 years.)

Extension Springs

Extension springs can be mounted horizontally running from the back of the garage door track to the front. They operate by pulling the garage door upwards against the force of gravity to support the weight. This is accomplished thanks to a pulley system. The pulley system allows the springs to stretch as the door closes, allowing the door to gradually close instead of slamming down.

Extension springs can last a homeowner anywhere from 7 to 9 years and their life expectancy can either be extended or lessened depending on how much you use your garage door.

How Do I Know When My Springs Need Adjustments?

You should always have your springs inspected/rebalanced at least once a year. This helps ensure that your garage door springs are strong enough to continue operating correctly. However, inclement weather , overuse, and age can negatively affect your garage door spring, making it necessary to call in help for adjustments or a replacement, if the springs are damaged. The dedicated team of garage door technicians at H&O Garage Door can help you — literally — get your garage door back on track. Here are some of the signs for which to look:

Torsion Springs Damage Symptoms

It is extremely important to rebalance your torsion springs 2 years after installation. Rebalancing helps ensure that your garage door springs are still set in the correct position to accommodate the weight of your garage door after they have settled.

If your garage door is not staying in place when you open or close it, this could be an indication that your springs are beginning to fail. A failing garage door spring needs to be rebalanced to ensure that the garage door will not suddenly slam down when released from the opener.

Extension Springs

Extension springs are a bit easier to tell whether or not they need to be replaced. Visually inspect your garage door springs. If you notice any gaps within the coils, this is a strong indicator that the spring itself is weakening and needs to either be replaced.

If you have an older home with one-piece garage doors, we recommend investing in a door replacement with new torsion springs. One-piece garage doors were found to be dangerous and are no longer being manufactured. Our team can give you a free estimate on a garage door replacement and can install a beautiful and safe new garage door and springs that will last your family for years to come.

Garage Door Spring Repair Douglaston NY

Extension Springs Douglaston  NY Garage Door

The extension spring looks like the old fashion box spring you see in mattresses. They are located at the sides of the door and are mounted on the  swing arms. They have a hook on each end and when purchased, they will be in  their compressed state. Because they have no protection factors when stretched,  it is the more dangerous of the two springs. It is also more inexpensive  compared to the torsion spring.

Its main difference from torsion springs is that the operation of the  extension spring is based on distance; the further it is extended, the more  force is applied on the spring. It can last from 5,000 to 10,000 lifts.

When your garage door has to be raised too high to support your garage door opener, you do not have to buy an entirely new electric opener. You can save money by simply purchasing garage door extension spring replacements and cables. The extension cables allow you to raise the garage door to heights of 7 feet or 8 feet, or you can buy full extension springs for garage doors that range in height from 78 in. to 84 in. The lightest of these springs supports balance weights of 50 lbs., while the strongest of them supports balance weights of 250 lbs.

In addition to cables and springs, you can also purchase any supporting hardware that may be required. Cable pulley wheels are very inexpensive, and if you don’t know how heavy your garage door is, you may need a counter balance lever arm to weigh it.

Torsion Springs Douglaston NY Garage Door

Torsion or Torque springs are twisting steel which retains the force in the  twist of the internal bar. If you think of the old fashioned mouse trap you have  the idea. The power is created by twisting the mouse trap under pressure. The  torsion spring's force is proportional to how the torque in the twist.   This is usually an enclosed unit and thus safer than the loose spring. Torsion  springs are located at the upper section of the door and are usually mounted on  the door header. This kind of spring will be the far stronger of the two and can  lift a weight up to 500 lbs. It has a lifespan of approximate 20,000 lifts.

Any homeowners will at some point experience broken garage door torsion springs that must be replaced. The average torsion spring lasts for about 10,000 cycles of opening and closing the garage door. This is because of the amount of pressure that is put on these springs on a regular basis. If you are in need of a garage door torsion spring replacement please contact us to make an appointment and get professional service and affordable price.

Queens - Brooklyn - Long Island - Bronx - New Jersey 

Problem #1: Malfunctioning Photo-Eyes

A common reason for a garage door not closing can be a malfunctioning photo-eye. Photo eyes are there to keep the garage door from closing if an object passes through the infrared beams. Photo-eyes need to be lined up correctly, if the alignment is thrown off it may cause your garage door to not close. Also, if the lens on one or both of the photo eyes is dirty with debris, this can also cause your garage door to not operate. With both of these scenarios, your photo-eyes system assumes that there is an obstruction in the door. If your photo eye is flashing that means an obstruction is in the path of the door. Remove the debris and adjust the photo-eye until the indicator light is no longer flashing. Your door should now properly operate. If you need any assistant you can call us H&O Garage Door Repair at 718-7106468.


Problem #2: Broken Spring 


Another common reason for your garage door not working is a broken spring. A spring provides tension to help your garage door opener lift your garage door. This is an issue you can usually diagnose fairly easily. Springs are typically directly above the garage door near the wall. It’s important to note that if you have two springs on your garage door, you’ll most likely need to have both springs replaced.​

Note: Please do not attempt to repair or replace a spring on your own, call a professional company​. Call Us H&O Garage Door Repair  at 718-7106468.


Problem #3: Malfunctioning Remote Control

If you’ve discovered that there’s no issue with your photo-eyes or garage door spring, another thing to check is your remote control to your garage door opener. If you find that it’s only one garage door remote that doesn’t work correctly, your remote may just need a new battery. If you replace the battery in the remote and it still doesn’t work, give a reputable garage door company a call to diagnose the problem.  Call Us H&O Garage Door Repair at 718-7106468.

Problem #4: Noisy Garage Door

Noisy doors are very common and there can be a couple of reasons why your garage door is noisy. This issue can sometimes be fixed with a manufacturer recommended lubricant. Rollers and springs should be lubricated regularly to keep these parts running smoothly for many years. If this isn’t the issue then contact us H&O Garage Door at 718-7106468 to assist you with diagnosing the issue as you may need a replacement part for your garage door system with a fair prices and professional technicians.
