Wouldn’t it be nice if owning a garage door was simple? It’s frustrating dealing with problems that can spring out of nowhere, especially the headache broken garage door springs can be. Most standard torsion springs are rated for 10,000 cycles or 10 years, whichever comes first.
The torsion springs allow the garage door to function smoothly and properly. The tremendous tension that the spring is under, which is why springs are very dangerous to be around, is what allows the garage door to operate. This is why it is recommended to replace both springs when only one is broken.

Caution: Be Very Careful
Regardless of your “handyman” skills, replacing a garage door spring is dangerous and can be extremely dangerous when they’re broken. It is always recommended to have a professional to deal with this problem to avoid serious injuries.
My Garage Door Springs Are Broken! What Do I Do?
The most important thing to remember is to stay calm. A broken spring is frustrating and stressful to deal with, and panicking can only cause more harm than good.
Garage Door Spring Repair Tips
Don’t Force The Door Open or Close: Doors are heavy (weighing up to 500 lbs). To avoid injury, it is best to leave it be.
Leave Opener Engaged: If the door is open, the opener’s arm may be the only thing holding the garage door open. Disengaging the arm could cause the door to come slamming down.
Does your garage door stop when it is going up? Did you hear a loud bang, similar to a gun shot? If so, you might just have a broken garage door spring.
Richmond Hill Ontario Garage Doors and Gates’ experts can quickly determine whether or not springs are the cause of your garage door repair needs. Properly installed, quality springs will ensure your door opens and closes efficiently. They are beneficial to a safely working and secure garage door. We use high-quality, heavy-duty torsion springs for all our garage door repairs.
What do you do if your garage door springs break?
More often than not, springs break after the door has closed. In more dangerous instances, a spring can suddenly snap as the door is coming down, causing it to drop quickly. Your garage door is heavy and can be hazardous if not handled correctly. In these cases, call Richmond Hill Ontario Garage Doors and Gates as soon as possible and keep a safe distance until your door is repaired.
How can you know what kind of garage door torsion springs you’ll need?
The type of springs you need depend on the type of garage door you have – details like the size and weight of your door would play a factor. Our certified technicians can easily determine which springs are best for your garage door and will install them so your door is working again.
Broken Torsion Springs
Torsion springs are located above the garage door and they are what lift the actual weight of the garage door. Most doors weigh between 150 to 250 pounds and without working springs, the garage door opener cannot lift the door. Attempting to use a garage door opener to lift a garage door with a broken spring can cause numerous parts on the opener to break.
Broken Extension Springs
Extension springs are used in a different type of door lift design that are used perpendicular to the door. They are attached to the bracket that holds the horizontal track to the ceiling. They extend as the door goes down and with one broken the door cannot work properly.

To make sure that your garage door opener still works with a high efficiency, it is important to see that all maintenance procedures are followed. If you want to go ahead with routine maintenance checks, give us a call and we will schedule an appointment for you with our technicians in Richmond Hill Ontario. We care about our customers. That is why we always attend to any concerns that you may have immediately. We will help maintain the durability and the performance of your garage door.

We will take a look at your garage and all of its components, specifically the opener, to make sure that they are all in good working condition and you and your family are safe.
Regular maintenance of your garage door opener is a very important aspect. We recommend that you always follow the procedure as mentioned in the manual to ensure that the durability of the door is maintained and its safety as well. The user manual states each maintenance procedure regarding your garage door openers. Most of these are something that you can do yourself. However, there are a few things that require an expert’s assistance. This can be done by asking for help from expert service providers, such as ourselves. Below are some standard maintenance procedures that everyone should perform on a regular basis.
Check every component of your garage door. This includes cables, fasteners, brackets, tracks, and supports. Check to see if you can find any bent, loose, or worn parts. If you do find some but you don’t know how to fix it, you can always call us. Most of the basic fixes are easy and you can do it yourself. Some may be as easy as tightening some screws. If you don’t want to take risks, we are here for you and would love to help you out.
The next major thing you should do is to check the cord connections, particularly the connection between the opener and the electrical outlet. If it is frayed, you will have to get it fixed immediately. If you find that it is a difficult task for you, feel free to get in touch with us and we will immediately send over our technician. Check the batteries in the remote to make sure they’re in working condition. If not, replace them immediately.
Test the auto reverse system of the opener. Do this every month. If this isn’t possible because you’re too busy or out of town, test the auto reverse system once every two months. If you need help with the electronic alignment, talk to your technician. Apply lubricants on the moving parts. Pay special attention to the screws, chain, and rollers. Test to see if the manual release handles are working. This enables you to open or close the garage door when your remote opener is not working. If you think something may be wrong with the door, you can call Richmond Hill Ontario Garage door 24/7 and we would also advise you to never tighten or loosen the pullets, cables, or the door springs as these are under extreme tension and can potentially cause serious injuries.
You will be glad to know that we are always available to help you, 24 hours a day. If you note our reviews by previous customers, you will see that we have managed to get consistently high ratings. Our technicians have all undergone background checks and have a number of years of experience under their belt.
