Professional Garage Door Spring Repair
All garage doors depend on an appropriately sized spring to operate efficiently. When a spring breaks, the door becomes wobbly and can be challenging to open manually due to its weight. Replacing broken springs can be fatal without the right tools and know-how. When this occurs, we strongly advise our customers not to use the door and call us for garage door spring repair services. We can replace your broken springs efficiently, taking all the worry out of your repair. At Magic Touch Garage Doors, we carry all the primary sizes and install the correct springs for your door.

Garage door manufacturers typically produce garage doors fitted with torsion springs that provide a minimum of 10,000 to 15,000 cycles and are guaranteed for three to seven years. One cycle is a single opening and closing sequence. Most manufacturers offer a 30,000 cycle spring.
However, it is important to remember that if the weight of the garage door is increased by adding glass, additional insulation, or even several coats of paint, the life of the torsion spring may be greatly reduced. Additionally, springs at highly humid environments, such as coastal regions tend to have a significantly shorter cycle life, due to the corrosive cracking.
Other factors like poor garage door maintenance, loose tracks, or components shorten torsion spring life. Owners are advised to avoid applying grease to garage door tracks because that makes the wheels “skate” in the track instead of turning on their bearings. Only bearings, hinges, and spring wire require lubricant.
