Garage door springs don’t last forever. Factory torsion and extension springs are usually only rated for 10,000 cycles and last about 5-10 years depending on how often the door gets used, and whether they receive proper maintenance. Until your springs break you don’t realize how often you rely on a properly working garage door. Contact Discount Garage Doors today for a free estimate on spring repair! Our trucks are stocked for same day repairs.
STOP! Leave it to the Professionals
It’s very dangerous to attempt to open a garage that has a broken spring. Most steel double car garage doors weigh more than a couple hundred pounds, with wood and hurricane doors weighing significantly more. Minor mistakes can cause serious harm when you’re moving an object that size. Contact us today and one of our skilled technicians will get the job done safely and quickly.

Long Lasting High-Cycle Galvanized Springs
Garage door springs come in many grades of quality. Discount Garage Doors carries high-cycle galvanized springs to provide the longest life of any spring available.
- Galvanized: We chose galvanized springs to resist rust because (unlike all other coatings), it is the only corrosion protection applied before the spring is wound, guaranteeing all metal surfaces are protected, not just the surfaces you can see.
- High-Cycle: High-cycle springs are larger in diameter, have a heavier wire gauge, and are longer than “standard-cycle” springs. Standard springs are rated for 10,000 cycles, whereas our springs are rated for 50,000 cycles (open and close is one cycle). The average family uses the door three to six cycles per day, meaning you could expect 30+ years of service from our springs. The larger size puts less strain on the spring as it works, providing an average of five times more life than our competitors.
Don’t be fooled by the companies that tell you on the phone that their spring has a lifetime warranty. Many factors contribute to spring life, including the condition of other door parts, maintenance, amount of use, etc. Any company that is offering a lifetime warranty without even looking at your garage door is likely not going to be around long enough to honor it.
