Garage Door Spring Replacement Cost
There are two main spring systems that are used in garage doors—torsion spring systems and extension spring systems. You’ll need to figure out which one your garage door uses. Torsion systems consist of a single coiled spring. Depending on which one you need, these may cost between $65 and $85. Extension springs systems are dual spring and are generally sold as part of a complete kit that comes with rollers and tracks. These kits often cost around $75 to $100. If you are able to find the springs sold separately, they may cost between $25 and $40. These are very rough estimates, and the cost will change depending on the following:
● Seller and location
● The manufacturer and the model
