Broken Garage Door Springs
Damage to garage door springs can be very inconvenient and frustrating. It can stop your garage door from opening and closing properly and can even make it entirely unusable. On top of that, a broken spring can be dangerous. There is a high risk of injury when it comes to opening the door by hand or with your opener when the garage door spring has been damaged. As soon as you notice an issue, contact a garage door repair company like BH Garage Doors. Depending on the problems you are having and the specific system, the springs can be replaced, or the system can be upgraded.
Extension springs are attached to the track with a system of pulleys and cables that are attached to the bottom brackets of the garage door and are mounted on both sides of the door. If a spring in this system is broken, it can be dangerous. The springs can fly off, causing injury or damage. If your extension spring is broken, BH Garage Doors repair experts can upgrade your garage door to a safer torsion spring system or replace the spring. Reach out today if your springs are damaged.
Torsion springs are mounted above the garage door opening on a spring bar or torsion tube that has drums at either end. The cables are attached to the bottom bracket of the door. When you close and open the door the cables wrap or wind around the drum and provide movement.
How much does it cost to repair a broken spring?
The actual garage door repair springs aren’t particularly expensive parts, but the labor cost is a major factor when it comes to the overall cost of repairs. Below is more information about how much a garage door spring replacement can cost. For more information, reach out to BH Garage Doors Chicago.
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
Garage Door Spring Replacement Cost of Parts and Labor
It can be extremely difficult to replace garage door springs, and it should be done by an expert. You don’t want to risk further damaging your garage door or injury to yourself. Instead, you’ll want to hire a garage door repair company. There is no universal repair price chart, as all companies charge their own prices for labor. The local competition, location, difficulty of the job, and other factors will go into the labor costs of repairing the springs of your garage door. With that said, the labor and costs of materials may end up being around $150 to $350 for a single door. If you need to have multiple doors repaired, you may be able to get a discount on labor costs (although you are still going to pay more for the additional work). Reach out to BH Garage Doors to learn more about the costs of parts and services.

Some companies charge more than others. With that said, higher cost doesn’t necessarily mean higher quality work. If you want to make sure you aren’t overpaying, consider these tips:
- Buy the parts yourself
- Get a second opinion, but only if you have big doubts (consulting a second business will not be free)
- Only work with reputed companies that have a local, verifiable history of honest work
- Go online and check how much the competitors are charging for the same job
- Note if they are in a hurry to get started immediately
Is repair possible?
While your broken garage doors springs can be replaced, they cannot be repaired. With this in mind, it’s important to understand that a garage door spring not working properly doesn’t necessarily mean the spring itself is damaged.

While you may be able to replace your springs, if you don’t have the equipment and know-how, you should avoid trying to do it on your own. Instead, you’ll want to hire the experts at BH Garage Doors.

Instead of risking further damage and even injuring yourself, hire a professional team that can replace the springs with ease!

If you can’t, contact BH Garage Doors so we can send out an expert technician to repair the issue for you.
