How Much Does a Garage Door Spring Cost?
The cost to replace a broken garage door spring vary based on the size of the door. To get a cost estimate, we recommend contacting our office to schedule a time for a technician to come out and determine the size of the spring, and if there are other circumstances that need to be considered.
In the case of this aluminum door pictured above, we identified that not only did the spring need replacing, the hinges were worn down, and rollers were worn out. We added a center bering to the door for additional support, allowing the weight to be evenly distributed throughout the door. New rollers helps to prevent loud squeaking, and the new cables and spring eliminated the door from slamming shut each time it closed. The result:
The entire job took us about 30 minutes to do quite a bit of work for the customer, and left them with a garage door that looked and felt brand new, and added a good 10 years to the lifespan of a garage door that is 23 years old.
What to Consider
One of the things to consider is if you have 2 springs and an opener, you might want to consider replacing it at the same time as it likely is getting older as well and needs to be replaced. If the door has a lot of problems with weight issues, the motor can burn out quickly, which can leave your car stranded in the garage.
