Broken garage door springs are one of the most common repairs that all garage door repair companies encounter. Most people are under the impression that the garage door opener is the component that opens and closes the garage door, however, it is actually the springs that do the heavy lifting. Consider this, the typical garage door can weigh between 300 and 1000 lbs. In addition, the average American garage door opens and shuts 1500 times a year. Because of that, springs will wear out over time and will eventually need to be replaced.
While most spring manufacturers make springs with a life cycle of 10,000, we at Arizona Garage Door & Repair, offer springs rated as high-cycle springs. These springs calculate out to between 25,000 and 65,000 depending on which wire size and length your door needs. We are stocked with many different size springs to ensure we have the right one on-hand when your spring needs replacing.
