Common Spring Problems in Waterloo:
Why Do Garage Door Springs Break So Often?
Waterloo‘s cold, snowy winters put garage door springs through a lot of stress and wear and tear. The extreme temperature fluctuations between seasons cause the metal coils to expand and contract frequently, leading to fatigue and cracking. Road salt, ice accumulation and exposure to the elements also accelerates corrosion and rust build-up on the springs.
Garage Door Opener: Common Concerns in Ontario
Some of the common spring problems we see:
- Torsion springs: These heavy, tightly coiled springs mounted above the door crack and break from age and use. One broken spring puts more strain on the remaining springs, causing them to break as well.
- Extension springs: Stretched vertically along the sides of the door, these lighter springs rust and corrode from moisture exposure, leading to breakage and malfunction.
- Broken or loose cables and pulleys also contribute to spring failure as the system is thrown off balance.

Garage Door Company: How We Repair Broken Springs
Replacing broken garage door springs requires expertise, the proper tools and safety know-how. Here is how we complete spring repairs professionally with our garage door maintenance services in the Kitchener-Waterloo region:
- Job Site Evaluation: We thoroughly assess your garage door system to determine the exact specifications of the needed replacement springs.
- Preparation: We take all safety precautions like blocking and locking the door, so it does not accidentally lower during service.
- Spring Removal: Using winding bars, we slowly unwind and detach the broken torsion and extension springs from your door. Springs are decompressed in a controlled manner to avoid hazards.
- Installation: We replace worn springs with new torsion or extension springs made to OEM specifications for proper lifting capacity and door balance.
- Winding Bars & Calibration: The new springs are tightened incrementally to achieve the optimal lift force and counterbalance. Specialized winding bars allow fine-tuning of spring tension.
- Safety Check: Once installed, the travel and operation are tested multiple times to ensure smooth movement and weight balance. Safety features are confirmed functional.
- Lubrication & Maintenance: Moving parts are lubricated and adjusted to extend system lifespan.
You can have confidence in our expertise to get your garage door’s springs repaired and realigned properly for safe, reliable functioning again.
