Broken Garage Door Spring Repair Near Whitewright, Tom Bean, and Sherman, TX

Garage door springs are an integral part of the inner workings of your overhead door system. If you have a residential or commercial garage door, springs are a necessary part that needs to be well maintained. They are in a labor-intensive role, supporting the weight of the garage door. Over time, garage door springs are exposed to extreme wear and tear, which can lead them to snap. If you have a broken garage door spring, it’s critical that you schedule garage door spring replacement as quickly as possible. You need a well-trained team you can trust, which you’ll find with Ellis and Parrish Overhead Doors. Our technicians are friendly, professional, and ready to take on your garage door spring replacement.

Why You Shouldn’t Delay Garage Door Spring Replacement

Safety: Safety is a big concern when dealing with garage door springs. Even when broken, springs are dangerous because of the tension they carry. If there is a broken garage door spring lying in your garage, it could be picked up by a child or stepped on by a pet. We recommend that you schedule garage door spring replacement as quickly as possible.

Damage: If you continue to use your overhead door with a broken spring, it will damage your garage door. Most likely, it will cause additional strain on the garage door opener, which may mean premature garage repairs.

Cost: The longer you delay spring replacement, the higher the cost will be. Additional repairs will add up, and if the garage door slams shut on anything, that adds to the damage and cost.

5 Signs You Need Garage Door Spring Repair

If you’re experiencing severe issues with your garage door, chances are that the springs are damaged or broken. Typically, the garage door won’t open, moves slowly, or slams shut when there’s a broken spring. It can be inconvenient when your garage door stops functioning, which is why we make your garage door spring replacement a priority. Keep an eye out for the following five signs that you need garage door spring repair:

Garage Door Moves Slowly or Partially

If your garage door has a broken spring, it becomes much harder for the opener to move the garage door. The door will likely move extremely slowly or only move a couple of inches. In this instance, a lot of strain is being placed on the opener, which leads to easy burnout. So if you’re experiencing these issues with your garage door, stop trying to open it and call us immediately. 

Gap Between Spring Coils

If you think that you may have a broken garage door spring, you can take a look at it. If there’s a 3-4 inch gap between the coils, it’s a good indication that it’s broken. The spring won’t be able to wind and unwind like usual, which creates gaps. 

Garage Door Slams Shut

Garage door springs are instrumental in creating equal balance in the garage door, so balance is thrown off when the springs are broken. This may cause the garage door to slam shut, which presents a major safety hazard. If you have a two-spring system with one that’s broken, it will cause one spring to take on the entire workload. This may lead your garage door to have jerky movements or slam shut.

Garage Door Moves Crookedly

When the opener is powering the door with a broken spring, it’s possible for the top section of the garage door to bend. This may mean that the garage door moves at an angle or comes off the track. If this happens, we recommend that you stop using your garage door and give us a call. 

Fallen or Loose Garage Door Cables

Springs work in conjunction with cables, which means damaged springs impact the cables. Cables will likely be subjected to extra stress, eventually becoming loose or falling off their drums. If you ever notice garage door parts lying on the ground, contact us immediately. 

Leave Broken Garage Door Spring Repair to the Professionals

Ellis and Parrish Overhead Doors is ready to handle your garage door spring replacement in Whitewright, Tom Bean, Sherman, and the surrounding areas. Make sure that you don’t tackle garage door spring repair yourself, as it could cause harsh injuries.

Garage door springs last 9-14 years with proper maintenance. 

You should never attempt to replace your garage door spring unless you are a trained professional. Garage door springs are heavy pieces of metal that are tightly wound together. When you release tension from your spring too fast or incorrectly, it can cause serious injuries to you or anyone around. If you need a garage door spring replacement, we highly recommend letting a professional garage door technician complete it. 

Yes, you should perform routine garage door maintenance on your garage door spring. This maintenance will include cleaning, tightening, and lubricating your garage door spring with garage door lube. 

  • Did an amazing job!!! Came out inspected my needs to make sure we got the right opener. Ordered it and came back and installed it perfectly. Having the new opener on my metal barn roll up door has made life easier and more convenient. Would definitely recommend and will use them again in the future.

  • I had a full garage door replacement completed at a rental property of mine. I obtained many different quotes from all over the metroplex. Ellis price was completive with most of the quotes I received but what made him stand out was ability to get the job done quickly. I called him on a Saturday and he answered and stated he could have it done Monday morning. He texted me at 8am that he began the job and by 10:30 am he was finished and even hauled the old door away. I highly recommend him and his company.
