  • Damaged, Loose, or Stetched Spring Coils – If you notice that the spring’s coils look damaged, loose, or rusted, you have a severely worn-out or even broken garage door spring. 
  • Unusual or Loud Noises from Your Garage Door – If you hear grinding or squeaking noises as your garage door operates, there is an issue with your garage door parts, possibly the spring. 
  • More Than 10 Years Since Your Last Spring Replacement – Garage door springs tend to last 8-12 years before needing replacement. If yours is nearing ten years with the need for frequent repairs, it may be time for garage door spring replacement.

Garage Door Spring Repair


Do you have questions about garage door springs? We have answers! View frequently asked questions below or contact us!

We see torsion springs last 15,000-20,000 cycles, and extension springs last 10,000 cycles. (A cycle is one opening and closing of your garage door). This usually means your springs will last 8-14 years, with torsion springs lasting 12-14 years and extension springs lasting 8-10 years. However, the lifespan depends on how often your garage door is used and if you keep up with maintenance. 

To extend the life of your garage door springs, you need to invest in regular maintenance. This means lubricating, balancing, and tightening your springs so they can operate at their best. Let a professional perform these maintenance tasks for your whole garage door system once a year. 

There are two major types of garage door springs: torsion and extension. Both work on a counterbalance system to maintain the weight of your garage door, but they operate in different ways. Torsion springs are installed above your garage door, stretching horizontally. They wind to close your garage door and unwind to open it. Extension springs are located on either side of your garage door, stretching vertically. They expand and contract to operate the overhead door. 

Look out for these signs that you need garage door spring repair near St. Augustine, FL:

  • 3-4” gap between the garage door spring’s coils.
  • Garage door opens halfway and stops. 
  • Garage door slams down suddenly when opening.
  • Garage door won’t open. 
  • Fallen or loose garage door cables. 
  • Garage door opens at an angle.

    I called Ancient City Garage Doors (ACGD) for an estimate after speaking to two other places who had similar answers but found myself most comfortable with ACGD. Hector came out and evaluated the problems, offered solution in a friendly no pressure kind of way at a price we felt was reasonable. They came back as promised and completed the work in a clean and timely manner. I recommend Ancient City Garage Doors highly... Henry Strickland 32084
