Garage Door Spring Repair

Why Garage Door Springs Fail

The torsion springs on your garage door are designed to make it seem very light and easy to operate. However, they don’t last forever. Most garage doors installed by builders are designed for about 10,000 cycles. That means they are designed to open and close your door about 10,000 times (That’s about 10 years if you open and close your door 3 times a day, most people use their door more often than that).

There are a couple more reasons why springs can break. If they are the wrong size for the doors they can break early because they are being overstressed. Also quick changes in temperature seem to cause the springs to break. We have noticed that if it is a warm Texas day and a cold front comes through, we seem to get a lot of spring calls. We believe because of the thermal shock to the metal. This may not be 100% accurate but we have experienced anecdotal evidence in our 17 years of operation. In all cases, eventually metal fatigue will cause the springs to break. To learn more about springs go here.

What happens when your garage door won’t open

We are experts at Overhead Garage Door Spring repair, we repair thousands every year.

Door Won't Open

When the garage door springs eventually break, they no longer support the weight and the door becomes very hard to open. Since a typical garage door weighs more than 150 lbs, this means you will not be able to open and close the garage door until the springs are replaced.


This is one of the most common problems we face, so our technicians can quickly and easily recognize the correct springs required for your door have your garage door running again in no time!


Our technicians carry the most common Overhead door springs on their truck everyday so usually we can fix it on the first trip. Also, because we also do commercial doors and have to be able to make springs for almost any size doors we stock bulk spring and can make springs for most doors same day or within hours.

Same Day Repair

This includes custom wood covered doors as well as full view steel doors. We measure and weigh your door to make sure that the right spring is put on your door. If you want a spring designed to give you more cycles we can custom make a spring that will last that long, same day.

Why have Cedar Park Overhead Doors fix your springs?


• Three year parts and Labor warranty on all of our spring repairs to the original homeowner.

• Lifetime warranty on all of our spring repairs. This means that as long as you own the house we will replace the spring for free. If it breaks after three years, we will charge the labor fee for a single spring.

Extended Life Springs - There are times when a customer need springs that will last an extended period of time. Examples of this are when the springs are located in a difficult to access location or extremely critical openings. If you feel your door requires this, let your technician know and they will measure the door and calculate the correct springs for the life cycle you need. We will then custom build the springs to your requirements. This will add to the cost of the spring and labor. You will approve the estimate before we do the work.

(Note: We do not sell 1 year springs and lifetime springs, they are all the same. The right spring for the size and weight of the door. If we put up a spring on your door and you do not want the Lifetime warranty, tell the technician and he will take $50.00 off the cost of the springs and give you a 1 year warranty on parts and labor. Same springs.)

Costs for the repair
Costs for the repair

Spring Repair jobs do not cost $1000!! We are seeing a lot of estimates and invoices from other Garage Door companies for spring repairs at $1000 or more. We think that is too much. Our springs repairs for a typical steel garage door are usually $500 or less and that includes a Lifetime warranty on the springs. When you call the biggest advertiser on the internet and they show up in one hour with a shiny faced smiling technician and he quotes you $1000 for a standard spring repair then you need to call us. Do not waste time letting him call the home office to get the "special manager discount price" down to where it belongs. We will give you the real price first. Yes, you may be wealthy but you do not have to throw it away.

Don't go too small - We charge a fair price for our spring replacements and we stand by our warranty policy. We have been doing this for 19 years and it has been good for us and our customers.

We put in quality products and we will be around for many more years to come. The “One Truck Chuck” you might use with a 90 day or one year warranty that is $10 dollars cheaper may not be around in 2 years. He might get injured, he might have his parole revoked, he might have a relapse, or he might have to move to another town.

We do not have a “Service Call fee” or an “operator charge” or whatever they call it in other companies. That’s the price you pay just to have them show up. When you call Cedar Park Overhead Doors, we go and look at your door at no cost to you. We will give you a quote to fix the door. If you don’t like the number, we will give you an estimate and drive away at no cost to you.

If you paid another company to come out and they charged you a “show up fee”, do not be trapped by the $49.00 you paid to have them come out. Get their estimate and send them away. We can be there the same day, do the job for less, and we will give you back your $49.00. We both win. A garage door spring job on a standard 16' Wide x 7' high door basic should cost less than $500.00 depending on the door and the springs including a LifeTime warranty.
