If you’re having problems opening your garage door in Colorado, the torsion springs could very well be the culprit. There is no way for your garage door to function if there is something wrong with the springs. This maintenance issue is also one that you want to address quickly because broken garage doors can be a huge inconvenience as well as a safety hazard.
There are a lot of reasons you may need garage door spring repair. However, one of the leading causes is old and corroded springs. Rusty and cracked springs need replacing. Your springs may also need replacing because of impact damage or breakage from an imbalanced garage door.
How Much Does Spring Replacement Cost?
If you have a feeling you have a broken garage door spring, you might be wondering how much fixing it will cost you. If you get a professional to complete the task (which is the recommendation if you have no experience installing mechanisms under pressure), it will cost anywhere from $180-$350. It may be on the higher end of the cost spectrum if the maintenance person has to take out the brackets to reach the springs.
The replacement procedure takes a short amount of time to complete. It’s essential to hire a professional for this process because they not only know how to replace the springs best, they also know how to do things like check if your garage door is balanced correctly and if other mechanism components need repair.
