There are three major types of garage door springs: torsion, extension, and Wayne Dalton torque master. The type of garage door spring installed on your garage door will determine its reliability and lifespan. 

Torsion Springs – Garage door torsion springs are a modern, reliable choice to upgrade the operation of your garage door. Installed horizontally above your garage door, they connect to a metal tube, twisting to lift and lower it. When you have a broken torsion spring, you’ll see a 2-4” gap between the coils and you may hear a loud popping noise when the garage door spring breaks. Also, your garage door won’t open at all, even if you attempt to lift it manually. 

Extension Springs – Unlike torsion springs installed above the garage door, extension springs operate on either side of your garage door by extending vertically as your garage door moves. Although they are an older spring system, extension springs remain a great option to operate a standard steel garage door. When you have a broken extension spring, you’ll see unusual elongation between the spring’s coils. Also, your garage door will come up at an angle or your garage door won’t open at all. 

Wayne Dalton Torque Master – Wayne Dalton torque master springs are a specialty garage door spring. Instead of being visibly installed alongside the garage door, Wayne Dalton torque master springs are inside a torsion tube. This means it can be difficult to tell when you have a broken torque master spring. But when you have this broken garage door spring, your garage door cables will be loose or broken. 


Garage door parts are based on operation cycles of opening and closing your garage door. Most garage door parts are rated for 10-15,000 cycles of operation. For garage door springs, this lifespan translates to 7-10 years of use. But how many years you’ll get out of your garage door spring will depend on how often you use your garage door and your regular maintenance routine.


Along with your garage door springs there a few garage door parts we recommend replacing while our Grease Monkey Garage Door technicians are at your home beginning the spring repair. because just as you learned about springs there is a life cycle to all door parts.

    This company is amazing! We had been having problems with the front doors to our facility for a few months and we finally called Grease Monkey Garage Doors to come and take a look. Not only were they there the next day, but they were able to diagnose and fix the problems on the spot. Their prices are very reasonable, and they didn’t try to upsell us on anything. Professional, quick, and friendly. They do much more than just doors, and with the way they conduct business, there is no doubt that we will be using them for many other things in the future!

    I cannot recommend Grease Monkey Garage Door enough! Don't waste your time calling other places. Just call Grease Monkey because they are amazing. My garage door stopped working around lunchtime and I couldn't get out of my garage. I did a quick Google search and called a few other places, but they did not answer their phones, so I tried Grease Monkey Garage Door. They immediately answered and had a technician come out within 2 hours. The technician was able to diagnose the problem (the spring broke after 20+ years) and proposed the solution (a new spring). He quoted me a price, which was very fair and then got to work. 30 minutes later (and before the sun went down), my garage door was up and running again! What a great company and service! Thank you!
