All garage doors are equipped with either extension springs which are located on either side of the track and used on lighter garage doors, or torsion springs which are one or two coil springs along the wall above the door opening for heavier garage doors. Garage door springs have a limited life span that is measured in cycles. A “cycle” is when your door goes up and down one time. Most residential garage doors are equipped from the manufacturer with 10,000 cycle springs. This means if you use your garage door 4 times a day, every day of the year your springs have an estimated life span of approximately 6.84 years.

Once your garage door springs have worn out, the coiled wire will break which instantly releases the tension, causing a loud bang that can actually echo through the house.
