Does your garage door stop when it is going up? Did you hear a loud bang, similar to a gun shot? If so, you might just have a broken garage door spring.
Kaiser Garage Doors and Gates’ experts can quickly determine whether or not springs are the cause of your garage door repair needs. Properly installed, quality springs will ensure your door opens and closes efficiently. They are beneficial to a safely working and secure garage door. We use high-quality, heavy-duty torsion springs for all our garage door repairs.
What do you do if your garage door springs break?
More often than not, springs break after the door has closed. In more dangerous instances, a spring can suddenly snap as the door is coming down, causing it to drop quickly. Your garage door is heavy and can be hazardous if not handled correctly. In these cases, call Kaiser Garage Doors and Gates as soon as possible and keep a safe distance until your door is repaired.
How can you know what kind of garage door torsion springs you’ll need?
The type of springs you need depend on the type of garage door you have – details like the size and weight of your door would play a factor. Our certified technicians can easily determine which springs are best for your garage door and will install them so your door is working again.
Broken Torsion Springs
Torsion springs are located above the garage door and they are what lift the actual weight of the garage door. Most doors weigh between 150 to 250 pounds and without working springs, the garage door opener cannot lift the door. Attempting to use a garage door opener to lift a garage door with a broken spring can cause numerous parts on the opener to break.
Broken Extension Springs
Extension springs are used in a different type of door lift design that are used perpendicular to the door. They are attached to the bracket that holds the horizontal track to the ceiling. They extend as the door goes down and with one broken the door cannot work properly.

Kaiser did a very good job and price was cheaper than the other companies I called. The installer knew what he was doing and explained to me how many cycles each spring takes before it goes out again.
I called your Tucson, Arizona, store on 4-13-16 and spoke with Tony about a broken spring on our 2-car garage door. He was immediately very helpful, taking down the information and scheduling us for an appointment with a serviceman for 4-15-16. He was also good enough to provide me with the charge for the service call and the replacement spring without my having to ask for it, which was good because I’d not been thinking about cost, I was focused on getting the thing fixed as quickly as possible.
I would definitely recommend Kaiser Garage Doors & Gates to anyone who might ask me if I know of a reputable business that can assist them with garage door issues.
After shopping other local garage door companies, I decided to use Kaiser Garage Doors & Gates because they were very honest and inexpensive. The girl (Vanessa) told me their spring cost was always $65 per spring regardless of the height and weight of the door vs the competitors which told me "anywhere from $100-$260". The tech showed up at my assigned time and was out of there in less than 45minutes! I would highly recommend this company to anyone not looking to get ripped off.
