Replacing your garage door springs can be a real fuss for homeowners as it is a dangerous task that requires expertise and knowledge. As springs are constantly in high tension and the garage door is incredibly heavy, any accidental wrong steps can cause severe injury and physical harm. Therefore, unless your repair work is minor and won’t require many handy skills, we recommend hiring one to help you resolve any issues with your garage doors. In this article, we’ve estimated how it would cost to perform these replacements and what you should expect.
Replacing Your Garage Door Springs
When the springs in your garage door are damaged, you are unlikely to repair them as they will need to be replaced. Unfortunately, many homeowners will not realize this until both are malfunctioning in most cases. Therefore, it is important to inspect your garage door’s hardware occasionally.
If you have a multi-door garage alongside other component replacements, you can expect the cost to go up to $500. On average, a garage door spring repair price ranges from $150 to $350 per door, inclusive of the hardware and labor per door.
However, if your damage is less severe and you will only need to lubricate the springs, the cost will lower, usually costing up to $100. The hardware costs between $30 to $200 (depending on the severity). The labor will take up most of the price, ranging between $75 to $150.
Replacing Your Torsion Spring and Bar
In the case of replacing your torsion springs, this can range between $130 to $300 for a set of two torsion springs, inclusive of labor and hardware materials. On average, the springs by themselves can cost up to $100 each. As they are located on the top of the door, you should replace both springs simultaneously to maintain balance and stability. Usually, they have a lifespan of more than a decade, ranging from 10,000 to 20,000 cycles. However, this will also heavily depend on the extent of the use.
Replacing Extension Spring
The hardware materials by themselves can cost up to $45 each, and with labor, they can cost about $50 to $100 for replacement. Compared to the torsion springs, they are technically much easier to install and cost less. However, it is worth noting that they have a shorter timespan and can last less than a decade. Fortunately, most of them come with a warranty of 3 to 5 years.
