How Much Garage Door Spring Cost?

The cost of garage door springs can vary greatly depending on the type of spring, its size, and where you buy it from.

A standard torsion spring for a garage door might cost anywhere from £50 to £100, while extension springs might be slightly cheaper, generally ranging from £20 to £50 each.

Keep in mind that these are rough estimates and prices may have changed. Moreover, if you’re not experienced in replacing garage door springs, it can be a dangerous task due to the high tension in the springs. It’s generally recommended to hire a professional for this job. The cost of professional installation will add to the overall expense but it ensures safety and proper installation.

How many years do garage door springs last?

The lifespan of a garage door spring can vary depending on the quality of the spring, how often the garage door is used, and how well it’s maintained. However, in general, garage door springs are usually designed to last for a certain number of cycles, with one cycle being the garage door going up and coming back down once.

A standard garage door spring might be rated for around 10,000 cycles. If you use your garage door four times a day (two openings and two closings), that equates to roughly seven years of use.

However, higher-quality springs are available that can last for 20,000 or even 100,000 cycles, which would significantly increase their lifespan.

Regular maintenance, including lubrication of the springs, can also help to extend their life. Always remember to have a professional perform any necessary repairs to garage door springs, as they can be dangerous due to the high amount of tension they hold.
