Broken garage door springs are a common occurrence. They simply wear out and break from metal fatigue. The most common symptom of a broken garage door spring is that when you activate the garage door opener to open the door it either doesn’t open at all or goes up slightly and stops.
Some makes and models of garage door openers can open the door even if the spring is completely broken, however you may notice the unit is moving slower than normal and seems to be struggling.
Springs act as the counterbalance to offset the weight of the garage door, without them you couldn’t lift the door.
Torsion springs generate energy by being wound around a shaft rather than stretching to provide lift of the door. This can be a very dangerous repair for an untrained person.

"Woke up Saturday morning and was just leaving home to run errands. Went to open my garage door but door wouldn't open. I found that one of the door springs was broken. Checked Angie's List for Garage Door Repair in my area - found Door Works. Highly rated so I gave them a call.
Spoke with Jay - explained the situation - he said he could get someone out to fix the spring within an hour or so. Repair guy showed up about an hour and a half later. Very professional - worked quickly and replaced both springs. Am VERY impressed that I was able to get it repaired so quickly on a Saturday and was able to get on with my day. Will be using them in the future for all of my garage door needs!"
