If you use your garage door springs sparingly, they should last an average of between 7 and 9 years. Keep in mind that this is if you are using your garage on an average of 4 times per day. If you use your garage more often, you may find a diminished lifespan of 4-6 years. If you use your garage less frequently, you may be able to get longer use out of them.
Of course, aside from usage, there are other things that can also affect the longevity of your springs. Homeowners who live in wet climates and are accustomed to moisture may have to replace their springs more often, as moisture commonly leads to the build-up of rust. Once rust starts to build, the friction on the springs is increased, and the wear and tear happens more quickly.
Torsion springs are typically found mounted in the shaft above your garage door and help to keep the door properly balanced. When using the garage door, whether it be raised or at a middle height position, these are the springs that are used to keep it in place. If you are finding that your garage door doesn’t stay in place, it’s probably time for some new torsion springs.
Extension springs can be found either mounted above the door or on the sides. When you open or close your garage door, extension springs will either expand or contract. If there are any gaps between your coils, your springs could be starting to fail.

Sometimes springs don’t need to be replaced, they just need to be adjusted. When properly adjusted, springs will allow for easy, smooth movement of your door. But when not properly adjusted, the door may not work properly.
If you have torsion springs and your door is difficult to open or closes too quickly, you want to increase the tension. If the door will not close all the way, is difficult to close, or opens too quickly, you want to decrease the tension.
Just as you would take your vehicle in for an oil change, it’s also important that you perform routine maintenance on your garage door. Here are a few maintenance tasks that you should perform seasonally to ensure that your garage door springs, and your garage door, operates at it’s best:

It really comes down to a) functioning and b) safety. If your garage door springs are not functioning properly, either is your door. And if your door isn’t functioning properly, you could be putting your safety at risk. Why?
Garage door springs are wound very tightly. In other words, they are under a great deal of tension. When they break, the result can be injury, either from the spring itself, or from the malfunctioning of the door.
Don’t put yourself at risk – professionals are just a quick call away.
Not all garage door issues require a professional. Just like a headache doesn’t mean a brain tumor, a squeaky garage door doesn’t necessarily mean a broken garage door. If your garage door is giving you problems, a little lubrication may be all it takes to make a big difference. If lubricant doesn’t help – then it may be time to call the professionals.
