Garage door spring Calgary lifespan
Your typical garage door torsion spring will last 10,000 to 15,000 cycles. A cycle is one opening and closing of your garage door. As we typically install springs together, we recommend replacing both when one reaches the end of its cycle life. The reasoning behind this is that the second spring should follow shortly. Not to mention, having springs in different conditions accelerates the wear and tear of the newer spring.
