Winter in Indiana is known for a season of broken garage door springs.

Each garage door spring is engineered for about 10000 cycles. We use our garage door at least twice a day (2 cycles), in reality this number is closer to 4 cycles.

If you do quick math assuming 4 cycles per day, you will get the number of years that spring should last, which is about 7 years. Add freezing temperatures into the mix and realistic life expectation of a spring drops to about 5 years if not less.

Bottom line:

if your garage door spring is about 5 years old, don’t wait for it to break, replace proactively to avoid unpleasant surprises.
