Noticed one side is broken, but common sense tells me I should have someone
replace both of them. System was installed in '92. Can anyone give me a
ballpark figure for what it will cost to replace the springs (and probably
the tension lines running from the bottom of each door side to the pulleys
at the top of the door frame?
Probably just replace the 2 springs. About $150- $200 depending on where
you live. There are some crooks out there. Watch out for full page yellow
pages ads shouting $30 for service call. They will say you need every hinge
replaced at a price that could get you a new door. Around me, Wayne Dalton
repairs all brands and guarantees for a year. I had them fix a gear on an
opener once. 6 months later a spring broke on the same door. They only
charged me for the spring.... free labor because they had fixed the opener
6 months earlier. Can't beat that.
The cost would depend upon the size of the replacement spring needed.
Typically, residential garage door torsion springs should not take more than
an hour to replace. Labor rates average about $45.00 an hour depending upon
the part of the country you are from and the door company that's called.
