Garage Door Springs and Weight Chart

Broken garage door springs are the 2nd most common garage door repair. If a spring breaks, your operator won’t work, so your door won’t open properly. To get your door working again, we need to replace the broken torsion springs. And to do that, we need to match the torsion spring size & qty to the weight of your garage door. When replacing torsion springs, we make sure to use the right size so your door will work for years. Please keep reading to see our garage door springs and weight charts for standard garage door sizes.

Residential torsion spring guidelines

  • Most one-car doors 10′ wide and smaller can use one spring.
  • Two-car 10’3″ and wider use two springs unless shaft limitations require one.
  • 2″ diameter springs are always preferred.
  • If one spring cannot be a 2″ diameter, go to two 2″ springs before going to one 2-5/8″ spring.
  • If two springs can’t be 2″ in diameter, go to 2 2-5/8″ before going to four 2″ springs.
