The spring is perhaps the most undervalued part of a garage door initially but makes its value known very quickly. Low-cost doors tend to use extension springs. Make sure an internal safety containment cable is included in case of breakage. Springs tend to be the first part of the garage door to need service or replacement. Many springs are tested to operate between 5,000 to 10,000 cycles while some manufacturers make a spring that will last up to 30,000 cycles or more. That s a wide difference in longevity and value when you add it up. Most homeowners use their garage doors up to 3,000 times per-year so a 10,000-cycle spring could break within 3-4 years. Replacement usually costs $150 - $250. Check the manufacturer s warranty on the spring. Never buy a door with only a one-year warranty on the spring.
Some manufacturers tout the insulation value of garage doors. Most people question this concern since the garage in most homes is neither heated nor cooled. If insulation is a concern to you lightweight polystyrene foam insulation can be added to most doors. Insulated doors will help to reduce the amount of outside temperatures that enters your garage thus keeping it more comfortable for you. An insulated door is generally quieter and has a more attractive interior than an uninsulated door.
