Why do garage door springs break?

A: Tension and use. The springs that operate a garage door are wound tight whenever the door is closed. When the opener is engaged to raise the door, the tension is released as power to raise the door. Opening an average of 1,500 times a year and prolonged exposure to cold (or hot) temperatures can bring a stressed, cracked spring to its final demise.
