Garage Door Spring Replacement is Our Specialty

All overhead garage doors are lifted by some sort of spring, which “balances” the weight of your door.  When it breaks, your garage door won’t open — it becomes dead weight.   I estimate that I have replaced at least 10,000 springs over the last decade and a half.

Broken garage door springs are the most common problem we see. Nine times out of ten it is a “torsion spring” (or something similar like the TorqueMaster). Most last 10,000 “cycles”(once up and down). We carry 20,000+ cycle garage door torsion springs, with an unconditional five year guarantee. 

It is specific to the weight of the door.

An “out of balance” garage door is one that has the wrong strength spring(s) on it — causing it to fall hard to the floor, or to fly open on its own. This is a leading cause of damage to garage door openers and top door sections, and it is 100% preventable.  Adding extra tension to a spring that is not strong enough will also lead to it breaking much sooner.

We never leave a door with the wrong springs on it!

If you are interested, here is a video that gives a great explanation of how the garage door spring makes a heavy door (most are at least 150 lbs.) feel so light that it can easily be lifted and closed with one hand.  When properly balanced, even a massive 750lb door is a breeze to open manually.

Ideally, any non-standard torsion spring system (such as TorqueMaster, Clopay EZ-Set, and extension spring systems) should be converted to standard torsion when it fails.  Installed properly, this will provide a much longer lasting, more reliable, and smoother operating garage door system.
