Torsion Springs vs. Extension Springs

The first step in terms of getting your garage door springs repaired or replaced is knowing what kind of spring system you have. There are two main spring systems: Torsion Springs and Extension Springs.

Torsion springs are located above the opening of your door with springs slid onto a bar. Extension spring systems can be found alongside the opening of the door. It’s important to know whether or not a garage door company provides service for your needs. Precision’s professionally trained technicians are fully equipped to install top quality garage door torsion springs and extension spring systems.

Precision Spring Repair Best Practices

Every homeowner can relate to how life’s inconveniences are thrown at you at the worst possible times. Broken springs can be unpredictable and have several causes, including corrosion, damaged or worn cables, and more. The last thing you want to happen is to have your car stuck in the garage when you need it most, especially when it’s only been a couple of months, weeks, or even days after your last garage door repair!

That being said, it’s important to keep in mind that garage door spring replacement is very dangerous and should be completed only by trained professionals. That’s why Precision leads by example and follows the industry’s best practices in order to make the best recommendation to homeowners each time we step foot in a garage.

Best Practice #1 – Replacing Both Springs

Most garage doors have two springs installed at the same time, when one breaks it’s safe to say the second spring’s life expectancy has just about expired. In order to save you from future inconvenience, unsafe garage door practices, and damaging your garage door opener, Precision will usually recommend to replace both springs. If you’ve had the same tires on your car for a while and one blows out while you’re driving, wouldn’t you replace them both? It’s extremely important to properly maintain equipment such as garage doors and automobiles.

Best Practice #2 – Using The Right Springs

Since garage doors come in all weights and sizes, the right springs need to be installed in order to properly balance the door. If a technician puts the wrong spring on your door, not only will this damage your garage door system, but it will cause the garage door opener to do more work than it was built to do. This is why Precision technicians only install the right springs for the door’s weight and check their work by performing a balance test.

Best Practice #3 – Safety Inspection

With every spring repair, Precision provides a free safety inspection to make sure all the hardware and moving parts on your door are in good working condition and meet safety standards. Since the hardware was probably installed at the same as the springs, it’s possible there are worn mechanical parts on your door that are in an unsafe state. Think about spring failure as a symptom to a possibly larger problem with your door. This is why it’s a Precision Best Practice to provide a free safety inspection and maintain a safe environment for our customers.

Why Precision’s Spring Repair Transcends The Competition

Springs You Can Trust, Again, and Again (and Again!)

Just like car tires are rated by miles, garage door springs are rated by an estimated number of cycles (1 cycle = your garage door going up AND down one time). The springs used by our competition range anywhere from 5,000-10,000 cycles, whereas we use a high-grade steel spring rated for 25,000-50,000 cycles!

Tell Me More About The Warranty

All of our springs come with a one-year warranty that covers parts and replacement. If your spring is replaced as part of an overhaul, then it’s covered under our Precision Limited Lifetime Warranty. Just need a spring replaced but interested in a longer warranty? Give us a call – we offer springs that come with a lifetime warranty, too!

How Much Does Spring Repair Cost?

The most common question we get over the phone is, “Okay, so how much does it cost to replace garage door springs?” To give you an exact price quote, we would need to know the size of the door, weight, and type of garage door springs needed (torsion or extension). Since we carry over 30 different types of springs to account for all the different types of garage doors, we recommend that a professionally trained technician takes the proper measurements himself before giving you an exact price quote.
