Your garage door springs are crucial components that play a vital role in the smooth operation of your garage door. Whether you need routine maintenance or an emergency replacement, our expert technicians are here to ensure your garage door springs are in top condition. Discover how our comprehensive services can enhance the safety, performance, and longevity of your garage door system.

Garage door springs counterbalance the door’s weight, making it easy to open and close. There are two main types of garage door springs: torsion springs and extension springs.

  • Torsion Springs: These are mounted above the door and twisted to provide lifting power.
  • Extension Springs: These are located on either side of the door and stretch to provide the necessary tension.

Both types of springs are under high tension, which makes them prone to wear and tear. Regular maintenance and timely replacement are essential to prevent accidents. This ensures smooth operation and extends the life of your garage door system.

We recommend having your garage door springs inspected and maintained at least once a year. Regular maintenance helps identify and address minor issues before they become significant problems. This ensures your garage door operates smoothly and safely. If you use your garage door frequently, you might need more frequent maintenance to keep the springs in optimal condition.

While basic maintenance tasks like lubricating moving parts can be done by homeowners, we strongly advise against attempting to inspect, repair, or replace garage door springs on your own. Garage door springs are under high tension and can cause serious injury if not handled properly. Hiring a professional ensures that the job is done safely and correctly, preventing accidents and further damage to your garage door system.
