Garage Door Springs
About Garage Door Springs
The spring(s) on your garage door do all of the heavy lifting when opening your door, so it is important to make sure they are in good working order. If you noticed your door becoming increasingly heavy to lift, then it is time to think about replacing the springs before they break! We provide counterbalance springs for all overhead garage doors, made to the highest quality for the longest lifespan.
Garage door springs come in all different shapes and sizes. If you don't know exactly which spring you need to repair your garage door, take as much information from the door and the spring itself: the height and width of the door itself, including the material it is made from, and the length, outside diameter and number of coils of the existing spring. With this information, a replacement spring can be sourced.
If a spring does break on your garage door, you should always replace the broken spring rather than trying to repair it. Once the metal has snapped it will be weakened and won't be repairable. We also always advise that springs that operate in pairs are replaced at the same time. This is to ensure the door remains balanced and will prolong the lifespan of your new springs. We always recommend coating new springs with a thin layer of mineral oil after installation to help prolong their lifespan. Oil should be reapplied on a regular basis to help prevent corrosion. Grease or heavier oils are not recommended as this attracts airborne debris which can interfere with the operation of the spring.
If you need to replace your garage door springs, rest assured you've arrived at the right place.
