Which Garage Door System Do You Have? Torsion Springs vs. Extension Springs
The first thing you need to know when you have a broken spring is whether your system uses Torsion or Extension springs
Torsion springs can be found on the wall above your door. Extension spring systems are lined up next to your garage door track running parallel with an open door. It's important to know whether or not a garage door company provides service for your needs. Precision's fully stocks our trucks with both torsion and extension springs. So we will most often complete a garage spring repair in a single visit.

Precision Spring Repair Best Practices
Best Practice #1 - Fixing 2 Springs
Most garage doors have two springs, when one breaks, it's safe to say the second spring's is near the end of it's useful life. In order to save you from future inconvenience, and damaging your garage door opener, Precision will usually recommend replacing 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?
Best Practice #2 - Using The Right Springs
Garage doors come in all weights and sizes and springs are made for each. The technician needs to know the size/weight of the door to put the right size spring on your door.
How do you know whether the tech has used the right spring?
The Precision technician will perform a balance test after repairs on your door are complete.
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.
