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 certified technicians are fully equipped to work on torsion 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. The last thing you want to happen is to having your car stuck in the garage when you need it most, especially when it's only been a couple months, weeks, or even days after your last garage door repair! 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 set 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 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? 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 time 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 of 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
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 1 time). Much of our competition uses standard springs, which are cheaper but break quickly. We, on the other hand, provide both standard and high-cycle springs. In general, we recommend high-cycle springs for their overall toughness. While the standard variety typically fails after 3-5 years, high-cycle springs can last up to 10x that duration! This is why we can offer you an outstanding warranty!
Tell Me More About The Warranty
When a company tells you they're only providing you a 1-3 year warranty, it means they're likely using cheap hardware. Since the hardware we use is superior to a traditional garage door company's, we can provide up to a 5 year warranty!

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 certified technician take the proper measurements himself before giving you an exact price quote.
