Spring Repair & Installation

Types of Garage Door Springs

You’re garage door likely has torsion or extension springs. Torsion springs are mounted to a metal rod that runs parallel to the door, directly above the door opening. Extension springs are long, light-weight, and run perpendicular to the door, above the horizontal portions of the door tracks.

Failing Springs

As garage door springs age they lose their resiliency causing doors to feel heavier without their support. This “extra” weight will also cause strain on electric door openers as they attempt to lift the door.

In addition to causing the door opener to work harder (this may be audibly noticeable) worn springs can break suddenly and cause the door to slam shut. Garage door springs cannot be repaired but they can be replaced.

With new springs, your garage doors should require relatively little force to lift into an open position.

Safety Warning

DO NOT disconnect the opener from the door if the springs break while the door is open. If the door is not connected to the opener, it may come crashing down under its full weight. AVOID leaving the door open to prevent someone from unknowingly attempting to shut the unsupported door.

The technician arrived right on schedule. Very professional and engaging. Both openers needed replacing. He had both of them removed and new units installed and had the travel distance settings completed in a little over and hour. I was very impressed. We reprogrammed the codes, I paid him and off he went to his soon to be satisfied customer. I now have two working garage door openers.Thanks Heritage! Jim

Great prices and service. Greg is very communicative and helpful. My garage door looks great. Would definitely recommend. I thought I would be out of their service territory, but to my surprise the company was still able to accommodate what I wanted to buy and have installed. Thank you to the whole Heritage team

I have had the opportunity to have had the services of Heritage Garage Door from my purchase of my automatic door many years ago. In the meantime I have had maintenance done as well. This past January when my door wouldn’t open I called to leave a message on a Sunday and received an answer back!! They repaired the issue in a timely manner and brought to my attention that the “battery” was in end stages. I had them replace it and when the power went out last month i was happy I had been notified as I was able to open the door during the outage. I have referred other people to them because of my satisfaction.
