Replacement and Repair


2 Types of Garage Door Springs:
Torsion & Extension

Torsion springs are coiled around a bar and located directly above your garage door looking at the door from the insider. Extension spring systems run along the track on both sides. We come prepared to fix both types of systems in a single visit. We carry torsion and extension springs as a normal part of our inventory.


Best Practices

Best Practice #1 – Replace Both Springs

Most garage doors have 2 springs. When the first spring break, the second spring is soon to follow. That’s because the second spring is the same age, has cycled your door the same number of times and was made to last the exact same way. Repairing the second spring now will save you the service fee and inconvenience of having a broken garage door again very soon. Depending on how stretched out existing springs are it may also be important from a mechanical and safety perspective as well.

Best Practice #2 – Using The Right Size Springs

The right spring for your door matches the size and weight of your door. Each garage door has needs the right size spring to match. You can tell whether the right size spring was used by performing a simple balance test on your door. Only when the correct spring is used will the door balance.

Best Practice #3 – Safety

A safety inspection should be done any time the garage door system is repaired to ensure all the parts are in good working order. Your technician will always perform a complete safety inspection



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 a garage door springs?” It is hard to give an exact price because it depends upon the size of the door, weight, and type of garage door springs needed (torsion or extension). Lynchburg Garage Door has access to all size springs to accommodate different types of garage doors. We recommend that a professionally trained technician takes the proper measurements himself before giving you an exact price quote. He will not begin work until you approve the price.
