Garage Door Springs Replacement

The springs do all the heavy lifting and keep the door balanced and level when being raised or lowered. With that said, it is important springs are properly installed and the correct springs are used for your garage doors’ weight and size.

You can easily get a good idea of how long your garage door springs will last based on your doors' use.
