A typical garage door weighs anywhere between 150-200 pounds. This massive amount of weight causes the garage door springs to stretch, crack and break over time.

Garage Door Springs Introduction

Every garage door spring is designed to counterbalance the weight of the door. This counterbalance allows you to open a garage door weighing several hundred pounds with just one hand. As technology has evolved, so have the spring systems your door uses.

Garage door springs are critical components that bear the weight of the door. When they wear out or break, it can lead to safety hazards and operational issues. At D&L Garage Doors, we specialize in spring replacements. Replacing garage door springs requires precision and safety precautions. Our technicians are experts in spring replacement techniques, ensuring the correct type and tension of springs are used to balance your door perfectly.

Garage Door Torsion Springs

Torsion springs are the most reliable and safest spring system to have in your home, but be forewarned. Any garage door springs are under an immense amount of stress which can cause significant bodily harm unless handled by an experienced technician.

Instead of pulling against the weight of the door on hooks, torsion springs are designed to twist open and closed, similar to the spring you find in a clothes pin. This twisting design allows for a longer lifespan of the mechanism. Positioned around a guiding bar this spring system is designed to prevent any loose parts, even when a break occurs! Torsion springs can also be used interchangeably with any door meaning we can complete your repairs in one trip. These springs are the industry’s standard and D&L Garage Doors are experts when it comes to spring repair & replacement services.

Garage Door Extension Springs

On older doors you will typically find an extension or tension spring. This is a type of spring that most people picture when they think of a spring, a thick piece of coiled wire with hooks on each end that pull against the weight of the door. This spring has several flaws, though. The hooks, which are under pressure, are known weak points that will bend and eventually break. The springs are also designed to be used with only one specific type of door. This means that repairing an extension spring will often require multiple trips. More importantly though, extension springs are only secured by the two attachments at each end meaning when your spring breaks, the two broken pieces can shoot in any direction. Because of the extreme stress your garage door springs are under this is extremely unsafe. When possible we recommend converting these springs to a safer, more reliable torsion spring system.

Wayne Dalton TorqueMaster Spring System

Though rare, some doors do utilize a TorqueMaster spring. Featuring thinner springs that sits inside of a tube, this spring system was designed for use by a certain manufacturer to be used with there doors. Originally planned to be an improvement over the torsion spring system, these springs had several of their own design flaws , including premature failure and a labor intensive installation which would add to their cost. These springs have been discontinued by the manufacturer , who now uses torsion springs for their doors. Due to this manufacturer’s position, we are converting all TorqueMaster spring systems to the industry standard torsion spring system

5 star garage door repair service in boise idaho

It’s never a good day when a garage door goes kaput. After my multiple repairs were clearly not working, we called D&L. Prompt service and a really quick appointment to come out and look at the mess. We ordered a new garage door, and expected to receive it in mid-October. Working in a production field, I fully expected delays, as they are numerous. How tickled is my family that they just installed a beautiful garage door today! At LEAST three weeks EARLIER than I expected!! Wow!! Pleasant, professional, and accommodated a working household’s schedule! I never again have to wonder about anything garage door related! Thanks!

D&L responded to our service call the same afternoon we placed the call to their service desk. When it was determined we needed a new spring and door, they coordinated the install for us and arrived when they said they would. They didn’t try and up sell us a new opener because we didn’t need it.

Installed quickly and everything is working smoothly. We would definitely recommend them to anyone who asks.
