Herndon Garage Door Spring Repair

About Garage Door Springs

At Door Doctor, we offer a premium selection of garage door springs for businesses and homes located in Herndon. Garage door springs play a critical role in how any overhead garage door operates, allowing it to open and close with ease. If, for example, the wrong garage door torsion springs are used, or if they’re damaged, your door can have trouble opening and closing.

Different types of garage doors require different spring sizes to ensure that the door is properly balanced. If the springs are the wrong size or if they’re not installed correctly, the door could malfunction and create issues for the entire garage door system. At Door Doctor, we take great care in making sure that the correct springs are installed properly on your garage door.  We install garage door springs of all sizes, so we can take care of your garage door repair needs without delay.

Two Types of Garage Door Springs

You should be aware of the different kinds of garage door springs. Your door system should be equipped with either: garage door torsion springs, or extension springs. Both of these springs come in various sizes designed to handle specific garage door weights.

  • Garage door torsion springs are installed directly above the garage door opening to provide smooth operation. This spring offers more control over the opening and closing of the door.
  • Garage Door extension springs run parallel to the track to help to raise and lower the door. The springs are extended when the door is down and contracted when the door is up, keeping the door firmly in place. Because your overhead garage door is usually in the down position, with the extension springs fully extended, they tend to stretch out over time. When this happens, the springs lose their tightly coiled shape and become less effective. For that reason, extension springs should be replaced regularly. Replacing overhead garage door springs is our specialty.

About Our Springs

At Door Doctor, when conducting garage door spring repairs for our Herndon customers, we use only the highest-quality springs to ensure that it performs the way it was designed. Our springs are made from high-grade steel and coated in a weather-resistant powder that helps to prevent corrosion and reduce friction. This unique design allows our garage door springs to last up to five times longer than springs you might find at other garage door companies. Where normal springs typically last for anywhere between 5,000 to 10,000 cycles—one cycle being a full opening and closing of the overhead garage door—our springs are tested to last between 25,000 to 50,000 cycles. So garage door springs installed by Door Doctor means that you won’t need to replace them as often.
