Garage Door Spring Repair

Repairing or replacing your garage door springs is a very complicated process that only professionals should perform. The loaded tension stored in torsion springs could cause damage to your property, or even worse, bodily injury. Keep yourself out of the hospital by calling Arlington Heights Garage Doors to service your garage door springs.

Did you know that your garage door springs counterbalance the weight of the door? Or that they expel mechanical energy when they’re twisted in the opposite direction? Arlington Heights Garage Doors knows all the ins and outs of garage door spring repair and replacement. When your garage door springs need to be serviced, our licensed, bonded, and insured technicians will follow these steps:

  • Safety First!

Our professional experts will unplug the opener and put on gloves and safety goggles before beginning work on your garage door springs.

  • Laying Out Tools

We use only the latest equipment when dealing with garage door repairs, including two 10” vice grips, two ½” x 18” winding bars, an adjustable wrench, sockets, a socket wrench, a ruler, and a file.

  • Unwinding Springs

The garage door springs will be unwound with a properly fitting winding bar.

  • Loosening Hardware

All torsion and spring hardware will need to be loosened and removed in order to extract the garage door springs.

  • Measuring Old Springs

Once the old springs are freed, our experts will measure them to ensure the new ones are the same length.

  • Installing New Springs

The new springs will be slid on after the drum has been moved away from the plate and the shaft is pulled out.

  • Final Spring Repair Steps

All hardware is re-installed, the new springs are wound, the door is lubricated, and the opener is reattached! We will make sure to press the opener multiple times.
