Garage Door Springs Common Industry Repair Practices
Door Springs - Heavy Side
Say, for the sake of argument your door weight is 180 lbs and Company A replaces your broken springs engineered to lift a 150 lb door. In this case, the door would be 30lbs out of balance or 30 lbs too heavy. To compensate, the service person would add more winds onto the garage door springs, and no one’s the wiser. This adjustment drastically reduces the life of the spring and can damage your door and door opener beyond repair.
Door Springs - Light Side
But what if company A replaces your garage door springs engineered to lift 210 lbs. Again the door is 30 lbs out of balance and is too light. To compensate, the service person would reduce winds onto the spring, and no one’s the wiser. By removing winds off the springs it may keep the door closed, but now there are not enough winds on the springs to keep enough cable tension on the spools up above. A light garage door is the most dangerous of improper balancing. You would not want the door to shoot up into the open position when the red rope was yanked. Doors that are too light can be dangerous to use.
Keep in mind. Once the service person installs your new garage springs, they would reinstall your garage door opener back up. Hiding any underlying issues.
A light garage door is the most dangerous of improper balancing. You would not want the door to shoot up into the open position when the red rope was yanked.
We come across several homes every day with unbalanced garage doors. Although there are several reasons for this, the most common reason is our competition may only stock 6 – 8 sizes of garage springs due to cost, storage and convenience.
Frequently Asked Questions
A neighbor of mine paid over $400 for a set of springs, are your prices that high?
We buy in bulk to get the best possible pricing. There are many companies that have their service technicians work on sales and repair commission. Therefore, the more they sell the higher the commission. 5 Star Doors service technicians are hourly employees and are not paid on commission.
What if I don’t know the springs are broken, the door just won’t open?
When the 5 Star Doors service technician arrives he will diagnose the problem, provide you a free written estimate to fix and repair your garage door issue.
Other Companies charge more for 2 springs, Why so much price difference?
We buy in bulk to serve the thousands of rental properties we are under contract with, and avoid high cost advertising. Our stock garage door springs are from Service Spring Corporation and made in the USA.

Our technicians weigh your door using a scale to properly balance your door. If you have an odd weight we can install the correct springs that will work for the garage door.
