Two Spring Replacement
Many garage doors have 2 springs. When a spring breaks it is a very good indication that the second spring is soon to follow, with it many times being the same age and has opened the door the same number of times it was manufactured to the same cycle-rating. Repairing the 2nd spring now will save you the time and service fee of fixing your door again in only a short while. It is also important from a mechanical and safety perspective as well.
Using The Right Size Springs
There are different size garage door springs. The correct spring matches the size and weight of your door, but only when the correct spring is used will the door balance. It is very important that your door be in balance for safety and for the life of the your garage door system. Especially, your garage door opener.
All doors undergo a complete balance test after installment.
With every spring repair, Samson Garage Doors provides a free safety inspection to make sure all the hardware and moving parts on your door are in good working condition and meet safety standards.

It is a Samson Garage Doors practice to provide a free safety inspection and maintain a safe environment for our customers.
