Garage door spring repairs Johannesburg North

We first come out to weigh the garage door after the garage door spring snapped, this is a very important step in changing your garage door spring as they are weight oriented and if not weighed correctly your garage door will not work properly, be noisy and will damage the garage door opener after time. Garage door spring repairs are seen as a expense and many clients want the spring change done for as cheap as possible, this is not the right approach to changing garage door springs as the garage doors springs are the single most important part of the garage door and should be repaired properly, other garage door companies will sell you second hand springs and this is our most common call out on garage doors.

Should I replace both springs?


You may be tempted to save money on parts and labour by replacing just one spring, but you’ll likely need to replace both when one spring breaks Johannesburg North.

Garage doors have two springs, one on either side of the door. The springs exert the force that makes the door light enough to be lifted. When one garage door spring breaks, many homeowners wonder if they need to replace both springs or if they can replace only the one that malfunctioned. Read below to learn why you should always replace both garage door springs when one breaks.

Can a garage door operate with one spring?

Both springs must work together to pull the garage door up and bring it down gently. When operation relies on one spring, in addition to presenting safety concerns, it can also lead to wear and tear on the door.


You shouldn’t try to balance a garage door yourself. While replacing both springs is critical for your door to function again, only a professional can provide the repairs you need. Garage door repair technicians understand how to perform tests on the door’s balance in Johannesburg North.
