Serving Las Vegas and surrounding communities.

If you had to lift a 300 pound door 6 or more times a day, you’d get tired – very tired. The same is true of your garage door springs because they do the heavy lifting for you. The springs are wound or stretched under heavy pressure. They tighten and loosen as you open and close the door, and, sooner or later, they will break or need to be replaced. This is a job for a professional. Because the springs are under heavy pressure, they can cause serious damage or, even, injury. You want a garage door spring replacement company that has a proven track record, can respond in a hurry and can work on your garage and garage door springs no matter what brand. You want Authentic, your garage door repair expert.

The only garage door repair service recommended by Rosie on the House

You simply can’t ask for a better company for garage door spring repair or replacement.

Check your garage door springs regularly. Look for signs of wear or rust. If your door feels heavy when you open it manually this can be a sign that the springs are out of balance. They should be checked by a professional garage door repair technician to see if they can be put back into balance or if they need to be replaced. Ditto, with springs that are noisy. This could be as simple as needing lubrication or, again, it could be a sign of a bigger problem.

It cannot be stressed enough that garage door springs can be dangerous. You should have your garage door inspected by a garage door maintenance and repair company on a yearly basis. Just like you have for air conditioner inspected or your car serviced, this is an important part of keeping your garage door safe and operating properly.

There are two types of garage door springs

Torsion springs and extension springs.

Torsion springs are secured to a metal shaft above the garage door. Torsion springs balance the garage door with torque. The torsion spring unwinds and winds as the door is open and closed. There are two types of torsion springs, galvanized and oil tempered. Authentic recommends and uses oil tempered torsion springs. Oil tempered torsion springs provide you with years of trouble free operation.

Extension springs

These springs counterbalance the garage door by pulling on cables. They are mounted above and parallel to the horizontal tracks on each side of the garage door and balance the door as they stretch and retract.


Another part of your garage door spring system are the garage door brackets at the bottom of the garage door. Again, these are under tension and should not be adjusted by anyone other than a garage door professional.

Containment system

One of the things you want to look in your garage is a safety containment system. Springs may be enclosed in a metal tube to keep them form from doing damage if they break or there may be safety cable running through extension springs. Again, they help contain a spring when it breaks. You want to be sure that your garage has some safety containment in place.

What to Do If a Spring Breaks

So, what happens if your garage door springs break. The first thing you’re going to want to do is get your car out of the garage. You probably have an emergency release cord.
