  • Fading or sagging
  • More than two sections are cracked or bent

How often should my garage door be serviced?

The International Door Association states that your garage door should be serviced by a professional every year. Because your overhead garage door is like a moving wall, so it’s crucial to keep it running properly with adequate maintenance and repair.

Why are Precision’s springs more expensive than most?

Normal springs last anywhere from 5,000 to 10,000 cycles – one full opening and closing action – but Precision Door’s springs last for 25,000 to 50,000 cycles. Precision Door’s uses an extension spring with a heavy-duty clip end to ensure top-notch strength and reliability, and the torsion spring is coated to protect it from rust. These springs will last up to five times longer than other companies’ springs, making them worth the price.
