Why You Shouldn’t Buy Your Garage Door Springs from a Big Box Store

By |July 30th, 2016|Big Box Stores, Competitor Quality, Garage Door Repair, Princeton, Springs|

We were called out to do a garage door repair in Princeton, NJ. The homeowner had a handyman replace 4 springs on his 2 doors “no more than a year and a half ago.” The handyman used springs that were too small for the door. That’s not surprising.

What is surprising is that one of his springs broke after less than a year and a half!

We are used to seeing garage door springs (and other parts) from the big guys go after just a few years. But this is the first time we’ve seen a spring break this quickly.

Big box stores seem to have no issue sacrificing quality for cost savings – especially in areas where the customer might not know the difference. Small cost-savings are acceptable to them, even if the difference in quality is huge. Parts manufactured with low quality recycled materials contain impurities that compromise their structural integrity.

Your garage door springs are under a lot of tension and when they break, they are dangerous. Using inferior quality springs is a major safety issue.

We installed this beautiful carriage house garage door in Kendall Park, NJ.

The people we installed the door for have done a great job fixing up the outside of their house with new siding, shutters, windows, etc.They wanted an overlay-type garage door, with a specific panel design that they saw on another house. We worked with them to choose a Coachman Collection door from Clopay. It’s a beautiful door and really finishes off the home’s exterior nicely. It’s durable and virtually maintenance-free, with a richer, more realistic look than many other options out there.

From experience, they knew that using a local contractor, instead of a big box store, was the right choice. We made sure that we did a neat, safe, durable installation for them, leagues beyond the work we’ve seen from the big guys.

We use the same brands, with better materials, better hardware, better workmanship than the big box stores – all at a lower price!

*Brand: Clopay
*Brand: Coachman CD13
