Understanding Garage Door Springs

Garage door springs play a crucial role in safely opening and closing your garage door by balancing its weight. When you open the door, the springs store energy to make it easier to lift. As you close it, the stored energy is released, ensuring a smooth and gentle closure.

When a spring is broken, it can throw off the balance of your garage door, making it harder to open and close. As a result, the other parts of the system have to work harder to function properly whenever you use the door.

Types of Garage Door Springs

Whether you have torsion or extension springs — or aren’t sure which you have — our technicians can repair or replace them safely.

Torsion Springs

Torsion springs are mounted above the door opening and they use torque to lift the door. It is highly recommended not to attempt fixing or replacing torsion springs on your garage door by yourself. Due to their tightly wound nature, torsion springs are hazardous and challenging to repair. Mishandling them can result in severe injuries. Our team possesses the necessary skills and tools to replace your damaged torsion spring with a new one safely.
