Torsion Springs

There are a variety of springs used to make garage doors work. One of the common ones is torsion springs, which accommodate the garage door’s weigh through a strong beam along the top of the door. Cables are used to make sure the springs uncoil when the door is opening, and coil when the door is closing.

Extension Springs

Extension springs are another common spring system in garage doors. They work by extending and constricting when the door opens and closes. These extension springs are mounted inside the garage door system to allow it to handle the weight of the door.

Extension springs extend and contract to offset the garage door’s weight, allowing proper operation. As the door is opened, the springs tighten, so the door can easily go up. When the door is closed, the extension springs return to the original position. These springs are under intense tension, so we always recommend calling a professional to work on them. Trying to repair or replace springs without the proper knowledge and skills could lead to further damage or even injury.
