Garage Door Springs
Torsion Springs and Extension Springs are the two kind of springs garage doors rely on. Adjusting, replacing or installing a garage door spring on your own can cause fatal injury. Below you’ll find more information about each type of spring and our services.
Torsion springs are located above the garage door opening, wound-up on a rod. There are two, one on each side of the center of the door. When one breaks, the other one cannot maintain the weight of the door on its own and typically breaks shortly after the first.
Furthermore, for your garage door to be in top operating condition your garage door’s springs should be sized correctly, otherwise your garage door will be out of balance, which may cause damage and is dangerous.
Here’s a simple test you can do:
- Step 1) Close your garage door
- Step 2) Pull the safety release (usually a red cord), this disconnects the opener from the door
- Step 3) Try lifting you garage door
If you cant lift the garage door or the door doesn’t stay put when you release it (moves up or down) then your springs must be adjusted or replaced.
Length, inside diameter, type of end and wire size are what characterize garage door extension springs. Extension springs are are made specifically for a door height. Each door height must have the proper extension spring installed. Using the wrong spring causes damage to the door and shortens the spring’s life, which costs you more in the long run.
Most doors only have one spring on each side of the door, but some type of doors have two or more on each side. It really depends on the garage door manufacture, door height, weight and other factors.
Your extension springs are responsible for assisting your door to open and close. If they’re broken, rusty (or some of their parts are), then you will need to replace them. American Garage Door and Repair are professionals and you can trust us to service your garage doors needs.
Oil Tempered or Galvanized?
Not all type of springs are made of the same quality. For example, Galvanized springs tend to stretch over time and lose their elasticity, which cause your door to move out of balance. We at American Garage Door and Repair use high cycle oil tempered springs, which do not stretch, are much more elastic and are of higher quality. That is why we are confident when offering a lifetime guarantee on all garage door spring replacements.
