Garage Door Torsion SpringBack To Our Services
There are two kinds of garage door springs, torsion and extensions springs. Torsion springs are coiled around a cylinder and located in a housing placed at the top of the garage door, whereas extension springs are attached to the side of the door with the use of extension arms. In general use, extension arms can be more dangerous. When an extension spring cable breaks it can fly out and injure anyone close by, or damage things that are within reach of the cable. Torsion springs on the other hand do not cause any damage when the cable breaks. However, it is during the replacement process that torsion springs are more dangerous.

The spring is the center of the whole door assembly. It stores all the power to lift or lower the door. The motor controls the door movement, but with the proper balance, it only takes a small amount of power to lift the door. Balancing the door means that it is at the point where the least power is required to move the door. A properly working door is balanced where a child can raise the door if it was unlocked.
Repairing the torsion spring will include balancing the door. This is something that can be done properly by an experienced technician. When you have any problems that can be dangerous to repair, it is advisable to call in the experts.
