Garage door springs are an essential part of the garage door’s function. The springs include large wire coils which are designed to help lift and lower the garage doors by handling their tension.
There are essentially two types of garage door springs: garage door torsion springs, or garage door extension springs.
The garage door repairmen that you can contact through this website generally deal with garage door torsion springs
Garage door torsion springs can be dangerous to fix, which is why it is recommended that garage door owners call a garage door technician to deal with the problem, rather than trying to fix the problem themselves. This is because there is a danger that the garage door torsion spring can wrap around a repairman’s arm, and possibly injure them. Garage door owners should use extreme caution if trying to make the repair themselves, although the best decision may be to just avoid the risk altogether by calling for a garage door repairman.
The springs carry the weight of the garage door, and help lift the garage door once the garage door owner operates the automatic garage door opener.
There are two types of torsion springs which our garage door service technicians can provide: galvanized steel springs, which are zinc coated to protect against rust, and black-coated springs; the black coated springs are oil-tempered.
Replacing a garage door spring can generally take anywhere from 45 minutes to 1.5 hours.
