Springs

Garage Door Spring Replacement –Garage doors usually use either a torsion spring or extension springs to lift, or counter balance the weight of your overhead door. Torsion springs offer the best life expectancy. However, they are dangerous and should only be replaced by a trained garage door professional. Extension springs mostly used on smaller garage doors, or where headroom is an issue. In order to get your garage door balanced and aligned, you must use the right size of springs. For instant, if your garage door weighs 120 pounds, then you need to use a spring or a pair of springs with 120 pounds of lift force.

 

Torsion Garage Door Springs – Torsion spring replacement is a dangerous task mostly because people do not have the proper tools and training to put tension on the springs.

 

Garage door torsion springs are mounted above the garage door opening on a bar right In the middle of the opening. On each end of the bar attached a drum with lift cables that are attached to the bottom of the door. Smaller garage doors only require one spring, but bigger overhead doors will require two springs. Torsion spring life span determined by a few things: the wire gage, the overall length of the spring, the diameter of the spring and the quality of the metal.
