Garage Door Spring Sales, Service and Repair

A typical "sandwich" style insulated garage door can be quite heavy. Special types of springs are connected to an overhead door to counter-balance the weight of the door. The force applied by garage door springs assists a person or electrical door operator in raising and lowering the door.

Most springs fall under one of two categories, torsion or extension. Torsion springs in a residential garage are usually fixed horizontally on the inside front wall above the garage door. A torsion system consists of two springs mounted side-by-side and wound tightly around a heavy steel bar. Extension springs can be installed either horizontally or vertically and the energy applied to the door comes from the extension of the spring.

From time to time, springs require inspection and service. There is some degree of danger involved in the service, installation or repair of overhead door springs. Loaded springs hold a tremendous amount of force which can cause serious injury. Service should be performed by a qualified garage door technician.

There are several obvious signs that your garage door springs need service. One sign is when your manually operated door is very heavy to lift open. Another is when the door will not remain stationary in a partially-open position. Another is when the springs make unusual sounds.
