Springs are very important for the smooth and safe operation of your garage door. They help in raising and lowering the door and take up most of the doors weight. Because of this springs are prone to wear and tear and there is a huge possibility they might break during operation. Broken springs should never be ignored. First, they are important for smooth operation. Secondly, since they take up most of the weight of the door, if they malfunction, the door might come crashing down and lead to unimaginable damage.

Torsion springs are becoming common these days as they offer convenience to home and office owners. Torsion springs are positioned above the door and they balance the door. It is secured with a metal shaft and the metal shaft runs through the middle of the springs. The springs lift the majority of the weight of the garage and for that reason, they are prone to wear and tear. If the springs break the door won’t suddenly come down, as the cables will hold the door in place. This is an added safety feature for torsion springs and that is why they are becoming the preferred choice for many of our customers.
Residences with single garage doors or big industrial houses with big steel garage doors in place have started using torsion springs for more convenience and added safety. These springs are generally expensive and have a life expectancy of only 7 years. Get in touch with us to know more about torsion springs.
Extension springs are the second type of springs that are generally installed on garage doors. Extension springs work independently to each other. They run parallel to the track and help in opening and closing the door. Extension springs are prone to quicker wear and tear as they work independently. That is why despite being a lower cost option, homeowners and businesses tend to opt for torsion springs.
