Why are Springs Important?

Springs are the most important piece of equipment for your garage door. Without it, your garage door can not open. Whether your garage is powered by a motor or you open it manually, springs offer the support and balance needed for your garage doors to work smoothly.

If your garage door is not opening, your springs are one of the seven reasons why it could be malfunctioning. Springs are undergoing a significant amount of pressure and weight from your garage door whenever it is closed. Therefore, it can get worn down, shattered, and lose its effectiveness. If this is the case for your garage, call us today.

In the event of an emergency, like you need your car to get to work and can’t wait for us to assist you, find out the different methods to reach your belongings quickly.

How do Garage Springs Work?

Car Entering GarageThere are two types of garage spring methods to open your garage door: extension and torsion. The extension spring method works with a motor and cables to open your garage door. The extension spring is located on your garage ceiling and is extended when your garage door is closed, and compressed when your garage door opens. The constant stretching and compression of your extension spring can lead to wear and tear over time.

The second way a garage spring works is the torsion method. A torsion spring is located horizontally above your garage door. This spring is connected to cables at the bottom corners of your garage door. As the garage door closes the cables cause the torsion spring to wind up. When the garage door opens, the torsion spring releases its tightness resulting in energy allowing the door to lift.

Whether your garage door opens with extensions springs that stretch and compress, or through torsion springs that wind up each method puts tremendous pressure on your springs. Call us to check if your springs need repair.
