More Info About Spring Repair & Replacement
Torsion Springs runs across a bar at the top of the inside of the garage door. The spring is wound and under immense tension. It’s the tension of the torsion spring lifts the heavy garage door.
Torsion springs are designed to last for about 10,000 cycles, or about 10-12 years of normal use. The springs of your garage door are actually part of the door itself and not the door opener. Garage door springs support the entire weight of the garage door. The springs are wound or stretched under pressure, tightening and loosening as you close and open the garage door.
Broken extension spring
Extension: Springs are on either side of the door, perpendicular to it. These springs act like big, steel rubber bands, stretching as the garage door is lowered. The natural tendency of the stretched spring is to lift the door.
