Garage Door Spring Replacement

Garage Door Spring Replacement

The primary purpose of a garage door spring is to counteract the force of gravity on the garage door. As a result, the garage door spring supports most of the door’s weight, enabling you or your garage door opener to open and close the door quickly and easily.

Types of Garage Door Springs for Spring Replacement

There are two types of springs commonly used for garage door applications.

  • Torsion Springs for Spring Replacement

Torsion springs are typically installed directly above the garage door and balance the door’s weight so that it takes the same amount of pressure to open and close. A properly balanced door lifts smoothly and easily, stopping as needed as each section lifts.

  • Extension Springs for Spring Replacement

Extension springs are typically mounted above the garage door track, although they may be mounted on the sides vertically. An extension spring uses the pulling force of the spring to pull the garage door upward against gravity.
