REPLACE A BROKEN GARAGE DOOR SPRING
Garage door springs have the hardest job of all the moving parts on a garage door. They are continuously being pushed and pulled as the door opens and closes. Because of this, garage door springs should be chosen to match the weight and height of your garage door. A choice is typically made between two main types of springs.
A broken garage door spring is one of the most common garage door issues. Due to the longevity of a professionally installed garage door, springs last about 5-12 years (depending on the quality of the material), and thus are usually the first items to being to fail.
Our team of professionals will inspect your garage door and will determine the type of spring system you have, followed by a briefing of the technician, where he/she will recommend the best solution to replace a broken garage door spring on your garage door. Type of springs that currently install on most doors are: Torsion Spring, Extension Spring, Wayne Dalton Systems, HD Commercial Garage Springs.
Garage door springs come in different shapes and sizes and with different mechanisms. The three main types are torsion springs, extension springs, and torquemaster springs. Understanding the difference between a torqmaster spring and a torsion spring, for instance, can be helpful when it is time for the repairs if applicable.
When force is applied, torsion springs twist and turn inward at the level of the shaft and lift the garage doors through the use of torque.
There are lots of different wire sizes and lengths that people can use for their torsion springs, and they’re going to have to decide which ones are going to work when it comes to the size and make of their garage doors.
Torsion springs can support a lot of weight and they tend to be more durable than extension springs, but extension springs are cheaper. Some people might be better off investing in torsion springs. However, extension springs might end up working well enough for some customers.
Chances are, when people see garage door springs on a house, they’re going to be extension springs.
These springs provide a counterbalancing force in order to support the door as they extend. It takes more force for more of the expansion to occur.
Usually, that force is going to be generated by a motor when it comes to automatic garage doors. However, people can still technically generate that force with their hands. Extension springs need safety cables in order to really keep them in place.
Extension springs stretch, and they need to be prevented from bouncing out of position if some of the other equipment fails. Some people might think that extension springs are worth it despite these potential problems since these springs are certainly inexpensive.
These springs are made using a system of special cones which connect the gears and the winding unit. The gears turn the winding cone when the spring is getting wound up in the activation process.
The spring raises the door when the door is opened.
These springs are similar to torsion springs, but they’re tougher and smaller and tend to work more efficiently. It might be comparatively easy for people to switch from torquemaster springs to torsion springs, and from torsion springs to torquemaster springs as it happens.
In some cases, people might be able to make the switch from one type of garage door spring to the next easily. However, in many other cases, it is going to be genuinely difficult to do so, and people are probably going to need to have entirely new garage door spring systems installed in order to make this work in the first place. Making this switch is going to be harder in some cases than others.
However, it still does make sense to upgrade to certain garage door springs if they really are going to give people a much better experience, and that is going to be the case with some of the newer garage door springs.

Lawrence took my call right away. He came out first thing the next morning. And when we had to re-schedule, he came back the same day after he was finished with all his other appointments. He not only replaced the springs on the door that needed fixing, he oiled and inspected the other door, too. He was nice, friendly, competent, and quick! Oh, and his prices were great! He gave me a discount for no reason, too. 🙂
