A garage door spring is a critical component of the garage door system that helps to balance the door's weight and make it easier to lift. There are two main types of garage door springs: torsion springs and extension springs.
Torsion springs are located above the garage door and are the most common type used in garage doors. They work by twisting and untwisting to lift and lower the door. Torsion springs can be either single or double and are typically more durable than extension springs.
Extension springs are located along the horizontal tracks on either side of the garage door. They work by stretching and contracting to lift and lower the door. Extension springs are less common than torsion springs and are generally not as durable.
When a spring breaks or loses tension, it can make it difficult or impossible to open or close the garage door.
If you suspect your garage door spring is damaged, it's best to call a professional garage door repair technician to assess the issue and fix or replace the spring if necessary. It's important to note that garage door spring repair and replacement can be dangerous, as these springs are under high tension. It's best to leave the job to a professional with the right tools and experience.
