Garage door springs provide us with an essential service. Every time you utilize your garage door, the high tension springs help lift it and lower it securely and in a controlled way, indicating they are under a lot of stress and strain.
This means you should always have them inspected for safety reasons as often as possible to check they aren’t going to snap and break soon. The two different types of garage springs are torsion and extension.
Torsion springs are on a rod above the door, and there are usually two of them either side of the center. They lift the door either by manual lifting from you or electronically. They typically have a life cycle of 10-20 thousand uses, and if one breaks, the other one is likely to go soon, so get them both replaced at the same time if possible.
Extension springs work differently by going along the right and left door tracks and are more simple to repair. However, they do come with a particular safety risk because they are under extreme tension the whole time, so make sure you get them properly fitted.
It should be easy to see which type of spring your garage door uses just by looking at where it is. If you are in any apprehension about the safety of your spring, make sure you have a professional look at it as soon as possible.
