Types of Garage Door Springs

There are three different types of springs used by garage door companies: torsion, extension, and Wayne-Dalton. Torsion springs are the most common, seen in most residential garage door systems. They use a type of rotational force, called torque, which spins the garage door spring as the door moves. Torsion springs can come in sets of one or two, depending on the size of your garage door. Extension springs operate a little differently. They stretch to bear the weight of the garage door and usually come in sets of two. Every garage door company does not carry Wayne-Dalton springs because they’re exclusive to Wayne-Dalton. Whatever the type of spring you have, we’d be happy to provide garage door spring replacement from our location in Bainbridge or in any of the surrounding areas, including Binghamton, Oneonta, and Norwich.

Why Do Springs Break? 

  • Wear and Tear: Springs undergo the most wear and tear of all garage door hardware. Every day, they take on the entire weight of your garage door. Over time, this can lead to wear and tear, which is why garage door springs have limited lifespans. When they’ve undergone so many cycles, they’ll snap and need to be replaced. 
  • Neglected Maintenance: Garage doors experience extreme wear and tear, so they need to be well-maintained. This can help extend the life of the springs and increase their functionality. 
  • Unbalanced Parts: Garage doors must be balanced to operate correctly. Springs help facilitate this balance because they hold the door’s weight. A broken spring will throw off the balance and cause a lack of control over the door’s movement. 
  • Rust Build-Up: Rust can accumulate on springs over time, creating excess friction. This will add to the springs’ wear and tear, decreasing their functionality. Rust can be taken care of when the springs are cleaned during a garage door tune-up. 

Why You Shouldn’t Delay Garage Door Spring Repair

  1. Safety: We stress the importance of safety in your garage system. The garage door weighs hundreds of pounds, which means that if it falls on anything, it can cause a lot of damage.  
  2. Damage: A broken garage door spring causes a lack of balance. The garage door may slam shut unexpectedly or move inconsistently. It can also harm other garage door hardware, which adds to repair costs. 
  3. Cost: If you delay garage door spring repair, other garage door parts will likely need to be repaired, too. The garage door opener will have taken on the excess strain. For the most cost-efficient option, stop using your garage door when the spring breaks and call Choice Garage Doors for garage door spring repair.

Can I watch a DIY spring replacement tutorial? 

While there are spring replacement tutorials online, we highly discourage you from attempting garage door spring repair yourself. The risk of injury is too high, which is why it’s best to contact professionals.
