How Garage Door Springs Work
Garage door springs serve as the mechanisms that enable you to manually or automatically open a garage door. For instance, if your door weighs 200 lbs, you would require springs that can lift the same weight. In the case of a significantly heavier door weighing 650 lbs, you would need springs designed to hold the extra weight. The spring acts as the counterbalance to the door’s weight. Without it, neither you nor your opener would be able to open the door without exerting an unsafe amount of effort. When choosing your garage door springs, you have a choice of a galvanized spring for torsion or two oil-tempered springs. We recommend using two springs as they are safer and more reliable.
Garage Door Spring Types
Torsion springs are a specific type of tension spring that can be found above the garage door, connected to a shaft. On both ends of this shaft, there are winding cones that hold the spring in place. The other end of the spring features a stationary cone, which helps to stabilize the mechanism.
Extension springs are installed on both sides of the garage door parallel to the tracks. They stretch and extend each time the door is in use. Extension springs pose more of a threat if they break, so it’s especially important to schedule spring repair if you notice an issue.
Signs You Need a Garage Door Spring Replacement
There are a few signs that you need full-on garage door spring replacement in Phoenix, AZ:
- Your garage door feels overly heavy when opening manually.
- Your garage door appears unbalanced.
- Your cables are loose when your door is in the fully open position.
- Your springs are visibly rusted, damaged, or missing.
- Your garage door is making loud grinding or squeaking noises during operation.
When replacing garage door torsion springs or extension springs, we will need to replace both springs so that the new spring doesn’t overwork to accommodate the older one. This way, you won’t have to worry about any replacements for the foreseeable future.
Service for Broken Garage Door Extension Springs in Phoenix, AZ
Garage door springs hold the weight of the door, and enable the opener system to operate correctly. Noticing this type of broken garage door spring is easy since your door won’t be able to open very far — or at all — without functional extension springs.
The extension spring expands and contracts at the garage door tracks. They run along the ceiling on each side of the door. Most of the time, these springs have safety cables to help ensure the door moves steadily. There are three types of extension springs:
- Open-looped: These springs have a looped wire at the end, making them easy to replace.
- Double-looped: These springs have two coils and are much stronger than the open-looped kind.
- Clipped end: These springs have clips at the end to reduce stress. Because of this, they are particularly durable.
