Garage Door Springs:
Your residential garage door operates on two different springs. There are both extension springs and torsion springs. Extension springs are located on both sides of the door while torsion springs are located on the upper middle part of the door and some times on both sides of the door as well. Garage doors are very heavy, the engine that run the door up and down, is being supported by extension spring or torsion springs
The spring functions support the weight of the door and help the motor carry the door up and down. Replacing springs on your own is a very dangerous process and we do not recommend it under any circumstance. Garage door springs function under heavy tensions and if aligned incorrectly can abruptly fall and potentially hurt you and your family. If garage door springs aren’t properly installed they can damage the motor of your garage doors which can be a much more costly investment in the future. Spring replacements should only be done by a certified expert technician and this is why you should give us a call. Garage door springs should be replaced every several years and should be maintained every three months to avoid future problems. Springs can come in all different sizes and shapes.
A wrong size spring that installed on the door, will probably breaks very quickly under the pressure, or will damage the engine. That obviously, will be more expensive and unnecessary.

A torsion spring counterbalance system consists of one or two tightly wound up springs on a steel shaft with cable drums at both ends. The entire apparatus mounts on the header wall above the garage door and has three supports: a center bearing plate with a steel or nylon bearing and two end bearing plates at both ends. The springs themselves consist of the steel wire with a stationary cone at one end and a winding cone at the other end. The stationary cone is attached to the center bearing plate. The winding cone consists of holes every 90 degrees for winding the springs and two set screws to secure the springs to the shaft. Steel counterbalance cables run from the roller brackets at the bottom corners of the door to a notch in the cable drums. When the door is raised, the springs unwind and the stored tension lifts the door by turning the shaft, thus turning the cable drums, wrapping the cables around the grooves on the cable drums. When the door is lowered, the cables unwrap from the drums and the springs are rewound to full tension. and the safety of your family. Replacing the faulty door opener, we do not disrupt the day’s activities
An extension spring counterbalance system consists of a pair of stretched springs running parallel to the horizontal tracks. The springs lift the door through a system of pulleys and counterbalance cables running from the bottom corner brackets through the pulleys. When the door is raised, the springs contract, thus lifting the door as the tension is released.
