You should never underestimate the importance of the role of garage door springs in your setup. They do most of the work when it comes to supporting the weight of the door, keeping it balanced for optimum performance, and then there is the safety aspect. Since they support the weight, they work in pairs to make sure that no accidents occur from an improperly supported frame. That is why when you are looking to replace or install springs, you should know everything you can about your door’s needs, and get a professional to do the work for you because any mistakes can end up being disastrous.
Torsion coil springs are tightly wound into a metal ring to be able to store a staggering amount of pressure. This pressure is released in a controlled fashion when the door is in operation in order to provide it with the lifting strength it needs. This stored pressure can be dangerous however, when the springs are being worked on, so having a professional replace them is usually the best option.
Overhead door springs are more oblong and as the name suggests, extend their coils to regulate lifting action. These too can be a little dangerous to work on if you want to go the DIY route.
For exceptionally heavy and demanding doors,oil tempered garage door springs can offer the strength needed to keep them from failing. Since they have been tempered in hot oil, their structural integrity is greater than normal springs, making them a more expensive but far more secure option.Back To Our Services
