Very little attention is paid to the garage door springs considering they are the single most important part of your garage door. If it weren't for the springs, your door would lack the ability to open and close, which we'd say is a pretty important feature.
Broken garage door springs are one of the most common repair calls Industrial Door Systems receives, so if you are looking to have your springs replaced you've come to the right place.

There are typically two basic types of garage door springs: torsion springs and extension springs. Torsion springs are located above a closed door and use torque to easily open and close garage doors. Torsion springs are commonly found on commercial doors as well as larger residential doors. Extension springs are found on either side of the door above the tracks and are most common in sectional and one-piece doors.
Both torsion and extension springs can be extremely dangerous. Because the springs are wound very tightly, if they were to break they could cause a lot of damage as well as bodily injury. If you suspect that your garage door springs are in need of maintenance, let it to the pros and call Industrial Door and Dock.
Extension springs help provide additional support to a garage door to help it quickly and easily spring open and close. They are the most common type of spring behind residential doors. Commercial extension springs tend to be larger in diameter than residential extension springs to increase their torque, thereby supporting heavier doors.
Extension springs are typically found on residential doors and work by stretching from inside the garage to a point over the garage door. Extension springs are generally smaller in diameter and lighter in weight than torsion springs, giving them the ability to provide a more powerful spring force for closing the door. Because extension springs run the entire length of the door near its bottom edge, they are visible near each hinge.
Residential and commercial garage door spring repair is an integral part of garage door and opener repair services, but it’s important to know how they work before you call a professional to correct any issues. These problems can occur for many different reasons, from everyday use to extreme weather damage or heavy-duty usage. Over time, like most pieces of machinery, a low-impact malfunction can escalate into a major problem, preventing your garage door from properly functioning.
