Manufacturers create different garage door springs with a variety of materials. Springs come in various sizes and weights, as well. Extension and torsion springs are the two major types of garage door springs.

Torsion and Extension Springs


Torsion Springs and Extension Springs

Extension springs are side-mounted, and run parallel to the overhead garage door track. They’re connected to the garage door pulleys and cable. Typically, extension springs are used on doors that are smaller. They’re ideal for garage doors that are eight or nine feet wide. Extension springs are generally a cinch to manage. Adjusting them is usually easy.

Torsion springs are normally used for bulkier garage doors. They hang over the door. They have a long rod that runs through it with wheels on each side that connect to the garage door cable. Lighter doors may have just one torsion spring, while heavier doors need two torsion springs.

Garage door springs expand when the door lowers. When the door raises the springs to recoil to lift the weight of the door. They’re assisted by garage door tracks and rollers. Problems occur when the springs themselves or their connecting components become misaligned or worn.

Sometimes some springs exert more force than others. When weaker springs don’t support enough weight they put pressure on the other parts to do more work. This can cause balance issues or wear down overused components.

You can troubleshoot these issues by contacting a technician to realign, repair, or replace your springs.

Cable Services

Cables are looped around drums. They wind up around the drums as garage doors open and uncoil as the doors close. Cables stretch down the length of doors from the drums and attach to the bottom of the door panels.

We don’t recommend you fixing or replacing your own garage door cables. Leave the job to experienced, certified garage door mechanics. Garage door springs put cables under extreme tension and are enormously dangerous. This is especially true if they are handled by homeowners without suitable training and tools.

Trading out damaged cables requires the containment of tension produced by the springs. One way to do this is to disengage the springs, replace the cable, and then correctly re-engage the springs. This is a complicated and perilous process.

Just like the rest of your garage door systems, before it’s said and done, your garage door cables will no doubt need some attention and maintenance to keep them in good working order.

We can provide routine inspections of your garage door system, including the cables! Contact us for more information!
