Garage Door Springs Repair
Garage door springs can be very dangerous and always need to be well maintained by a professional.
There are two different types of garage door springs:
1. Torsion Springs are located along the top of your garage door; looking at your garage door from the inside and straight up across the top of the door on a bar. Often on a single car garage door you will have one spring and on a double car garage door you will have two springs.
2. Extension Springs are located along the sides of your garage door; looking at your garage door from the inside you will notice two springs running along the sides of the track, which are parallel with the floor. With it extension springs you should always have a cable running through the spring ("Saftey Cable") which will keep the spring in place when if it breaks.
Often when a spring or springs break your garage door will be heavy to lift. Sometimes the springs will pop cables.
It is always recommended that you call a professional if you have a broken spring.
