What are Garage Door Springs?

Garage door springs are the mechanics which allow you to open and close your garage door on command properly. There are several designs of garage door springs, but they are all designed with the same materials. Garage door springs are long metal coils that help to counteract the garage door’s weight. With these springs, you don’t have to have hulk strength to open your garage. It can easily glide open. The two main garage door spring designs are torsion springs and extension springs:

  • Torsion Springs – Torsion springs are installed directly above the garage door opening. A torsion tube is then attached from the springs to the inside of the garage door handle.
  • Extension Springs – Extension springs are installed horizontally along the garage door track rather than above the opening. These springs help to pull the door up and back into the tracks.




Best Practice for a Garage Door Spring Replacement

It can be incredibly frustrating when your garage door isn’t working or has issues. Especially when you just recently got it repaired or fixed. That’s why our Cal’s Garage Doors team follows a careful procedure with several best practices. When it comes to fixing a broken garage door spring, the following are some best practices to take into consideration:

Garage Door Spring Repair in San Jose, CA 

  • Replace Both Springs – It is best to replace both garage door springs, even if there is only one broken one. This is because when one breaks, it’s a good indicator that the other spring has also reached its life expectancy. Replacing them simultaneously reduces future inconvenience and further damage to other parts of your garage door.
  • Choose the Right Springs – Our second recommendation and best practice is to choose the right springs. Garage doors have a wide range of measurements, sizes, and materials. Because of this, there are many sizes of springs to balance all garage doors properly. When the wrong spring is chosen and installed, it can cause serious damage to your garage door system, including wearing your garage door opener and damaging any lifting gear. Our technicians at Cal’s Garage Doors know the best garage door spring for your garage door. You’ll never have to worry about getting stuck with the wrong garage door springs.
  • Thorough Safety Inspection – Our Cal’s Garage Doors team will always provide a thorough safety inspection after installing your garage door spring replacement. This free safety inspection ensures that everything is running correctly before we leave the job site. Not only does this confirm that the repair or replacement worked, but it also confirms that there are no larger issues. If we replace the spring and then do the safety inspection and your garage door still isn’t performing as it should, that lets our team know there is a bigger issue.
