A Weighty Issue
Springs provide the counterbalance to the heft of a garage door, helping the opener do its job by taking the strain off of the motor. The two types of springs used in doors today are extension springs and torsion springs. Extension springs stretch and flex to store power in their coils, and torsion springs utilize a twisting motion to store power. Torsion springs are the newer option and are safer and more durable than extension springs. You can choose to upgrade your springs from extension to torsion when they need to be replaced, or before then if you want the added security of new springs. Always let a professional replace your springs to ensure that your door is safe to use.
