Understanding Garage Door Springs:

Garage doors commonly use two types of springs: torsion springs (mounted above the door) and extension springs (mounted on the sides). These springs are tightly wound and store mechanical energy to support the door's weight and facilitate movement.

When to Replace Garage Door Springs:

  • Lifespan
    1. Garage door springs typically last around 7-10 years with regular use.
  • Signs of Wear
    1. Visible gaps or breaks in the spring coils.
    2. Difficulty in opening or closing the door smoothly.
    3. Unusual noises during operation, such as squeaking or grinding.
  • Door Balance
    1. If your door becomes unbalanced or doesn't stay in position when partially open, it could indicate spring issues.
