One of the most common problems arising from a garage door is a broken spring. There are several reasons why this happens, including changes in temperature, poorly installed or maintained springs, or simply wear and tear. Overhead door springs have a life expectancy, and since they are used on a daily basis, it is not surprising they break at some point in the future. What matters is that you have a reliable service provider to handle this part of your door which is under high tension and poses possible dangers to your safety.
Most overhead doors operate using a system of springs, and these are carefully engineered to ensure that the door moves smoothly. Torsion springs are commonly used since they are safer and work better. They are attached to a bar, and a cable is attached to the drum. The other type is called extension garage door springs, also called stretch springs. These are installed beside the horizontal track. The cable for extension springs runs from the bracket around a fixed pulley to a pulley attached to the spring. Replacing broken garage door spring is hazardous due to the torque found in a stretch in extension spring or the wound torsion spring. It may involve replacing other parts tied into the system.
