What is a Garage Door Spring?

Garage door springs enable the opening and closing of your garage door with ease by counterbalancing the weight of the door. There are two types of garage door springs- torsion springs and extension springs. When mounting residential garage doors, usually a standard torsion spring is used. For lighter garage doors, one spring will suffice, but generally it is safer to install two garage door springs, in case one spring breaks when the door is opened.

How Does a Garage Door Spring Break?

Your garage door spring can break for a number of reasons, including natural wear and tear, poor maintenance, extreme fluctuations in temperature and more. As one of the more common repair requests, New York Garage Doors is always prepared, with the necessary tools and parts, to repair your broken garage door spring.

How to Tell if Your Garage Door Spring is Broken

If your garage door does not open at all, it could be due to a broken spring. Also, if you are nearby when it breaks- the spring will make a very loud noise as it breaks. For your own safety, you should not try to manually open your garage door and we do not recommend repairing the spring by yourself. Instead, call New York Garage Doors- available any time for emergency repairs across New York.
