    Garage Door Springs

    Ensure smooth and safe garage door operation with reliable spring services from Hilliard Garage Door Repair Shop.

    Garage door springs are the heart of your garage door system. These powerful springs counterbalance the weight of the door, enabling smooth lifting and lowering. There are two main types of garage door springs:

    • Torsion Springs: Located above the garage door opening, torsion springs use a winding mechanism to store tension. As the door opens, the torsion spring unwinds, lifting the door.
    • Extension Springs: Located on either side of the door tracks, extension springs stretch to create tension as the door opens.

    Understanding Garage Door Spring Issues:

    Over time, garage door springs can wear out due to constant pressure and cycles of opening and closing. Here are some signs that your garage door spring might need attention:

    • Age: Springs typically have a lifespan of 10,000 to 15,000 cycles. If your door is older than 10 years, consider preventative maintenance or spring replacement.
    • Uneven Door Movement: A door that tilts or appears unbalanced when opening or closing could indicate a failing spring.
    • Unusual Noises: Loud banging or clanging noises during operation could be a sign of a broken spring.
    • Difficulty Lifting or Lowering the Door: If the door feels unusually heavy or requires excessive force to operate, it could be due to a weak or broken spring.

    Safety Precautions with Garage Door Springs:

    Garage door springs store significant tension and can be dangerous if not handled properly. Here's why it's crucial to leave spring repair to professionals:

    • High Tension: Improper handling of a wound torsion spring or a stretched extension spring can result in serious injury.
    • Specialized Tools: Technicians use specific tools and techniques to safely replace springs.
    • Expertise in Spring Selection: Choosing the right size and type of spring is crucial for proper door balance and operation.
