Garage Door Springs

Broken garage door springs can create quite a headache because your door isn’t going to open and close properly or at all. This could cause your car to be stuck in the garage, or you may have to park it outside, which is vulnerable to vandalism and theft. It also means anything inside the garage and your home is at risk.

Twin Cities garage door company offers same-day service so that the stress can be eliminated as soon as possible. Where to locate the Garage Door Springs

When a torsion spring is broken, the door isn’t going to lift.

If you aren’t sure whether the garage door spring is broken, look at the spring around 12 inches above the top of the door when it is closed. You will see two long coil springs that are either black or silver. If either of the springs doesn’t look right, chances are you have a torsion spring issue, and the door isn’t going to lift. The function of the spring is to balance gravity and the weight of the door against each other, so the garage door opener doesn’t have to use a lot of pull to open the door. Gravity wins when the springs are compromised, and the door won’t raise. When the springs are working, the door feels lighter than it actually is.
