Garage Door Spring Repair
Torsion and Extension Springs
Torsion and extension springs run along either the upper torsion bar or the right and left door tracks; they stretch and extend to pull the garage door open and closed. If your garage door’s torsion or extension spring breaks, you may find yourself unable to open your garage door to leave for work.

Garage Door Spring Replacement: Is it a DIY Task?
Some homeowners may try to tackle this job single-handedly in an attempt to lessen garage door spring replacement costs. If you plan to perform a torsion spring replacement or repair yourself, be sure that you are knowledgeable about the risks involved and that you are confident in your ability to perform a spring repair successfully. With springs that exert up to 500 pounds of force when extended, homeowners can be seriously injured or killed if the spring replacement is not handled correctly.
How Does a Torsion Spring Work?
Your garage door is held up by a torsion spring attached to cables mounted on the side of the door. These cables are manipulated by pulleys which wind the spring and close the garage door. The tension maintained by your garage door springs is key, as the proper tension is one of the elements that keeps your garage door opening and closing smoothly. However, the force exerted by this tension can cause serious danger for a homeowner trying to replace the springs him or herself. Since torsion springs must be repaired while the door is closed and the springs are under tension, there may be risk of bodily injury. If you are not comfortable replacing your garage door springs yourself, please see a professional at Toby’s Doors for cost effective garage door spring replacement.
