Types of Garage Door Springs
There are two main types of spring systems for overhead garage doors. We repair all kinds of garage springs - so no matter what type you have at your Houston home or business, we can repair it.
- Torsion Spring Systems: These are used most often for heavy and commercial grade garages. You can tell if a spring system is torsion based if you see the springs close to the door’s center wrapped around a metal shaft.
- Extension Spring Systems: These systems are used more often in residential garages. You can tell if your garage spring system is extension based if you see a single or double spring above the tracks of your garage. These systems often work with pulleys on either side, fit with steel safety cables. Safety cables are an absolute must, since if an extension spring snaps, a door not outfit with safety cables can become quite dangerous indeed.
