Why Your Garage Door Needs Springs
There are several types of springs that garage doors use and they are placed at different positions for different functions. No matter what type of automatic garage door you own, springs are what allow the door to open and stay that way. This allows the door to stay open in order for your vehicle to pass through without the door slamming down on it. The springs provide the tension needed for doors to open. They also provide tension for them to lower with ease without crushing your property. But like every garage door component, they have a life span and you should know when yours are due for a repair or a replacement before accidents occur. Most doors have two torsion springs, if one breaks we recommend that both be changed out. They are both just as old as the other, it is cheaper to replace both at the same time, and that way you are not inconvenienced again with the other spring breaking!

Also, pay close attention to issues like your door stopping midway before it opens.
