Garage Door Torsion Springs

A Necessary Piece To Your Overhead Door. Tightly wound to create torque, torsion springs play a massive part in balancing the garage door’s weight. This balancing allows you to open and close your door manually quickly. As the garage door opens, the torsion springs release torque so the rollers can go across the tracks to lift it. It would help if you had your garage door springs lubed, counterbalanced, and maintained every year. This helps ensure that your garage door springs will continue to operate correctly. Bitter conditions, regular use, and lack of maintenance will weaken and damage your garage door spring, leading to it breaking. Our qualified technicians can replace your weak/broken torsion spring with our Max Life springs; they are assured to last longer than most people own their homes; more importantly, they come with a lifetime warranty! It’s true; most residential garage doors come with two coil springs. Two springs keep each other in check in case one fails. This way, your garage door doesn’t come down and crush your car or something else. Your garage door can only work well when both springs are in proper working condition.

Important Garage Door Parts

Other Important Garage Door Parts

In addition to torsion springs, your door needs to work correctly with a few other garage door parts.

Torsion Rod

This shaft, located right above the door, has the job of keeping the torsion springs in place. Remember, these rods are only necessary for torsion springs for garage doors.


Drums are another vital aspect of getting a garage door open. They are located on each end of the torsion rod and use its torque to adjust the cables up or let them down and stabilize and balance the door.

Nylon Rollers

The rollers move along the track as it opens and closes. Furthermore, there are different kinds out on the market. Some made of steel; some of the nylon. The most preferred material is nylon. They are strong, dependable, not to mention made of higher-quality materials, yet affordable. Nonetheless, rollers are one of the main reasons garage doors can be so loud. It’s generally agreed that nylon rollers are quieter, yet the ball bearings in rollers also affect the sound. Ball-bearing rollers are high-quality, easy-to-find rollers on the market. They are the most sought after due to their extreme life span. These rollers can last 10 to 70 years! Contact us today for your free estimate.

When to Replace your Springs

Time To Replace Your Garage Door Springs

The Lifespan Of A Basic Torsion Spring, On Average, Is Seven To Nine Years. The more you use your door, the shorter its life will be. Make a habit of occasionally checking if your torsion springs are in good condition. Please do this by disconnecting the motor from your  door and opening it manually.

Why Replacing Garage Door Torsion Springs Is So Important

When the overhead door consists of two springs, both need replacing simultaneously. Torsion springs tend to break down at the same rate. If you return one now, it won’t be long before you do the next one.  Having both torsion springs in working order is necessary so that you can stay free of harm and frustration.
