Torsion & extension Spring Replacement by Certified Technicians
Types of Springs
Torsion Springs are positioned above and parallel to the opening of the garage door. They come as a pair of springs or as a single spring. This mainly depends on the weight of the door. In addition, they slide onto a shaft that keeps the springs from flying out and causing damage when they break. This safety feature is crucial to the torsion spring garage system. When the technician installs torsion springs, they make sure to adjust the tension of the springs to fit the door’s weight. The torsion springs have some benefits over the extension springs. They are known to be safer and more durable.
Extension Springs are placed on the tracks parallel to each other. They extend when the door closes and loosen when the garage door opens. A pulley wheel and a set of cables are attached to the springs that are responsible for lifting the door. When the technician installs the extension springs, they add a safety cable that stops the springs from flying out if the break. The downside to extension springs is that you cannot control the tension of the springs.

Here are some of the best practices we apply here at Bel Air Garage Door Repair:
Replacing Both Springs – In case you did not know, a lot of garage doors these days come with two springs, both of which are installed all at once. When either of them snaps or breaks, there is no doubt that the life expectancy of the other spring is highly affected. Therefore, our technicians will always recommend garage door spring replacement for both.
Using The Right Springs – You definitely know that garage doors differ from one another coming in all sizes and weights. This also means that you need to install the right garage door spring, as doing so will ensure a proper balance of your garage door. If the wrong spring is installed, this can cause damage to the entire garage door system, which could lead to the shortening of your garage door spring’s life. What is worse is that you might be compromising the overall structural integrity of the garage door, which could only mean more money to spend in the end. Considering all of these, we always train our technicians here at Bel Air Garage Door Repair to install only the right springs. The type that complements a garage door’s weight. And in order to make sure that everything is set correctly, the technicians will perform a balance test.
Safety Inspection – Of course, we here at Bel Air Garage Door Repair value the importance of safety inspection. It is, after all, the most important aspect of the job. This is the reason that we train our technicians to ensure that a safety inspection is performed first, as this is our way of ensuring a safe environment for our customers. After the new springs are installed, the technician will perform an additional safety check in order to ensure that your garage door and all of its parts are working properly according to the safety guidelines.
