Broken Garage Door Springs – What To Do
Types of springs
The two categories of springs are extension and torsion springs. The torsion springs are found above the door. The extension springs are found on either side of the garage door. So, what do you need to know about them? Torsion springs are designed to not only create torque but also lift the garage door. Extension springs are simple, yet effective in providing a counterbalance to the weight of the door and also help raise it.
