Why Garage Door Spring Repair Matters

Understanding the importance of garage door spring repair is crucial for every homeowner. Let’s explore why timely repairs are essential and the signs that indicate you need professional help.

Signs You Need Spring Repair

Recognizing the early signs of spring issues can save you from costly repairs down the line. Here are key indicators to watch for:

  1. Door won’t open or close properly
  2. Loud noises during operation
  3. Visible gaps in the springs
  4. Door feels heavy when manually lifting

Ignoring these signs can lead to more severe problems, including:

  • Complete door failure
  • Safety risks for family members
  • Potential damage to vehicles or property
  • Increased energy costs due to poor insulation

Types of Garage Door Springs

Garage doors utilize various spring systems, each with unique characteristics. Let’s examine the most common types:

Torsion Springs

Torsion springs are the most common and efficient type of garage door spring. They’re mounted horizontally above the garage door opening and work by twisting and untwisting to create torque. As the door closes, the springs wind up, storing energy. When you open the door, this energy is released, helping to lift the door. Torsion springs typically last 15,000 to 20,000 cycles.

Extension Springs

Extension springs are older technology but are still widely used, especially in older homes or with lighter garage doors. These springs stretch and contract to open and close the door, working in pairs on either side of the door. They run parallel to the horizontal tracks above the upper tracks of the garage door. Extension springs generally last 10,000 to 15,000 cycles.

Wayne Dalton TorqueMaster System

The Wayne Dalton TorqueMaster System is a proprietary spring system offering unique benefits for garage door operation. In this system, springs are enclosed in a tube above the door, reducing exposure and increasing safety. It uses a winding system that’s easier to adjust than traditional torsion springs and generally requires less maintenance due to its enclosed design. The risk of injury is reduced as the spring is contained within the tube.

Commercial Garage Door Spring Systems

Commercial garage doors often require more robust spring systems due to their size and frequent use. These heavy-duty torsion springs are designed for larger, heavier doors and more frequent cycles. Springs for commercial applications are often custom-made to fit specific door requirements and are typically rated for 25,000 to 100,000 cycles, depending on the application. They’re often made of higher-grade steel to withstand increased stress and usage.

Spring Materials Matter

The material of your garage door springs can significantly impact their performance and longevity. Here are the main types we work with:

  • Galvanized Springs: Resistant to rust and corrosion
  • Oil-Tempered Springs: Offer superior strength and durability
  • Coated Springs: Provide additional protection against environmental factors
