Garage door springs are one of the main components in all garage door systems. Garage doors are able to operate due to a counterbalance system that usually involves one or two torsion springs. Generally, torsion springs are positioned horizontally over the door opening. As the door closes, the cables add tension to the springs, and as the door opens that tension is released. The opening of the door causes the springs to unwind in conjunction with the weight coming off the door.
As the cycle count rises over time, the steel in the springs will become weak and will no longer be able to create energy to lift your garage door–this is when you call us at CMGD!
