Torsion Springs and Extension Springs
There are two main types of garage door springs: torsion springs and extension springs. Torsion springs are mounted directly above the door and help it stay balanced, while extension springs are mounted above the door track and help pull the door upward against gravity. The average spring's lifespan is seven to nine years, but with increased use, the spring's lifespan can be much shorter.
Signs of Broken Springs
Various signs can indicate a broken garage door spring:
- Broken garage door cables
- A sudden loud crash coming from the garage
- The top section of your garage door is bent
- The garage door falls faster than usual when descending
- The garage door is jerky when going up and down
