A garage door spring replacement or just a repair? How do you know if it’s a simple fix or time to install new springs? This depends on the type of spring system your garage uses. The most popular types of springs found in Austin area homes are Torsion and Extension Springs. The lifespan of a spring is 7-9 years. When using garages as a front door to go in and out of your house lifespan is 4-6 years. Also, remember during chilly weather that a cold snap could mean old springs snap!
Torsion Springs are above the door and they are the springs that slide on a bar. On the other hand, Extension Springs are at the side of the door. It’s vital to make sure that the garage door company you use handles both types of springs. Our team of experts has decades of know-how when it comes to repairing and replacing Torsion and Extension springs.
