What Our Clients Say
Common Garage Door Questions
There are three spring types: torsion, extension, and torquemaster.
Torsion springs are the most modern and common choice for garage doors. Located above the door, they stretch horizontally, winding in and out to operate the door. If you have a broken torsion spring, you will notice a 2-4″ between the coils.
Extension springs are an older model for garage door systems. They are located on either side of the garage door, stretching vertically. To operate your garage door, they stretch and retract. If you have one or more broken extension springs, you’ll notice extra elongation between the spring’s coils.
Torquemaster springs are a specialty spring and not very common. Wayne Dalton creates these springs so they have a special mechanism and installation process. In fact, they are located inside a torque master tube. This makes it more difficult to identify when you have a broken spring. However, you will most likely notice loose or broken cables on either side of the tube if the spring breaks.
There are many reasons your garage door may stop working suddenly. Most commonly if your garage door won’t open, there is an issue with the opener or springs. With the opener, it may malfunction or break. This prevents the opener from automatically opening your door when you press the remote or keypad. When it comes to springs, they may break or loosen suddenly so they can’t carry the door’s weight. If your opener or springs break, you’ll need garage door repair to get your door back in working order.
