Garage Door Spring Repair and Replacement Services
Garage door springs are a major part of the functionality of your garage door. They’re also considered to be the most dangerous part of a garage door to replace due to their unpredictability. At D&L, we offer garage door spring repair and replacement services for three different types of springs:
Garage Door Torsion Spring
Torsion springs are the most popular type of garage door spring and are generally recommended as the best option by most garage door repair companies. We recommend them over extension springs simply because they last longer and are much safer than extension springs.
A garage door torsion spring does not fully extend in the same way that an extension spring does, instead bending and stretching while the garage door opens. The major difference here is that there is not near as much tension involved with a garage door torsion spring and therefore they’re also much safer. While torsion springs are considered to be safer, it is still highly recommended that customers never try to tamper with or change their springs by themselves.
Garage Door Extension Spring
A garage door extension spring provides much more tension than a torsion spring does while the garage door is in motion. They’re made in a way where they will continually expand as the door is opening. This major tension makes them extremely dangerous to deal with when they begin to break apart or become faulty.
The one major perk of a garage door extension spring over a garage door torsion spring is that the extension springs are generally a great deal cheaper than their counterpart. The initial costs, however, are generally taken away by the fact that extension springs last about three years less than most quality torsion springs.

Garage Door Spring Safety Issues
Springs are the most dangerous part of the garage door due to their unpredictability when tension rises within them. If they’re not properly installed or are beginning to break, the possibility is always there that they may snap off of the garage door. At this point, they become extremely dangerous and can pose a major threat to anyone and anything in their path.
No matter what type of spring or TorqueMaster garage door system you’re having repaired or installed, we highly recommend that you hire a professional garage door repair company to handle the repair or installation. There are simply too many things that can go wrong during the process and it is not worth the risk for any untrained professional. We can not state enough how important it is for customers to avoid tampering with or replacing their garage door spring without the proper knowledge of the process.
One of the things that all customers can do in order to keep their springs running efficiently as long as possible is to provide consistent maintenance on them. Lubricating them and providing adjustments when necessary can help extend their shelf life and also help to ensure that they’re safe to continue use.
As we mentioned before, however, we recommend that you only do this when you’re well versed on exactly how it should be done.
