Garage Door Springs Santa Ana

Contact Orange County Local Garage Doors and Gates for reliable service to your garage door springs. While a garage door system is made of many intricate and valuable parts, the springs are by far considered the most important element. They handle your garage door’s ability to open and close properly, along with managing weight distribution and balance. Without properly working springs, the rest of the garage door is left in a compromised position.

In Santa Ana, where the property crime rate is higher than nearly 60% of other cities and towns in the state of California, having a garage door fail due to broken or damaged springs is a problem that one simply cannot afford to allow to be unaddressed.

Types of Garage Door Springs

There are two main types of garage door springs: Torsion springs and extension springs. Learn their differences, as well as the pros and cons for each, to help you decide which type of spring is right for your garage door.

  • Torsion Springs – Torsion springs are the more commonly used springs for garage doors these days. As homes get bigger, garage doors follow suit. The bigger the garage door, the greater the weight, and for this reason, torsion springs are the more reliable style of spring, as they can lift up to 500 lbs. Torsion springs also have a far longer lifespan than extension springs.
  • Extension Springs – Extension springs are typically installed in situations where torsion springs cannot, such as low headroom problems. Should an extension spring break, the door may be lifted from the opposite side, thanks to safety cables that keep the door from falling if a break does in fact happen. With a torsion spring, the door cannot be opened and should not be attempted due to the extreme weight that comes with a break.

Consult a garage door professional who can examine you system to find out which type of garage door spring is right for you.
