Due to the extremely high tension of a garage door spring, garage door spring repair should only be done by a professional, as there is danger of personal harm if not done properly.

- If your garage door appears to be crooked, either while resting on the ground or when it is open overhead, it’s time to call for garage door spring repair.

How Garage Door Springs Work

- Torsion springs are generally mounted directly above your garage door at the front of your garage, although they can also be mounted at the rear of the garage if there is not enough room at the front. The torsion spring balances the door so the opener uses the same amount of force to open and close the door.
- Extension springs are generally mounted above the tracks on which your garage door moves, but they may also be mounted vertically on the walls of your garage. These springs use force to pull the door upward as it opens, offsetting the force of gravity.
