Automated garage doors have been with us for quite some time, dating back to the 1920s. We rely heavily on technology for almost everything, and the garage door is one of the technologies we cannot live without. The convenience and security it offers are unparalleled. The garage door springs are the dominant force behind the lowering and raising of your garage door.

A garage door uses a counterbalance system. This system uses force to counterbalance a weight, i.e., the garage door. There are two types of systems, and both rely on the garage door springs for force.

Extension Spring System
The extension spring system utilizes springs attached to cables. The cables are connected to the door’s corners. The springs are taut when the door closes, and relax when the door opens, the kinetic energy in the rigid springs opening the door. As the door opens and closes, the steel springs weaken and break after a while. You have to check these springs and ensure the safety cable still runs through them. If these springs break, they can cause severe injury or even property damage.

Torsion Spring System
The torsion spring system is the most popular garage door system. Torsion springs are horizontally mounted over the opening of the garage door. As the door descends, cables attached to the door at the bottom-most corners force the springs to wind up, creating kinetic energy. As the door lifts, the springs unravel, releasing the stored energy. With time, the springs weaken and may lose their abilities to lift the door.

When To Call A Technician
You should call a technician immediately if you are facing the following situations:

  • You have missing cables
    A garage door with extension springs should have a safety cable on either side of the door. The cables run throughout the spring and are attached to either the ceiling or the wall. Extension springs work under a lot of tension, and if one breaks, it would result in severe injuries or property damage. The safety cable acts as a control for the broken spring. If your garage door has extension springs, but the safety cables are missing, call a garage door specialist immediately and install new ones.
  • Out of balance springs
    A garage door should open and close smoothly. If it does not work properly, try opening it manually by tugging a cord attached to the arm that connects the rail system to the garage door. If this does not work, the springs are possibly out of balance. To fix this, call a professional immediately.
  • Bracket Springs
    Garage door springs are connected to brackets found at the base of the garage door. These brackets are also under a tremendous amount of tension and should never be adjusted, except by a certified technician. The latest garage doors come with tamper-proof brackets.

If you suspect your garage door springs are faulty, do not hesitate to contact CT Garage Service at 203-514-4717. Our garage door technicians are certified, fully licensed and bonded.

Quick, friendly and professional service. Awesome staff! My experience was great from the first phone call! Cheryl (the office manager) was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable in every phone call. The technicians were respectful, hardworking and friendly. The insulated door that they installed has been keeping my garage more temperature controlled. No more frozen kitchen pipes! Their prices are comparable to others too. Highly recommend CT Garage Service!
