What’s the difference between torsion springs and extension springs?

Both types of springs use tension and stored energy to help balance the garage door and enable safe and smooth door operation. Extension springs expand and contract while torsion springs wind around a metal shaft.

Extension springs are less expensive and last 7-12 years, while torsion springs are more durable and last 8-15 years. Have questions about which garage door springs are best for you? Ask our team!

Only one of my springs broke. Should I replace both springs or only one?

In our experience, if one of your garage door springs is rusted, stretched out, or broken, its partner is most likely not in good shape either. It’s best to replace both garage door springs at once to save time and money. This will also ensure the new garage door spring isn’t overcompensating for the old spring that can’t pull its weight!
