Your Garage Door Springs are tightly wound to support the weight of your entire garage door and are under high tension, and you should never try to replace or repair them yourself without the proper tools. Springs usually come in three types: Extension, Torsion, and Torquemaster.

These types are a popular choice when installing a new door or converting your old and worn Extension Spring System as they are quieter and usually only require one spring above the door instead of two. Most manufacturers make torsion springs that have a lifespan of about 30,000 cycles or 5-8 years. These types of springs work in a twisting or torque, motion to lift the door. That reduces tension on the spring while increasing operational efficiency. Torsion springs come in many sizes, so give us a call to schedule an appointment. We can usually replace or install the same spring day.
Wayne Dalton’s TorqueMaster Springs are the last type of springs. These springs are found in older applications and are an essentially smaller version of the torsion spring but are housed inside a metal cylinder for easy tuning. However, this system is pretty outdated, and these springs don’t last very long, are hard to maintain, and can cause serious injury if improperly tuned. We are experts at Converting Your Old Torquemaster system to a Torsion or Extension Spring System on the spot.
