The torsion springs in your garage door uncoil when you open the door or press a button on your remote control. Towards the top of your garage door is a strong beam that makes it possible for the springs to help lift or lower it. Torsion springs return to being tightly coiled when someone closes the garage door. Each tiny spring can withstand hundreds of pounds of pressure bearing down on them. This type of spring is also prone to wear and to sudden failure.
To an untrained eye, all torsion springs may look alike. In reality, each one has slight differences in diameter and length as well as the size of its wires.

At Garage Doors Store Repairs, we evaluate each torsion spring to figure out how many more times you can safely raise and lower your garage door before replacement becomes necessary. The larger the garage door, the more torsion springs it needs to withstand its weight.
