The springs on your garage door are responsible for balancing your garage door and distributing the weight when your door goes up and down. Spring repairs are common, because your garage door is heavy and have to work so much. Choosing the right springs for your garage door is important, and will keep you from having to deal with repairs or replacements for a long time. There are two kinds of garage door springs: extension springs, which are located on the upper horizontal tracks of your door, and torsion springs, which are able to stretch or extend using torque, and can support more weight. Kings Garage Doors will help you choose the best garage door springs for you, helping you to evaluate them by factors like cost, strength, door type and your own particular needs.
