There Are 3 Types Of Springs
One Peace Door Extension Spring
Standard one-piece door extension springs look very similar to the extension springs on sectional overhead garage doors. One visible difference between these springs, however, is that one-piece springs are shorter than sectional extension springs. Yet at the same time, one-piece springs can have a few of the same types of spring ends.
If your hardware includes horizontal track that supports the top of the door when it opens, you will need to make some careful measurements. Some of these measurements will be most accurate if you use a caliper, while others will require the use of a tape measure. If you do not have the horizontal track, jump down to our section on Holmes One-Piece Springs. Call us now to get a free estimate on garage door spring repair
Garage door extension springs are designed specifically for a garage door height and weight. A 7 ft door will not use the same spring as a 8 ft door. Extension springs operate on a pulley system and are placed above the horizontal track of the garage door. We can help you with any of your garage door extension spring questions.

Garage door torsion springs are secured to a metal shaft above the garage door. Depending on the system, the shaft may pass through the middle of the springs or spring, or the shaft may sometimes house the spring. If the shaft passes through the middle of the torsion spring, the spring may be mounted in the middle of the shaft or on the end of the shaft by the outside edge of the garage door.Call us now to get a free estimate on garage door spring repair.
