How Do Garage Door Springs Work?

If you own a home, there is a good chance you own a garage door as well. As useful as a garage door can be, it can also be dangerous; this is why the safety features that are built into it are so important. Continue reading for an overview of how garage door springs work.

Your garage door springs are responsible for the smooth raising and lowering of the door itself, so they are certainly worth your attention. Garage door springs use tension to open and close your door, and they do so using both torsion and extension springs. An extension typically comes with a safety cable, which comes in handy in case a spring should break. If your garage door does not open and close as smoothly as it should, consider calling a professional and having your springs checked.
