Like most things, the springs on your garage will eventually wear out meaning you’ll need to hire someone for a garage door spring repair or to replace them altogether. At A1 Overhead Door Services, we will take a look at the springs and determine exactly what the issue is and discuss the best course of action with you. Commonly there are two types of springs used in a garage door install. Extension springs are usually located above the upper horizontal tracks on either side of the door. This type of spring uses counterbalancing force to support the door by expanding.
The other common type is a torsion spring which uses torque to raise the door. A torsion spring will slowly twist and coil on the shaft when force is used. It also comes in a number of wire sizes and lengths which are fitted based off of your garage door’s specific dimensions, including weight and height.

A pretty obvious sign you might need a company providing overhead garage door services is if the cable holding your door has snapped in two. A broken cable will need to be replaced and should always be done by a trained professional who can do it safely and efficiently.
When a garage door cable breaks it can leave the door hanging mid-air, causing the other side to bear more weight. This quickly becomes a very dangerous situation where the door could come crashing down on you or your vehicle.
Not every garage cable issue requires a full replacement. Sometimes the cable has just slipped off the drum or hasn’t been maintained properly, resulting in weak or damaged cables. Whatever the case may be, it’s always best to bring in trained technicians who can assess the situation and quickly make any repairs needed.
