What the garage door spring does
A garage door spring uses tension to help to balance and support the weight of the door as it opens or closes. It also prevents the door from closing unexpectedly, making it an important safety feature.
There are two types of garage door springs:
- Extension springs: extend and contract during the movement of the door. These types of springs tend to be less expensive and have a shorter lifespan.
- Torsion springs: a more advanced type of spring that turns, which creates smoother door motion. They may cost more initially, but have a long lifespan and are typically easier to maintain.
The spring in your garage door can only lift so much for so long before it’ll start to wear and need replacement.

When a garage door spring isn’t working properly, you might notice:
- The spring itself looks broken or stretched out
- Your garage door appears unbalanced or uneven as it opens or closes
- You notice loud squeaking when the door is in motion
