One of the most common garage door problems homeowners will face is the broken garage door spring. If your garage door won’t open, check your springs. Did you know there are two different types of springs?

Torsion springs are located on the front wall of the garage above the door near the ceiling. You can see them when the door is closed.

Side mounted springs are long heavy springs mounted on each side of the upper garage door track.

If you’re home to hear the springs break, you’ll know it! They’ll make a violent, very loud noise. Although you might think you can replace them yourself, it’s dangerous if you aren’t skilled in removing the old springs and installing new ones. Because you could be seriously injured, it’s best to leave them to a local professional garage door repair company in Eden Prairie area to get the job done.

Always replace both of your springs on a two-car door, even if only one appears broken. It’s industry’s best practices to do so because when one spring breaks, the other spring will break not long after. Plus, if you use a new spring with an old spring it can cause your door to be imbalanced. That’s not good.
