Garage Door Torsion Springs

Almost all residential garage doors use torsion springs.  Torsion springs are used as a counter balance to make your garage door easy to open and close.  It is critical to not only have working torsion springs but the correct ones for your door.  If the torsion springs are not functioning properly this can cause damage to your door, opener and you.  The two most common ways to get the correct springs are to either measure your current springs or weigh your garage door.  Below are links on how to do both and which way is best for you.
