If you notice that your garage door is experiencing movement issues such as jumping up and down or getting stuck on the track, it’s possible the spring in your garage door needs replacing. If you notice your garage door malfunctioning, it’s best to contact a professional to assist you with the garage door repair.
However, there are two main types of garage door springs and you need to identify which one you need before you try to get it fixed. There are standard torsion springs and high cycle springs. Standard springs vary in length, diameter and width and are very reliable. Standard springs are used in most standard garage doors. They are typically inexpensive unless they are designed for a specialty door. High cycle springs cost a little more than standard, but you can get more use out of them. However, some older model garage doors aren’t able to use high cycle springs so make sure you check with a professional to see if they’ll be compatible before you purchase them.
