Garage Door Torsion Spring Replacement in Cedar Rapids
It can be stressful when your garage door breaks and you can’t get your car out. The leading break that garage doors usually face are broken torsion springs. Torsion springs are one of the most important parts on your garage door. They account for over 90% of the lift that is needed to raise an garage door and because of this, torsion springs usually only last for about 33,000 cycles. Garage door torsion springs are helical springs that exert a rotary force allowing your garage door to move up and down. Torsion springs are subjected to bending stress rather than torsional stress.
