Understanding your garage door springs.
Springs play a significant role in determining how a garage door operates. That is why a broken spring will not only cause you inconvenience. It is among the most common problems associated with modern-day garage doors, not only in Los Angeles.
Most of you will agree that repairing a broken spring is not a straightforward task that can always be achieved easily.
You need the expertise and an understanding of how the spring works before unscrewing even the smallest bolt. Springs are considered the backbone of most garage doors, and without an accurately working spring, your garage door will not open and close.
There are two kinds of springs that come with these accessories. The extension springs and the torsion springs. The type of garage door usually characterizes the type of spring in use. If at all one is broken, the entire system will grind to a halt.
What might be the cause of this misfortune?
Many reasons can cause your garage door springs to break. After years of service, the continuous wear and tear can cause your doors’ spring to break. The second factor is rust.

The third reason is when your garage door is off balance. Although it is hard to tell if the door is off-balance, we at ZAAAP have the necessary skills and tools that can get the job done.
