How To Buy Garage Door Springs
We're going to discuss how to buy garage door springs for DIY. First, why is it so hard to find garage door springs? It can be a dangerous job if you don't have the proper tools or you don't know what you're doing. Many companies require a strict disclaimer if you purchase (thats us). We're based north of Atlanta in Buford and we sell garage door torsion springs direct to consumers and we have a contractor program.
1) What size garage door spring should you get?
Buying garage door springs can be difficult. You first need to understand the different types of springs and the numbers associated. We're going to discuss torsion springs today. There are three numbers you need to know 1) Wire size (207, 218, 225, 234, 243, 250 are the most popular) 2) Inside diameter (most residential garage door springs are 2" or 1 3/4" 3) length of wire (measure from end of wire to end of wire)
Once you have that we can offer you standard 10k cycles or in some cases provide you with high cycle springs.
Best thing to do is take a picture of the front and inside of the door, get the springs off and bring them in. From this, we can in most cases provide the right spring for your garage door.
