If you are like me, your garage is much more than a place to park your vehicles. I use my garage to keep shoes, luggage, store seasonal stuff that I do not need year-round, and for other unused/old stuff from around the house. Needless to say, if there was a problem with my garage door, it would be a big problem for me even for a day. Even if you do not use your garage as much as me, you still need to have a properly functioning garage door because it likely leads to your home and is important for the safety and security of your home. In this article, we are going to take a look at three of the most important parts of your garage door that are important for its proper function.

Torsion Springs

Screen Shot 2015-01-14 at 3.55.51 PMYour garage door is a very heavy piece of equipment. Raising it up and down manually is next to impossible. 90 percent of the lift that is needed to raise your garage door comes from the torsion springs. This should give you a clear idea of why torsion springs are the number one essential part on this list. These springs allow your garage door to move up or down and also remain suspended at certain heights multiple times a day as you leave and come back home. Because of all this strain, torsion springs typically only last for about 33,000 cycles.

Generally, these springs can be found on two bars above the garage door. In case these springs break or get damaged, the best option is to call a reliable and experienced garage door repair company such as Garage Door Pros in Hollywood, Florida. Having been in the industry since 2012, and gaining more and more recognition for our exceptional service, we will quickly repair or replace the torsion springs or any other part of your garage door that you may be having trouble with.


Often called the photo eye, this important garage door part is an essential safety feature of your garage door. There are two small photo eyes located on either side of the garage door about six inches from the garage door floor, that transmit an invisible beam between each other to detect if there is anything in the garage door’s path that can prevent it from closing. So if there happens to be a vehicle, a person, a pet, or another object, the photo eyes will sense the obstruction and prevent the garage door from closing on it and potentially prevent injuries or damage. You need to make sure that the photo eyes are not misaligned and are clean so that they function well and provide safety. For any required repairs, just call Garage Door Pros.

Garage door tracks house and guide the rollers that allow for the smooth travel of your garage door. Each set of garage door tracks is set for a particular garage door only. If your garage door comes off its tracks, it can be extremely dangerous. This can happen due to several reasons such as the door being hit with a vehicle, the tracks not being aligned properly, or the rollers breaking due to wear and tear.

Your garage door weighs several hundred pounds, and having it fall off its tracks and cause serious damage and/or injury. If you ever face such a situation, it is best to not even attempt to fix, lift, or move your garage door or any of its parts. This job is best left for experienced professionals such as our team at Garage Door Pros. Before you know it, our Hollywood garage door repair service will have your door repaired or replaced expertly.
