In response to the inherently dangerous old style garage spring issues as above a newer and safer system for opening the overhead garage door was created. The idea was to transfer the load or weight of the door via a cable and pulley system to a vertical rod now equipped with a torsion (twisted) spring. This type of spring is installed with specialty hardware and bolts to a fixed plate at one end while the entire spring is installed around a horizontal pipe. This load balancing device is normally installed directly over the header of the garage opening. Using appropriate cables connectors and pulleys the weight of the garage door is transferred into the torsion spring system. The difference between the old style stretched spring and the newer torsion spring is the way that the spring energy is stored. With the old style stretched spring the energy is stored and released by pulling on the spring or returning the spring to its un-stretched condition.
When you start shopping for your garage door purchase one that isnt too big and bulky. A large garage opener can take up most of your headroom (the available vertical space of yoru garage) and limit your storage space. It also limits what type of vehicle that can enter and be stored in your garage. For instance SUVs will be incredibly hard to park if you have limited vertical space. Roller garage doors are less complicated to operate than sectional garage doors. They also have smaller and easier to handle panels which greatly reduces the risk of accidents.

When you shop around for a new garage gate each manufacturer will vouch that their product is the best. Dont be tempted by catchy advertisements or unrealistic promises. Always keep in mind that your new garage gate should last for at least 10-20 years depending upon the usage rate and maintenance frequency. Steel garage gates are most common. Lower costs ease of maintenance and a variety of available designs make steel garage doors the obvious choice. In general no painting is required though you can have a garage gate painted if you wish. You can also get a variety of designs such as raised panels flush panels and so forth. As most garages share an interior wall of a home insulation inside the garage door can help in cutting down your heating/cooling expenses.
