If someone asked you what part of the garage door mechanism lifts and closes the door, what would you say? If you’re like most people you’d say the opener opens and closes the door. And that would be a perfectly understandable and reasonable answer. It would also be technically incorrect. You see, the opener is actually more of a starter and regulator than it is an opener. It provides the little jolt of energy required to get the door moving and then regulates that movement to ensure it is smooth and effective. So if the opener isn’t actually opening the door, then what is? The answer, as any garage door service in Northglenn will tell you, is the garage door springs.
