A galvanized torsion spring won’t rust, but the wire is cold drawn when the spring is manufactured, which can cause the torsion spring to lose its tension rather quickly. In fact, we have noticed that garage doors installed in Alden IA zipcode(s): 50006 in HARDIN county with galvanized torsion springs were extremely heavy to lift just one year later.

This will get you by for a littler longer, but can create other problems just as quickly and in turn prematurely wear other components.
Your Alden Iowa torsion spring should have a specific number of turns based on the door height, drum size and track radius. When you have to add turns after only one year, the door may balance when it’s one or two feet off the floor.When the door is raised more than halfway, it will be extremely “hot”, which means it will go up on its own. This puts a lot of strain on your garage door opener and panel. Buying quality garage door hardware counts.

Oil-tempered garage door torsion springs lose their tension much more slowly than galvanized torsion springs. When oil-tempered springs are made, the wire is hot drawn and reheated to remove stress after it’s formed.
Oil-tempered torsion springs can rust, but you can prevent this by using a process called Egyptian coating. The torsion spring is dipped in a black liquid and placed in an oven to bake the liquid to the torsion spring. This creates an anti-corrosive coating that prevents rust, provides cleaner handling of the spring, and allows your garage door to open and close more quietly as the torsion spring winds and unwinds.
This coating doesn’t get between the coils where they touch, so it’s a good idea to use 3-and-1 oil or motor oil after the spring is wound. These types of oil don’t evaporate over time. You’ll probably only have to use it once or twice during the life of the spring. See more tips about Cable Drums Ludlow Missouri.
