Garage Door Cable Repairs
We STRONGLY advise our customers NOT to attempt replacing a broken garage door cable without the proper skills and training. This is a very dangerous process and should be performed by skilled professionals only. Garage door cables are under extreme tension and can cause severe injury or even death.
Garage door cables are an important part of your garage door system. Typically, they attach to the bottom section of the garage door to the drums located just above the door on either side. The cables help hold the weight of the door while the springs assist in lifting and lowering the garage door. When a cable snaps or breaks, the door may become inoperable and should not be used. Continuing to use the door with a broken cable can cause additional damage to your entire garage door system.
In some cases, the cables may not break, but instead come off of the drum or bottom section. In this case, we still advise our customers to not use the door until the cables have been reattached to the door properly by a trained professional to avoid further damage. This is a common issue when your garage door spring breaks. When a spring breaks, tension is lost in the cables and they could come off of the drum.
