GARAGE DOOR CABLE REPLACEMENT
You went into the garage to drive your personal or commercial vehicle and the garage door cable broke. This situation is such a pain!
This problem will require a manual way to prop the garage door open, so you can safely back the vehicle out of the garage.
Then, you must manually close the door and lock it.
Most garage doors are heavy and cumbersome, and they will slow you down when you're in a hurry.
If the garage door cable is broken, then we want to come out and fix the problem!
Understanding Garage Door Cables
The cable that powers your garage door actually has multiple uses.
A garage door cable consists of strong wire components that are entwined together for maximum strength. Each cable is built to withstand lots of weight. While the garage door cable is primarily used as a lift cable, it is part of a complete door opening system.
The cable is anchored at the bottom corner of the garage door and runs along the edge to connect with a counterbalance spring.
When the cable breaks, the door will not function according to its design. Another possibility is that your garage door has a retaining cable.
For the overhead garage door, this cable effectively curbs the extension spring from falling to the ground or flying through the air inside the parking area when the mechanism breaks.

What Are Common Garage Door Cable Problems?
- Wound around the drum
- Pulleys get worn out
- Cables wear and tear
- Break because of rust
A garage door has extension springs.
When these springs break, increased energy will be put on the door.
This increased energy can cause serious injuries. The force is so strong that it could damage a vehicle.
This is why safety cables are important. If your door has safety cables, the cables will provide protection when the springs break.

We understand that you want all components of your garage door opening system to work as they did when they were originally installed.
The best plan is to schedule a preventive maintenance program, so the door will be professionally inspected and serviced every few years.
When the garage door cable breaks, it becomes expedient to schedule same-day service and protect your door's mechanism. Without a working cable, the door is hard to lift.
You won't have peace of mind that the spring tension provided by the cable will serve to counterbalance the door's considerable weight. Without a working cable, it takes more time to move your vehicles into or out of the garage.
