Signs You Need Garage Door Cable Repair

Garage door cables play a critical role in the smooth operation of your door. Over time, these cables can become worn, frayed, or even break, leading to serious risks and inconveniences. Some signs that indicate you need garage door cable repair include:

  • Your garage door is off-track or crooked

That’s why it’s crucial to address cable issues promptly by calling a professional repair service like Garage Door Repair Agoura Hills.

Types of Garage Door Cables We Service

At Garage Door Repair Agoura Hills, we have experience working with all types of garage door cables, including:

Torsion Spring Cables

Torsion spring systems are among the most common garage door configurations. These systems rely on tightly wound springs mounted above the garage door opening to counterbalance the door’s weight. The cables in a torsion spring system are responsible for connecting the bottom brackets of the door to the spring shaft, allowing the door to open and close smoothly. If your torsion spring cables are frayed, loose, or broken, our technicians can quickly replace them with high-quality, durable cables designed to withstand the tension and stress of daily use.

Extension Spring Cables

Extension spring systems are another popular choice for residential garage doors. In this configuration, the springs are mounted on either side of the door, stretching and contracting as the door moves. The cables in an extension spring system help to distribute the weight of the door evenly, preventing the springs from overextending and ensuring smooth operation. If your extension spring cables have become stretched, frayed, or detached, our experts can assess the damage and replace them with precision-engineered cables that are built to last.

Safety Cables

Safety cables are an essential component of extension spring garage door systems. These cables run through the center of the springs and are designed to prevent the springs from becoming dangerous projectiles in the event of a sudden break. Without properly functioning safety cables, a broken extension spring can cause serious damage or even injury. Our technicians are experienced in installing, repairing, and replacing safety cables to ensure that your garage door system is as safe as possible.

Lift Cables

Lift cables, also known as garage door opener cables, are responsible for connecting the garage door to the motorized opener unit. These cables work in conjunction with the opener’s chain, belt, or screw drive to lift and lower the door. Over time, lift cables can become worn or frayed, leading to uneven door movement or even complete failure. If you’re experiencing issues with your garage door opener cables, our skilled technicians can diagnose the problem and replace the cables with high-quality, durable alternatives that are designed to work seamlessly with your specific opener model.

No matter what type of cable system your garage door uses, our knowledgeable technicians have the skills and equipment to perform the necessary repairs or replacements.
