What You Should Know About Garage Door Cable Repair and Replacement

Danger: Do Not Repair Broken Cables Yourself

A broken cable is an urgent problem that could quickly lead to a full-system failure or lead to injuries and damage. Don’t wait to repair or replace your broken garage door cable. If you notice poor performance or see a broken, worn, rusted or frayed cable, contact Precision immediately. Continuing to operate the garage door with a broken cable is unsafe and can put you and your family in jeopardy. And definitely don’t attempt to do repairs yourself – over 20,000 injuries occur each year from people who aren’t qualified attempting to repair their own garage door. Stay safe and rely on a professional to fix it right the first time.

What Do Cables Do?

Garage door cable is similar to what’s often called “aircraft cable.” It’s made of many strands of stainless-steel wire that is twisted together but remains pliable. Stainless-steel lasts longer than galvanized wire and does not transfer rust. It’s primarily used as lift cables, which help raise and lower the door. It’s also often used as a safety cable and goes inside the extension spring to prevent it from shooting across the garage and causing damage or injury.

Is it Time to Replace the Cables?

Think of how many times your garage door opens and closes each week. Over time, all that up and down motion will wear on the cables, and they’re an integral part of your garage door system. How do you know when it’s time to replace them? Our experts have put together some telltale signs to watch for:

See visible issues? If you do a visual inspection of the cables and see visible signs of rust, corrosion, fraying or excess wear, that’s a sign that you should get your cable replaced before it fails. Another telltale sign is the spiral effect, where a strand looks like it has “bumped out” from the group.

Notice slack when the door is open? When the door is in the open position, the cables should stay tight between the drum and the bottom of the door. If there is any slack on one or both cables, it could mean that the cables have stretched or that the spring is wearing.

Garage door won’t open? If you press the button on your garage door opener and it doesn’t open, it could be a number of things, but it may be a sign that your cable has broken.

Door making loud noises? A certain level of noise is to be expected when you open and close your garage door. But a sudden increase in noise could be an indication that a cable is broken or not working properly. Remember, if you see a broken cable, contact professionals to replace it. If it’s not done properly, it could be dangerous.

Why Choose Precision for Garage Door Cable Replacements?

There are many reasons to have Precision handle the replacement of your cable:

  • We use only stainless-steel cable, which lasts longer than galvanized wire and does not transfer rust.
  • Our highly trained technicians are available 24/7 so we can act quickly and keep a potentially dangerous cable situation from causing any harm. Our quick repairs ensure your peace of mind and your family’s safety.
  • Because garage doors come in all weights and sizes, we install the right cable for your door to ensure proper balance and operation. 
  • To maintain a safe environment for our customers, we provide a free condition report to make sure all the hardware and moving parts on your door are in good working condition and meet safety standards. Since the hardware was probably installed at the same time as the cables, it’s possible there are worn mechanical parts on your door that are in an unsafe state. We think of cable failure as a symptom to a possibly larger problem with your door.
