Garage Door Has a Broken Cable, or is Off Track

doorGarage doors have tracks that guide the door’s movement and these tracks work hand-in-hand with the other components of the garage door, including the cables. If a cable breaks, then the door is not going to move. The same occurs if a cable is too loose – it may not move or, if already up, could crash down. If cables are too tight, the door isn’t going to close all the way.

These cables work on the track and the cables will tighten and loosen accordingly to ensure the door works properly. If anything is off or broken, then the door isn’t going to operate and any attempt to move the door or perform the repair on your own could be dangerous.

At Advanced Garage Door Solutions, Inc., we can perform the repair quickly so that your door is operating like normal as soon as possible.

Professional Garage Door Cable Repair

It is important for garage door cable repair to be done by a professional so it is done safely. It can be tempting to replace or repair the cable on your own, but doing so can be dangerous. If the cable repair or installation is not performed correctly, then the door could malfunction and fall or not move at all. Cable breakage is one of the most common causes of garage door damage.

You can prevent breakage by occasionally looking at the cables to see if there is wear or damage. Also, knowing the average lifespan of cables will tell you when it may be time to replace them. Calling us at the first sign of wear is a great way to prevent breakage.
