Garage doors have many moving parts, including the cables. The cables are very important because they are what keep a garage door from slamming shut on you or your vehicle in the instance a spring breaks or fails. While the cable itself is not an expensive part and that in itself cam make it tempting to replace the cable on your own, the job can be more complicated and dangerous than it looks.

We understand that you can’t wait on a garage door repair, so we respond as soon as possible with the best materials, the right equipment, and the experience that the job calls for. We give you everything and more that you would expect from a quality Minneapolis and St. Paul garage door company.
How To Tell Your Cable Is Bad
You can tell that a cable is going bad when it starts to fray or braid. You may even notice that one side of the garage door is a little higher than the other. The side that is lower is the one that has the bad cable. When we come to replace one cable, we will recommend that both cables are replaced so that they wear equally.
When the repair is done correctly, the garage door will function like it did the day it was and you will have new cables that will last for years. We may also go ahead and tighten up hinges and lubricate moving parts to ensure that everything is functioning beautifully.
Professional And Safe Installation
Because the cable repair or replacement process is highly involved, it is best to have the issue professionally rectified. One of the main reasons is safety. Garage doors are heavy and there is room for injury. Garage doors are what we do, so we know what safety measures need to be put in place.
There is also the fact that you have to make sure tension is equal on both sides and that can be the difficult part. If the cable tension is uneven, then the door won’t open correctly and that can be problematic. We will ensure the tension is equal so that the door operation is smooth.
