Signs You Need Garage Door Cable Repair

Your garage door’s smooth operation hinges on several crucial components, with cables playing a pivotal role. However, these components can become wearied or damaged over time, posing significant safety hazards. Recognizing the early signs of wear or damage is key to preventing accidents and ensuring the longevity of your garage door.

  • Torsion and Extension Spring Malfunctions: Cables work in tandem with torsion springs and extension springs. A broken cable or a faulty bearing can cause undue stress on these springs, leading to potential failures.
  • Visible Signs of Wear: Look for frayed cables, signs of rust, or cables that have slipped off their drum.
  • Door Misalignment: A door that hangs unevenly or does not close properly could be suffering from cable issues.
  • Difficulty in Operation: If your garage door opener struggles to open or close the door, it might be due to worn-out cables.

Understanding these signs and seeking prompt repair services can prevent further damage and ensure the safety of your garage door system.

The Issue and Solution

Garage door cables are vital for the safe and efficient operation of your garage door. They bear the weight of the door as it moves, working closely with torsion springs and extension springs to balance the door’s weight. A broken cable can lead to a non-functional or unsafe garage door, posing risks of injury or damage.

At GDRCA Garage Door Repair and Gate, we utilize only the highest quality cables and correct tools for cable replacements, including safety cables, torsion cables, and extension spring cables. Our garage door technicians are proficient in handling both torsion spring cables and extension spring repairs, ensuring a smooth operation post-repair.

The Repair Process

 Critical steps to ensure the safety and functionality of your garage door:

  1. Inspection: A thorough examination to identify the exact issue with the garage door cables.
  2. Preparation: Utilizing safety glasses and other protective gear to prevent safety hazards.
  3. Replacement: Carefully remove faulty bearings, broken cables, or worn-out parts and replace them with high-quality components.
  4. Testing: Ensuring the garage door’s smooth operation through rigorous testing post-repair.

Types of Garage Door Cables

Different types of garage door cables are essential for identifying and addressing issues effectively:

  • Torsion Cables: Work with torsion springs to lift the door smoothly.
  • Extension Spring Cables: Part of the extension spring system, providing balance and support.
  • Safety Cables: Prevent springs from causing injury or damage if they break.

Customer Reviews

Great Garage Door Service!

My garage door spring broke Friday around 11am. By 2pm the door was fixed. They could have put me off until Monday but was able squeeze me in. Fast but thorough going above and beyond fixing more then the broken spring. Highly recommend.

– Rick D. (

Exceptional service.

Another company told us we needed an entirely new unit – Chief garage door company not only fixed our problems but did at 1/5 of what the other wanted to charge. There’s a reason why this company is ranked so high. Extremely knowledgeable, honest and professional.

– Betty J. (Bing Maps Review)

Excellent work, excellent service.

Mark came out to perform a main visit on my garage doors, when he got there he said they were in good shape so it was going to cost less then the original agreed upon price. My garage doors are now smoother and quieter while costing me less money then I had planned on.
