Many garage doors incorporate cables as part of their action mechanism. A common type that we install regularly are up and over doors, which have an automatic opening mechanism. These doors are generally high-quality and long lasting; built very much to fit their purpose and function effectively. Their mechanism involves cables, which function together with the door springs to take the doors’ weight during opening and closing. Thus, the cables are an integral part of the door. Standard garage door cables are coated, metal wires, which connect to a plastic cone at one end of the door spring.
Although up and over garage doors are very efficient; the cables can become damaged from time to time. The most common type of damage is a snapped cable, which may simply occur naturally overtime due to general wear and tear. Regular door maintenance is always advised to help protect its parts and prolong its lifetime. However, the metal cables are susceptible to rusting in moist environments. Additionally, if your door becomes misaligned, which should be noticeable by its ease of function and general appearance, the cables may be put under additional pressure, thus likely resulting in cable snapping if not quickly addressed.
The repair of damages cables will likely be simpler the sooner you contact us. In the best-case scenario, only the broken cable itself will need replacing – and this is a straightforward and quick job for our well-trained professionals. Alternatively, if the damage is more significant, for example if the door was used after the cable broke, it might be necessary for the entire mechanism unit to be replaced – e.g. the cables, springs and cones. This is a bigger job, hence contacting us as soon as possible is vital.
