Garage Door Cables, Repair
& Replacement Services

Cables Relacement Service in Seattle, WA

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.

Causes of damage

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.

Repairing your garage door cables

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.

Frequently asked questions

Why does garage door cable keep falling?

Cable problems can come from a spring that is stretched incorrectly. If the spring is too tight it can cause the cables to come out of their drum and cause the cables to break.

Can you manually lift a garage door?

In the event of a power outage your garage door will stop working. In such a situation every garage door has an emergency release kit. The system is installed in your garage and allows you to open the garage door manually from the inside or outside.

What happens when garage door cable breaks?

If the cable is broken it will cause an underpass to be transferred to the other cable and in fact it loads on it and this may cause the door to rise unevenly and cause it to be crooked and unbalanced. If your garage door creaks or shakes or malfunctions it means the cable is torn.
