Garage Door Cable Issues

There are several reasons why your garage door cable has issues. First and foremost, old cables. Over time, rust starts to build on the metal cables, which causes them to break.

If you have broken garage door cables, there are ways you can tell. Your garage door may start to shake during operation, resulting from a misalignment of the door. The lift system may also make loud noises when the door opens and closes.

Keep in mind cable replacement requires extensive knowledge, professional experience, and the right tools for the job. King Garage Door Repair has you covered. We use certified technicians with years of training. If your cable has any issues, we work to solve the problems.

Types of Cables and Uses

Each garage door uses different types of cables, depending on the situation. There are two in particular – lift and retaining cables. Each of them has other functions.

Lift Cables

A lift cable is what opens the garage door for you. These cables connect the spring system to the garage door. Broken lift cables are easy to spot since it causes the door to move out of place. We can replace these types of cables with a brand new one if they snapped, or repair the one you have if they just got tangled.

Retaining Cable

If you have an extension spring system, you must have retaining cables for your own safety. These cables work as a safety mechanism that prevents the extension springs from scattering if they break.
