Are Garage Door Cables Dangerous?
As most people know Garage Door Repair is not typically a DIY project. This is most certainly the case when it comes to Garage Door Cables. The cables are constantly under immense tension from the Torsion Spring System. With hundreds of pounds of torque, serious injury or even death can occur without the proper tools, and training. When a cable breaks the garage door often times goes crooked, we recommend you do not try to run the Garage Door Opener. This will only cause further damage to the door or opener which in turn will up your repair costs. Here are the most common reasons for a cable to break:
- Rust or Corrosion: Rust is the number one reason why cables break, slowly but surely rust will eat away the threads of the cables until they can no longer support the weight of the garage door.
- Fraying: Cables can also fray, this is less common but still happens quite regularly. It is important to check cables often.
- Broken Spring: A broken spring can also lead to a broken cable, when a spring breaks the weight of the garage door is often increased which causes more weight to rest on the cables.
Whatever the cause don’t let a broken cable ruin your day, be sure to call the experts at Garage Door Repair Company. We always offer Same Day Service, and our trucks come fully stocked to handle any problem you may have. To schedule simply fill out our online appointment form or call 612-886-9606.

When running a business anyway you can reduce cost is always a plus. Recently in Hudson Wisconsin we had a company who was having issues with cold air flow coming into the shop. This was increasing their heating bill; the problem was traced back to the garage door. The outside weather seal had ripped away from one side of the garage door as well as the bottom seal was completely worn out. After noticing a spike in their heating expenses they decided it was time to get the problem resolved immediately. After setting up a same day Garage Door Repair, we were able to get both the side and bottom weather seals replaced, forming a nice tight seal with no air flow. The company was extremely happy that this problem was resolved within 24 hours of the repair request.
