blog pic 1The Garage Door is often times considered a luxury of life that not many of us are really thinking about, of course, until the Garage Door breaks down. There are many different problems that can occur with the Garage Door but one of the more difficult repairs is when a broken cable happens to your Garage Door. This often times will happen when the door is opening or closing and because of the weight of the door being supported by the Torsion Springs the door will end up going crooked and jamming completely. In Bloomington, MN we were out servicing a customer for some new bottom seal and new precision bearing rollers but while we were inspecting the entire Garage Door we found that their cable was down to only a few steel threads and was about to snap at any moment. We were able to replace their cables before they broke which can cause even more damage and costs.

Don’t Wait Until it Breaks

It is always a good recommendation to have your Garage Door inspected at least once per year for any damages, safety concerns, or just a good old fashioned tune-up. Especially living in Bloomington, MN or any other area of Minnesota we know the harsh conditions we can go through with the weather; the hot humid summers and the brittle cold winters can really take a toll on your Garage Door and your cables. If a Broken Cable occurs with your Garage Door it can cause a lot more problems than just the repair and replacement of your Broken Cables which is why we always say don’t wait until it breaks and get your Garage Door inspected yearly.

Other Problems a Broken Cable Can Cause

When a Garage Door Cable snaps there are many other concerns that need to be looked at and possibly repaired, here are a few of those concerns:

  • Crooked Door Causing Bent Panels
  • Bending and Twisting of the Track System
  • Roller Heads Popping Off
  • Broken Bottom Brackets
  • Broken Hinges
  • Bending or Breaking of the Rail
  • The Entire Door Falling out of the tracks and possibly damaging vehicles inside the Garage
  • The Door Could Fold in on Itself

These are just some of the concerns that can happen and when this does happen it can end up being very costly. If you have your Garage Door properly maintained you can often times avoid these kinds of emergencies. Check out our customer reviews just to see what kind of service you are guaranteed to receive. Get your peace of mind and always have the experts at Garage Door Repair Company inspect and maintain your Cables and any other Garage Door concerns in Bloomington, MN and the entire Twin Cities area.

Navigating COVID-19

We are still open as an essential business

To our valued customers,

As we continue to learn more about COVID-19 and as other businesses start to re-open, our team at Garage Door Repair Company would like to express our concern for all those who have been affected. Our employees and our customers are our top priority , and we are doing everything we can to ensure the health and safety of each.

We have been closely monitoring the situation since it began and fully support all precautions being taken to prevent any further spread of the virus. Garage Door Repair Company has remained open and in full operation as we understand how important it may be to your daily lives to have a fully functional Garage Door. However, in response to this public health emergency, we’ve implemented a few changes to our policies to help prevent the spread:

  • Our technicians will practice social distancing rather than shaking hands at the door.
  • Estimates and repair recommendations can be done remotely or over the phone while our customers stay inside or quarantined.
  • Preferably all payments will be made by credit card rather than by check.
  • We will continue to clean up after ourselves, wash our hands, and use hand sanitizer often.

The nature of our industry allows us a lot of flexibility in these times as most of our technicians are working in one to two man crews which is well under the guidelines that have been laid out before us. We even have the ability to complete all work without any face to face interactions and take payments over the phone.

We thank you for working with us as we navigate this situation.
