Broken Garage Door Cable Repair in Maplewood, MN

bent and broken

The Garage Door is one of the things that should work the same way every day; you push the button on the remote control and the Garage Door Opener turns on and the door begins to open. You pull your car in the Garage and push the wall button and the door begins to close. This process happens more often in the day than most people realize and eventually something will break down. With such a large moving piece of equipment there are a lot of different moving parts and many of these things have a lot of strong tension on them. If you go to push the button on your remote and the door starts going up and suddenly something snaps and the door goes crooked you may have just had a Garage Door Cable break.

Broken Cable in Bloomington, MN

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.

Rusty Garage Door Cable Repair in St. Paul MN

Rusty Cable & BracketGetting your Garage Door Serviced regularly is probably the last thing on your mind. However it is very important to have this done at least once every year to ensure safe and proper operation. Recently in St. Paul MN we were out on a standard Garage Door Tune Up & Safety Inspection. While checking the entire door it was quite evident that the cables were very close to snapping. This was caused by the heavy amount of rust located in the corner of the garage door. Our technician was able to replace all the rusted components to ensure the customer did not have a cable snap. By replacing the cable before it breaks you are saving not only your time but money. When a cable breaks the entire door goes crooked and can in some cases come out of the tracks. So replacing it before it breaks you reduce the amount of damage done, as well as time to repair the door.

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.
