The 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.
Often times our customers will inquire about purchasing a brand new Garage Door and price will be a huge talking point when we are giving out quotes. However a cheaper price does not always mean a good quality product. For example some of the larger corporate hardware stores will have Garage Doors for sale at a very cheap price and it seems like this is the route to go. However down the road when a Torsion Spring breaks or a Cable snaps, customers that have purchased these cheaper doors find out that the spring system that was installed, such as an easy-wind or torque-master system, cannot be repaired and that is when they must have a standard Torsion Conversion done.

When something around the home breaks it’s typically more cost effective to repair it VS replace it. The same can be said for garage doors, however in some cases a door can be so damaged that the only repair is full replacement. This was most recently the case for one of our Twin Cities, MN customers. Initially the customer called for a Garage Door Repair, but once our technician arrived it was very clear the door could not be repaired. After explaining the situation to the homeowner we were able to schedule a time to replace the door. After special ordering the sizes/style door, our customer couldn’t be happier with the finished product.
