Garage Door Cable Repair in Denver, Co

Your garage door cable works together with your garage door spring to open and close the garage door. The garage door opens when the garage door spring applies the appropriate amount of tension on the cables to set it in motion. The cables lift the garage door while the cable wires coil around the drums then when it is time to close the garage door, the cable wires are uncoiled around the drums so that the door can go down and close. The cables are responsible for the upward and downward motion of the door when you open and close your garage door.

Broken Garage Door Springs

When your garage door cables are functioning properly, then you can open and close your garage door properly and smoothly. However, since your garage door cables essentially carry the whole weight of your garage door each time it opens and closes, it is subject to wear and tear. That is why there are instances when the garage door cables malfunction. The cables can become coiled around themselves or sometimes the cable wires get bent. Another instance when the cables do not function properly is when the garage door spring is busted. This causes the cables to loosen up and uncoil from the drum, causing the garage door to close or crash down.

When your garage door springs also have the wrong amount of tension, they can cause your cables to slip off the drum. Too much tension can cause the cable wires to jump off the drum while too little tension can cause the cable wires to uncoil from the drum. When you have the wrong size or dimensions of cables and drums, they are also more likely to break easily. When the cable wire is too small, this will put so much strain on the cable. When the drum is not large enough, it will not be able to accommodate a longer length of cable wire. That is why it is very important to use the right dimensions of cable and drum and to always ensure that your garage door cables are working properly to avoid any problem with your garage doors.

Garage door cables come in different sizes and fittings. There is the open loop, thimble, and spool. There are also raw cables that you can customize according to your own preference. They also come in different widths and lengths. You have to choose one that would best suit your garage door according to its specifications and style of lift. High lift garage doors require longer cables. It would also depend on the kind of spring mechanism that your garage door uses. Garage door cables are available in your local home improvement stores and they can also instruct you on how to install them properly. However, we highly recommend that you let the experts handle the installation and repair of your garage door cables because they have the right tools and skills to do the job properly.
