Broken Garage Door Cables

Garage Door Cable Replacement in Greenville

All garage doors rely on heavy-duty springs to operate. These springs – both torsion springs and extension springs – rely on cables to help move your garage door smoothly.

On extension spring systems there are two cables, one on each side of your door, that distribute tension to keep your door balanced. If one cable breaks, the other will soon follow.

Are Your Garage Door Cables Broken?

Broken cables impact your entire garage door system. A broken cable means the weight is unevenly distributed, which puts strain on your springs, tracks, rollers, and other components.

Most homeowners notice a problem when their garage door cables snap or come off their drums. Aside from visually seeing a broken cable, you may notice your door is louder, off-balance, and has difficulty opening.

Not sure your cables are the problem? No worries – we always perform a full 21-point inspection to pinpoint the issue before servicing your door.

Longer-Lasting Cables

Cables are used to hold spring tensions that balance the weight of a garage door, which in turn makes it possible to lift the garage door manually or via a garage door opener with ease.

Precision Garage Door stocks quality cables and our technicians are trained to evaluate and fix your broken garage door cables.

We Use

More flexible and quieter stainless steel aircraft grade cables with 19 wires per strand, which last longer than standard cables.

They Use
