Garage Door Cables Replacement Pricing
What Are Garage Door Cables
Garage door cables Lift The Garage Door From The Bottom Fixture Using Energy Provided From The Spring System. Loaded Torsion Springs or Fully Wound Torsion Springs transfer Energy Through the Torsion Tube To The Torsion Cable Drums. Cables Spool Around the Torsion Drum and Connect To The Bottom Fixture in Order To Lift The Door. Unlike a Broken Garage Door Spring That Breaks Suddenly and ONLY When the Garage door is Down, Garage Door Cables will Usually give some warning before Complete Failure. We Recommend Replacing Garage Door Cables When First Signs Of Fatigue Are Visible. Here Are The Conditions That Would Initiate a Recommendation For Garage Door Cable Replacement:
Reasons for Garage Door Cable Replacement
Old Fatigued Garage Door Cables: Normal Garage Door Cable Wear and Tear
- Roping Garage Cable– First sign of fatigue. Caused By Stretching the Cable by The Torsion Drum and Weight OF The Garage Door.
- Looping Garage Door Cable – Second Sign Of Cable Fatigue. Caused By Excessive “Roping”. Basically Loose Loops Open Up On The Cable. This Looping Separates the Individual Cable Fibers and Increases The Risk Of Fraying.
- Fraying Garage Door Cable – Third Sign Of Cable Fatigue. Roping leads to Looping leads to Fraying. Visible Breaks in The Individual Fibers That Make Up A Garage Door Cable. From Here Garage Door Cable Replacement Is Strongly Recommended Even When It May Be The Only Problem Present.
Damaged Garage Door Cables: Damage Caused Outside Of Regular Use
- Kinks in Garage Door Cable – This Is Usually Caused When The Garage Door Cable Has Not Spooled On the Drum Correctly or A Garage door Off Track Condition. If The Cable Is Kinked then We Recommend Garage Door Cable Replacement To Prevent Fraying Or Potentially Future Spooling Problems.
- Fraying That Comes From Drum– The Drum Can Start to Lose its Cable Spooling Grooves. When These Flatten Out The Cable Will Rub on Itself and Cut The Fibers. Drums Can Form Burrs that Cut The Cable, and Drums Can Be Worn Down By the Cable Forming Sharp Edges that Can Cut the Cable Fibers.
- Cut Cable – DON’T. Do Not EVER Cut The Torsion Cable.
- Tangled Cable – This Can For Kinks
