Garage door cables are a critical component for your garage door opening and closing properly. A snapped cable could leave you stranded in or out of the garage. When your garage door closes, cables attached force the springs to wind up. When your garage door opens, the springs then unwind helping it to lift up the garage door and making it easier to open. Over time, the steel in the cables can start to weaken as the garage door gradually becomes too heavy for them and the cables will eventually break. We have over 35 years of experience performing garage door cable repair. We service all garage door brands from Chamberlain, Craftsman, LiftMaster and beyond.

A garage door with a broken cable can fall rapidly and may even cause injury or death. The most common danger comes when your cables break and you decide to undertake the repair or replacement yourself. Cables can be very dangerous and you need the exact tools for the job. It is always recommended that you call in a professional, rather than trying to handle a replacement or garage door cable repair. Failure to do so may leave you with injuries.
Below are a few common garage door cable issues:
- Loose or detached cables trigger a safety mechanism that prevents the door from moving.
- The cables may be misaligned if the garage door has an uneven movement upon opening or closing.
- A broken cable can result in the other opener parts bearing the entire weight of the door.
- Cables that are out of track or have too much tension can cause the garage door from closing or opening completely.
