Garage Door Cable Repair & Replacement In Vancouver, WA & Portland, OR

Your garage door cables are another important component that helps your garage door operate smoothly.

Your garage door cables act in concert with the torsion springs. You’ll find the cables in cable drums at both ends of the bar on which the springs reside. The cables run from the roller brackets on the bottom corners of the door to the cable drums.


When you raise your garage door, the garage door springs unwind and the energy (tension) that is stored helps to lift the door. At this time the cables wrap around the cable drum. When you lower the door, these cables unwind from the drum and rewind the springs to their full tension.

Your garage door cables are made out of metal and designed to be strong and flexible, but they are still not resistant to breaking or snapping due to rear and tear. Like all garage door moving parts, they need to be addressed and inspected from time to time to insure the proper operation of the garage door system.
