Broken Garage Door Cable

Broken Garage Door Cable – Cedar Rapids

Garage door cables run up the sides of your garage door and help allow it to operate and open properly. They help to slowly and safely lower your door while closing. If the garage door cable breaks, you will see just how fast your garage door slams down. This is very dangerous and can critically hurt someone. If your Cedar Rapids home has a broken garage door cable, contact American Certified Services, Inc. immediately. This can be very dangerous, especially for homes with children and we strongly advise having a professional technicians come and assess the problem and replace your garage door cable.

Garage Door Cable Snapped

Often a broken garage door cable snapped because the garage door springs have worn down and no longer work or recently have snapped as well. When the springs break, all the weight from the door is being put on the cables. A cable breaking is similar to a rubber band snapping. When it breaks, it flies. Garage doors are not a lightweight object so imagine a rubber band snapping on you but then add hundreds of pounds. That’s how bad a garage door would hurt if it came crashing down on you. A snapped garage door cable causes a lot more damage than just not being able to open or close your garage door automatically.

Refrain from parking your car in your Cedar Rapids home’s garage until the garage door cable has been repaired. Your door will not automatically open or close if the cable is broken. In order to operate your door, you will have to manually open and close it.
