The Garage Door is one of the things that should work the same way every day; you push the button on the remote control and the Garage Door Opener turns on and the door begins to open. You pull your car in the Garage and push the wall button and the door begins to close. This process happens more often in the day than most people realize and eventually something will break down. With such a large moving piece of equipment there are a lot of different moving parts and many of these things have a lot of strong tension on them. If you go to push the button on your remote and the door starts going up and suddenly something snaps and the door goes crooked you may have just had a Garage Door Cable break.
Dangers of Do-it-Yourself Garage Door Repairs
In Maplewood, MN we had a customer that had their Garage Door Cable Break in the morning when they were on the way to drop their kids off at day care. Often times this is a very inconvenient problem because you can never predict when a cable is going to break but unfortunately it is one of those things that will eventually break. This is where it is important to have a professional handle the repair because of the amount of tension that is put on these cables and if one snaps or pops off within the vicinity of any body parts it can actually cut in to your skin. For the customer in Maplewood, MN we were able to arrive at their residence on the same day within only a few hours and make the repair.
