The cables in your garage door are crucial for its continued smooth operation. The ease with which your garage door opens – whether it’s a manual or an electric model – is all down to these tension cables and the role they play, acting as a counterweight to the door itself. Having one of those cables become misaligned from its original position or, in the worst-case scenario, actually snap, is not uncommon. Indeed, it’s probably one of those little problems that every garage owner has had do put up with at one time or another. Fixing the problem is fairly straightforward too and an experience repair expert – like you’ll find at Garage Door Repairs, for instance – can handle these repairs in next to no time.

Better safe than sorry

So, if garage door cable repairs are so simple, is there any reason to call out a professional in the first place? While we have no problem with anybody trying to replace a garage door cable themselves, we always recommend the hiring of an expert. While the process might be simple for an experienced repairer, garage door cable repairs can prove to be extremely dangerous if you’ve never tried them before. The cables hold a lot of tension in them, enough to easily trap your fingers in. If you need to cut the cables to release the tension, the sudden release can cause it to whiplash, potentially causing injuries to your face or even your eyes. With the right preparation and care, these factors can be safely eliminated. Just ask yourself if you have the knowhow, and if it’s worth the risk.
