When people think of garage doors, they generally think about the doors themselves and the openers. There are other components that may be overlooked until something goes wrong. Then the garage door owner is left wondering what is wrong with their garage door and how to fix it. One issue that a garage door owner may discover to be the culprit when their garage door breaks down is the garage door cable.
The garage door cable works with pulleys or drums and the springs of your garage door to help lift the door. There are two main types of springs garage door cables work with. These are torsion and extension springs.
Over time, the garage door cable can begin to fray from regular use. If you live in a climate with moisture and large temperature changes, your cable may experience corrosion. Mixed with regular wear and tear, it can lead to a broken cable.
If you see a cable hanging loose and your door is struggling to open, you likely have an issue with your garage door cable and need to have it replaced.
While the cable itself may not cost a lot if you decide to repair your garage door on your own (generally around $8 to $20), it is also very difficult to do on your own. You don’t want to risk doing it incorrectly or even injuring yourself.
Generally, the cost to replace a garage door cable will run from around $130 to $200. Most of what you are paying for is the expertise of the garage door cable installer. While this may seem like a significant jump in cost, it actually can end up saving you time and money. If you don’t know how to work on garage doors, you risk doing additional damage—which will cost more to fix. It also will take time that you could be spending on something else.

From there, an expert tech will check out the damage and see if any other parts of the door are having issues. They will then expertly repair your garage.
