Broken garage door cables can lead to some serious safety issues with your garage. As you know, the garage door can weigh upwards of 300 pounds, and the cables are necessary to help support that weight as the door is raised and lowered. Broken cables are typically caused by excessive wear over time. After all, nothing lasts forever, and though the cables are typically made with strong steel wound together, they’ll still wear out over time. When investing in new cables, you need to make sure that you get the proper size for your garage door. A larger garage door or double door is going to require a thicker cable to sustain the weight load. Give Fox Overhead Door a call today to discuss your options with getting this taken care of.
