Garage Door Cable Repair
Damaged garage door cables pose a tricky situation since cables are basic components of the garage door system. Cables support the smooth and efficient functioning of the garage doors. Cable sizes, lengths, and configurations vary depending on the spring system used for every garage door.
The garage door spring is responsible for power to open the garage door while the cables manage the door’s weight as it moves down and up. With a damaged cable, your garage door becomes inoperable and needs immediate repair or replacement to resume normal functioning.
Since garage door cables are vital for operations, their repair must be performed carefully by a professional. Proper training and tools are mandatory.
Check your garage door cables constantly to ensure they are not worn, torn, or damaged. If you presume there is something wrong with the cables, call Ben’s Garage Doors for immediate garage door cable repair services.
Moreover, if your garage door becomes unlevel, ensure you inspect the cables. Garage door cables with torsion spring setups typically wrap around the drum, causing an interruption in movement. Being one of the essential parts of a garage door system, do not hesitate to call us as soon as you notice any damage.

Garage Door Panel Repair
If a panel or two of your garage door is damaged by accident, should you repair or replace the garage door panels? Your decision to repair or replace a garage door panel depends on several factors;
Age of the Door. If the door has barely reached half of its lifespan, you may want to lean towards the repair. Unfortunately, a garage door panel repair can be a costly affair for most individuals. If all panels are destroyed, replacing the whole thing might make more sense than repair individual panels. However, we still provide garage door panel repair services to our very best.
