Maintenance Practices to Keep Your Garage Door Cables in Top Shape
Garage doors have two spring systems: torsion and extension spring systems. These systems are fortified by cables which roll over pulleys onto a drum to support the weight of the door and act as a safety measure in case the springs snap/break. These cables are built to be strong but flexible, given the weight of the garage door. As with any moving part, wear on your cables is inevitable, but proper maintenance can slow down this process.
