Garage Door Drums

Garage Door Cable Drum Replacement

Along with your torsion spring system, garage door drums provide the tension and support required to lift and lower the garage door with ease. Worn drums might make it challenging to operate your door and, more importantly, jeopardize its safety by straining other components.

Precision installs the highest-quality garage door cable drums to keep your door operating smoothly and safely.

When Should Drums Be Replaced?

Like all garage door parts, cable drums wear out or get broken over time, which can cause a lot of other issues with your garage door if ignored.

If you experience any of the following problems, it could be time to replace your garage door cable drums:

  • You hear a loud grinding noise when using the door –  This could indicate that the cable drums are worn out or broken and can no longer properly support the door’s weight.
  • You can’t open the door at all – A issue with the cable drums may be to blame if the door is stuck (or appears to be stuck) in place.
  • The cables appear frayed or broken – Worn cables aren’t able to properly support the weight of the door, which could damage the drums.
  • The door has fallen shut – Broken drums are one of several reasons a garage door could fall. Do not attempt to use your garage door if it has slammed shut, and instead call a professional right away.

It’s best to call Precision as soon as your garage door stops working properly. Quickly repairing the door helps avoid future damage and more expensive repairs down the line.

“Very happy with our experience. The technician, Johnny Flores, was patient and explained everything before any work was done and when completed, took time with the directions for the new opener. Also left a clean space and made sure I was happy with everything.” – Mary F
“Excellent customer service all around. My cable cords got bunched up after I accidentally hit my garage door backing up (oops, thankfully no major damage) and I was able to call and have someone come out the same day. Johnny was excellent! I will definitely use them again for any garage needs in the future.” – Jori S.
“Precision was quick to get a technician out to fix my garage door. He came on time and fixed the broken spring on my garage quickly and efficiently. He provided me options, but was not pushy. The advice was given in a professional manner from a knowledgeable service man. I would recommend Precision Garage Door Service and will call them for any future needs.” – Kathy K.
