Garage Door Cable Repair

Garage Door Cables

Garage Door Cables are a crucial component of the garage door system as a whole. These cables are responsible for supporting the weight of the door as it opens and closes. They work together with the garage springs to ensure smooth movement and balance of the door. This prevents the door from abrupt door closures.

Next day service for a hinge that needed to be replaced. Scorching day and Scott fixed the hinge in a short time. I was surprised that the door had a 5 year warranty and the service charge was all I paid. I recommend Ideal Garage Door!
