If you have a standard torsion system you will see a bar that spans the width of the door, with cable-wrapped drums on each end. On the bar, you will see one or two (depending on your garage door) thick springs. Check to see if one of the garage door springs has a gap, if so then you have a broken garage door spring and may require garage door replacement.
If the spring does not have a gap, then the loose cable is due to some other factor. Your garage door could be out of balance, off track, you could have failing rollers, loose set screws, or something else. If you are exceptionally handy you may be able to fix the problem yourself, however, it is safest and best to have a professional come inspect your garage door to determine the actual cause and make the garage door repair in Katy, TX.
We’ve helped many customers who attempted to fix the problem themselves only to do more damage, and it costing more money. We also recommend scheduling regular garage door maintenance.
NOTE: Garage doors are extremely heavy and the garage door springs are under immense tension as they act as a counter-balance to the door itself. DIYers proceed with extreme caution with garage door installation!
