Garage Door Drum Repair

Garage door drums are circular rollers with groves and are attached at both the sides of the torsion springs shafts on the top of the garage door. When you raise the door, the safety cables wind and unwind on the grooves of these circular rollers to lift the heavy garage door. Since a garage door is used every day, the frequent use causes wear and tear to springs, drums and cables, preventing the garage door to function the way it should. It is therefore very important to pay attention to these signs and take appropriate actions when you find something wrong with garage door components.
How can a damaged cable drum impact the performance of your garage door? Every time you raise the garage door, the safety cables wind and unwind on the drums to lift the heavy door. Any distortion to the drum shape might cause the safety cables to slip out and lead to a free-fall of the door panels. It can also cause the cable to totally snap and led to damaged tracks.
How can you know there is a problem with the garage door drums? Do you think that your garage door is opening with a sudden jerk? Is it making a squeaking noise? Is the door not able to contact the floor evenly? All these signs indicate that you might want to inspect your drums for any signs of wear and tear or impending break-down.
Should you attempt to repair or replace the cable drums by yourself? It is not a very good idea. The springs and associated parts such as cables and drums are placed under huge tension and any slip might result in the door falling down with immense force and has the potential to cause serious and fatal accidents. It is always advised not to fiddle with these parts yourself and always hire a professional to do the repairing or replacement. The professional technicians are experts, know the risks and work around and are armed with right hardware and helpful tools to perform the repair of garage door drum or any other part efficiently.
