Garage Door Drum Replacement
As the primary entrance to most homes today, it’s estimated that most average homeowners use their garage doors at least 1,500 times every year. With such regular use, it’s crucial to keep every aspect of your garage door system in optimal condition to prevent unexpected breakages. The garage door drums are a piece of your door’s lifting system, so it’s common that these pieces of hardware experience wear and damage over time. When the garage door drums break, it may be difficult or impossible to open your door.
What Are the Garage Door Drums?
Garage door drums are part of your door’s counterbalancing system — a series of parts and hardware, including the torsion springs, that offset the weight of the garage door, allowing it to easily and smoothly lift and lower without straining the opener or other parts of the door. The drums are circular rollers with grooves mounted on either side of the shaft of your garage door’s torsion spring bar.
Cables are wrapped around the garage door drum. The drums and cables are primarily responsible for raising and lowering the garage door.
Signs Your Garage Door Drums Need to Be Replaced
While operating your garage door, note any unusual operations like shaking, vibrating or noisy drums. Other signs of garage door drum damage include chipping, cracks, broken areas of the drum or warping. When you notice severe signs of garage door drum damage, contact a professional to thoroughly inspect your garage door and recommend repairs to prevent damage to other components of the door or even the door itself.
Always Trust a Professional for Garage Door Drum Repair
Since the garage door drums are connected to the cables as well as the tension spring system, repairing or replacing drums should be completed by a professional. Mishandled garage door drums, springs and cables can cause significant property damage or personal harm. By trusting a professional garage door repair company for all of your needs, you’re assured:
- Proper repairs using only quality tools and equipment.
- Services completed by highly trained, experienced professionals for lasting results and safety.
