Damaged Garage DRUMS?

When you open or close your garage door, do you hear horrible grating noises or notice the door shaking as it struggles to operate? These performance issues could be an obvious sign that your garage door’s cable drums are damaged. Garage door drums are an important part of your door’s lifting system and when damaged or broken can lead to additional wear-and-tear on other hardware, like the cables and tracks. This could lead to an inoperable door that can leave you in an unwanted situation.

When Should My Drums Be Replaced?

Garage door drums should probably be replaced if there are signs of damage like cracks, broken pieces, or if the drum appears to be damaged or warped. Garage door systems should be inspected at minimum once every year. These yearly inspection will help identify failing parts. Drums require inspection because sometimes the damage is not noticed when you just look at the drum. Since the drums and cables do the heavy lifting, they need to be inspected for damage.
