We determined it could not be repaired but we were able to offer a Same Day Garage Door Installation and have the door completely replaced later that day. There are many different types of Garage Doors in the Twin Cities area and not everyone can choose what they end up with when they purchase a new home. Some Garage Doors may be very simple in their design or some may be very old and starting to break down. Sometimes we can make repairs to the older doors and make sure they continue to function properly but sometimes it may be time to replace the door or maybe you just want to upgrade the style to leave your own imprint on your home.

Different Styles and Types of Garage Doors

There are many different types and styles of Garage Doors that our customers can choose from to make their home complete. You could go with something very simple like a steel non-insulated door with a simple raised panel style.

Here are some different options to consider when designing your door:

  • Insulation or No Insulation

Special Reserve Garage Door Installation in White Bear Township, MN

IMG_1163

This February has been crazy with warm temperatures and with warm temperatures we start to think of all the great things that spring and summer bring to Minnesota. Grilling outside, watching baseball, and the smell of fresh cut grass and bonfires in the air. Well when we spend so much time outdoors we start to notice our Garage Doors and the condition they are in. If your Garage Door is wearing down, rotting out around the wood, or just needs an upgrade for curb appeal you can trust the experts at Garage Door Repair Company to handle any installation for you. In White Bear Township we had a customer that had just a run-of-the-mill steel Garage Door that was white with standard raised panels and wanted to upgrade to something that would improve their curb appeal. They decided to go with a custom order Special Reserve Garage Door with stockbridge windows; the door turned out fabulous and really improves the way the house looks from the road.

Difference between Custom Orders and Stock Options

When choosing a new Garage Door we often talk about different things like panel style, window options, straps and handles, and different color options; these are many of our common stock doors that we install on a regular basis. However we also have some custom order options available as well if you are looking for something more than just a standard steel door. We have options that have wood panel overlays, smoked or feather etched windows, and larger panels to have a three panel door which ends up looking more like a carriage door. Our experienced technicians always come out for a free estimate to measure the Garage opening and show you all of the options you have available to ensure you receive the best door you are looking for.

New Garage Door Replacement in Crystal, MN

new-doorAt Garage Door Repair Company we often talk about having your Garage Door and Garage Door Opener inspected to perform any preventative maintenance so that you can avoid any headaches in the future. Sometimes we find that it has gotten to the point where you may just want to replace the entire Garage Door. This was the case for one of our customers in Crystal, MN; they had moved in to their home within the last year but had inherited a cheap sub-par Garage Door. Initially the door worked fine for them but over time it started to jam when closing and even the panels began to crack. We explained to the customer that we could repair the door to the point of getting it functional again but there was nothing we could do about the cracks that were forming on the panels and it would only get worse. They opted to have the door replaced completely and now have peace of mind that they have a quality Garage Door for years to come.

There are a lot of components that many customers don’t consider when purchasing a new door but can really make a huge difference in the long term use of your door and the opener. Even the little things like what type of rollers are being installed, plastic or nylon, will make a big difference in the grand scheme. Here are a few other things to consider with your new Garage Door purchase:

  • Insulation and what grade of insulation.

Broken Cable in Bloomington, MN

blog pic 1The Garage Door is often times considered a luxury of life that not many of us are really thinking about, of course, until the Garage Door breaks down. There are many different problems that can occur with the Garage Door but one of the more difficult repairs is when a broken cable happens to your Garage Door. This often times will happen when the door is opening or closing and because of the weight of the door being supported by the Torsion Springs the door will end up going crooked and jamming completely. In Bloomington, MN we were out servicing a customer for some new bottom seal and new precision bearing rollers but while we were inspecting the entire Garage Door we found that their cable was down to only a few steel threads and was about to snap at any moment. We were able to replace their cables before they broke which can cause even more damage and costs.

Don’t Wait Until it Breaks

It is always a good recommendation to have your Garage Door inspected at least once per year for any damages, safety concerns, or just a good old fashioned tune-up. Especially living in Bloomington, MN or any other area of Minnesota we know the harsh conditions we can go through with the weather; the hot humid summers and the brittle cold winters can really take a toll on your Garage Door and your cables. If a Broken Cable occurs with your Garage Door it can cause a lot more problems than just the repair and replacement of your Broken Cables which is why we always say don’t wait until it breaks and get your Garage Door inspected yearly.

Other Problems a Broken Cable Can Cause

When a Garage Door Cable snaps there are many other concerns that need to be looked at and possibly repaired, here are a few of those concerns:

  • Crooked Door Causing Bent Panels
  • Bending and Twisting of the Track System
  • Roller Heads Popping Off
  • Broken Bottom Brackets
  • Broken Hinges
  • Bending or Breaking of the Rail
  • The Entire Door Falling out of the tracks and possibly damaging vehicles inside the Garage
  • The Door Could Fold in on Itself

These are just some of the concerns that can happen and when this does happen it can end up being very costly. If you have your Garage Door properly maintained you can often times avoid these kinds of emergencies. Check out our customer reviews just to see what kind of service you are guaranteed to receive. Get your peace of mind and always have the experts at Garage Door Repair Company inspect and maintain your Cables and any other Garage Door concerns in Bloomington, MN and the entire Twin Cities area.

Reliability is very important when it comes to your Garage Door in your own home but it is even more important if you run a business where you rely on a commercial garage door operating properly dozens of times per day. In New Hope, MN we had a customer contact us about their Commercial Garage Door that they use for ventilation in their work shop area; someone had run in to the door and all the sections had fallen out of the tracks completely. This customer had contacted a few different companies and one had promised to come out but did not show up; so not only were they dealing with their broken door but unreliable companies. Once they had gotten a hold of us at Garage Door Repair Company we were able to have three technicians onsite and the Garage Door rebuilt in back in operational condition about three hours later. This customer was thrilled and knows who to call the first time for all their Garage Door needs.
