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.

Satisfaction Guaranteed

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.

Garage Door Won’t Close in St. Paul, MN

Door Stuck Halfway

As a homeowner you trust that your Garage Door will go up and down consistently every time so it can really be frustrating if your door won’t close suddenly. Or similarly, you go to close your door and about halfway it stops and goes back up. Your Garage is a place that you store valuable things such as your car and other items that may be kept for storage so you don’t want to leave your home or go through an entire night with these things exposed. In St. Paul, MN we had a customer that was experiencing this issue where the door would almost close all of the way but then pop back up. Our experienced technicians at Garage Door Repair Company were able to figure out that the door wasn’t running very smoothly and the safety features in the Garage Door Opener were sensing that resistance and causing the door to reverse.

Symptoms and Solutions to this Problem

Today’s modern Garage Door Opener has many safety features that are built in to the software to avoid things like coming down on your child or pet, closing and crushing your car, or leaving your door open once you have already left the premise. Here are a few symptoms and solutions to the problems that may be happening if your Garage Door won’t close:

  • If your door is not running smoothly the opener will think that it is hitting something and go back up.
  • If your child or pet walks underneath the door it has sensors that will cause to go back up.
  • Same thing happens if a vehicle is parked underneath the Garage Door, if it comes down and hits the car it will sense that and reverse.
  • We can perform a tune up and get your door running smooth again or adjust/fix any safety features that may be malfunctioning.

Whatever the issue is, trust the ones who know at Garage Door Repair Co to get your Garage Door running smoothly again.

Safety Comes First

That is why we always check all safety features any time we perform a repair, we don’t want you to have more issues than expected just days or weeks after we left.
