New Garage Door Excelsior, MN

New Garage DoorThere are many reasons why you may be thinking of replacing your garage door. Whether it’s because the door is not operating correctly, perhaps the door is rotting or rusting, or it may be just time to update to a new system. This was the case for one of our Excelsior, MN customers. The Garage Door was out of date and our customer was looking to update while adding some curb appeal. Adding windows to the Garage Door is one of the best ways to add curb appeal to a garage door. Along with letting great natural light in, it also adds a distinct look to your home to set you apart from your neighbors. The final product speaks for itself and our homeowner couldn’t be happier with the Garage Door.

Is Garage Door Replacement a Seasonal Project?

It is often presumed that replacing your garage door cannot be completed once the snow flies. At Garage Door Repair Company, we replace Garage Doors year round. Winter can be extremely busy as the cold weather, snow, ice, salt seem to wreak havoc on garage doors. In many cases garage door replacement can often times make more financial sense than repairing your current garage door. Here are some examples of garage doors that may be better off replacing than repairing.

  • Rotting or Rusting Door (If your garage door is rotting or rusting, it may be time to consider replacement)
  • Tilt up Garage Door (Tilt up Garage Doors are a thing of the past, the system is extremely out of date and repairs can be considered no more than a band aid)
  • Extension Springs (If your door has springs that run along the outsides of the horizontal tracking you have extension springs. These springs are extremely dangerous and out of date. If you have this system it is time to consider either a torsion conversion or complete garage door replacement)

When the time comes to replace your garage door, it’s important you hire the right company. Garage Door Repair Company has over 10 years of experience and can handle any type of job. Whether you’re looking to update your out of date garage door or want to go with a custom design we can help! We always offer all our Excelsior customers free onsite estimates. This allows you to find the perfect door for you with no pressure. If you are interested in making an appointment simply call 612-886-9606.

Cottage Style Garage Door Installation Roseville, MN

Roseville Cottage Style Garage Door InstallationThere are many reasons homeowners decide to replace their garage door; whether it’s to add curb appeal, gain a higher R-Value, or maybe it’s just more cost effective to replace it rather than repair it. In Roseville Minnesota we recently had a customer who had a very outdated garage door with a broken spring. This particular customer decided that it would be more cost effective to just start over and replace the garage door. After going over all the new garage door options, we picked out the perfect door that would also add great curb appeal to this Roseville customer’s home. The door that was picked out was from our Hormann Gemini Collection, more specifically, our Cottage Design with Cross Glass and Decorative Hardware.

Is Garage Door Installation a DIY Project?

This is not a simple yes or no question. In most cases where customers are looking to install their own garage door it is to save money. If this is the reason you are considering installing a garage door yourself we recommend you at least get an estimate from professional company first. In most cases homeowners are surprised how affordable it is to have a professional do the installation. Not only will you be having a professional complete the project but you will also receive higher quality parts than from a department store. Garage door installations can also be very dangerous. Without proper tools, parts, and training, garage doors can cause serious injury. If you do plan to install your own garage door, here are some things to keep in mind.

  • Be sure to take exact measurements of opening width/height and headroom
  • Make sure to have all the right tools for the job
  • Research and watch some “how to” videos prior to installation
  • At time of door purchase, ask to upgrade to the Professional Torsion Spring System
