Special Reserve Garage Door Installation in White Bear Township, MN


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.

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.

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.
