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.

Satisfaction Guaranteed

Bottom Seal Replacement in Falcon Heights, MN


Bottom Seal NewWhen your Garage Door breaks down there are some common problems that you may think of that need to be repaired. Broken springs, broken cables, maybe the opener stopped working and needs replacement. However there are a few things that many of our customers may not be thinking about but are just as important to the health of your Garage Door. One of those things is making sure your bottom seal is intact all the way across the bottom of your entire door. In Falcon Heights we had a customer that recently purchased a new home and the Garage Door did not even have the retainer that the bottom seal slides in to so we had to do a full bottom seal replacement.


Importance of Bottom Seal

Bottom seal is not something that you may always think of when you are having your Garage Door serviced but it is very important to have this checked and replaced if your seal is peeling or missing. Here are some things that the bottom seal will help to protect:

  • Keep Moisture Out of the Garage Reducing Rust
  • Keep Rodents Out
  • Create a Better Seal for Insulated Garages
  • If you Heat your Garage it will help keep the heat in better
  • Protect your Bottom Brackets and Cables from Rust

All of these things play a role when it comes to having a solid bottom seal. We also have different sizes, colors, and types of seal for whatever your Garage Door may need. All of our technicians will run over your entire door when providing services so that we don’t miss the things you may not be thinking about.

21 Point Inspection

Bottom Seal is not something our customers are always thinking about so that is why we always run a 21 point inspection of your entire Garage Door so that we don’t miss things our customers may not be thinking about. Whether it is just the bottom seal or a broken roller we will be able to provide any repairs or replacements. We will have a technician out same day, twenty four hours a day, guaranteed. Call 612-886-9606 to have your Garage Door Inspected today.

Same Day Broken Cable Repair in Ham Lake, MN

Rusted Cables and Brackets


No matter where you are located, no matter what the problem, Garage Door Repair Company can provide Same Day Repairs. In Ham Lake, MN we had a customer that had just come home from work and went to open their Garage Door and something made a loud snapping noise and the whole door went crooked. We were able to have a technician out within an hour after she had contacted us and found that she had a broken cable due to some rusty brackets and rollers. Broken Cables and Broken Springs are the most common type of repair this time of year with the cold weather; it can be somewhat dangerous to make these repairs yourself and can also take a lot of time. We can usually complete these repairs in under an hour and help get your day and your door back on track.

Common Causes of Broken Cables

Broken Cables will usually happen very unexpectedly because they are located in an area that is not the most visible. It is also not something many home owners are thinking about on a daily basis so when something like this does happen it can really throw off your day. There are a few minor things you can do to try and avoid this happening unexpectedly:

  • Having your door tuned up regularly
  • Lubrication of all moving parts
  • Precision Bearing Rollers to reduce friction
  • Watch for any rust
  • Using Stainless Steel Cables
  • Replace any fraying cables

These are just a few things you can watch for to avoid any unexpected and costly repairs but if you are caught off guard make sure to call Garage Door Repair Company at 612-886-9606 first and we will guarantee Same Day Service.

Roller & Hinge Replacement Minneapolis, Minnesota

Minneapolis Garage Door Hinge ReplacementWe all have heard what a noisy garage door sounds like. Very few of us actually take the noise for what it is, a sign that something is failing on your garage door. Many homeowners think that the garage door is supposed to make noise which is true, but if you are hearing loud squeaking, popping, banging or grinding these are signs that something is not functioning properly. This was recently the case for one of our Minneapolis, MN customers. This customer initially called stating that the garage doors were starting to make a grinding noise, and requested for us to come out and perform a tune up on his two garage doors. Upon arrival it was obvious to the technician what was causing the issue. The rollers in both garage doors were worn out and the hinges in return were cracking and pulling away from the garage door. After going over all the options with the Minneapolis homeowner, he elected to replace all the rollers and hinges on both garage doors.

What causes Garage Door Rollers to make Noise?

When you are operating your garage door and you hear grinding or squealing, often times it is due to the garage door rollers. This is a result of the ball bearings inside the roller either getting corroded with rust and dirt, or just being at the end of their life cycle. Many customers often overlook these issues as a result causing further damage to the garage door. Here are some examples of other issues that can occur by running your garage door with worn out rollers.New garage door hinge Minnesota
