busted door 2busted door fixedIn Saint Paul, MN we had a customer that had just bought a new home and needed some repairs done to their Garage Door; they had an accident happen where their car hit a patch of ice and actually slid through their door. 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

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.

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.

Broken Garage Door Cable Repair in Maplewood, MN

bent and broken

The Garage Door is one of the things that should work the same way every day; you push the button on the remote control and the Garage Door Opener turns on and the door begins to open. You pull your car in the Garage and push the wall button and the door begins to close. This process happens more often in the day than most people realize and eventually something will break down. With such a large moving piece of equipment there are a lot of different moving parts and many of these things have a lot of strong tension on them. If you go to push the button on your remote and the door starts going up and suddenly something snaps and the door goes crooked you may have just had a Garage Door Cable break.

Dangers of Do-it-Yourself Garage Door Repairs

In Maplewood, MN we had a customer that had their Garage Door Cable Break in the morning when they were on the way to drop their kids off at day care. Often times this is a very inconvenient problem because you can never predict when a cable is going to break but unfortunately it is one of those things that will eventually break. This is where it is important to have a professional handle the repair because of the amount of tension that is put on these cables and if one snaps or pops off within the vicinity of any body parts it can actually cut in to your skin. For the customer in Maplewood, MN we were able to arrive at their residence on the same day within only a few hours and make the repair. Don’t let a Broken Garage Door Cable stop your day and make sure you call Garage Door Repair Company for guaranteed Same Day Service.

Causes of Broken Garage Door Cables

There are a few different ways you can avoid the inconvenience of a Broken Garage Door Cable. Maintaining the door, lubricating moving parts, or even having it replaced every few years. We also do have some thicker gauge cables that can be used to last longer than the standard cables. Here are a few other things that can be checked and maintained to avoid Garage Door Cables snapping:

  • Check your Bottom Brackets for Rust
  • Check your Bottom Seal for wear and tear or leaks
  • Make Sure your Aluminum Retainer isn’t Bent or Broken
  • Inspect where the Cables are attached to the Brackets
  • Lubrication of all moving parts

Torsion Conversion in South St. Paul, MN

Torsion System

Often times our customers will inquire about purchasing a brand new Garage Door and price will be a huge talking point when we are giving out quotes. However a cheaper price does not always mean a good quality product. For example some of the larger corporate hardware stores will have Garage Doors for sale at a very cheap price and it seems like this is the route to go. However down the road when a Torsion Spring breaks or a Cable snaps, customers that have purchased these cheaper doors find out that the spring system that was installed, such as an easy-wind or torque-master system, cannot be repaired and that is when they must have a standard Torsion Conversion done.

This was the case for one of our customers in South St. Paul, MN where they had moved in to a new home and found that the seller had purchased a cheaper door replacement and now they had a broken spring on an easy-wind system. Many of the components of this system are made of plastic or other sub-par materials and are put together in a way that cannot be repaired but only replaced. The cost of the replacement is not cheap which is why we will always recommend that you have your Garage Door Installation done by one of our professional technicians at Garage Door Repair Company with a standard Torsion system in place to avoid having to do a costly Torsion Conversion down the road.

Components in a Torsion Conversion

Part of the reason we always recommend having your Garage Door Installation done by one of our professionals is the amount of parts and labor that go in to a Torsion Conversion. First you have to tear out the old system which is time consuming and dangerous and then install the new system. Here are some of the components that are involved in a Torsion Conversion:

  • New Steel Shaft
  • New Torsion Springs
  • New End Bearings
  • New Center Bearing
  • New Drums
  • New Center Plate
  • New Cables

All of these things are necessary when performing a Torsion Conversion in South St. Paul, MN or any part of the Twin Cities metro and are warrantied for 5 years from the date of Installation

Professional Installation

In the future when you are considering replacement of your Garage Door make sure that you have a professional installation done to avoid costly repairs in the future. Torsion Conversions can be done same-day and our technicians always have fully stocked trucks to meet any of your needs but getting things installed properly the first time is always recommended. For all your Garage Door repairs or installations needed trust the experts at Garage Door Repair Company to help you save money and headaches in the future.
