New bottom seal EaganSometimes in life it’s the little things than can truly make a difference. The same can be said for Garage Doors. By overlooking the small issues, you can in turn create a much bigger problem. This was most recently the case for one of our Eagan customers. This particular customer had a severe rust problem on the edges of the door. This caused the cables to break, and the door went crooked. While inspecting the door it was apparent that the Garage Door Bottom Seal was worn out. It had completely ripped away from the edges of the garage door. Without having a proper barrier between the garage door and the floor, the door sat in the moisture build up in the garage causing rust. Rise & Shine Garage Doors was able to make all the repairs same day including the replacement of the bottom seal. We were able to do this by always carrying fully stocked service trucks to ensure the job is handled right the first time.

How to get rid of Rust on the Garage Door?

Rust is one of the most common causes for Garage Door Repairs and Replacement’s. Which is why it is important to deal with it in a timely manner. We recommend spraying the bottom of your door with rust preventative spray or lubricant. Also ensure the bottom seal on your garage door is not worn out or ripped. If you notice that one or both sides of the garage tend to pool water, remove the water so it does not sit on the door. By taking these steps you can help eliminate rust issues on your garage door or stop them all together. Here is  a list of garage door parts that are affected by rust:

  • Garage Door Cables
  • Garage Door Bottom Brackets
  • Vertical Track
  • Bottom Retainer for Seal
  • Door Panels

In the event that rust ends up on your door it is important you get the right company to handle the issue. Rise & Shine Garage Doors has all the proper tools, parts, and knowledge to handle any Garage Door Issue. We also provide all of our valued Eagan customers with Same Day Service.

Navigating COVID-19

We are still open as an essential business

To our valued customers,

Recent news about COVID-19 is unfortunate for many of our customers and our local businesses. As we continue to learn more about COVID-19 and as other businesses start the Pause phase of the recent Executive Order, our team at Rise & Shine Garage Doors would like to express our concern for all those who have been affected. Our employees and our customers are our top priority , and we are doing everything we can to ensure the health and safety of each.

We have been closely monitoring the situation since it began and fully support all precautions being taken to prevent any further spread of the virus. Rise & Shine Garage Doors has remained open and in full operation as we understand how important it may be to your daily lives to have a fully functional Garage Door. We continue to follow the plan we set in place in March when this pandemic began and will continue to do so. These are the changes we have made to our policies to help prevent the spread:

  • Our technicians will practice social distancing rather than shaking hands at the door.
  • Estimates and repair recommendations will be done remotely or over the phone while our customers stay inside or quarantined.
  • Preferably all payments will be made by credit card rather than by check.
  • We will continue to clean up after ourselves, wash our hands, and use hand sanitizer often.

The nature of our industry allows us a lot of flexibility in these times as most of our technicians are working in one to two man crews which is well under the guidelines that have been laid out before us. We even have the ability to complete all work without any face to face interactions and take payments over the phone.

We thank you for working with us as we navigate this situation.

With kind regards,

Josh Dutcher and Alex Johantgen

Rise & Shine Garage Doors Team
