Garage Door Strip ReplacementWinter is coming, and if you have any water seeping in around your Garage Door it may be time to look at having your Bottom Seal Replaced. This is an important component of the Garage Door and is often times overlooked due to the idea that it isn’t really that big of a deal. Most times this is an inexpensive repair that can save a lot of headaches that come from water damage, ice in the winter time, or damage to your bottom section. In Little Canada, MN we had a customer that was having a problem with water seeping in to their Garage and it was causing damage to the wooden section and also just creating puddles of water in their Garage. We were able to replace the old seal with a new Aluminum Retainer and a three inch thick Bottom Seal.

Different Types of Bottom Seal

There are many different types of Garage Door Bottom Seals that may be in use depending on what type of door you have and the material it is made from. We want our customers to always have options to what type, color, and thickness of Bottom Seal you may need. At the Little Canada location this customer had a thinner wood door with an outdated seal that only added a quarter of an inch of thickness at the bottom; not only that, but the section did not have an Aluminum Retainer which will give added protection from the elements. We were able to install an inch and three eighths Aluminum Retainer to the bottom section of the Garage Door and then slide a standard T-shaped three inch thick Bottom Seal. After the installation we tested the new bottom seal by pouring water around the bottom section and there was no longer any water seeping in.

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
