cable replacementIt’s not often people take the time to look at their garage door, even if there are warning signs that if noticed can reduce the risk of serious issues. This was recently the case for one of our customers in St Louis Park, Mn. Rust had worked its way onto the Cables of the Garage Door causing them to fray and eventually snap. This in turn caused the door to go crooked and bend track. After the customer called to set up an appointment one of our technicians was able to have the door running like new within 1 hour of the arrival time. We were also able to upgrade the cables from a galvanized to stainless steel, ensuring that they will never rust through again. We also replaced all the Garage Door Rollers to make sure the door was operating smoothly.

Garage Door Preventative Maintenance

As a Garage Door Company it is often our job to inform homeowners about how to properly take care of their garage doors. Our technicians often go over the functions of the garage door and also give homeowners tips to keep it running properly. By having annual Garage Door Tune Up & Inspections many repairs can be avoided completely. Here is a list of preventative maintenance and thinks to look out for on your garage door:

  • Lubrication of all moving garage door parts
  • Checking for rust/corrosion
  • Check spring balance by running door by hand, ensure it’s not too heavy and does not fall down on its own
  • Check opener forces refer to manual for proper settings
  • Ensure safety sensors are between 4-6 inches off the floor

If you’re in need of any garage door maintenance it is best not to put it off until it turns into a major problem. Simply call the pro’s at Rise & Shine Garage Doors and we can be out Same Day to take care of any issues or concerns you may have.

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
