broken spring twin citiesHas your garage door ever had trouble opening? Perhaps it only goes up a few inches or feet and stops, or maybe it doesn’t open at all. This is most often due to a Broken Garage Door Spring. Garage Door Springs are the lifeblood of the over Garage Door Torsion System; without the springs the garage door would be far too heavy for your opener to lift it. It is not uncommon for garage doors to weigh in excess of 300 lbs. A broken spring was most recently the culprit for one of our Twin City, MN customers. The customer called after trying to leave for work noticing the garage door only opened a couple of inches and stopped. We were able to assist the customer in scheduling an appointment that very morning. After arrival it was apparent that the customer indeed had a broken garage door spring. The problem was quickly resolved within a matter of hours of the customer’s initial phone call.

Checking for Broken Torsion Spring

There are a few signs that can indicate that you may indeed have a Garage Door Spring that Needs Replacement. Here are the most common and easiest to evaluate:

  • Loud Snap or Pop During Garage Door Operation
  • Door Only Travels a Few Inches or Feet
  • Crooked Garage Door
  • Space Between Spring Coils Exposing Torsion Shaft
  • Door Extremely Heavy

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
