If your garage door is not working at all or not working correctly, you might wonder if it is something that you can fix without hiring a professional. The truth is that there are some relatively simple things that you can do to repair your own garage door
Like any machine that has any degree of complexity, your garage door will eventually develop a problem that requires the attention of a professional. Unfortunately, not every problem with a garage door is as simple to fix as removing a fallen shovel or bag of tree mulch from blocking a safety sensor. Over time, the moving parts of your garage door system can wear and break down, and that is where we can help. When your garage door stops functioning the way you need it to, Rise & Shine Garage Doors can fix it quickly and affordably.
Your garage door functions in large part because of tension that is created and released. Two specific components—the spring and the cable—are designed to withstand the tension
The garage door may not be a miracle of engineering like the airplane, but it is quite remarkable in its own way. The frame that supports your garage door as it moves along its tracks when you open and close it is fairly simple and minimalistic. What that means is that a minimal amount of material is used to attach to the ceiling and/or walls of your garage so that the weight of the garage door itself, but so that the mechanisms do not dominate the space.
If you own a business, and several vehicles help to keep your business going, you very likely rely on your garage door(s) more than you even realize.

The Garage Door is often times considered a luxury of life that not many of us are really thinking about, of course, until the Garage Door breaks down. There are many different problems that can occur with the Garage Door but one of the more difficult repairs is when a broken cable happens to your Garage Door. This often times will happen when the door is opening or closing and because of the weight of the door being supported by the Torsion Springs the door will end up going crooked and jamming completely. In Bloomington, MN we were out servicing a customer for some new bottom seal and new precision bearing rollers but while we were inspecting the entire Garage Door we found that their cable was down to only a few steel threads and was about to snap at any moment. We were able to replace their cables before they broke which can cause even more damage and costs.
There is nothing worse than waking up and getting ready for a busy day when SNAP! Your Garage Door Cable Breaks… Now your door is likely crooked, possibly hanging out of the tracks.

When running a business anyway you can reduce cost is always a plus. Recently in Hudson Wisconsin we had a company who was having issues with cold air flow coming into the shop. This was increasing their heating bill; the problem was traced back to the garage door. The outside weather seal had ripped away from one side of the garage door as well as the bottom seal was completely worn out. After noticing a spike in their heating expenses they decided it was time to get the problem resolved immediately. After setting up a same day Garage Door Repair, we were able to get both the side and bottom weather seals replaced,
