There are some common repairs with Garage Doors and then there are some uncommon repairs with Garage Doors. Broken Springs are probably one of the most common types of repairs that we do with Garage Doors and it can happen to you at any time. In Mendota Heights, MN we had a customer who had just come home from vacation when their spring snapped. Often times it can sound like a gun just went off because there is so much tension on those springs that when they break it can be very dangerous. This is why you always want to trust your Torsion Spring Replacement with an expert. This will ensure that the job is done properly, safely, and you won’t have any other issues in the future. For the Mendota Heights customer we were able to get a technician out immediately after they contacted us and get their Garage Door up and running again within hours.
This February has been crazy with warm temperatures and with warm temperatures we start to think of all the great things that spring and summer bring to Minnesota. Grilling outside, watching baseball, and the smell of fresh cut grass and bonfires in the air. Well when we spend so much time outdoors we start to notice our Garage Doors and the condition they are in. If your Garage Door is wearing down, rotting out around the wood, or just needs an upgrade for curb appeal you can trust the experts at Garage Door Repair Company to handle any installation for you. In White Bear Township we had a customer that had just a run-of-the-mill steel Garage Door that was white with standard raised panels and wanted to upgrade to something that would improve their curb appeal. They decided to go with a custom order Special Reserve Garage Door with stockbridge windows; the door turned out fabulous and really improves the way the house looks from the road.
It is never easy when something breaks down and it is even worse when it happens unexpectedly. It can throw off your entire schedule and if something breaks down late at night you don’t want to have to wait until morning to have it repaired. Especially when the thing that has broken down is your Garage Door or Garage Door Opener. Sometimes the Garage Door can get jammed open due to a broken cable or torsion spring or the Garage Door Opener may stop working and now your door won’t close properly. Garage Door Repair Company offers 24 Hour Repair Service to meet all of your emergency needs. Over in Minneapolis, MN we had a customer that had an issue with their Garage Door Opener happen at the end of the night when they were locking down the house to go to bed. This customer was concerned about leaving the Garage Door open overnight with their cars and valuables exposed. Even though it was 7:30 PM when the initial contact was made we were still able to have a technician out to their residence within an hour. We were able to make the repair and get the customer’s Garage Door closed and locked down for the night.
Reliability is very important when it comes to your Garage Door in your own home but it is even more important if you run a business where you rely on a commercial garage door operating properly dozens of times per day. In New Hope, MN we had a customer contact us about their Commercial Garage Door that they use for ventilation in their work shop area; someone had run in to the door and all the sections had fallen out of the tracks completely. This customer had contacted a few different companies and one had promised to come out but did not show up; so not only were they dealing with their broken door but unreliable companies. Once they had gotten a hold of us at Garage Door Repair Company we were able to have three technicians onsite and the Garage Door rebuilt in back in operational condition about three hours later. This customer was thrilled and knows who to call the first time for all their Garage Door needs.
Recently we came across an opener that had been working great for years and then all of a sudden the door would only work if the remotes were within a couple feet of the garage door opener. This can often be the issue if a bad battery is being used in the remote, but what has been becoming more common is Frequency Interference. This can be caused by a multitude of reasons and is and extremely tough problem to resolve without changing either the radio board or the entire opener. After going over all the options it was decided that replacement opener that runs on a new frequency would be the best bet.
