With the weather finally warming up in Minnesota not many of our customers are thinking about their Garage Door any more. Now is the time where you just want to open up the door, take out the grill and some lawn chairs and maybe have a cold beverage and relax. If you suddenly have a broken torsion spring that could really put a kink in your summer plans especially if it is on a weekend. This was the case for one of our customers over in Vadnais Heights, MN; they were having a graduation party the following day and suddenly had a torsion spring snap. It happened on a Saturday afternoon and the customer was concerned about finding someone to take care of the repair; we were able to have a technician out within two hours of the initial contact to make sure the grad party went off without a hitch.
June is National Garage Door Safety month and we at Garage Door Repair Company want to go over some things that many customers are not always thinking about when it comes to their Garage Door. Your door is the largest moving mechanical object in your home and it is very important to make sure it is safe and working properly. By having a tune up and safety inspection completed we can ensure that all your safety features are working on your Garage Door Opener and also take care of any preventative maintenance before any issues happen like a snapped cable or the door fall down unexpectedly. We cover the entire Twin Cities metro area and are based out of St. Paul, MN so call today to have your tune up and safety inspection completed.
Getting your Garage Door Serviced regularly is probably the last thing on your mind. However it is very important to have this done at least once every year to ensure safe and proper operation. Recently in St. Paul MN we were out on a standard Garage Door Tune Up & Safety Inspection. While checking the entire door it was quite evident that the cables were very close to snapping. This was caused by the heavy amount of rust located in the corner of the garage door. Our technician was able to replace all the rusted components to ensure the customer did not have a cable snap. By replacing the cable before it breaks you are saving not only your time but money. When a cable breaks the entire door goes crooked and can in some cases come out of the tracks. So replacing it before it breaks you reduce the amount of damage done, as well as time to repair the door.
It is a major inconvenience to have your Garage Door suddenly break down. Whether it is a broken spring, broken cable, cracked panel, or even a full replacement we understand that you don’t want to have to waste time worrying about it. That’s why we always guarantee same day appointments to make sure you can get your door and your day back on track. In Blaine, MN one of our customers had a cable snap on their Garage Door causing it to go crooked. The way that the panels bent caused damage to the track system and the panels themselves were cracking and it came to a point where the cheaper option was to do a Full Garage Door Replacement. We were able to have another technician bring a new Garage Door out to the work site and we had the door fully replaced within three hours of arriving on site. For fast same day repairs and installations Garage Door Repair Company is the place to call.
If you notice that your garage door is not running smoothly, perhaps it’s buckling and you see that the sections are starting to crack. This is most often the sign of a lack of support beams on the garage door. This happened to be the case for one of our St. Paul customers, his door had been buckling for a while but had now gotten to the point where it would no longer operate. After going over all the options with the customer it was decided that Garage Door Replacement was the best course of action. We promptly set up an appointment for the next morning and completed the work within 24hours
When you run a business that has a lot of shipping and receiving Garage Doors or an auto repair shop where you may be running your door up and down many times throughout the day you need to make sure that the Garage Door is always running smoothly. If your Commercial Garage Door stops working it immediately slows down your production and will impact your bottom line. The other day in St. Paul, MN we had a company call us that had one of their workers run in to one of their doors with a forklift. It bent the bottom section and knocked the entire door out of its tracks and also dumped the cables off the torsion system. We were able to have a technician out to their place of business within an hour of their phone call and have the door back up and running shortly after. At Garage Door Repair Company we know how important it is to keep your business up and running all day long.
