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.
In Saint Paul, MN we had a customer that had just bought a new home and needed some repairs done to their Garage Door; they had an accident happen where their car hit a patch of ice and actually slid through their door. We determined it could not be repaired but we were able to offer a Same Day Garage Door Installation and have the door completely replaced later that day. There are many different types of Garage Doors in the Twin Cities area and not everyone can choose what they end up with when they purchase a new home. Some Garage Doors may be very simple in their design or some may be very old and starting to break down. Sometimes we can make repairs to the older doors and make sure they continue to function properly but sometimes it may be time to replace the door or maybe you just want to upgrade the style to leave your own imprint on your home.
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.
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.
Working on Garage Door’s over the years we understand that accidents happen. Seeing doors that have been run into with cars or stuck on a shovel. There are many accidents that happen every day. It is our job to try and at least make the experience you have with getting the accident repaired a fast, and friendly one. We pride ourselves on our customer service as well as our ability to get your Garage Door back in working order ASAP! Recently one of our customers in St. Paul Minnesota accidentally ran into his garage door. Unfortunately the door was damaged beyond repair. We were able to work around the customer’s busy schedule to get the Garage Door Replaced that very weekend. We replaced the damaged door with our Hormann Gemini 2100 model. This door is readily in stock for emergency purposes to ensure fast turnaround time. We have many colors to match a variety of homes including:
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
