We are nearing the end of 2016 and winter is just around the corner; even though it is still September, now is the time to start thinking about your Garage Door. Today in West St. Paul we had a customer have their Torsion Spring break a few days ago and wasn’t really in a rush to get it fixed since their car was parked outside. That may be the case right now but as the temperatures begin to drop, as the always do in Minnesota, our customers will start to park inside their Garage and if something does happen you can get stuck inside at the wrong moment. This is where things like our tune up and inspection programs can come in handy to identify and perform preventative maintenance so these things don’t happen.
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.
Summer is just around the corner here in Minnesota and even though new Garage Doors are going in every day at this time of year there are still plenty of repairs that may need to be done to your door. In Stillwater, MN we had a customer that was just about to leave on a Friday night to go out of town for Memorial Day weekend and suddenly their Torsion Spring broke; trapping their vehicle inside the Garage. We were able to have a technician out to their house within about an hour and were able to repair the door and get their family back on the road to continue with their holiday plans. Whether it is an emergency service call or just your run of the mill tune up, Garage Door Repair Company can guarantee same day Emergency Repair Services.
How often are you thinking to yourself, I wonder if my Garage Door is going to break down today? Probably never, right? A lot of Garage Door Repairs happen without any kind of notice and can really screw up your whole day. Garage Door Repair Company always guarantees same day service on any repairs; in Stillwater, MN we had a customer’s torsion spring break and they could not get out of their Garage’s second stall. We were able to have an experienced technician on site within two hours of their phone call and not only were we able to repair their broken spring but also provide a replacement for their main Garage Door. Torsion Springs are rated in cycles and both doors had been installed at the same time so we knew that the springs on the main door could go at any point and rather than wait and have another inconvenience we were able to solve that problem before it ever happened and now this customer won’t have to wonder if their Garage Door will break down any time soon.
When you buy a brand new home that was just built within the last few years you are thinking that everything should be working properly for years to come because you bought brand new. However, many of our customers are finding that in these new neighborhoods the builders may have tried to cut costs on the little things such as the Spring System for your Garage Door. In Woodbury, MN we found an entire neighborhood that was built by the same building company and they cut corners on every Garage with a sub-par spring system that has a lot of cheap and plastic parts. While this system will work for a few years, when it does break down the cost of repair can be outrageous because it requires replacing the entire system or performing a Torsion Conversion.
If there is one thing that is most certainly not a do it yourself project, it would have to be garage door spring replacement. We recently serviced a customer in the Apple Valley area who had this issue. She expressed how hard it was for them to even open the garage door manually and how she ended up throwing out her back. When a garage door spring breaks you are losing the counter balance that the spring provides. Garage Doors can weigh in excess of 300lbs,
