Garage Door General Maintenance and Repair

Garage Door General Maintenance and RepairJust like you would choose to see an orthopedic specialist if you break a bone, you should also want a company that specializes in garage door repair to assess a problem with your garage door. A general practice physician may be able to confirm that you have a broken bone, but the actual treatment of it should be performed by a specialist. The Garage Door Repair Company is a specialist too. We specialize in all types of garage door repairs as well as garage door maintenance that can prevent costly repairs.

Broken Garage Door Cable Minneapolis MN

broken cableMost people don’t realize that garage doors are the largest moving mechanical object in the household. Such a large mechanical device should be taken care of accordingly. Unfortunately, this is typically not the case. Recently in Minneapolis MN we ran across a door that was in need of a lot of work. Much of which could have been avoided by proper maintenance and Garage Door Tune Ups. This particular door had an excessive amount of rust, which inevitably worked its way onto the Garage Door Cables. The cables are constantly under immense tension and pressure. They are what hold up the hundreds of pounds of steel, wood or aluminum. As you can imagine it doesn’t take too much rust before the cables start to corrode, fray and eventually snap. When a cable snaps the entire garage door goes crooked, this is due to the spring tension shifting to only one side of the door. This was precisely the case for our Minneapolis customer, however we were able to come out same day and repair this home owner’s door in a matter of hours.

Broken Garage Door Cable in St. Louis Park

cable replacementIt’s not often people take the time to look at their garage door, even if there are warning signs that if noticed can reduce the risk of serious issues. This was recently the case for one of our customers in St Louis Park, Mn. Rust had worked its way onto the Cables of the Garage Door causing them to fray and eventually snap. This in turn caused the door to go crooked and bend track. After the customer called to set up an appointment one of our technicians was able to have the door running like new within 1 hour of the arrival time. We were also able to upgrade the cables from a galvanized to stainless steel, ensuring that they will never rust through again.

Navigating COVID-19

We are still open as an essential business

To our valued customers,

Recent news about COVID-19 is unfortunate for many of our customers and our local businesses. As we continue to learn more about COVID-19 and as other businesses start the Pause phase of the recent Executive Order, our team at Garage Door Repair Company would like to express our concern for all those who have been affected. Our employees and our customers are our top priority , and we are doing everything we can to ensure the health and safety of each.

We have been closely monitoring the situation since it began and fully support all precautions being taken to prevent any further spread of the virus. Garage Door Repair Company has remained open and in full operation as we understand how important it may be to your daily lives to have a fully functional Garage Door. We continue to follow the plan we set in place in March when this pandemic began and will continue to do so. These are the changes we have made to our policies to help prevent the spread:

  • Our technicians will practice social distancing rather than shaking hands at the door.
  • Estimates and repair recommendations will be done remotely or over the phone while our customers stay inside or quarantined.
  • Preferably all payments will be made by credit card rather than by check.
  • We will continue to clean up after ourselves, wash our hands, and use hand sanitizer often.

The nature of our industry allows us a lot of flexibility in these times as most of our technicians are working in one to two man crews which is well under the guidelines that have been laid out before us. We even have the ability to complete all work without any face to face interactions and take payments over the phone.

We thank you for working with us as we navigate this situation.

With kind regards,

Josh Dutcher and Alex Johantgen
