Every single square inch of your home is precious space. This year, when you have likely spent more time in your home, you have probably treasured every bit of extra space. This includes your garage. You may use space in your garage to house your vehicle(s), for extra storage to free up space inside your home, for a “man-cave”, a home office, place for virtual school or even as a place to work out. No matter what you do with this space, you want your garage to operate correctly so that you can fully utilize all of its functionality. The Garage Door Repair Company can help with routine maintenance, garage door repair as well as replacement
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.
The Garage Door is one of the things that should work the same way every day; you push the button on the remote control and the Garage Door Opener turns on and the door begins to open. You pull your car in the Garage and push the wall button and the door begins to close. This process happens more often in the day than most people realize and eventually something will break down. With such a large moving piece of equipment there are a lot of different moving parts and many of these things have a lot of strong tension on them. If you go to push the button on your remote and the door starts going up and suddenly something snaps and the door goes crooked you may have just had a Garage Door Cable break.
