Choosing The Right Commercial Garage DoorChoosing and purchasing the correct commercial-grade garage door for your business is a big step toward protecting your investment. When you take the time to select a high-quality garage door, you are investing in your business’s external appearance, as well as its security and productivity. Understanding the different types of commercial garage doors — both what they’re made of and how they work — will help you to choose the one that will be best for your business.

Available Types Of Commercial Garage Doors

To select the door that’s the best for your business, you first need to think about how the door will be used. You won’t be able to narrow down your options until you ask yourself these four questions:

How will the door function? – Consider whether it will be operating several times a day, and whether equipment or shipments need to be unloaded.
What requirements will the door have to conform to? – Many commercial garage doors are dictated by local commercial building codes, and requirements set forth by the National Fire Protection Association and the Americans with Disabilities Act.
What spending limit is available? – Consider costs of designs and various materials, installation costs, as well as extras that might not be included with the door, such as an automatic opener.

Next, consider the features of the door that you’d like

Once you have a clear picture in your head of how your door will function and what your building codes require, then you can begin to explore your options.

Overhead/sectional doors – designed to be raised to the ceiling on tracks using rollers where the door either remains in a vertical position or parallel to the ceiling.
Roll-up sheet doors – takes up less space and leaves the ceiling of the building open and free from obstruction.
Fire-rated doors – designed to keep a fire from spreading through a facility by breaking a building into compartments that prevent the spread of flames and smoke.
High Speed doors – minimized door-open time, helping to cut energy costs.
Aluminum and glass doors – a great option for restaurants, service stations, fire stations or car dealerships for their modern vibe and ability to showcase the view.
Insulated doors – designed to keep heat inside in the winter and cool air in place in the summer.
Service doors – typically made from steel or aluminum and work by coiling up. Often seen around loading docks, warehouses, or storage facilities.

Lastly Consider The Finer Details

Once you understand which doors are out there, you can narrow down your list. Evaluate door choices for appearance, durability, operation, initial cost, cost of maintenance, and energy efficiency.

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 Rise & Shine Garage Doors 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. Rise & Shine Garage Doors 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
