LM opWe often take the ability to operate our garage doors from our cars for granted. It is not until a homeowner has a Malfunctioning Garage Door that they realize just how much convenience this adds to their day to day lives. When you have to get out of your car to open and close your garage door by hand you may come to find this is not something you want to do every day. This was recently the case for one of our Bloomington, MN customers. This customer had an old Genie Garage Door Opener that had stopped working all together. It was determined that the logic board on the opener had fried. Due to the age of the opener, it was decided that Full Garage Door Opener Replacement was the most cost effective option. This is where Rise & Shine Garage Doors was able to provide the homeowner with options on replacement. One of our technicians quickly replaced the old opener with a LiftMaster Professional Chain Drive Opener. Upon completion of the job, the door was running much smoother and more quiet than the previous machine.

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

Rise & Shine Garage Doors Team
