Garage Door Repair Tips And Tricks In MNWhen something has gone array with your garage door, it can be a daunting thought. Since most of us use our garage every single day, it can be super inconvenient when it’s not working. At Rise & Shine Garage Doors, we don’t want you to panic. Before you have to call our professionals, we can help you try to navigate smaller repair issues right at the moment! Here are our top tips and tricks for when something isn’t quite right with your garage door. Of Course, if you prefer to have us handle it just give us a call.

Does Your Unit Have Power?

Believe it or not, we have been called out to several homes with the complaint that the owner’s garage door is not working at all. After minimal investigation, it’s discovered their garage system is completely intact, but the power was disconnected. To prevent this, be sure to check your breaker as someone may have accidentally flipped a switch and cut your power.

Is The Battery Working?

When you open and close your garage, it’s most likely controlled by a mounted keypad or a remote operator. Are the batteries working in those? Does it need a replacement? Replacing the batteries on the keypad is a step that is often missed! Find out if yours needs a battery and keep a spare in your closet!

Is The Opener Locked?

Believe it or not, garage door openers can have a lock mechanism. If you have your instructional guide, take a look! There is a lock feature on some garage door openers that could be preventing your door from opening or closing. Typically, a light will flicker, and you will need to hold down the bottom the entire time to fix it. The best way to fix this problem is to check out your manual!

Is It Your Wires?

For your garage door, there are always wires that connect the sensors and the main garage door unit. Since your garage is a transitional space that is both outside and inside, it’s not uncommon to see that these wires have been compromised. Whether someone damaged them in an accident, or a critter chewed on them, you can easily give them a quick check to see if they are intact.

Are The Sensors Okay?

Garages done in the last 10 years not all have sensors placed on them. If your sensors are out of alignment or something happens to be in their way, your garage door will not come down. So, before you call anyone, check to make sure that both sensors are lined up with each other. Check to make sure that they are clean, and nothing is in their way!

Lastly, if all else fails, please call our professionals. We will quickly come out and take a look at your issues. Our expert professionals will ensure that your garage is repaired and functioning in a timely manner. Afterall, no one wants broken garage door stress onto their shoulders.

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
