Garage Door Spring RepairThe garage door may not be a miracle of engineering like the airplane, but it is quite remarkable in its own way. The frame that supports your garage door as it moves along its tracks when you open and close it is fairly simple and minimalistic. What that means is that a minimal amount of material is used to attach to the ceiling and/or walls of your garage so that the weight of the garage door itself, but so that the mechanisms do not dominate the space. When something goes wrong with your garage door springs, Rise & Shine Garage Doors is equipped to respond quickly and fix the problem correctly.

Importance of a Garage Door Spring

Many problems with garage doors are related to the spring that is installed on the inside front end of the opening to your garage. If you have ever unhooked your garage door from the mechanism that opens and closes it at the push of a button and lifted it open by hand, you might have been surprised by how light it felt. While that feeling of lightness is not exactly an illusion—it is physics at work—it does allow you to lift and close the garage door by hand with little effort. That is as a result of your garage door spring. That simple coil of thick metal wire holds most of the weight of your garage door, and it works in conjunction with the motor that makes it move. Without the spring, the motor would have to be much larger, making most garage doors impractical for most homeowners. Fortunately, though, the right balance was struck by garage door manufacturers, so we are able to enjoy the comforts and safety provided by the modern garage door.

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
