Garage Maintenance Before Minnesota WinterThose cold, winter months are the ones when you are most likely to think that you are glad to have a garage. You can pull your car into the garage after a long day at work and know that you will not have to deal with the headache of scraping the ice off in the morning. This can literally save you 10-15 minutes each and every day of the winter. Protecting your car from the harsh Minnesota elements is also a great way to extend the life of your vehicle, it’s paint and even your tires. If your garage is not working properly, now is a great time to get it looked at so you are ready for those winter months.

Importance of Routine Garage Door Maintenance

Winters in Minnesota are extreme. Once the weather turns cold, we do not generally thaw out for months. Your garage may not be climate controlled, but it does keep your car protected from wind and precipitation and keep the engine from that extreme cold. It also saves you from having to walk out onto the slick sidewalk or driveway to climb in and warm up your car on those cold mornings. Garages are a true creature comfort that many of us have gotten used to.

Just like your car, your garage door may need some simple maintenance every now and again to keep it working well throughout the year. Rise & Shine Garage Doors can complete garage door repair, garage door maintenance and even garage door installation. We can make sure that your garage is ready for the winter months. Routine maintenance can include inspecting the door and opener for any issues, checking for rust on all parts of the door, tightening the nuts and bolts on the door, making sure that the garage door track is clear of debris, checking tracking alignment, ball bearings and weather seals, lubricate the moving parts and check the overall safety and balance of the door. We can complete this work quickly, identify any problems and make repairs on the same day. Routine garage door maintenance also helps to prevent more serious problems with your garage door down the road.

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
