Importance of Regular Garage Door MaintenanceThink about just how many times you open and close your garage door each day…each week…and each month. You may open it to drive your car(s) in and out, to access recreational equipment, your lawn mower. You also may use your garage to store kids’ items, holiday decorations and many other things that simply do not have a perfect home inside. Over time, all of this use adds up and requires all parts of your garage door to remain in good working order. Routine maintenance is a way to keep your garage door working when you need it and the team at Rise & Shine Garage Doors can help.

Annual Garage Door Maintenance

Routine garage door maintenance has many benefits. First, it can save you a significant amount of money over time. Making sure that the main components of your garage door are working correctly can prevent a major problem down the road. In addition, regular maintenance can actually extend the life of your garage door and can protect you from having an unexpected issue with a complete failure of your garage door. Our crew follows a comprehensive checklist when we come out to your home:

  • Open and close the door looking for any major issues
  • Check for rust or corrosion on all door parts
  • Check all nuts and bolts and tighten if necessary
  • Check roller bearings, center bearings and end bearings
  • Inspect the tracks to be sure that there are no obstructions
  • Inspect and adjust alignment of the door’s track and make adjustments
  • Check the spring balance of the door and make adjustment to the tension of the torsion spring
  • Check weather seals
  • Lubricate all garage door parts annually
  • Check the chain or belt of the opener for functionality
  • Check safety sensor
  • Test safety of the garage door opener

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
