New Garage DoorThere are many reasons why you may be thinking of replacing your garage door. Whether it’s because the door is not operating correctly, perhaps the door is rotting or rusting, or it may be just time to update to a new system. This was the case for one of our Excelsior, MN customers. The Garage Door was out of date and our customer was looking to update while adding some curb appeal. Adding windows to the Garage Door is one of the best ways to add curb appeal to a garage door. Along with letting great natural light in, it also adds a distinct look to your home to set you apart from your neighbors. The final product speaks for itself and our homeowner couldn’t be happier with the Garage Door.

Is Garage Door Replacement a Seasonal Project?

It is often presumed that replacing your garage door cannot be completed once the snow flies. At Rise & Shine Garage Doors, we replace Garage Doors year round. Winter can be extremely busy as the cold weather, snow, ice, salt seem to wreak havoc on garage doors. In many cases garage door replacement can often times make more financial sense than repairing your current garage door. Here are some examples of garage doors that may be better off replacing than repairing.

  • Rotting or Rusting Door (If your garage door is rotting or rusting, it may be time to consider replacement)
  • Tilt up Garage Door (Tilt up Garage Doors are a thing of the past, the system is extremely out of date and repairs can be considered no more than a band aid)
  • Extension Springs (If your door has springs that run along the outsides of the horizontal tracking you have extension springs. These springs are extremely dangerous and out of date. If you have this system it is time to consider either a torsion conversion or complete garage door replacement)

When the time comes to replace your garage door, it’s important you hire the right company. Rise & Shine Garage Doors has over 10 years of experience and can handle any type of job. Whether you’re looking to update your out of date garage door or want to go with a custom design we can help! We always offer all our Excelsior customers free onsite estimates. This allows you to find the perfect door for you with no pressure. If you are interested in making an appointment simply call 612-886-9606.

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
