old masonite doorWhen is the right time to replace a garage door? This is one of the most common questions we get from our customers. Most recently one of our Minneapolis customers was having this same dilemma. He called us out to take a look at the garage door that had a Broken Torsion Cable. When going over the repair options the customer asked how much it would be to replace the entire garage door, preferably something with windows. The technician went over the best replacement options with the homeowner and they decided the best course of action was to install a New Garage Door. Our customer was really eager to add some natural light into the garage in order to use it as a work space. We were able to install a brand new garage door with cross glass inserts. The finished product not only looks great but will be running smooth for years to come!

Does Adding Glass To A Garage Door Cost More?

As technicians this is a question we are asked daily, and the answer is yes windows are always going to be an extra charge. The reason for this is the higher cost of glass as well as the labor involved in cutting the glass into the sections. However the cost to add glass to a garage door in comparison to how much curb appeal it can add to a home is a minor expense. By adding glass you are not just adding curb appeal, but also natural light that so many garages are lacking. This will help make the garage a great work space.new door cross glass

What Type Of Warranty Options Come With New Doors?

The list is endless for the different amount of warranties on garage doors. Every manufacturer has different specification and warranties. However the typical industry standards are Limited Lifetime Section Warranty, 3 Year Hardware Warranty. At Rise & Shine Garage Doors we are proud to exceed expectations by providing a 5 Year Parts & Labor Warranty on all garage door installations we complete.

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
