Minneapolis Garage Door Hinge ReplacementWe all have heard what a noisy garage door sounds like. Very few of us actually take the noise for what it is, a sign that something is failing on your garage door. Many homeowners think that the garage door is supposed to make noise which is true, but if you are hearing loud squeaking, popping, banging or grinding these are signs that something is not functioning properly. This was recently the case for one of our Minneapolis, MN customers. This customer initially called stating that the garage doors were starting to make a grinding noise, and requested for us to come out and perform a tune up on his two garage doors. Upon arrival it was obvious to the technician what was causing the issue. The rollers in both garage doors were worn out and the hinges in return were cracking and pulling away from the garage door. After going over all the options with the Minneapolis homeowner, he elected to replace all the rollers and hinges on both garage doors.

What causes Garage Door Rollers to make Noise?

When you are operating your garage door and you hear grinding or squealing, often times it is due to the garage door rollers. This is a result of the ball bearings inside the roller either getting corroded with rust and dirt, or just being at the end of their life cycle. Many customers often overlook these issues as a result causing further damage to the garage door. Here are some examples of other issues that can occur by running your garage door with worn out rollers.New garage door hinge Minnesota

These issues can be avoided with proper garage door maintenance and inspections. If you notice your garage door is making noises that are new or just seems to be running louder than normal.

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
