Signs I Might Need to Replace my Garage DoorIf your garage door is no longer working or is making unusual noises, especially if it is original with your house, you may be concerned that it is time to replace it. Before you get ahead of yourself, here are some of the most common signs that a garage door may be reaching its limit:

1. Sagging, cracked or rotted wood: This is one of the most common reasons that homeowners find that they need to replace their garage door. When the wood is damaged it is difficult to replace it without replacing the full door.
2. Damaged door: If your garage door has sustained recent damage it may be time to replace it. A vehicle hitting a garage door happens much more often than you might think!
3. Old age: Generally, your garage door can be expected to last about thirty years. If your garage door is that age (or older) you may want to think about replacing it rather than investing money in repairs.
4. Noises: If your garage door is making loud noises that are new (grinding, vibration, etc.) then you should have it evaluated for a repair or replacement. The team at Rise & Shine Garage Doors can help you make the best decision given your circumstances.
5. Improve overall curb appeal: If you are considering an exterior home makeover, whether that include new paint, a roof or exterior siding, you may want to also upgrade your garage door. This can add an entirely new and polished look to your home without breaking the bank.

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
