Quality parts are a veTorsion Spring Systemry important thing when you are considering replacing your Garage Door or repairing your broken spring. You wouldn’t want plastic parts to help lift your Garage Door when the temperatures drop to single digits and below. We all know what the winters can be like here in Minnesota and it is important to have quality materials installed on the largest moving part of your home. That is why it is important to have a Standard Torsion Spring System installed when you purchase a new Garage Door or have your broken spring repaired.


Different Torsion Systems make a Difference

Over in Inver Grove Heights we had a customer that had recently had their Garage Door replaced by another company and they were having some issues they wanted checked over. While we were servicing their door and opener we found that a sub-par spring system had been installed. Some of the different spring systems that are available have a lot of plastic parts and smaller springs. Sometimes the springs are also hidden from view so you, as a customer, can’t even tell if there is a broken spring. This was the case in Inver Grove Heights and we needed to convert it to a standard torsion spring system. At Rise & Shine Garage Doors we always use the highest quality parts that are made from solid steel so that our customers know the repair is going to last.

Parts and Repairs Involved with a Standard Torsion System

Part of the reason why it is so important to make sure you have a Standard Torsion Spring System installed the first time is to save costs down the road. When you go with a sub-par product that has a lot of plastic parts or springs that are hidden from view there is no way to repair them. You have to either replace the entire system or convert it to a standard system. Converting the system is time consuming and expensive; it involves all new steel shaft, drums, end bearings, cables, center bearing, center plate, and new torsion springs. Also if your spring system is hidden from view and you have a broken spring you may continue to run the door as normal and could end up stripping a gear in the Garage Door Opener. To avoid all these costly headaches make sure you have your Garage Door installed the right way the first time.

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
