Bent Top Panel

There are a lot more parts that go in to a Garage Door than most of our customers realize and making sure that everything is working properly is very important. This is why it is always important to have a trained certified professional handle all of your Garage Door repairs and installations. In Eagan, MN we had a customer call in that was having issues with the top panel closing all of the way; this was also causing the door to bind when it was opening and closing causing issues with the Garage Door Opener. We were able to have a technician out same day to take a look at what was causing the problem. In this case the customer had an opener installed on their single stall but hired an independent person that was just looking for a side job that didn’t really know what they were doing. They over looked an important part of the Garage Door where the opener was installed; it had started to bend the top panel and cause damage to the entire door. We were able to provide a solution to get the door working again and also pointed out a few other problems so that their door would continue to run smoothly for the upcoming winter and for years to come.

Common Repairs If Your Top Panel Won’t Close

There are many different reasons why your Garage Door might not be closing all of the way; it could be as simple as a few adjustments on your opener or as difficult as reinforcing the entire door and resetting your torsion system. Here are a few different repairs that can be done to get your Garage Door to close all of the way:

  • Reinforcement Struts
  • Limit Adjustments
  • Torsion System Cable Reset
  • Ripped up Bottom Seal
  • Bent Panel

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
