Garage Door Torsion Conversion Process

When you buy a brand new home that was just built within the last few years you are thinking that everything should be working properly for years to come because you bought brand new. However, many of our customers are finding that in these new neighborhoods the builders may have tried to cut costs on the little things such as the Spring System for your Garage Door. In Woodbury, MN we found an entire neighborhood that was built by the same building company and they cut corners on every Garage with a sub-par spring system that has a lot of cheap and plastic parts. While this system will work for a few years, when it does break down the cost of repair can be outrageous because it requires replacing the entire system or performing a Torsion Conversion.

What is a Torsion Conversion?

There are a lot of different types of systems that can be used for your Garage Door; extension springs, torque master, easy wind, roll up springs, and a standard torsion system. At Rise & Shine Garage Doors we can provide repairs or replacements for all of these systems but the most recommended system is a standard torsion system. The benefit of this system is that if something breaks you only need to repair that component rather than having to replace the whole system. Here are some components that go in to a standard torsion system:

  • Steel Shaft
  • Steel Drums
  • End Bearings/Center Bearing
  • Center Plate
  • Torsion Springs
  • Galvanized Cables

All of our technicians will have all of these components on the truck to help solve any of your Garage Door Repair needs.

Choosing the Right System First

The biggest reason to choose the right system first is for cost; it can be very expensive to convert or replace your system. That’s why we always install standard torsion systems with every new Garage Door we install. You may not always be able to choose what system you end up with when you purchase a new home but Rise & Shine Garage Doors will help keep your system going or make sure you have the right system for the future.

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
