Uses For Your Garage

Uses For Your GarageYour garage is a unique space in your home. It is likely not cooled or heated, but it is covered and insulated and can be used for a variety of different things. The most common and obvious use for a garage door is storage. You may choose to store your vehicle in your garage, boxes from a recent move, lawn equipment, holiday decor or baby clothes that you are saving for the future. Garage storage gets these items that you do not use daily out of the way but protects them from the elements.

The best use of your garage space really depends on your unique needs and interests. If you choose not to use your garage for storage, you may be thinking of other ways to utilize this space. Here are some other ideas for putting that space to good use:

1. Workshop: If you enjoy fixing things in your home, or building new things, your garage space may be ideal for your workshop. You can organize and store your tools and you can create a large workspace without taking up precious indoor space. In addition, working in your garage keeps the inside of your home clean.
2. Craft Room: If your passion is arts and crafts or painting, your garage can be perfect as a craft room. It can give you (and your kids!) a space that is all your own where you can be creative and not worry so much about the mess!
3. Additional living space: Another very popular use for the space in your garage is for additional living space. This may take an investment if you need electricity, utilities, heat and AC but if you plan to be in your home for years to come, it may be worth it. Your garage can be transformed into an extra bedroom, office or secondary living space.
4. Event space: If you are into music or movies, you can also consider turning your garage into an event space for gathering together a “garage band” or streaming movies.

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
