What Is Wrong With My Garage Door?

What Is Wrong With My Garage DoorWhen your garage door suddenly stops working, you naturally begin to wonder what could be wrong. We all try to diagnose these types of problems in our home, even without the knowledge or expertise to come to a real conclusion. Here are some easy things that you can do yourself to see if the issue with your garage is an easy fix, or if you will need to call a repair company for assistance.

1. Check all batteries: One of the most common issues that can happen with a garage door is that the batteries die in the keypad that is mounted in your garage or in your portable garage door opener. Take the batteries out and replace each of them before you call (and pay) for assistance.
2. Check the sensors: Another very common problem we find is that something is blocking your garage door sensors. If your garage door thinks that something is in its path, it will stop working, as a safety mechanism. Check for children’s toys, brooms, or even dirt, leaves or dust. Take a minute to make sure that there is nothing blocking your sensors before you call for a repair.
3. Is your garage door locked? You can also inadvertently lock your garage door, preventing it from opening and closing. Check the button on your opener by holding it down for 2-3 seconds and see if that unlocks it and is your quick fix.
4. Check your power source: There are also times when your home loses power, or a breaker goes out. This can be another easy fix that does not require a repair company.

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
