Winter Garage Door Tune-up Checklist

When you choose our skilled technicians for your winter garage door tune-up, you are choosing the best partner around. We never miss an inch during inspection and will thoroughly inspect all areas for any potential issues. When inspecting your garage, we look for the following:

● Rust on any of the garage parts.
● Loose bolts or nuts we need to tighten or replace.
● Check alignment for the track and make adjustments if needed.
● Ensure that the roller ball bearings, end bearings and center bearings are all working properly.
● Check the spring balance and adjust any torsion spring tension.
● Check the safety sensors and verify any garage door opener limits
● Areas to lubricate (rollers, pulleys, and the entire drive system).
● Make adjustments to any electric door openers as needed.
● Tighten the chain or belt and adjust as needed.
● Examine batteries for keypad and remotes.
● Inspect the garage door bottom seal and weather stripping.
● Perform an opener safety test to ensure all parts are working properly.

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
