You may notice that we have recently made a name change. We felt that our previous name (The Garage Door Repair Company) did not allow us to stand out as much as we wanted from our local competition. So, we have made a change that we think better reflects our mission, our goals and our commitment to service. Rise & Shine Garage Doors is still your one-stop-shop for garage door maintenance and repair in the Twin Cities Metro area. We still offer high quality garage door repairs, routine maintenance and even garage door replacement and installation. Our staff remains the same friendly, professional and responsive team that is committed to helping you when you need it. Our new name now better reflects what we do every single day.
Your front door may be the door you use to welcome your guests to your home, but your garage door is likely used just as much (or even more) for all kinds of other things. You may use it to enter and exit multiple times a day with groceries, your kids, and/or pets. You may use it to store your lawn mower, holiday decorations, and it is perhaps most often used to park your vehicle when it is not in use. Some estimate that your garage door is opened and closed more than three times each day and over 1500 times each year and more than half of homeowners with a garage door use it more frequently to enter/exit their home than any other door.
Garages can be used for many different things. One of the most important functions of a garage is to provide added security. Your garage door is heavy and when it is closed and locked in position, it is nearly impossible to open. So, if you own a home with a garage, you likely rely on your garage as an added safety measure. You can push the garage door opener from inside your car, and drive inside, turn the car off and close the garage and have a private entry into your home at any time of the day or night. In addition, this can make it easier to move sleeping kids inside or bring in your groceries. You can do this without concern for your safety.
Home repairs are never fun, and they never seem to come at an opportune time. Whether you are trying to leave home for a work meeting or a vacation or you have already spent money on a recent car repair and do not have money for a home repair in the budget, it is easy to get frustrated and overwhelmed. Fortunately, garage doors are not normally the source of the stress, as they may go many years without needing to be repaired. But, when you find that you have a problem with your garage door…
Just like any other major home appliance, your garage door needs routine care and maintenance in order to work properly. Garage door repairs can range for very minor to major–and the team at Rise & Shine Garage Doors specializes in helping homeowners when the repairs require professional assistance. If you are in doubt, we always recommend that you give us a call before trying a repair that you are not comfortable with. But there are times when you can troubleshoot before giving us a call. Here are some basic garage door repair tips to try yourself before
When the weather warms up, it means that many of us spend more time outside. That may mean that you get out items from the garage to use more often — bikes, strollers, sporting equipment, lawn chairs, and cornhole. We also tend to drive more in the summertime with more daylight hours. If you own a home with a garage, it is really important that it functions in the summertime. No one wants to be fighting with a garage door during the summer months. Rise & Shine Garage Doors can come out and…
Most of the time when you push the button on your garage door opener, you never even consider the possibility that it might not work. We open and close the garage door multiple times a day without a thought. Until the one time that it does not work – then what? You are stuck…if you are lucky, your door gets stuck closed without your car inside, so you have some time to think about a repair. But, let’s face it, we are not always lucky. If your garage suddenly stops working and you need to get what is inside out…
Think about just how many times you open and close your garage door each day…each week…and each month. You may open it to drive your car(s) in and out, to access recreational equipment, your lawn mower. You also may use your garage to store kids’ items, holiday decorations and many other things that simply do not have a perfect home inside. Over time, all of this use adds up and requires all parts of your garage door to remain in good working order. Routine maintenance is a way to keep your garage door working when you need it and the team at Rise & Shine Garage Doors can help.
Your automobiles are one of your most valuable investments. Second to your home, you spend hours of your time in them, and they are responsible for getting you to your job, to the grocery store, doctor’s office and pharmacy
When you purchased your home, one of the determining factors that pushed you toward the home you bought may have been the garage. Homes with garages are in high demand and have a higher resale value than homes without garages. In fact, more than 80 million homes in the US have a garage door. They are used to store and protect your vehicles, lawn equipment, children’s toys, bikes, exercise equipment, holiday decorations and much more
