One of the most common problems with a garage door not opening correctly has to do with the spring. Your garage door spring, when working correctly, twists to counterbalance the force that is needed to open your garage door safely and easily. If your garage door spring is broken, it will be unable to tighten up on the way down, causing the door not to be able to lift up. What does this mean for you? You may assume that your entire garage door or operating system is broken, but it may be much simpler–a broken spring. Rise & Shine Garage Doors can determine whether the problem you are having is related to an issue with the spring, or other part of the door, and make the necessary repairs quickly, so that you can move on with your day!
It’s that moment when you go to open your garage door and it suddenly no longer works. Perhaps it’s simply not opening or perhaps it’s barely making it halfway. Either way, it sounds like a spring may be loose. At Rise & Shine Garage Doors, we are here to help you with all of your garage spring repair needs in Minnesota.
To understand the importance of garage spring
The garage door may not be a miracle of engineering like the airplane, but it is quite remarkable in its own way. The frame that supports your garage door as it moves along its tracks when you open and close it is fairly simple and minimalistic. What that means is that a minimal amount of material is used to attach to the ceiling and/or walls of your garage so that the weight of the garage door itself, but so that the mechanisms do not dominate the space.

There are some common repairs with Garage Doors and then there are some uncommon repairs with Garage Doors. Broken Springs are probably one of the most common types of repairs that we do with Garage Doors and it can happen to you at any time. In Mendota Heights, MN we had a customer who had just come home from vacation when their spring snapped. Often times it can sound like a gun just went off because there is so much tension on those springs that when they break it can be very dangerous. This is why you always want to trust your Torsion Spring Replacement with an expert. This will ensure that the job is done properly, safely, and you won’t have any other issues in the future. For the Mendota Heights customer we were able to get a technician out immediately after they contacted us and get their Garage Door up and running again within hours.
We are nearing the end of 2016 and winter is just around the corner; even though it is still September, now is the time to start thinking about your Garage Door. Today in West St. Paul we had a customer have their Torsion Spring break a few days ago and wasn’t really in a rush to get it fixed since their car was parked outside. That may be the case right now but as the temperatures begin to drop, as the always do in Minnesota, our customers will start to park inside their Garage and if something does happen you can get stuck inside at the wrong moment. This is where things like our tune up and inspection programs can come in handy to identify and perform preventative maintenance so these things don’t happen.
It is never easy when something breaks down and it is even worse when it happens unexpectedly. It can throw off your entire schedule and if something breaks down late at night you don’t want to have to wait until morning to have it repaired. Especially when the thing that has broken down is your Garage Door or Garage Door Opener. Sometimes the Garage Door can get jammed open due to a broken cable or torsion spring or the Garage Door Opener may stop working and now your door won’t close properly. Rise & Shine Garage Doors offers 24 Hour Repair Service to meet all of your emergency needs. Over in Minneapolis, MN we had a customer that had an issue with their Garage Door Opener happen at the end of the night when they were locking down the house to go to bed. This customer was concerned about leaving the Garage Door open overnight with their cars and valuables exposed. Even though it was 7:30 PM when the initial contact was made we were still able to have a technician out to their residence within an hour. We were able to make the repair and get the customer’s Garage Door closed and locked down for the night.
With the weather finally warming up in Minnesota not many of our customers are thinking about their Garage Door any more. Now is the time where you just want to open up the door, take out the grill and some lawn chairs and maybe have a cold beverage and relax. If you suddenly have a broken torsion spring that could really put a kink in your summer plans especially if it is on a weekend. This was the case for one of our customers over in Vadnais Heights, MN; they were having a graduation party the following day and suddenly had a torsion spring snap. It happened on a Saturday afternoon and the customer was concerned about finding someone to take care of the repair; we were able to have a technician out within two hours of the initial contact to make sure the grad party went off without a hitch.
Has your garage door ever had trouble opening? Perhaps it only goes up a few inches or feet and stops, or maybe it doesn’t open at all. This is most often due to a Broken Garage Door Spring. Garage Door Springs are the lifeblood of the over Garage Door Torsion System; without the springs the garage door would be far too heavy for your opener to lift it. It is not uncommon for garage doors to weigh in excess of 300 lbs. A broken spring was most recently the culprit for one of our Twin City, MN customers. The customer called after trying to leave for work noticing the garage door only opened a couple of inches and stopped.
