Emergency Garage Door Repair Service in Minneapolis, MN

Green Farms Rd Minneapolis, MN, US, 55436


TC Garage Door Repair & Locksmith Services is proud to announce that we have successfully repaired a garage door on Green Farms Rd, MN.


Emergencies happen at any time and most of the time it isn't our fault. In this case, our client had an elderly neighbor crash into his garage door. Although our client was not determined to press charges, his neighbor insisted that he would call a reputable garage door company to fix it. 


Once we arrived at the scene shortly after, we inspected the damage and there were no serious ones to the components except for the panels and the torsion springs. Having replaced both of the problems, the client was thankful to us and his neighbor.

Panel and Spring Replacement For Garage Doors

Replacing a panel is best left to the professionals. As is the case for our client, we advised him to replace the whole panel for his garage door since his garage door panels were seriously damaged by the crash. Though it would seem it is costly, it is a much better decision. Since it is twenty years old, bent, and deformed, replacement is a wiser decision than repairing it.


When we replaced his entire garage door panels, there didn’t seem to be any damage to any internal mechanisms and such except for the torsion springs. That part is what tightens the door when closed and unwinds when opening. When your garage door springs are damaged, you can't manually lift them or if you can, then it's certain it will be heavier than normal. Sure you can temporarily fix it, but hiring a professional is a wiser choice and will save you money down the road.

How can you fix a broken garage door spring temporarily?

As we have mentioned above, you can definitely fix a broken garage door spring temporarily. When you're trying to get your car out of the garage and you hear that awful sound—the spring is broken. But what do you do? The first thing you can do is call a professional. However, if you're in a rush or don't want to pay for the service, there are some temporary fixes.


Welding two or three springs together will allow the door to open and close but it has an indefinite amount of time before it snaps and breaks. You can also purchase temporary spring repair blocks, these are tools designed to securely hold both ends of your broken springs, allowing for easy opening and closing of a garage door. However, this is only useful for emergencies such as needing to get your car out for work and such. When it comes to using a garage door, safety is the main concern. A malfunctioning garage door can cause accidents and even damage your vehicle. Replacing or fixing a garage door spring protects everyone's safety. That's why contacting TC Garage Door Repair & Locksmith Services for all of your garage door needs is the ideal option!

Can I still use my garage door with a broken spring?

The short answer is yes. We've recently tackled this topic in our previous post so be sure to check that out for an extensive answer. You can still use your garage door even with a broken spring. It's just going to sound like a banshee when you open it. You can still lift the door manually and even drive in and out of your garage, but be aware of the loud noises. It's probably not safe for you to do this every single day, though—it can be risky. 

By calling us at TC Garage Door Repair & Locksmith Services, you can get the issue resolved! We'll come out to your place, assess the situation, and repair or replace your springs if they're broken or worn out. If we don't have any parts on hand (which we almost always do), then we'll order them as soon as possible so you're not left without a working garage door for long!

Here are some reasons why you might need your garage door fixed urgently

As you probably know, garage door repairs can be a huge hassle, especially if you're car is parked in the garage and you need to go to work. You can't be late on a Monday but there's no choice, right? Wrong! As we provided quick and service for our previous client, we can provide the same for you as well! We can get the job done quickly and efficiently, without draining your pockets. We can help you out with any garage door repair service that you might need. You don't have to worry about anything; just sit back and relax while we sort it out.

Here are some reasons why you might need your garage door fixed urgently:

  • A spring breaks or snaps. If this happens, it's important to get the spring replaced as soon as possible because it could cause serious damage if left unattended for too long.
  • The motor fails. This is another reason homeowners must have their garage doors inspected regularly—the last thing anyone wants is for their motor to break down! If this happens, we'll come out immediately and get everything up-to-date so that things can run smoothly again.
  • Cables go out of place sometimes due to wear and tear over time, but luckily our technicians know how to fix these issues quickly so that there isn't much downtime before getting back into normal operations again!
  • If a roller comes out of place, the door will lose its balance and fall suddenly. This is a very dangerous situation because it can cause serious injury to people and damage to property below it.
  • If a section on your garage doors is damaged, then that section will be unable to hold up the weight of other sections around it, which can lead to serious injuries when those sections suddenly fall off.
  • If your garage door is off track, then it won't be able to move up or down properly, which will prevent you from being able to open or close it.
