Garage Door Information and Resources

Garage Door Security and Home Security

The door leading from the garage to the home is the most common entry-point to the house. Thefts and break-ins most commonly begin through the garage. Make sure your garage door is always secure with these tips and new technologies.

Garage Door and Opener Safety and Liability

If your opener was built before 1992, or isn’t equipped with an electronic reversing system, you could be liable for any accidents that might occur with a non-compliant opener. Safety sensors and reversing systems aren’t just good safety measures, they are required by law.

Be in compliance


When to Call a Technician

For your safety, don’t ever try to manually move, repair, or adjust a broken garage door or its parts. The garage door is the largest and heaviest moving object in your home. Weighing hundreds of pounds, with springs carrying those pounds under tension, the door and its components could cause lacerations, pinching, or crushing.

What People Are Saying About Metro Garage Doors

Top Rated Garage Door Company in Minneapolis – St. Paul, but don’t take our word for it…
Very happy experiences with Metro Door. We've used them before, to install a new opener and for repairs from backing into the door. Always prompt, professional, friendly, and reasonably priced. This time, we needed to replace a 30-year-old opener on our seldom-used small door. After analyzing our situation, the technician, Randy, provided a much better strategy -- moving the 5-year-old opener to the small door and installing the new opener on the big door (the one we use all the time). This also allowed us to install a really quiet belt-driven opener on the big door. Thanks Randy! Great experience all around.

I had a new garage door installed. My initial garage door had a weird problem -- it opened by itself! Our technician came out and was just fantastic. He replaced the opener (the maker of the opener, for instance, tried to send me a part that I could replace on a week-old opener). They fully replaced the opener and the wire and it works great. And Randy was exceedingly professional and helped me understand everything. Great service.

Outstanding service and great pricing! My garage door flipped out and luckily someone referred me to this firm. From the minute they answered my call until the door was fixed, they were simply great. Very prompt, courteous and very trustworthy. The tech was Dana and he was just wonderful answering all my questions and making excellent suggestions. The door has never operated so well and so quiet!. Thanks again for a great job.
