Prepare for Hurricane Season!
It’s hurricane season and should never be taken lightly. It only takes one storm to cause damage that may take months to fix. When severe weather comes, it’s essential that a structure’s windows and doors be able to withstand high winds and extreme pressure changes, so that people are protected and the damage is minimized. Hurricane-force winds are a real threat, from inland tornado-prone areas to windborne debris regions such as ours here in Central Florida.
Your garage door is probably the largest opening in your house and needs to be protected, especially older doors installed before more stringent building codes went into effect.
Preparing yourself and reinforcing this weak spot is always a good idea. If the garage door is blown open, wind enters your home. Once that happens, the damage can be severe, including having the roof ripped off. You have several options to reduce this potential hazard. These range from replacing the door with a newer one designed to withstand winds up to 110 mph to reinforcing the panels.
