Living in Florida means having to live with the fact that you will have to deal with living in a state that is prone to hurricane interaction. With this fact, you will have to make sure that your home is ready to face off against a hurricane hitting it potentially. With that, here are some things to take into account when it comes to knowing if your garage door is ready for the eventuality of getting hit by a hurricane.
Is It Ready?
Worst Case Scenario
When it comes to the absolute worst things that can happen to your garage door, there are a couple of things to consider:
– Your garage door being blown in.
– Garage door being knocked off of its tracks.
– With debris breaking through your garage door.
Any of these issues can lead to the contents being housed within your garage to be potentially damaged beyond recovery.
How to Avoid This
No one wants to have their garage door collapse and lead to their property being destroyed in the process. So how can we avoid such a thing from happening?
If you do not already have them installed, have your garage door outfitted with reinforcement struts. These are the horizontal bars used to help strengthen your garage door against strong winds. This will aid in making sure that it cannot merely be crumpled in with those hurricane-level winds.
With the environmental damage your garage door suffers all year long, it is essential to be up to date in knowing if it is in need of repairs or replacement. Heading into a hurricane with an unreliable garage door is a sure-fire way of losing a garage filled with your things.
