When a hurricane is headed toward Florida, homeowners begin making preparations to protect their homes. The two biggest concerns are water and wind infiltration. To protect against wind damage, many will cover their windows, but most are not aware that the garage door is the weakest point for wind to enter the structure and wreak havoc. In fact, the Federal Alliance for Safe Homes has estimated that 80% of wind damage to homes during hurricanes begins at the garage door.
Hurricane garage doors in Florida are a necessity. Because they are such an important factor in protecting your home, you need a garage door company that you can trust. Overhead Door has been serving the Tampa area for over 60 years. That long-standing commitment to the area means that we have a wealth of experience with hurricanes and installing hurricane resistant garage doors in Florida. We have the expertise to ensure that the tracks, which are a necessary line of defense, are installed properly. And we can install vertical braces that give you added protection.
We’ve seen plenty of information on the internet that suggests you can install a garage door yourself. What these websites do not cover, however, are the essential steps to ensure that you have hurricane-ready garage doors for Florida. Without proper installation, the garage door is susceptible to being demolished by hurricane-force winds. Without the garage door, you’ll likely lose your roof, and that just spells disaster. With so much at stake, it’s simply not worth the risk. At Overhead Door, we can put your mind at ease. Our experienced technicians will properly install your garage door for you, and you can rest easy, knowing that you have a top of the line defense against the punishing winds of a hurricane.
