When your home is located in an area where storms and hurricanes pass through, it is practical and considered important to storm proof your garage door especially when it is made from a light material such as fiberglass. Here are a few things to do to storm proof your garage door.
Garage doors are usually the ones that are affected first when storms and hurricanes come. If the door gets damaged, your home or garage’s security is threatened since strong winds will force the roof to be torn and other damages ensue. You can protect your garage door by having it braced. Protect the windows as well since strong winds can carry things that may smash against your windows so it is wise to install some protections such as grills on your windows or you can go for shutters. One important thing, when installing a garage door is to make sure that each part is fastened well and the material holds it down since storms and hurricanes will send things flying.
