Garage Doors Goffstown NH

The garage door is the largest entry into your home and potentially the weakest spot during a hurricane or tornado. In fact, approximately 80 percent of residential hurricane wind damage starts with entry through garage doors, according to the Federal Alliance for Safe Homes ( http://www.flash.org ). So what can be done? A number of manufacturers are addressing the issue by offering garage doors.

The garage door is the largest entry into your home and potentially the weakest spot during a hurricane or tornado. In fact, approximately 80 percent of residential hurricane wind damage starts with entry through garage doors, according to the Federal Alliance for Safe Homes ( http://www.flash.org ).

So what can be done? A number of manufacturers are addressing the issue by offering garage doors with upgraded frames and hardware so they can stand up to a hurricane's fierce winds. For instance, Designer Doors, based in River Falls, Wis., offers a Severe Weather package that enables the company's wooden garage doors to withstand wind speeds of up to 120 mph, as well as a Hurricane Hardware package that enables the doors to endure 140-mph wind-load capacities.

To improve the structural strength of its garage doors, the company uses commercial-grade mounting hardware and upgraded hinges, and for its Hurricane Hardware package, a solid Douglas Fir frame that provides natural rigidity. The doors are strong enough to meet hurricane code requirements in Miami-Dade County, Fla.

While Designer Doors is the only company to offer custom wood doors to meet those requirements, other companies, such as Plantation, Fla.-based Secure Door and Vonore, Tenn.-based HĦrmann USA, make steel garage doors that are able to withstand hurricane forces. All are designed to look good on your home while providing enhanced strength and security.
