How to Reinforce Your Garage Door For a Storm

Many areas of the United States have undergone severe weather this year. We’ve seen everything from hurricanes to snowstorms and the extreme weather keeps coming. Maybe you are a home that encountered something like that this year. If so, how did your garage door hold up? If you are in an area expecting a storm, here’s what you can do to reinforce your garage door.

How to Reinforce Your Garage Door For Bad Weather

Don’t wait to reinforce your door. You need to put things in place now so that your home is protected from extreme weather. There are some things you can do right before a storm, but many you can do as a permanent solution.

Here are things you can do to get it ready:

1. Install Weather Stripping

To keep rain out of your garage, you need to install new seals around the door. Weather stripping is very important when it comes to having a dry garage. Also, it is a form of insulation from the extreme heat or cold.

It would be helpful for you to replace your existing seals with new stripping. Over time, the old seals will become cracked and dried out by the sun. To keep your home protected, install new weather stripping.

2. Tighten Up Hardware

Take the necessary tool and go around to tighten up all of the hardware. The vibrations of the door operations can cause the parts to become loose. By tightening the nuts, bolts, hinges, and etc. you are making the door stronger.

3. Add Support Brackets

For those that live in high wind areas or are expecting a major storm system, support brackets are key. These can be installed last minute before the storm arrives. However, if you want to have a permanent solution, support brackets can be installed ahead of time. There are specific brackets that are meant to be permanent.

4. Replace Insulation

If you have an older door, the insulation may need to be replaced. If you do not have insulation at all, it would be a good idea to add it. Insulation keeps your garage from being as affected by the weather. Also, it makes the door stronger and able to stand up against high winds and debris.

5. Consider a New Door

Depending on how old your door is, or its condition, installing something new may be the best route to go. Our technicians will professionally install any make or model you chose. We can help you pick out the best design and function for your home.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
