This past year, many parts of the US were plagued with hurricanes. We saw areas that never get hit have some of the greatest devastation. If you are in an area that got hit, here are a few ways you can take care of your garage door after a hurricane.

Inspect The Damage

Strong winds, rain, and hail can bring a lot of damage to your home. After the flood waters subside and the storm system moves on, it’s time to inspect the damage.

Here are areas you need to check on your garage door for repair needs:


Do any of the panels have dents, scraped paint or other indications of storm damage? Make a full inspection of the outside of your door.

Tracks and Parts

Check the tracks and all mechanical parts to see if any water damage has occurred. Depending on how strong the rains, water could have leaked in and caused a problem on these parts. Look for moisture and rust.


If you had flooding that was high enough to reach your door, then you need to inspect the insulation. When insulation gets wet, it will need to be replaced to stay effective.

Contact Your Insurance Company

After you have accessed the damage done by the storm, contact your insurance company regarding claims. At this point, you will need to determine if your deductible will be higher than the damage. Give us a call so that we can give you a quote on the work.

We will likely need to send one of our certified technicians out to your location for an accurate price. This will help you determine if you can make the claim for the repair work.

Have Maintenance Performed

It is best to perform general maintenance on your door after a storm. If you bring out one of our certified technicians, then they can inspect all of your working parts. They will be able to let you know if there are any parts that need to be replaced.
As part of the maintenance of your garage door, lubrication needs to be applied. It is important to clean the track to make sure there is no standing water or debris before you apply the lubricant. You can use WD-40 or another lubricant that is not oil based.

Consider an Upgrade

If you are in an area that sees a lot of storms throughout the year, it may be time for you to consider an upgrade. There are doors that are designed specifically for wind resistance and can hold up more to hurricanes and storm damage.

We are able to answer all of your questions regarding a new door. Our phone representatives can point you to the online catalog where you can see exactly what is available. Once the new door comes in, our certified technicians will make the installation.

Let Us Help You With Repairs

When your home is hit by hurricanes and major storm systems, do not hesitate to contact us. We will get someone out to you as soon as we can to access the damage and make repairs.

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.
