Why You Should Make Your Garage Door Hurricane Ready

  •   Comments Off on Why You Should Make Your Garage Door Hurricane Ready

Garage Door Services of Stamford Connecticut knows that making your garage door ready for hurricane weather is an essential part of your storm preparedness. Most people think that you only need to get your garage door ready for this kind of a storm if you live by the ocean or in a nearby coastal area, however this is actually not true. Hurricane ready doors are reinforced and they protect against wind as well as wind-blown debris.

Recent studies have shown that tornado and tropical storm damage have broader damage radius than we think, it doesn’t just affect the immediate area but it can also affect the surrounding area as well. Seeing as how in most cases the garage door covers the biggest area that means that it is the largest guard and protector of debris being blown around from a storm of any kind. Your garage door also protects the wind from getting up inside the garage which has the potential to create a destructive lift that can actually cause the entire building to collapse.

The Raynor Reinforcing System

The Raynor system is a horizontal box that is made to handle the pressures as well as the strength ratings that are required of the garage door without making the door too heavy. Raynor reinforced doors are actually about 50% lighter than other hurricane rated doors out there, this makes the Raynor system doors more user friendly and also easier to pair with the conventional garage door openers.

Another great thing about having a lighter garage door is that it can easily be installed by one person. This will also help to make your wind-rated garage door a lot more cost effective for a wider range of other products.

Drop -In Vertical Posts

Install Garage Door Reinforcement

If you are in a hurricane zone or maybe you would like some added measures of protection against high winds and bad storms the Raynor drop-in posts are great. Raynor offers a vertical post system that you can insert into your garage door when storm warnings are issued and you need to start preparing for a bad storm.

Similar to deploying storm precautions such as storm screens and shutters on your windows before any bad storm or before you plan to leave the home for an extended amount of time, these posts can also become a part of your storm precautions. These vertical posts clip tightly to the header of your overhead door as well as to the floor. While this system is optional it may give some extra peace of mind to the homeowner who wants the best storm protection available for their garage door.

Keep Damage From Occurring to Your Garage Door During Storms

Garage Door Services of Stamford Connecticut understands that when it comes to your home and your belongings that you want the best protection that there is available. The Raynor systems can give you some of the best added storm protection available. We hope that you have found this information helpful to your storm readiness plan.

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.
