“Wind pressure is often the most devastating culprit in a hurricane. A category 3 hurricane with winds of 130 mph exerts pressures equivalent to the weight of a typical family car on a two-car garage door.”
— Dr. Steve Lyons, Hurricane Expert, The Weather Channel
FACT: About 80% of residential wind damage starts with wind entry through the garage door
FACT: Less than 30% of homes in hurricane prone areas have adequate garage door wind load reinforcement systems
FACT: Fewer than 50% of consumers in hurricane prone areas know that their garage doors are required to meet building code criteria for wind pressures
FACT: Winds can stay above hurricane strength many miles inland. Hurricane Hugo (1989) battered Charlotte, North Carolina—about 175 miles inland—with gusts to near 100 mph
Many homeowners fail to take the crucial extra step needed to prepare their homes – reinforcing their garage door, the largest opening in a home and a likely entry point for potentially devastating wind.
Experts state that if garage doors fail, high winds can enter a home through the garage and blow out doors, windows, walls, and even the roof.
