Reinforced Garage Doors Help Protect Your Home During High Winds
Garage doors play a critical role in protecting your home, especially if you live in a hurricane prone or high wind regions. If you do not have a tested, wind-rated door, high winds can force it out of the opening, causing an uncontrolled buildup of internal pressure and ultimately a blowout of your home's roof and supporting walls.
The adoption of the International Building Code (IBC) means wind load is no longer an issue exclusive to Florida and other hurricane hot spots.
States like Kansas, Missouri, Utah, Nevada and California also have windload reinforcement requirements for garage doors because of wind speeds related to the terrain and weather in those regions.
