The Importance of Being Prepared

The Importance of Being Prepared

 

Hurricane Matthew was an eye opening storm for the East Coast. Luckily we have the technology to know when a storm is coming and have time to prepare. Being the largest Garage Door company in Florida, we receive a lot of service calls regarding maintaining the operations of your Garage Door. This is an important and vital issue amongst homeowners, especially during hurricane season. Service calls like these should not wait until a storm is coming. As homeowners you should be scheduling at minimum a yearly check up on your door so you are ready and prepared when a storm is near.

 

Scheduling your yearly maintenance assures that you learn how you can easily open or close your garage door if power is lost and that you understand how to manually disengage the operator from your door so it can be opened manually. We can also install a removable wind load post that can easily be attached in storm situations. The removable windload posts should be engaged for winds in excess of 75 mph winds. Our Service Technicians can go over how to attach the wind load post during installment so you are ready and prepared when a storm comes our way. With a yearly maintenance, our highly skilled Service Technicians can go over all the operations of your door at the time of service, so that you are prepared for such situations. The maintenance on your door will increase the longevity of your door, too.

 

It is also important to be prepared with the right garage door and make sure it is up to current wind code standards and an impact-rated garage door as well. Our team can assist you in selecting a garage door that fits your budget and design preference, but can also keep your family safe during these nasty Florida storms. We offer a wide variety of hurricane impact rated garage doors, for both commercial and residential application. We have many door designs of insulated and uninsulated doors, both have Florida and/or Miami-Dade approval, with various wind load ratings, to meet the requirements of the many municipal and county building departments. In order to obtain the Miami-Dade certification, our garage doors have to be tested and pass the toughest test requirements in the country. Be prepared by protecting the largest opening in your home. Not only will it increase the safety of your home, but it will also enhance the beauty and value.
Our office staff as well as service technicians in the field are here to answer questions and assist in the service of your garage doors and operators. Give us a call to schedule your yearly maintenance!
