Whether you live in a warm weather or cold weather state, energy costs are something to consider when you are building or upgrading a home. Garage door insulation is a factor that many homeowners do not think about when choosing a new garage door in Covington, Mandeville or in many other regions throughout Louisiana. The year round temperate climate makes it less of a concern than those who live in northern states; however American Garage Door urges you to consider that purchasing a well-insulated garage door can actually save you money.

To explain garage door insulation in layman’s terms, the insulated garage doors can be useful to you in other ways than merely protecting the hot or cold air lost through your garage door areas. Some people think that spending money on insulation for a garage door is unneeded, but over time they may notice a loss of energy through those areas of their home, which can drive up the fuel bill. Especially for those people who use their garage a lot, such as for a workshop or a communal area to socialize with neighbors, or as a place to tinker on toys, etc. Try to remember that garages are more than just a storage spot for your home and a place to park your car.

Throughout the New Orleans Metro area, Slidell, Mandeville, Covington and other communities in Louisiana, this is the busiest time of year for garage doors. Why?

Well, for many residents who enjoy getting their homes up to par in the fall, the reprieve in hot weather or the desire to keep busy after the kids go to school is one reason. For other homeowners in Baton Rouge and New Orleans, it is the fear of hurricane season that initiates the need to repair or replace the garage door. Still another group falls into the category of “safety consciousness”, which is a smart idea with all of the burglaries and thefts that have occurred in the region this past year.

Homes in states like Florida, Louisiana, Texas, Mississippi and Georgia have had a history of being more vulnerable to hurricanes, especially during the latter part of summer and throughout the fall. As we move into the autumn season here in New Orleans, we are still bouncing back nine years later from the after-effects of the most deadliest and destructive Hurricane that slammed into the Gulf of Mexico on that fateful first week of September in 2005. We all remember Hurricane Katrina and just the name Katrina makes us cringe!

American Garage Door of New Orleans wants to help you get prepared for these potentially devastating storms, although we hope we never see anything like Hurricane Katrina through our beautiful state again! To help minimize the damage of your home in a potential storm, you should have hurricane preparedness strategies in place. Our company can help you get prepared by ordering lightweight fabric shield storm panels.

We live in a state that has unfortunately experienced some of the worst hurricanes in the history of storms. The New Orleans area is vulnerable to storms, and many people do not prepare for these terrible storms until the last minute. However, waiting until the last minute can be a costly mistake. Supplies run thin towards the latter part of summer and fall, especially after the storm warnings start pouring in. There is always big lines at home improvement stores and supermarkets, but for the smart ones, it is best to prepare ahead of time for these potentially catastrophic weather events.

Hurricane preparedness starts with the garage door, which is the largest entryway into your home. You may think that your garage door can withstand a hurricane because the door is stronger and perhaps made of steel or aluminum; however this is not always the case. It largely depends on the velocity of the storm, the craftsmanship of your garage door, the type of materials it is made of, as well as whether or not the garage door has been properly maintained. If hurricane winds rip the garage door off your home, then the entire residence is going to be vulnerable to severe damage. The roof can be the next thing to rip off, if the winds can get in through the garage door. Many homes have been severely damaged or destroyed this way.
