At its core, a house is just a structure to protect you from the elements.

But we all know a house is so much more than that - it's a home. That's why you put so much care and effort into the upkeep and look of your home. From the paint to the lawn, the windows and more, you want only the best for the place where lifelong memories are made.

Why not bring that same enthusiasm and passion to your garage door?

But when it come stop your garage, there's more to it than just what's inside.

Your garage door plays a significant role in the look and feel of your entire home.

When you hear the words garage doors, chances are you instinctively think about garages for homes. That certainly makes sense: garages were made for housing cars and household items like lawnmowers, yard tools and more. But just because garages are typically reserved for homes, doesn't mean that your commercial business couldn't benefit from the look and performance of a garage door.

You don't have to travel far through any town or city in Southeastern Louisiana to find a business using commercial garage doors in a creative way. New Orleans bars, for example, are replacing windows with garage doors for their high visibility, light transmission, and aesthetics. When installed correctly from a professional commercial garage door specialist, your doors are just as easy to open and close as windows, and can be insulated.

The only difference is they offer unique character for your commercial business that a standard window simply can't deliver.

There are so many reasons why garage doors are beneficial to a house. Not only do they offer a safe haven for your car or other possessions, but they add considerable value to your home.

But if you live in or around the New Orleans Metro area, then there's something else you should know about your attached garage door: during a hurricane they can be the reason why your home gets destroyed.

That's because unless you have a reinforced garage door installed, hurricane-like winds can knock down your garage door, allowing pressure to build up inside your home until the entire structure collapses.

If you were to take a look at recent hurricanes in our region, you'll discover that the garage door is typically the first part of your home to get destroyed.

Seeing as your home is likely your most valuable asset, and seeing as we live in a region of the world infamous for massive storms, isn't it about time you looked into making your garage doors more resilient to hurricanes?

American Garage Door can help.
