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.
