Garage Doors and Hurricanes
We live in Florida where we are very vulnerable of hurricane to hit our state, for that reason you need to prepare your garage doors from powerful winds of a hurricane.
Miami weather center already predicted a busy 2012 hurricane season: Three of 2012 year's hurricanes are expected to be "major," with sustained winds of at least 111 miles per hour, with Category 3 or greater status on the Saffir-Simpson intensity scale, Weather Services International (WSI) said in its early pre-season forecast. With these in mind I highly recommend to call a garage door expert in your area and have your garage door ready for the upcoming hurricane season.
Just a small investment of calling your garage door service expert will save you a lot of money in the long run.
Also keep weather update with The Weather Channel.

Residential garage door often used as the main entrance to the house, in just a day, the garage door will go up and down literally more than ten times. Your garage door is the largest moving object in your entire house, with many parts that are under high tension.
Lack of maintenance or improper maintenance to your residential garage door, as well as neglect, and poor installation could lead to a dangerous situation that could cause serious injuries and expensive damage.
We recommend calling a garage door expert either once or twice a year for an inspection.
