What makes hurricanes really dangerous is the speed of winds. What makes garage doors the most vulnerable part in the house is their large size. During a hurricane or fierce storm, the high wind might break trees or branches. Debris and elements fly and might strike against any surface. The largest the surface the biggest the possibility of damage. That’s why oversized and double-car garage doors are inclined to break easier than single panel ones. And that’s the first thing you should keep in mind when you are considering garage door replacement in hurricane prone areas. A double door is always a bigger hazard.
