What Does My Garage Door Do?
Of the many purposes home garage doors serve, it also, in many ways, works as a movable wall. Many homeowners spend a lot of time in their garages, making the condition of the garage door important. As a homeowner, you want your garage to be kept warm, dry, and comfortable.
It can be quite annoying if your garage door sways and bangs back and forth in the wind. Although the quality of the installation plays a large role in the stability of the door, there are ways for the manufacturer to reduce the amount of movement. Along with the noise factor associated with a garage door, there is a much larger and more serious consideration. The garage door plays an important role in holding the house together. In a strong windstorm, such as a tornado, if the doors and windows are open or broken, it can pressurize the house and eventually cause it to blow up like a balloon. There are ways that garage doors can be stabilized to help prevent this scenario as much as possible.
