Garage doors are usually the biggest opening on your house and the survival of your garage door is important to the survival of your house. When evaluating your house for its vulnerability to hurricanes, you need to consider your garage door as one of the first and most important vulnerabilities. Doors can be pushed in by winds blowing onto the door or pulled out as winds whip around the corner of the house where the door is located. Garage doors tend to be at the corners of the house, where the outward acting pressures (suctions) are greatest. Larger doors have more surface area exposed to wind and the door spans a much greater distance, so two car garage doors are more vulnerable than single car doors.
Failure of the garage door allows the full fury of the hurricane to enter the house and act on interior walls, doors, ceilings or roofs that form the barriers between the inside of the garage and the rest of the house. This frequently leads to failure of these surfaces and can lead to significant loss of roof sheathing or loss of a part of the roof.
The two threats to your garage door are wind pressure and wind borne debris. Ensuring the door is strong enough to resist wind pressure is critical; impact resistance to wind borne debris is especially important for garage doors with windows
