How reinforced garage doors help protect your home in high winds.

Even though it has been a quiet hurricane season it is still extremely important to make sure your home is properly protected in the event of a storm. Garage doors play a critical role in protecting your home, especially if you live in a hurricane prone region. If you do not have a tested, wind-rated door, high winds can force it out of the opening, causing an uncontrolled buildup of internal pressure and ultimately a blowout of your home’s roof and supporting walls.

The adoption of the International Building Code (IBC) means wind load is no longer an issue exclusive to Florida and other hurricane hot spots.

States like Kansas, Missouri, Utah, Nevada and California also have windload reinforcement requirements for garage doors because of wind speeds related to the terrain and weather in those regions.

Here in South Florida wind code is extremely important. You can see on the following diagram the wind borne debris regions. We are right in the middle of it!



Click HERE to determine your Windcode Rating. You can also call Broten Garage Door Sales for help in determining if you have a wind code rated door.

Don’t wait until it’s too late. Your garage door is the largest opening in your home. Make sure it is strong enough to help protect you.

Are you ready for school?

School starts tomorrow for most of us in South Florida. For some it’s a sad time and others can’t wait to get the kids back to school! Either way the first week always promises to be a little hectic. Mornings are crazy, after school activities start and traffic is a nightmare!

First Day of School!

First Day of School!

The first day promises to be crazy! Make sure you pack the night before to minimize the chaos in the morning. Hopefully you’ve laid out outfits so there is no indecision in the morning. Make sure kids know where they go for the first period. Whether you drive them or they are riding the bus things will be mush smoother if they know exactly where to go.

Remember getting back to the school routine and adjusting to new workloads takes some getting used to after a long summer break. It may take the kids a few days to adjust so be patient with them. Once everyone gets into the new routine things will get better!

Make sure to document the first day! It goes by so fast and you’ll always want to have memories. Most of all enjoy then next school year!!

We hope you have a great first week of school!!! Good Luck!!

August is National Curb Appeal Month

August has been designated as National Curb Appeal Month. Curb appeal is extremely important as it is the first impression people have of your home.  It’s a great time to focus on the exterior of your home and give it a good sprucing up. So how can you do this?

1. Paint trim and shutters. Update colors and make your home stand out. paint house

2. Pressure wash. Nothing brightens up a home more than a good cleaning. Make sure to do the driveway and walkways. Make sure to include decks and patios too.

3. Spruce up the landscaping. Even if you get the house all fixed up, a scraggly yard can ruin the whole effect. Get out the garden gloves and the wheelbarrow, and tidy up that unkempt landscape.

4. Replace your entry door. If needed consult a design expert (like Broten) to coordinate your front door for a perfect fit for your home! This can make a HUGE difference in the look of your home. entry doors

5. Replace your garage door.  Your garage door is the largest opening to your home and can make a dramatic difference in the look of your home. Use our garage door imagination system and see exactly what your home will look like with a new garage door.
