Precision Door Service Announces Hurricane Ready Campaign With Free Garage Door Evaluations
TITUSVILLE, Fla., July 22 /PRNewswire/ — Precision Door Service (http://www.precisiondoor.net), one of the largest garage door service companies in the U.S., announced today a new campaign to promote awareness of hurricane safety and preparedness in Florida.
“Garage doors are held in place only by their tracks,” said Bill Walden, President of Precision Door Service. “Hurricane winds exert so much pressure and suction that unless the door is properly reinforced it will easily be overcome and the home compromised. But many homeowners don’t know if their garage door is hurricane prepared. We want to help change this.”
The Florida Alliance for Safe Homes found that “80% of residential hurricane wind damage starts with wind entry through the garage door.” And although building codes changed after Hurricane Andrew, a study by Amarr for hurricane preparedness found that “fewer than 50% of consumers in hurricane prone areas know that their garage doors are required to meet building code criteria for wind pressures.”
To help home owners, Precision Door Service is providing free hurricane preparedness evaluations. To request this evaluation homeowners should complete the form at http://www.precisiondoor.net/hurricane-garage-doors or call Precision Door Service. Florida insurance companies who wish to make this service available to their customers can call (888) 842-1204.
