There are generally two options to address the weaknesses in garage doors (attached garages ONLY):.

  • Replace the garage door system.
  • Protect the opening with tested and approved products such as exterior shutters.

Whenever possible, REBUILD Northwest Florida chooses to replace the existing garage door and track system with one designed to withstand wind load and wind-borne debris.

The standard garage door is either the Wayne Dalton Model 8000 or the Clopay Model 73 SP:

Wayne Dalton Model 8000

  • Constructed with high-tensile steel and factory-finished.
  • Virtually maintenance free.
  • Non-Insulated.
  • FL 8248.4, FL 8248.8, or FL 8248.12 (depending on size).

Clopay Model 73 SP

  • 25 guage steel construction
  • Galvanized Steel Hinges
  • Low Maintenance, Factory Painted Finish
  • Non-insulated
  • FL 15279.84 or 16546.4 (Depending on Size)

If your existing garage door is hurricane rated but has a non-rated windowed panel, this panel is removed and replaced with a solid rated panel. The door will be installed and then inspected by the building department. The homeowner must be present because the inspector will have to open and close the garage door as part of the inspection.
