Minnesotans know a thing or two about severe winter weather. SERVPRO® of Moorhead responds to many storm damage emergencies each year. Garage doors can be damaged in severe storms when strong winds blast into them, causing them to buckle and break under the pressure. According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), there are steps you can take to protect your home from wind damage:

  • Inspect your garage door to make sure it can withstand strong winds and have reinforcing supports installed if necessary
  • Cover doors and windows to prevent broken glass and damage from flying debris. Consider installing storm windows.
  • Inspect your roof and make sure that at least six nails or staples hold down each shingle beneath the edges of the overlapping shingles. Install a waterproof underlayment under the shingles to prevent water from entering the structure in the event the wind blows the shingles off the roof.
  • Remove trees too close to the home
  • Make sure your rain gutters and downspouts are secured to the house and are in good working order
  • Anchor potential projectiles like furniture, grills, and small objects
