Airtight High Wind Garage Doors: Tough Enough for Kansas!
New Overhead Door Installation for a Safe & Secure Salina Home
Strong Garage Door
Your garage door is an important part of your home for many reasons. It helps make a good impression as part of the curb appeal. It also provides important practical functions. You need to have a good high wind garage door to help keep your home safe from strong Kansas storms.
We provide high quality doors & garage doors openers with expert installation on all the garage doors we install to homes across Kansas. We were very happy to have received the glowing Google review Noel left us about the installation we did for his Salina home in the fall of 2022.
Living (and Surviving Storms) in Salina
Salina gets its fair share of damaging Kansas storms. This area is prone to severe thunderstorms with damaging winds. Many residents recall the severe storm that struck Saline County back in June 1969 when an F3 tornado struck the southern part of Salina. That treacherous storm destroyed more than 100 homes and businesses and dozens.
More damaging storms have struck the city of Salina area over the decades. Back in 1973, another F3 tornado hit the southern part of the city. Then in 2008, three years after Cheney Door Company opened the Salina location, yet another F3 tornado stormed through the city.
High Wind Garage Doors
We live in an area famously called Tornado Alley. So, we must take special precautions to keep our family and our home safe from dangerous storms. Your home’s overhead door goes a long way in protecting your home and all inside.
The two most important factors to having a safe and secure garage door is:
- Professional installation
- Quality material
While no garage door can withstand the strongest tornado, you still want to get as strong of a garage door as you can if you live in Salina or another Kansas town. It is unlikely that your home will ever be hit by a tornado, especially an F3 or stronger.
Therefore, what is practical is having a garage door that is wind resistant and impact resistant. And not only the wind, but what the wind brings. Strong high-speed winds can turn tree branches, utility poles, and other items into flying missiles that can break through an ordinary garage door.
How much wind can a garage door withstand? Most experts say a typical overhead door can take on wind speeds of up to 20 miles per hour.
Fortunately, Noel reports his newly installed door by Cheney Door Company took on winds of 40 MPH!
