Hurricane Florence

While our home office is located in Virginia Beach, VA, which was not hit nearly as hard by Hurricane Florence as some other parts of the East Coast, we are all too familiar with the plight that comes with such a massive storm. The powers that Mother Nature holds are far beyond what one can mentally prepare for when a hurricane like Florence comes your way.

We often take the time to think about day-to-day things to cover ourselves in the event of a car accident, issues with our home, sudden health issues, or even possibly our pet’s health. However, thoughts about things such as our steel garage may not be at the forefront of our minds. Garage Buildings offers specific wind load certifications for those who are located in areas subject to high winds from hurricanes, Nor’easters, tornadoes, and the like. Not only does this measure help to protect your garage/workshop/carport, but it also prevents it from becoming a flying object that could cause damage to property and/or human life. It happens far too often where people are able to leave an area or hunker down and ensure they are okay physically, only to return and see that damage from flying objects like cars, carports, and sheds has occurred.

Reasons like this are exactly why we here at Garage Buildings offer wind load certifications for all our buildings. This is required in some areas but is also something you can get even if it is not required. It is just another way to safeguard against the unpredictable forces of nature.
