New Overhead Door Products Offer Coastal Homeowners Beauty and Strength



Coastal region homeowners no longer have to compromise beauty for strength when choosing a garage door. New residential wind load options, now available from Overhead Door Corporation, offer homeowners the ability to choose among the latest garage door styles while still keeping their homes up to code. 

Lewisville-based Overhead Door, the nation’s largest manufacturer of garage doors, now offers three new comprehensive wind load garage door series that feature superior craftsmanship, durability and additional protection against hurricanes, high-wind damages, pressure changes, and wind-borne debris. These garage doors are designed to meet the nation’s strictest building codes, including those in Miami-Dade County, Florida, where high winds and hurricanes are a seasonal occurrence. 

Overhead Door strives to design and build garage doors that meet the ongoing needs of homeowners.  The new wind load doors do that by helping to protect homes from storm-driven winds, but with a style and attractiveness that make them ideal choices for those who want to improve curb appeal. 

Each garage door series is designed to add beauty and enhance a home’s curb appeal, they are also designed to act as an important safeguard for residential structures. That’s because during high wind events, debris can become powerful projectiles that can damage the garage door, reducing the door’s ability to protect the home against damaging winds.  Garage doors with out reinforcement can buckle under the pressure, giving the high winds access to the interior of the structure.  This often results in the roof members and wall panels being blown apart, allowing rain, wind and debris to have easy access inside. 

Residents located in an area prone to high winds can count on WindStorm doors, ordered with proper wind load options, to provide reliable protection against high wind damage without sacrificing fine craftsmanship, durability and style.  The Overhead Door Thermacore 5745 and 5765 series’ and Courtyard Collection 7565 series garage doors are foamed-in-place, steel and polyurethane constructed doors that come in a range of panel styles and carriage house designs. The garage doors feature a minimum wind load with optional upgrades that meet or exceed coastal region building codes, including the International Building Code (IBC), International Residential Code (IRC), Florida Building Code (FBC), Texas Department of Insurance (TDI) and Miami-Dade County.
