Did you know windloaded garage doors are a key component to preparing your home during hurricanes?  

All doors sold by Lester’s are tested to determine how much pressure they can handle from wind during a storm. 


Overhead doors installed in the greater Gainesville area prior to 2002 were not required to be windloaded, but they probably hold up to about 60-70 mph winds. If your garage door is not strong enough to hold up to strong winds, it can blow in. Once that happens, the whole roof can blow off!


It is currently required by the State of Florida that all overhead doors sold in Gainesville must have been tested to stand up to hurricane force winds, that a permit must be pulled in order to install a garage door, and a final inspection be performed by a local building official. 


Below are some of our most popular models.


Regal Model

The Regal Model, non-insulated garage door is our biggest seller, and is available in a variety of panel designs & colors.


Vantage Model

The Vantage model, insulated garage door is an excellent choice if you have an air-conditioned and/or heated garage space. This model is also available in a variety of panel designs & colors, and includes a steel backing so that insulation is not visible.


Village Design

The Village Design is available with Regal or Vantage construction, and takes the Carriage House look to a whole new level!
