Storm Doors Replacement & Installation
Entry doors are often installed with extra room inside the opening for a storm door. Storm Doors protect your home from the elements with elegance. They protect the entry door from weathering and damage, while helping to increase your home's insulation and security. Every front door is constructed with tempered safety glass and a durable finish. They are made to close automatically. However, most have a locking mechanism to keep the door ajar when needed. One thing to keep in mind is to never leave the door fixed in the open position, as it can be damaged in heavy winds. If your door is damaged in some way, all of our storm doors have a lifetime limited transferable warranty.
Storm doors are typically full or half-view doors, meaning that the door consists of mainly one piece of glass or the door is solid at the bottom with glass at the top. Frequently the storm door's glass can be removed for a screen. Screens are commonly used in parts of the country when the climate is temperate allowing for more ventilation throughout the home.
If you choose to have glass in your storm door it is available in either single-pane or double-pane options from some manufacturers, increasing the opportunity to insulate and seal your home. Weather-stripping is another way to seal the opening around the storm door. The non-glass surface of the door is usually aluminum and can be available with solid inner cores or foam insulation with low-maintenance finishes. While the door may be aluminum or a composite some manufacturers offer wood-grain looks to enhance your home's curb appeal.
When selecting a new storm door for your home there are some things to keep in mind such as how the entry door opens. If you select a storm door that only works with a right-hand opening entry door, it will make entering the house quite difficult. Some entry doors are installed without an entry door in mind and there may not be sufficient room in the opening for a storm door. Make sure there is room before purchasing a storm door.
