Storm and Screen Doors
A storm door is installed on the exterior door frame of your home and provides an insulating space between the outside and the entry door. They are lighter and thinner than entry doors and helps provide more ventilation, saves, energy, adds security and natural light, and protects the entry door.
Storm Door Benefits
Storm doors provide the following list of benefits:
Lowers energy costs. Storm doors provide another barrier between the outside and the inside of your home. Storm doors minimize leaks that may come through from an entry door and it helps reduce heating and cooling costs.
Increases ventilation. Many storm doors come with screens that allow cool breezes to help save on air conditioning costs in your home.
Spend less on a storm door than on an entry door. Replacing your entry door can be expensive. Storm and screen door combinations cost lower and improves your home's energy efficiency.
Increases security. Storm doors are available with a three point locking system or a curved lever and deadbolt to provide an additional layer of security to protect your family.
Low maintenance. The glass in a storm door protects the entry door and lessens the frequency of repainting or re-staining the door.
Increase natural light into your home. If you have a solid entry door, a half or full view storm door increases the amount of light to the inside of your house.
