Originally, a storm door was meant to protect the entry door from storms. Whether your exterior doors are exposed to storms are not, having such a door has many benefits.
A storm door affixes to the outside of your entry door but operates independently of it. Here are some reasons to consider adding a storm door.
By properly installing a storm door, a seal is created to prevent rain, ice, snow, and other weatherized elements from reaching and damaging the main entry door of the home. Keeping it safe from the elements means it will have a longer life, as entry doors can be expensive to replace.
Storm doors provide an extra pocket of insulation for front doors, which are often one of the main points of air leakage in homes. A newly installed entry door can still permit drafts, but they can be kept at bay with a storm door.
Storm doors are a great addition for homes because of their versatility. They allow for increased airflow and natural light in the warmer months, especially on days with a nice breeze. While in the winter, they keep those cold drafts out. Conveniences like retractable screens make today’s storm doors a smart choice.
Storm doors typically come with a locking mechanism, which gives your home one more line of defense. If you don’t have a peephole, use your storm door as a barrier to check out who is at your door while still protected. Upgrade to security doors with bars or steel screens with door style handle sets and deadbolts.
