A storm door can improve your entry door’s protection against the elements. It can also increase your home’s energy as it provides a second layer of insulation to your entryway. Moreover, a storm door made of durable material can help ensure your home is ready for the hurricane season.
Discover what to look for in a storm door here.
Frame and Glass
You can choose from a full-view, mid-view and high-view frame for your storm door. However, you have more glass options when you go for a full-view door frame. You can also install blinds between the panes. Doors with low-emissivity (low-e) glass offer better insulation, helping reduce the fading of your entry door.
Colors and Finishes
Storm doors are available in a wide range of colors and finishes. Make sure to choose one that complements the rest of your home’s exterior. They also come with various screen types, including full-view, retractable and standard.
Door Closers and Stops
Closers and stops are devices that control how far your door will open. Also called a snubber, a doorstop utilizes a chain attached to a spring to control the door. It can be installed and adjusted easily. On the other hand, a pneumatic closer prevents the door from opening or closing too quickly or far. Doors usually have one pneumatic closer, but you can have two installed for added protection against heavy winds. A sliding washer can also hold the door open when necessary.
