Advantages of Installing Storm Doors

Storm doors are an awesome addition to any home.  To prove it, we’ve compiled a list of advantages of installing storm doors so you can make an educated decision in deciding if they’re right for your home.

Storm Doors Bring More Light Into Your Home

By installing storm doors you’ll be able to bring more light into your home, enhancing and brightening the interior.  Prop your entry door open and let the natural light shine through your storm door.

Storm Doors Have Increased Insulation

One of the perks of installing storm doors is the extra layer of insulation around your front door.  A storm door acts like an additional barrier to your home, sealed tightly to prevent unwanted air from entering or escaping your home.  Front doors are often the main source of air leakage from homes, so storm doors can help keep that air inside.  In return, they’ll help your home’s interior temperature stay regulated and comfortable.

Installing Storm Doors Will Make Your Home More Energy Efficient

The best part about a storm door’s excellent insulation is that it’ll boost your energy efficiency.  The insulation power of a storm door can both lower your energy bill and reduce your carbon footprint – the perfect win-win situation!

Storm Doors Protect Your Main Entry Door

Storm doors can protect your main entry door from harsh Milwaukee weather such as rain, ice, wind and snow.  Your storm door helps keep weather elements from reaching your main door so any special finish, stain, windows or paint you have on your entry door can last longer.

The last thing you want is for your entry door to get damaged.

Installing Storm Doors Will Add Security to Your Home

If your’re looking for a simple way to make your home more secure, storm doors are the way to go.  Storm doors can give you the protection you need, acting as an extra barrier between you and whoever is at your front porch.  You’ll be able to open your front door without losing the barrier between you and the person in front of you.  That should make you feel more comfortable opening your door to a stranger.

A durable, heavy-duty storm door with an aluminum frame and tempered safety glass will offer more protection from break-in attempts and it’ll last longer.  And as far as screen doors go, stainless steel is the best of the best when it comes to security.

You can also buy a storm door with a lock to make it harder for an intruder to break in.  If anything, a lock can act as a deterrent to an intruder and perhaps give you the peace of mind you deserve.

Installing a Storm Door Increases Airflow into Your Home

When the weather is nice, who wouldn’t want to take advantage?  Choose a storm door with a ventilation option to increase airflow throughout your home.  You’ll be able to let a nice breeze into your home, while the screen inserts keep bugs and pests out.
