Storm Doors Offer Added Benefits To Your Entry Doors
Have you been considering installing a storm door over your existing entry door? Have you had some reservations about installing it yourself? Have you been wondering if a new storm door could really benefit your home? If you have been asking yourself these questions, then we will do our best to answer them. Entry doors that have a storm door have many benefits and cost less than you may expect. Even if you are not at all inclined to pick up tools and do it yourself, having one installed by a professional will more than pay for itself in the added benefits provided.
A storm door provides added protection for your entry door
Storm doors provide a seal around your entry door that protects it from the elements. While most entry doors today are constructed to defend against water and sun damage, adding extra protection with a storm door is still a good idea. Replacing your entry door is expensive; a good storm door will prolong its usefulness and appearance.
Energy efficiency is great reason to consider storm door installation
This is particularly true with older entry doors. A storm door creates an insulated pocket of air between itself and your entry door. If you aren’t ready to give up on your old entry door, then a storm door will help you save some money on your heating bills. In the summer, homeowners with either new or old entry doors can benefit from the extra airflow that a storm door can provide. In the summer months the glass in these doors can be replaced with a screen. This will help to keep your home cooler and help to save on cooling costs.
Storm doors add extra security to your home
All models are equipped with a lock that can be secured while your entry door is open. However, it is no guarantee that an intruder won’t easily break through the locked door. If you are looking for a storm door that will provide maximum security, you should consider installing a Homeguard steel security door. These doors incorporate decorative and strong steel construction combined with steel latching that ensures that the door won’t easily break.
