When it comes to owning a home, you have a lot of decisions to make. You care about the quality of your home, as well as how it appears to yourself and others. Many aesthetic choices involve practicality, functionality, as well as how it’s going to look. When it comes to your front door, there are many great reasons to consider getting a storm door. A storm door can enhance the overall look of your front door while also providing protection to your home.
What is a Storm Door?
A storm door is a second, outer door that is commonly installed for protection against all types of bad weather, such as rain, ice, and snow. They also allow for ventilation in good weather. These types of doors typically have interchangeable or retractable glass and screen panels. One of the great aspects of storm doors is their customization abilities. The frames and glass come in a wide variety of styles. The frame is commonly made from vinyl, aluminum, fiberglass, or wood. The glass is available in clear, decorative, or Low E. The glass is available in full view, meaning the entire door is essentially glass, mid-view, or high view depending on your personal taste. You can further customize your door to already be painted the color of your home. You can then select from a wide variety of customizable blinds, locks, handles, and hinges.
Why Get a Storm Door?
When it comes to deciding if a storm door is right for you, there are a few different aspects to consider. You’ll want to determine the climate of your area, and the motivations behind why you’d select this type of door. Some popular reasons for getting a storm door include,
- Weather – Bad weather such as rain or snow can damage your door in time. A storm door helps to protect your main door from damages brought on by this type of weather. It adds another layer of insulation, helping to further keep that bad weather outside where it belongs and not inside of your home. Storm doors are also a fantastic option for good weather. When it’s nice out, you can open your main door to allow more light into your home as well as enhance air ventilation without the risk of letting bugs inside.
- Accessibility – It’s a great way to subtly interact with the world outside of your door. If you have young children, it provides a quick and easy way to check on them while they are outside playing. If you have pets, the ability to watch what is happening outside while you’re busy elsewhere will help keep them occupied as well as give them extended time in the sun, even when indoors.
- Securityc- A storm door offers an additional layer of security to your home. A locked storm door can help to slow down and deter any would-be intruders. It also provides additional peace of mind about answering your door when someone knocks.
