Investing in a storm door is never a bad idea. Considering the climatic quirks of the Sunflower State, you might feel the wrath of nature inside your home if you don’t have one.
Apart from protecting your main exterior door against the elements, a storm door also helps keep the bugs outside. It contributes to energy efficiency, reinforces home security and adds curb appeal.
Before you tackle a storm door installation, All States Home Improvement shares the key factors you should consider to buy the right product:
Storm doors feature a solid wood core that makes them sturdy and insulating. The strength of the wood allows the unit to resist damage from strong winds and hailstones. But to be durable and low-maintenance at the same time, they also have a cladding material for protection against aesthetic imperfections. Aluminum is popular, but it’s not scratchproof. Because of this, it’s not uncommon for aluminum-clad storm doors to lose their appeal quickly.
This is why we chose to offer storm doors wrapped in a vinyl frame. This protective wood core covering can stand up to impact and preserve its pristine condition. Vinyl is impervious to chipping, peeling, or fading, allowing it to look like new for years.
Wall openings come in different sizes. Since your storm door has to fit the door frame, buying a stock product may pose installation problems. You need an experienced specialist who knows what it takes to ensure the door will fit in your home. Otherwise, its ability to weather-proof, insulate and secure might be compromised.
You may see storm doors as sacrificial units to protect your main exterior doors, but don’t choose a product with a weak warranty. Storm doors may be relatively inexpensive to repair or replace but think about them as a long-term investment. Buy doors with an extensive warranty to get more value for your money.
