The use of a storm door might seem unecessary, but the reality is far from the truth. This fixture is worth the investment for the many benefits it offers to your home.
Today, Asher Lasting Exteriors talks about the invaluable things storm doors can do.
Weatherproofing Main Door
They are storm doors because they protect front door systems from the elements and wind-blow debris. The storm door takes a beating from the elements to preserve the beauty and structural integrity of the main one.
Like ENERGY STAR®–certified hinged entry doors, quality storm doors are energy-efficient in their own right. The high-performance ones feature low-emissivity glass and a reflective coating, which can reduce heat loss by up to 50%.
Keeping Bugs Away
Screened storm door systems let you enjoy pleasant breezes inside the house without worrying about pesky insects. If you choose a unit with a large screen, you can enjoy top-to-bottom ventilation and avoid pest invasions.
Reinforcing Home Security
The primary points of entry into your house could never have too many layers of defense. Contemporary front doors these days are equipped with sophisticated locking systems, and heavy-duty storm doors serve as an additional physical barrier between you and burglars. Being another obstacle to overcome, the presence of a storm door may be enough to discourage an intruder.
Letting in the Sun
The opaqueness of an entry door is a logical reason to pair it with a storm door. Not only does it catch some sunlight to brighten up the interior space, but also it can frame a wonderful view and allow for instant surveillance of the surroundings.
