Storm doors refer to the glass door installed over your existing exterior door. They can add protection from the elements and increased home security, as well as let more natural light into your home.
Storm doors that feature screens instead of glass are referred to as screen doors and can ventilate your home.
This guide will walk you through the process of buying the best frame for your ideal screen or storm door.
Door frames come in a variety of materials and designs, with some incorporating intricate glass patterns. Choosing your ideal door depends on a number of factors, including where you live and what kind of performance and longevity you expect.
Safety: If you have pets or children that tend to lean on doors, select a durable door frame constructed from strong material.
Most storm doors are built using steel, aluminum, composite or vinyl frames.
Storm doors come in a variety of colors to complement your home’s exterior. Should you decide to paint your storm door, make sure you are not voiding the warranty by doing so.
Modern storm doors do more than just allow in additional light or offer added protection from harsh climates. Some have convenient slide-away retractable screens, and others have interchangeable screen/glass panel combinations that you can swap for seasonal ventilation quickly with no tools needed.
