Why Homeowners Should Consider Storm Doors

Whether you’re a homeowner on the coast or you simply want to protect your front door from harsh weather, a storm door is a great option. A storm door is an exterior door that is installed in front of an existing exterior door. It provides a layer of protection against harsh weather and can also provide additional security. Storm doors are typically made of glass.  

Benefits of Storm DoorS

  1. Protection from the Elements: Coastal regions are often subjected to harsh weather conditions including high winds, heavy rain, and saltwater spray. A storm door can help protect your home from these elements by providing a layer of insulation and protection. The glass panels in a storm door are designed to be strong enough to withstand high winds and heavy rain, helping to keep your home dry and free from damage. The extra insulation provided by a storm door can help to keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer, reducing your energy costs.Landscape of storm with trees.
  2. Improved Security: Another benefit of a storm door is the added security it provides. Most storm doors are equipped with a locking mechanism that can be engaged when the door is closed, providing security for your home. Similarly, the glass panels in a storm door can act as a deterrent to potential intruders, making it more difficult for them to gain access to your home. Close up image of a lock on a storm door.

A storm door can help to increase the value of your home, making it a smart investment for homeowners in coastal regions.
