What Is the Purpose of a Storm Door?
You’ve done your homework and invested in a high-performance front door for your home that is energy efficient and provides protection against severe weather and intruders. You’ve also made sure that it was installed with precision so you can enjoy all the benefits it offers. So, why would you consider adding a storm door? Surprisingly, there are several reasons why storm door installation might still be a good idea.
Should I Put a Storm Door on My Front Door?
There are few negatives and plenty of positives to adding a storm door to your New England home’s front entryway. Yes, it will take longer to get inside when your hands are full. However, consider these benefits:
Improved Weather Protection & Energy Efficiency
No matter how sturdy your front door is, a storm door will add another layer of protection when inclement weather strikes. If your front door is wood, a storm door may also slow its deterioration. What’s more, storm doors help prevent heat transfer and can eliminate any chance of drafts.
Added Light & Ventilation
The addition of a storm door gives you the option of leaving your front door open while your storm door is closed, allowing sunlight to flood your home. If you choose a storm door with a screen panel, you can also enjoy a cool breeze without having to worry about insects getting inside.
