FAQ: Is a Storm Door Worth It?
The front door of your home has a lot to contend with. Continual exposure to the elements—including extreme storms—can certainly start to detract from its appearance and even lead to structural damage. This will not only affect your door, but also lead to problems for your home, including energy loss and a lack of security. Storm doors are used to prevent all of that. Installed in front of the main door, they act as a protective barrier from extreme weather. Different materials can be used, such as wood, aluminum, PVC, and fiberglass, but no matter which one you choose, your storm door will improve your home’s:
- Energy efficiency – A storm door will essentially provide an added layer of insulation for your home, which can help to reduce energy loss by up to 50%. It will also stabilize your home’s interior temperatures so you feel more comfortable year-round.
- Security – Installing storm doors is a great way to fortify your home’s entry points and curb the efforts of intruders of small animals to enter your home.
- Ventilation and lighting – With a storm door installed, you’re free to open your main door and allow light and fresh air to come into your home.
- Doors – This one is obvious! With a storm door installed, you will protect your primary door from rain, ice, snow, and other elements, thereby prolonging its lifespan.
