A storm door serves as an exterior barrier against the elements. You still need your regular entry door. This is typically an additional layer installed for extra weather protection and functionality. Many styles include a screen and a removable glass panel. There is often a small handle with a locking mechanism. This is meant to keep the door from being pushed open by pets, small children, or local wildlife.
The Benefits of Storm Doors
Why should you consider installing storm doors if your home is already protected by an exterior door? The storm door gives you more options when it comes to climate control and comfort.
You can remove the glass panels and let the natural breeze enter your home through the screen without allowing insects and other pests to get inside. You can leave the glass panels in on cooler days and let more sunlight to come through by opening your entry door.
Parents and pet owners also appreciate storm doors. They allow you to see outside into your yard where your children or pets are playing. You can quickly check up on them with a glance and without going out or leaving your entryway open to debris that would otherwise blow in.
