Why You Should Consider a Storm Door

There are many reasons you might want a storm door on your house and there are many options available.

A storm door will protect you existing exterior door. 

Maybe you have an older door that you want to protect or help from being drafty.  Although many storm doors do not have much insulation value, they can help an existing door that is drafty.  The additional barrier between the wind and cold exterior and your existing door will help those drafts. 

Benefits of a Storm Door

A storm door can also help with UV protection with your doors. Most of the available storm door have LOW-E (low-emissivity). Low-E glass was created to minimize the amount of infrared and ultraviolet light that comes through your glass, and this can help protect and make your existing exterior door last longer.

You might want a storm door for the aesthetics or to enhance the view, even to allow for a breeze in the summer.  Storm doors can come with screens, so you can open your exterior door and allow the breeze in, but not the bugs.
