A well-designed storm door protects your entry door as well as interior belongings from extreme weather elements. Similar to window replacement units, storm doors are essential components in enhancing your home’s comfortability and security. There are also different styles and materials available in the market that can boost the visual impact of your property.
To help you make the most of your storm door replacement, here are three key features that you should look for:
For storm doors, aluminum is the go-to option for many homeowners. It has superior weathering resistance and is easily installed by door experts. Aluminium doors come in varying levels of thickness. Since storm doors are designed to be strongly and solidly built, you should opt for the thickest possible option that is within the range of your budget.
Style of Door
Storm doors can either be full-view or partial-view. Full-view storm doors let in the maximum amount of light with a large glass panel and are typically enclosed in an aluminum frame. Some roof replacement contractors may say that full-view works best with hinged entry doors. On the other hand, some homeowners with partial-view storm doors utilize the bottom section as pet doors.
Like choosing the frame material, you can also select which type of glass you want to use for your storm door. Some door specialists offer low-emissivity (low-E) glass that can minimize the damaging effects of ultraviolet light without compromising the amount of light that enters your home. This particular glass improves your home’s energy efficiency.
