What is a storm Door?

August 26, 2013
Storm DoorIf you are like me you may not be familiar with storm doors. Maybe the homes you have lived in didn’t have storm doors, or it could simply be you never called them by that name. So what is a storm door?
Storm doors are installed on the outside of your home’s entry door. They are typically made of metal, vinyl or wood. Usually a portion of the door (full or half) is an open area. This open area is designed to be filled with glass or screen material. The materials can be fixed but are usually made to be interchangeable so the owner can swap between glass or screen material as they wish throughout the year.
Storm doors serve a few different functions. With the glass insert installed they protect your entry door from the harsh weather. They also act as another level of insulation to your home. In more pleasant weather the glass can be switched for screens allowing you to leave your entry door open increasing ventilation while still keeping out the insects. They also provide an added level of security, especially when leaving your exterior door open for increased airflow, or when answering your door.
Storm doors are an excellent addition to any home. If you are thinking about adding a storm door to your home we can certainly help. Give K-Designers a call 800-728-3902 or visit us online
