What to Know about Custom Storm Doors

If you live in a place with unpredictable weather—and these days, who doesn't?--you might be considering a custom storm door. Weather extremes can really take a toll on your exterior doors, so if you want to keep them in good shape, it's a smart idea to invest in storm doors. Other reasons why you might want custom storm doors include:

  • keeping outside elements (rain, snow, dirt, etc.) outside
  • letting in more light
  • extra ventilation

Generally, storm doors come in two standard sizes, one to fit the front entry door and one to fit the back door. However, beyond that, you can design a custom storm door to fit any need you may have. Whether you're looking for style, safety, or simply a quality door, you should be able to find what you're after.

Framing the Situation

Personalizing the frame for your custom storm door is one easy way to make it yours. You can choose a color that matches your windows, your door, and other trim, for example. So if you're thinking that frame color is limited to that one silver aluminum frame, you're in for a surprise. Metallic colors are readily available, of course, but your options are much more varied than that.

For instance, if you'd like something a little more subtle, storm doors can be made with frames in a selection of neutrals—everything from pale beiges and putty to darker, almost-black browns. And of course, black, white, and gray are options. On the other hand, if you'd like something a bit more noticeable or you want your frame to match your home's existing color scheme, there are options there, too. Many manufacturers offer frames in shades of red, blue, and green, for example.

Full Screen

Another way you might choose to customize your storm door is with the panel options. Say, for example, that you don't want or need a ventilation option, but you do want to let in extra light whenever you choose. That's possible. There are storm doors made, for instance, with blinds set in between glass panels. That means that you can adjust the light or privacy without ever having to worry about cleaning blinds. However, that might be an unusual case.

Many people choose storm doors just for the extra fresh air. If that's you, you'll be pleased to know that you can get the best of both worlds. Most modern custom storm doors come with the option of interchangeable panels. This means that you can change from a glass panel to a screen panel on a seasonal basis so you can get the best use out of your door year-round.

The Lowdown on Low-E

One decision you might consider is whether to choose low-e glass. If you're not familiar, low-e (the e is for “emissivity”) glass is glass that has been manufactured with a layer of metallic oxide. This layer can coat the surface, be on the interior of a pane, or be between double panes. It's not noticeable if you're just looking at it, but you will be able to notice the effects.

First of all, it works as a kind of sunscreen, keeping UV rays off you and your furnishings. It also works to keep your home energy efficient. During the winter, it can cut down on heating costs, by letting in sunlight and then radiating it back into your home as heat. In warmer climates, they can work the opposite way, allowing a certain amount of light to enter the home, but not those hot rays.
