Steel Storm Doors – What Are The Benefits of Storm Doors

Storm doors have a initial cost that is relatively low, therefore, installing steel storm doors is an inexpensive option with many benefits for the homeowner.  Storm doors can be made from steel, fiberglass, wood, and aluminum.  These doors often have inserts that are interchangeable for screens and glass. 

Depending on your choice of materials and the quality of the door, you will often find that these doors can last you more than 25 years.  That is a long time for your investment, meaning it will certainly pay for itself.  

That being said, you need to make sure that you take the time to select the best door for your needs.  Below are some of the great benefits that you can get from investing in a new storm door.

Protection

In most cases, the exterior door is costlier than the storm door.  In many cases the front door may have special paints, stains or even glass inserts that can benefit greatly from add protection against harsh elements.  For example, debris that is blown you the wind.  By protecting your door from these things, you can help insure that it last for a long time as well as reduce the cost necessary for maintenance of the door.

Your storm door acts as a shield for your main entrance door.  It shelters it from all types of conditions. You want to make sure that your storm door is durable and provides you with the needed extra protection that you are looking for.  This however is not the only great benefit to storm doors.

Energy Efficiency

Another great benefit to purchasing steel storm doors is energy efficiency.   If your entry door is energy-efficient you can still benefit from the extra protective layer that you get from the storm door as it creates a buffer between you and the winter cold or summer heat.

There are some storm doors that rely on glass that is low-emissivity or coatings.  These added features can cost you around 15 percent more on your purchase however, they are able to reduce the loss of energy by as much as 50 percent.  That said, if your exterior door will get many hours of sunlight beaming directly on it these glass doors are discourage.  This is due to the fact that the sunlight can trap heat between the doors and may damage the entry door over time.

Security

Another great benefit of steel storm doors is their ability to provide you with extra security.  A security door discourages burglars by putting an extra barrier for them to jump through if they want to enter your residence.   You should check to see what type of lock, if any, is provided with the storm doors that you are considering purchasing.

If you live in an establishment that has a HOA with rules surrounding the outside of your home, you will need to ask an official or look in your handbook to see what type of storm doors you can install.  This will keep you from purchasing the wrong door only to find that you must remove it because of rules.
