Storm Doors For Front Doors – Is It Time To Replace?

It can be troublesome at times to determine whether your storm door needs to be replaced or whether it can be fixed.  The storm door is used to provide you with illumination as well as ventilation access.  You want to make sure that you are not continuously putting money into repairs on a door that should have been replaced a long time ago.

The storm door protects your entry door from the elements outside, therefore you will find that this door needs to be replaced more frequently.   You also want to make sure that this door is serving the purpose that it is intended for, meaning to protect your door it needs to be functioning properly.

Consider the following things before deciding whether a new storm door purchase is in your future or whether you need to make a few simple repairs and continue using your current door.

Weather Stripping 

First look for the weather stripping around your storm door.  If you have issues with the stripping this is a fix that is easy. This stripping controls loss of air and helps with improving the doors overall insulation.  It needs to be replaced about once a year. 

After you replace any damaged or old weather stripping, you should find that the door is sealed preventing in light or any leakage of air.  If you still see light shining through or you can feel air your door may be bent.  In this case, there is no amount of stripping that is going to help.  The door will be best replaced.

Insulation

A storm door really helps in providing an extra layer of insulation for your home.  If the door has broken glass or is extremely old, with a low insulation ability, then it is best to just go ahead and replace the whole door. In some cases, you may be able to replace the glass insert as opposed to replacing the whole door.  However, if you will be paying someone to replace the glass for you the cost of labor could end up being more than the cost of replacing the full do.  Keep this in mind.

If the door has cracks in it as well this would be another sign that it was time to simply replace the door.  You could continue to patch it, but that would likely end up being less effective and could result in more money spent over time.

Personal Preference

Your storm door is a door that you use in your home every time that you enter and exit.  Therefore, you want to make sure that the door is welcoming.  If you simply feel like your door does not welcome you anymore, or if it is time for a change, then you should consider replacing the door.

There are so many styles of storm doors that you can choose from, so you are sure to find one that will suit your needs.  This is the first door, along with your entry door, that people will see when they come to your home. You want to make sure that you leave them with a great first impression as well.  You should remember what a focal point your front door and storm door are at all points during your purchase.
