A Storm Door Could Be Beneficial

10/21/2020 (Permalink)

If your home's front door is durable and sturdy, a storm door may seem unnecessary. However, there are more benefits to a storm door, such as added protection against intrusion and energy efficiency. Here are some advantages that will help you decide if having a storm door is for you.

1. Noise Minimization

Noise travels the air through molecule vibrations. Recording studios use doubled doors that contain thick material to slow down the vibration of air, therefore reducing noise entry into a room. Similarly, storm doors introduce a noise reducing effect, turning your home into a quiet getaway.

2. Energy Efficiency

The first principle of insulation is that the seal of the barrier should have no gap, therefore not allowing temperature-regulated air to escape, and unregulated air to enter. A storm door can help improve insulation by adding barriers to your entryway, which is the most susceptible part of your home.

3. Security
Storm doors generally come with a bolt-and-padlock feature, advanced security vault locks or strengthen screens and reinforced fiberglass. These features add security to the home, compared to a regular door.

4. Style
The entrance door of your home is the first thing people see. If you are looking to make a good impression, storm doors can be crafted with elegance and according to your specifications using materials such as wood, plexiglass, aluminum, and PVC.

5. Affordability
Replacing any door in your home is not cheap. You will have to buy a prefabricated door, or the materials to make one and hire a professional contractor to install it. A beautifully designed storm door can be a better solution than simply replacing it with another regular door since it is more durable and reliable.

6. Ventilation
Storm doors are versatile and generally have screen and fiberglass windows, allowing to switch between them, to get air flow, or maintain indoor temperatures.

7. Value
Storm doors are durable and affordable. They can be made from wood, aluminum or other sturdy materials. They are made to last and can be a great investment because they will add value to your home if you decide to sell it in the future.
