The storm door is the unsung hero of most homes. Every day, it wages a battle against a sea of foes. Bravely fighting to protect you and your property from aggressors as small as a piece of dust and as large as a human. Isn’t it time we sang the praises of this silent warrior?
As small as a piece of dust? Your storm door protects your entry door from dust and debris every day. When wind swirls on your front porch, you storm door is there to keep your entry door safe. That means less scratches and dings to repair.
As large as a human? That’s right. That storm door is one more layer of protection against humans. If a burglar wants to break into your home, they have to go through your aluminum, fiberglass or wood screened door to get at your entry door.
Invisible threats? No problem. If you have a screened storm door it will protect your entry door from sun damage each and every day. Paint says more vibrant, and maintenance costs are reduced.
Protection against an army? You betcha! Your storm door protects your home against mosquitoes, flies, ants, bees, wasps, cockroaches, and a whole host of other pests. Don’t worry about leaving your entry door open; that storm door will let the breeze in and keep those pests out.
Two-way protection? This is where your storm door shines. In the summer it helps to keep more of the cool air conditioning in and the hot summer air out. In the winter it helps to keep your home toasty warm by holding heat in and keeping the bitter cold out. In fact, with a low-emissivity glass coating you can reduce energy loss by up to 50 percent, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.
