Add an Extra Layer of Insulation and Security with a Storm DoorAug 28, 2014
Lying deep within your memory bank are the sounds of childhood. Maybe it’s a tune played by the ice cream truck, the melody of a favorite song or perhaps the thump of a door shutting behind you as you left to play. Many generations have used storm doors as a way to enhance the appearance of their home and provide an extra measure of safety and insulation for the front or rear entrance of the house. Below are a number of reasons to consider a new storm door from Continental Siding for your home.
The Advantages of Adding New Storm Doors:
- Protect the main door from a variety of Midwest weather elements including rain, snow and ice. A new storm door provides a barrier and another layer of protection for the main front and/or back door in the home.
- Improve energy efficiency by adding another layer, or pocket, of insulation. Doors are a major spot for air leakage because of the constant opening and closing, especially if it’s a part of the main traffic route in and out of the home. Adding a glass storm door with low-emissivity glazing can also help to control the flow of heat in and out of the home.
- Increase air flow and natural light through a screened-in storm door. Most new storm doors come with a screened version in addition to a glass option or it might be a 2-in-1 version that combines glass and screen in the same door.
- Add an extra layer of safety between you and the outside world. If you’re looking for additional security, choose a storm door with a metal grillwork and the option to add a deadbolt lock.
- Enhance the curb appeal of the front of your home with a new storm door. Go online to check out some the innovative ways to use storm doors on Pinterest.
