Storm door replacement can add an accenting color, improve the ventilation, or just keep the insects outside of your Kenosha house. New aluminum combo storm and screen doors are sold in an array of shades with several possible finishes for the hardware. A maintenance free outside on an extruded aluminum self-storing door might be just the solution. The amount of glass and how the screen works are a couple of the choices you will have to consider. Full view doors offer all of the glass you need to display your entrance door and provide more than ample air flow if desired.
Maybe the three quarter view is the appearance you want, a lot of glass but still some door coverage at the bottom. Storm doors today can provide a little better security than the ones from years ago. Mortise locks and deadbolts are popular, with dual closers, decorative glass, and roll screens, becoming more common in Kenosha.
The old wooden combo storm and screen doors are being replaced with new extruded aluminum storm doors, wooden cored vinyl doors, or even steel security doors. It is very popular for the wooden storm door to be warped to the point that it won’t close, won’t open or doesn’t seal at all. Many Kenosha homeowners are afraid to open their entry doors in the summer for ventilation in fear that the whole nest of hornets will end up indoors or that mosquitoes at night may carry them away. Changing that storm door is an uncomplicated way to change the look and functionality of your dwelling.

Maybe you need to have more fresh air in the home or maybe you just want to show off that brand new front entry system you had us install.

No more swapping out the storm for the screen in the summer months and vice versa going into winter.
As with most Kenosha honey-do improvement projects the installation is important. Storm doors must fit right into the openings so as to be the first blockage to the wind and the keep the insects out. A properly fitting storm door will add efficiency to that entry door. If the sweep at the bottom of the door it installed right it will help seal the door at the bottom. If the door binds when closing or doesn’t latch tightly, you might just want to look at the way the storm door was installed.
