Silver Lake Homeowners: Considering a New Storm Door?

Sometimes just a simple storm door substitution can make all the difference to the curb appeal of your residence

Storm door substitution can add an accentuating shade, increase the ventilation, or just keep the flies and mosquitos out of your Silver Lake residence.  New aluminum combo storm and screen doors are sold in an array of shades with numerous optional finishes for the hardware.  A maintenance free outside on an extruded aluminum self-storing door might be just the answer.  The amount of glass and how the screen works are a few of the options you will have to consider.  Full view doors offer all of the glass you need to highlight your front entry door and provide more than ample air flow if desired. 

 

New aluminum combination storm and screen doors are available in an array of shades with several optional finishes for the hardware.Maybe the ¾ view is the look you desire, 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 everyday, with dual closers, decorative glass, and roll screens, becoming standards in Silver Lake.

 

The old wood combination storm and screen doors are being replaced with new extruded aluminum storm doors, wood cored vinyl doors, or even steel security doors.  It is very common for the wood storm door to be warped to the point that it won’t close, won’t open or doesn’t seal at all.  Many Silver Lake homeowners are afraid to open their entry doors in the summer for ventilation in fear that flying pests will end up indoors or that mosquitoes at night may carry them away.  Switching that storm door is an simple way to change the look and functionality of your home.

 

It has become very popular for us to install a contrasting color storm door on the front of Silver Lake houses today.  Add an accentuating shade, make it pop, it may be all you need. Maybe you need to have more air flow in the place or maybe you just want to show off that brand new front entry door you had us install.  Our full view selection of doors can accomplish that for you.  Some are available with a full screen replacement when needed and others now come with a screen that rolls up at the top of the door.  No more exchanging out the storm for the screen in the summer months and vice versa going into winter.

 

As with most Silver Lake honey-do improvement jobs the installation is important.  Storm doors must fit properly into the openings so as to be the first barrier to the wind and the keep the flies and mosquitos out.   A properly fitting storm door will add efficiency to that entry door.  If the sweep at the bottom of the door it installed properly 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.

 

Extruded aluminum, wood cored vinyl skinned, wood cored aluminum skinned, steel, and wood storms are all available for homeowners to consider.  Color, maintenance, glass, and screen operation are all things to think about before buying. Some doors today come with factory installed blinds, shades, grids, or even etched, beveled or colored glass.
