Racine County Homeowners: Considering a Replacement Storm Door?

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

Storm door substitution can add an accenting color, increase the ventilation, or just keep the insects outside of your Racine County house.  New aluminum combination storm and screen doors are offered in an array of shades with numerous possible finishes for the hardware.  A maintenance free exterior 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 possibilities you will have to select.  Full view doors give you all of the glass you need to highlight your front entry door and provide more than satisfactory 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 three quarter view is the appearance you want, plenty of glass but still some door coverage at the bottom.  Storm doors today can provide a little better security than the ones from years past.  Mortise locks and deadbolts are everyday, with dual closers, decorative glass, and roll screens, becoming standards in Racine County.

 

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 usual 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 Racine County homeowners are afraid to open their entry doors in the summer for fresh air in fear that the whole nest of hornets will end up inside of the house or that mosquitoes at night may carry them away.  Replacing that storm door is an easy way to change the look and functionality of your dwelling.

 

It has become very common for us to install a contrasting color storm door on the front of Racine County houses today.  Add an accenting shade, make it pop, it may be all you require. Maybe you need to have more fresh air in the dwelling or maybe you just want to show off that brand new front entry door you got.  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 swapping out the storm for the screen in the summer months and vice versa going into winter.

 

As with most Racine County home improvement projects the installation is important.  Storm doors must fit right 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 correctly 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 wooden storms are all available for homeowners to consider.  Color, maintenance, glass, and screen operation are all things to consider before making your purchase. Some doors today come with factory installed blinds, shades, grids, or even etched, beveled or colored glass.
