Racine County Homeowners: Considering a New Storm Door?

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

Storm door replacement can add an accenting shade, increase the ventilation, or just keep the insects outside of your Racine County place.  New aluminum combo storm and screen doors are offered 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 solution.  The amount of glass and how the screen works are a couple of the possibilities you will have to decide on.  Full view doors offer all of the glass you need to highlight your entrance door and provide more than ample ventilation 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 want, plenty of glass but still some door coverage at the bottom.  Storm doors today can provide a little better security than the ones than before.  Mortise locks and deadbolts are usual, with dual closers, decorative glass, and roll screens, becoming more common in Racine County.


The old wood combination 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 flying pests will end up indoors or that mosquitoes at night may carry them away.  Changing that storm door is an easy way to change the look and functionality of your residence.


It has become very commonplace for us to install a contrasting shade storm door on the front of Racine County residence today.  Add an accentuating color, make it pop, it may be all you require. Maybe you need to have more air flow in the home or maybe you just want to show off that brand new front entry system 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 Racine County home improvement jobs the installation is important.  Storm doors must fit properly into the openings so as to be the first blockage 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 wooden 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.
