Twin Lakes 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 substitution can add an accenting shade, improve the ventilation, or just keep the flies and mosquitos out of your Twin Lakes house.  New aluminum combination storm and screen doors are sold in an array of colors with several optional 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 choices you will have to select.  Full view doors give you all of the glass you need to show off your front entry door and provide more than adequate 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 would like, 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 popular, with dual closers, decorative glass, and roll screens, becoming standards in Twin Lakes.

 

The old wood combo 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 popular 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 Twin Lakes homeowners are afraid to open their entry doors in the summer for ventilation in fear that insects will end up indoors or that mosquitoes at night may carry them away.  Switching that storm door is an easy way to change the look and functionality of your place.

 

It has become very common for us to install a contrasting color storm door on the front of Twin Lakes 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 place 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 Twin Lakes 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 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.

 

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