3 Signs You Might Need a Storm Door

Installed on the outside of the regular door leading into your home, storm doors are an easy way of adding an extra layer of insulation and protection to your home. Offered in a number of different styles and custom options, storm doors often include sliding glass panels and screens to keep your home cool in the summer and warmer in the winter.
It’s important to make yourself aware of the signs that your door might be in need of some extra protection before you invest in this feature. That’s why the window and door experts from Maze Lumber are here to help with three signs you might need of a storm door.

You Might Need A Storm Door If...


You Experience Cold Weather

Saving money while keeping your home warm in the winter is no easy task. The gap under your front and back doors can let warm indoor air escape into the cold winter outdoors. This small gap can let out as much air as a 2.4-inch diameter hole in your wall. By installing a storm door from a building supplies store, you’re adding an extra barrier to keep that warm air inside, lowering your energy bills in the process.


You’re In Need Of Protection From Inclement Weather

The Illinois Valleywindows-and-doors-Cincinnati often experiences thunderstorms and rough winters. With a storm door, you are adding an extra layer of protection from rain and snow. Without this extra protection, your primary door is directly exposed to harsh elements that can ruin custom designs. Unless you have an overhanging roof that will protect your door, it will be exposed to the accumulation of damaging snow, ice, and rain.

Your Home Lacks Security

No matter where you live, home invasions are a real possibility. By installing a storm door with a keyed deadbolt or multipoint locking system, you are giving your home an added layer of security to keep your family safe.
