Given Canada’s long winter months, homeowners can benefit immensely from installing storm doors – from promoting energy efficiency to providing added home security. Storm doors have relatively low initial costs and can last a pretty long time.
Deciding on whether storm doors are for you can be intimidating for some, that is why we have come up with a list of advantages to help you make the best choice. Read more about it below:
- Storm doors are energy efficient
Installing storm doors help keep your home energy efficient by creating an added barrier between you and the winter cold (or even the summer heat). Some storm doors are made of low-emissivity glass that can immensely reduce energy loss.
They also prevent air leakage by providing an added pocket of insulation for your front door. This helps prevent precious heat from escaping the confines of your home.
- They protect your front door
Storm doors can protect your front door from the harsh weather elements –like ice and snow- that can damage it. Installing a storm door is a much cheaper and more practical alternative to repairing a damaged and worn out front door, don’t you think?
There are also some storm doors that come with screen inserts, which can prevent unwanted critters from crawling where they are not wanted – inside your home.
- They provide added security
Storm doors are equipped with their own locking mechanism, which provides added security for your home. A storm door can also keep unwanted visitors at a safe distance by giving you an added barrier.
- They are easy to install
Storm doors are fairly easy to install and take down if you find no need for it. The market is saturated with DIY storm door kits you can take home and install the same day.
