Storm Doors: Protecting Your Home

Entry doors and patio doors are designed to keep your home safe from the harsh elements while also serving as the main portals to your home. However, even these tough home components are vulnerable to certain factors. This is where Andersen® storm doors come in handy.

Storm Doors Protecting Your Home


What Are Storm Doors?

Storm doors are a type of secondary doors that are installed over existing entry or patio doors. They are made of durable material such as Fibrex® (a mixture of organic cellulose and durable polymers), giving them exceptional durability, capable of withstanding strong winds and impact damage. Instead of fragile glass panels, storm doors usually have wire mesh or other mesh-like panels that are not likely to break upon impact.

Shields for Your Shields

The main purpose of storm doors is to minimize the amount of storm damage that can happen to your patio or entry doors. The storm doors bear the brunt of the wear and tear caused by harsh weather. Aside from being more resistant to weather damage, a storm door also costs less, and requires less maintenance than a regular door, making it both durable and expendable at the same time.

Form and Function

Storm doors are mainly installed for functional purposes, but that doesn’t mean that they do not have any cosmetic value. In fact, a storm door can enhance a home’s appearance by adding an extra layer of detail to its façade, increasing the home’s curb appeal and overall value.

"I would recommend RBA of Central Illinois for QUALITY windows and doors. Compared to our old cheap, thin vinyl windows, Andersen blows them away. You can easily tell by how well the sliding doors fit and close, and how heavy duty they are. We also cannot hear the wind rushing through the house in inclement weather anymore! And the black window frames we went with are amazing to look at. Aaron, Al, Darrell, and Cory all were professional and went all out to finish the job, given the weather they had to deal with. I would definitely recommend. They were also on top of communicating with me given the weather delays, and what I could expect for them coming out. Five stars!"
