What Storm Doors Can Do for Your Home

Most people think their wooden doors are durable already, so they’re of the opinion that a storm door is simply a waste of money. Storm doors, however, not only secure your home from the harshest weather conditions. They can also provide added security against break-ins and improve energy efficiency, among other advantages.

Renewal by Andersen® storm doors provide an excellent touch to your entry door and window. Still have doubts about it? Continue reading to learn some of its benefits.

Protect Your Exterior Door

Entry doors are expensive investments. By installing storm doors, you can keep them protected at all times. For many, exterior doors have special paints or textures that can benefit from additional security against unwanted debris and elements, allowing them to last longer and reducing maintenance costs.

Improve Energy Efficiency

Even if your home has an energy-efficient exterior door, storm doors offer an added layer of protection by putting a barrier between heat or cold and you. This is done by producing an air lock between your main door and your home’s outside edge. As a result, this will keep air and heat in your home, preventing your heating and cooling systems from working too hard, improving energy efficiency and saving costs.

Apart from protection against debris and other elements, a storm door offers an additional layer of security from possible break-ins.

"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!"
