4 Reasons Storm Doors Are a Great Investment

When it comes to maximizing the appeal and functionality of your home, there are certainly a lot of upgrades you can consider. One of them is installing a storm door, which serves as an additional layer of protection for your entry door. Made from a combination of clear glass and a strong wood frame, it is an attractive architectural accent that can also offer a great view of the outdoors. Renewal by Andersen® of Central Illinois discusses why a storm door in Peoria, IL, is a great investment.

1. Enhanced Weather Protection

A storm door can protect your front door from the toughest elements. It helps prevent ice and water from penetrating and damaging your main door, which is often relatively costlier to repair or replace.

2. Added Security

Just like our patio doors, our ProVia® storm doors come with a locking mechanism that gives your home more security from unwanted guests. If you don’t have a peephole, you can easily screen your visitors through your storm door before letting them inside your home.

3. Improved Energy Efficiency

Front doors are often the main outlets for air leakage in homes. With a storm door, you can create an extra pocket of insulation to maximize your energy savings. It will help block outdoor air from trying to get through cracks and gaps along the sides of your entry door.

4. Quick and Easy Installation

With many different entry door materials on the market, you might think that your choice of storm door will be incompatible with your existing unit. Our storm doors from ProVia can match virtually any style of entry door. In addition, they are quick and easy to handle, which hastens installation time.

The benefits of storm doors go beyond everything covered in this post. They are a great investment that can add additional function and beauty to any home. Talk to our installation experts at (866) 693-6707 to learn more on how you can benefit from installing a ProVia storm door in your home.


"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!"
