Every home has a front door and nearly all homes have a screen door, but what about a storm door? In New Hampshire (particularly around the coastline), it’s important to install a storm door for a variety of reasons. At Seacoast Replacement Windows, we’re here to provide both advise regarding storm doors and storm door installation services.
Why Install a Storm Door
- Front Door Protection. Front doors can be costly to install or repair, so why not protect you investment? The addition of a storm door in front of your entry door will provide protection against the New England weather such as rain, snow and UV rays that can cause the paint to fade or chip.
- Improve Energy Efficiency. Just as you have storm windows to add another layer of insulation to your home, a storm door acts the same way to trap heat and keep out the cold. A storm door is particularly useful for homeowners who don’t have an energy efficient front door and need another door to keep out the drafts during the winter.
- Prevent Insects. Storm doors are perfect for letting light in and keeping bugs out all year round. Many storm doors also have screen inserts that you can use during the warmer months. For those who have older wooden entry doors there may be an issue with invading bugs. Prevent carpenter ants and other insects from making a home within your wooden entry door by installing a glass storm door in front of it.
- Home Security. When it comes to keeping your home secure, adding another lock with the addition of a storm door is your best bet to deter theft and robbery. It’s important to consult our door installation and door replacement specialists regarding what type of glass door you want installed. Not all glass doors offer the same benefits, so if security is what you’re looking for, then be sure to mention this so we can recommend the right brand for your needs.
When To Install a Storm Door
Storm door installation does not take long, especially when you contact a professional such as Seacoast Replacement Windows. However, we do recommend that you opt for service during the warmer months, or at least during mild temperatures as we may need to keep your front door open during the installation process. If you’re interested in improving your home’s security as well as aesthetic look with the addition of a glass door, contact our door replacement specialists in New Hampshire today for a free estimate!
