Storm doors were a typical feature included in with houses in the past. Installed on the outside of the front door, they are exposed to the elements. Having two outside doors may be considered a nuisance and a money pit by some folks. However, this is absolutely not the case. In fact, storm doors, and specifically, security storm doors can provide numerous benefits to the property owner.

Another Layer of Security

The primary purpose of a security storm door is to form an additional secure barrier for the home and homeowner. A component of these doors is usually a dead bolt lock which can be engaged from within the house, denying any possible threat easy access. In addition, these sturdy doors allow the front door to be opened to greet a knock at the door while removing to possibility of the person knocking pushing into the house. While the security storm door allows the home owner to view the visitor, an obstacle still remains for the potential intruder. A common threat today is upon opening the front door having an interloper forcing their way past you and into the house. This type of door provides a denial for this style of assault. These doors are built specifically to add this layer of protection.

Better Defense from Mother Nature

Security storm doors also shield the front entrance from hostile weather. Due to the fact they are placed on the outside of the front door, they provide a barrier to stop rain, snow, hail and sun damage. Typically these doors are built with glass or metal panels and some type of screening, and usually reinforced with wood. The placement outside the front door means the security storm door will bear the brunt of nature’s wrath. As front doors are expensive and difficult to replace, this is a more practical alternative to changing out a front door every couple years. These protective doors are much less expensive and significantly easier to replace. This guards both your bank account and your front entrance.

Environmentally Responsible

In addition to the above features, energy efficient is another benefit of security storm doors. They assist in reducing the electrical requirements of the house, further reducing your houses energy footprint. The house can be kept cooler in the summer by allowing the doors to be opened and creating air circulation. This also allows in more sunlight and reduces the need for artificial light. With the front door open, normally there would be concern about natures elements intruding, but with the security storm door, this is concern is removed. The glass and screen of the door will deter weather, insects and pollutants while allowing in fresh air and plenty of natural light. As the front door is a primary area of heat and cold loss, the additional layer helps minimize the transfer of cold to hot and vice versa. This lowers your heating and cooling costs, while keeping the house warmer in winter and cooler in summer.

The myriad of benefits of security storm doors include security, protection for the elements and environmental conscientiousness. In the end it is an economical way to benefit you and your house for years to come.
