7 Benefits of Installing Storm Doors

Installing a storm door might be something you haven’t thought of, but here’s why you should move it to the top of your home improvement to-do list.

More Natural Light
A bright entryway is more inviting, but without a storm door, an entry door must remain shut, blocking natural light. Long foyers are especially susceptible to being dark and dreary. Installing a storm door allows you to leave your front door open, allowing natural light to create a bright and welcoming space.

Exterior Door Protection
An entry door is a valuable investment. And because it can make or break your curb appeal, you want it to stay looking like new for as long as possible. A storm door can help protect your primary door from rain, ice and snow, reducing the costs of maintenance and helping it last longer.

Enhanced Curb Appeal
With stylish new hardware, beautiful glass designs, retractable screens and 12 colors to choose from, there are countless ways to personalize a storm door to complement the architectural aesthetic of your entryway. Our personal favorite this season: Pella® Select® 6000 Edessa in Hartford Green.

Better Air Circulation
Take advantage of nice weather with storm doors that offer seasonal ventilation with an interchangeable full screen. Whether you want to catch the breeze or watch the rain fall, Pella Select and Fullview storm doors feature full glass panels that can be switched out with a full screen at any time.

Improved Energy Efficiency
Storm doors provide a buffer against summer heat and winter cold. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, storm doors can reduce energy loss up to 50 percent.

A Safer Home
All Pella® storm doors come with a built-in keyed lock that is separate from a home’s primary door adding an additional barrier against intruders.

A Warm Welcome
This benefit is often overlooked by homeowners, but is so impactful. The beauty of storm doors is that they create a more inviting entry for guests. If the entry door is open and they can see inside, guests know that you are home.
