Are you considering installing a storm door in front of your entry door, but are not sure whether it’s worth it? Perhaps you’re having a difficult time finding a style you like, you can’t make heads or tails of the quality differences from one brand to the next, or that the thought of installing it yourself is holding you back.

Whatever the case may be, rest assured that installing a storm door almost always proves to be beneficial in the long run. To help keep the decision-making process quick and easy, be sure to call the experts at Valley!

Having a storm door will provide you the following benefits (and more):

Additional Entry Door Protection

Some of the higher quality entry doors made today are constructed in a way that helps them resist sun damage and water damage. However, reducing an entry door’s exposure to the elements with a new storm door can often help maintain its beauty and increase its lifespan, saving you money in the long run.

Enhanced Energy Efficiency

If you have an entry door that is somewhat old, chances are that it has become drafty. This means that your heating and cooling systems work harder to maintain a desired temperature, raising your energy bills in the process. Adding a quality storm door will minimize drafts through your entry door, acting as a secondary barrier from the exterior.

Added Ventilation for your Home

During the months when outdoor temperatures are pleasant, having a storm door with a screen option lets you keep your entry door open, letting fresh air in while still having the protection of a lockable front door.


Extra Layer of Security

Any storm door can provide you with a better sense of security than an entry door alone. However, security storm doors help to add an even higher level of security to your home. Many security storm doors also bring a decorative flair to your home as well.
