At Merrimack Valley Glass & Mirror, we work with many homes in the Merrimack Valley & Southeastern New Hampshire. With these houses we see many practices that work and don’t work when it comes to the functionality of the house. One of the improvements that we see a lot of people do is the installation of Storm Doors.
Storm doors do more than just help save money on heating costs by preventing drafts. Take a look at a few of the benefits we’ve seen by installing storm doors to your home:
Protects Your Main Door- A properly installed storm door will protect your main entrance into your home. “Regular” doors are much more expensive than storm doors. But storm doors will last 25-50 years. By installing a storm door, you are almost guaranteeing you the fact that you wont have to replace your regular door.
Keeps Undesirables Out- No are not talking door to door salesmen here folks, but inspects and rodents. A properly installed storm door will stop those pesky creatures from entering your home.
Natural Light- Storm doors give you the ability to open your home up to natural light during the summer without having to crank up your A/C. The natural light will open up your living areas, and make your home more inviting.
Fresh Air- Many storm doors come with the option to have the top half be screened in. This allows you to better ventilate your home and get fresh air during the summer, without having bugs fly in.
