4 Great Benefits Of Installing Storm Doors
Storm doors are a great home improvement project for a number of reasons, form energy efficiency to the cost vs. value. At Lumber One, we’re proud to sell EMCO, Andersen and Larson storm doors to our loyal customers at both our Avon and Cold Spring retail store locations. A new storm door typically lasts 25 years or more!
The beautiful thing about Lumber One retail locations is that you can purchase your storm door, and then choose to install it yourself – a fun 2-4 hour weekend project for most homeowners – or have us come install it for you!
Here are some great reasons to purchase a new storm door from Lumber One, whether you plan to install it yourself or not!
3. Add Protection To Your Home
Wouldn’t it be nice to add another layer of protection to your home? Discourage burglars by giving them one more lock to get through or noisy window to break before they can get in the home. It will either keep them away or slow them down, both of which are extremely valuable in this highly unlikely but scary situation.
4. Reduce Your Energy Costs
Even with an energy efficient entry door, storm doors are a great way to provide an extra buffer between your home and the summer heat or winter cold. Certain storm doors we carry can reduce energy loss by up to 50%! The energy savings occurs because of two things: it creates a barrier between you and the exterior, but it also creates an insulating air pocket between the two doors, which aids in insulation.
