As a relatively inexpensive way to boost the appeal and comfort of your home, a storm door comes with many benefits. You won’t be able to get as many perks from other investments that you make to your home, especially when you consider the cost of your investment. This is why a storm door might be a go-to when looking for increased comfort, more sunlight and an inexpensive way to boost the overall value of your Minnesota home.
A Quality Storm Door…
Protects the Main Entry Door
A storm door sits right outside the exterior door, which means that the regular door is going to be protected for years to come. Not only that, but you can help keep the outside elements outside and not leaking through the main door of the house.
Keeps Pests Outside/Keeps Kids and Pets Inside
You don’t have to worry about kids or pets going outside with this door. You can ensure that the pests stay outside, as well. No bugs or rodents are going to bother you inside your home when you have a storm door providing an extra barrier between you and the outdoors.
Can Increase Your Home’s Energy Efficiency
When you want to save money on operating and maintaining your home, then you want to make sure that you are choosing something that helps you keep your cool air and heat inside the home. This means providing that extra barrier that does so. A storm door can help you save money and reduce your energy loss in that opening by close to 50%. This is a big savings when considering the money that is saved from it. (The biggest heat loss/gain in a home is through window openings; door openings are the second major spot, so cutting energy lost here can make a big difference in your utility bills.)
Since you’re adding an extra layer for anyone to get through that can be locked and is hard to penetrate, you’re essentially adding protection that wouldn’t normally be there. This is great when you want to keep the home as safe as possible. Most home burglaries occur through the front door, and a locked storm door is another barrier of security.
