Is your family suffering from the negative effects of uncomfortable drafts, high energy bills, and a lack of natural light and fresh air inside your home?
If so, a storm door may be the perfect investment for your Missouri home. Storm doors are installed right outside your front door to provide your house with an extra layer of protection in harsh weather conditions. Plus, these doors can help to regulate your home’s internal temperature, reduce noise levels, and lower utility expenses at all times of the year.
Keep reading to discover the excellent benefits your home will experience after you invest in a durable, lasting storm door!
Valuable Benefits of Storm Doors
1. Energy Savings
Your front door likely has small cracks and crevices that allow drafts into your home, requiring your heater or air conditioner to work harder to keep your home at a comfortable temperature.
Fortunately, storm doors seal your home against air leaks, so you can extend the lifespan of your utilities and enjoy reduced energy bills each month.
2. Extra Insulation
If your home’s internal temperature drastically fluctuates with the weather, you’ll notice a positive change in your family’s comfort levels after installing storm doors.
Since these doors provide an extra barrier of insulation between your home and the elements, they keep cool air inside your home and the warm air outside, where it belongs!
3. Extreme Weather
Missouri weather can have very dry, bitter cold winters and hot, humid summers. All it takes is one wind-driven rain, snow, or ice storm to cause damaging leaks in your home. Fortunately, storm doors offer an extra barrier of protection from uncomfortable drafts, frigid air, and harsh weather conditions to keep your home safe and warm in the winter.
4. Refreshing Ventilation
During the spring and summer, utilize the screen in your storm door to allow fresh breezes into your home. When it’s hot and humid in the afternoon, you can simply close your front door until you’re ready to welcome the cool, refreshing evening air.
5. Natural Light
If you wish your home had more windows, storm doors are an excellent investment. You can open your entry door and allow natural light to flood your home through your storm door’s sizable glass panels!
6. Pest Defense
Storm doors make it possible to allow fresh air and natural sunlight into your home—while keeping the bugs out. Prevent insects, rodents, and other pests from entering your home, even when your front door is open, with a high-quality storm door.
7. Entry Door Protection
Unfortunately, without a storm door, your front door is vulnerable to damage from poor weather conditions. Rain, ice, and the sun’s rays can cause dents, scrapes, and fading that will require continual maintenance.
When you install a storm door, you’re not only protecting your home’s interior from the elements. You’re also investing in your entryway’s curb appeal and longevity by protecting your front door from the elements, too!
8. Quieter Home
You’ll notice neighborhood noises, like machinery, barking dogs, and noisy engines fade into the background after installing a storm door.
Since these doors provide an extra barrier between your home and the outside world, they also create a buffer between frustrating outdoor noises and your home, so you can enjoy living in a peaceful environment.
9. Attractive Appearance
Many homeowners are hesitant to install a storm door because they are afraid it will negatively impact their home’s curb appeal. This couldn’t be further from the truth!
You can choose your storm door’s material, color, style, hardware, and glass to create a look that perfectly complements your exterior.
10. Additional Security
It’s no secret that keeping your family safe is one of your top priorities—and investing in a storm door can help you accomplish this goal with ease.
Storm doors provide an extra barrier between your home and the outside world, and many come with advanced locks and security features to keep your home and family safe.
11. Resale Value
Are you now convinced that a storm door is an excellent investment for your home? If so, you can be confident that future buyers will think so, too!
