The Most Popular Storm Door Styles


A storm door may not seem like much protection when there's a blizzard going on outside, but they're an incredibly important part of your house's design. And they don't just protect you from the worst of the rain and snow; they also allow you to let sunlight into your home without welcoming the bugs that seem to flourish every summer.

A storm door is a fairly simple renovation that can have a significant impact on how much you enjoy your home. You should be well informed before you purchase the storm door that’s right for you.

To figure out what kind of storm door would be best suited to your home, take a look at the most popular options, compiled below so you can easily compare and contrast them before making a final decision:

Full View Storm Door

Made up entirely out of etched glass, these storm doors protect your home from the worst of the elements while also letting in a lot of sunlight. If you want to be able to go a couple extra hours before turning on your hallway light, a full view storm door is the best option for you.

Hi View Storm Door

These storm doors are half glass and half screen. This allows for great ventilation as well as some extra sunlight. It's also great for cool summer evenings, because it keeps the mosquitoes out of your home so you can truly enjoy summer.

One Lite Storm Door

Like the Full View Storm Doors, these storm doors are made up completely of etched glass. The biggest difference between the two models is that One Lite Storm Doors are made with durability in mind. They're so well built you can literally hang off the door without worrying about bringing it down.

Self Storing Storm Door

Half glass and half mesh, these storm doors come with an adjustable screen so you can completely control how much air is allowed to pass through your home at any given moment. They also have a double-leaf hinge, making them the most durable option on this list.

Tri-Lite Storm Door

The Tri-Lite Storm Door is quickly becoming the most popular option because it combines functionality with an elegant, modern look. It uses a combination of etched glass and adjustable mesh screens to allow airflow through your home while still protecting you from the storms that seem to be growing more frequent every year.

Winnipeg has always been known for its cold winters and variable weather. A high quality storm door can improve your quality of life, get air flowing through your home and help protect you from the worst storms—all at the same time. Better yet, it adds an extra layer of beauty to your home and can even add value when it comes time to sell the house.

A storm door is a great investment if you want to truly enjoy your home no matter what the weather is like outside.

Likely a good company for windows, installers seemed competent. However for doors they seemed to have much less experience. My salesman left the company midway through the process and I wasn't informed, and turns out some miscommunication between him and I led to a product I didn't want. The door is nice, just not what I had thought I ordered, and it took about 4 months to get, so I accepted it. The paint also chipped after they left, which leaves a bad feeling (even though that's more of a manufacturer issue than NorthShield issue). I'm not saying these guys are going to be bad for you, but I'm not thrilled with my result. REPLY December 5, 2018: I had called about the paint chip and wrong door options already at the time and was told there was no recourse for me. The paint chip was there when I came home from work after the door was installed, but you provided a picture the installers took before the paint was chipped, so at that time I was told there was no recourse. The wrong options I was told was due to a salesman who took my order having left the company, and there was no paperwork showing my chosen option (no door handle hole to be cut). I will call again tomorrow and update this with the results of that conversation.

Alex and the team at north shield were amazing. Great customer service, along with a great team of installers. North shield replaced my 2 front living room windows in 1 day. They even took away my awning! Highly recommended

Very professional workers that despite finding, no vapor barrier and wood rot on our deck, fixed it right and continued to install our very beautiful door and side light without complaint. I would highly recommend Northshield to any friends, neighbors or anyone else. I am a very Happy, Happy Gal with my beautiful new door!

Installation crew showed up on time. Brought coverings and tarps to contain any mess. Installation went smoothly and the guys were very polite and considerate. The old windows and frames were removed and the jobsite was clean when they left. Great work at a good price! Thanks Andy and Serge.

Jim gave us a great price, and I was also very happy with the installation team. Great workmanship, product, hey we’re friendly and clean. I am left feeling good about the company we chose to do our windows. I would certainly not hesitate in recommending them.
