Why every home needs a storm door


The weather is one of the most significant factors to consider when choosing any exterior feature for your home. Storm doors are fitted to the outside of your front door, and they operate separately from the entrance door itself. When whether or not to install a storm door, there are a number of factors that homeowners should keep in mind. It's important to understand the benefits and just how important such an investment can be to any home.

 

Additional protection

The front door of a home often shapes the impressions that visitors have regarding the rest of your home. If your entrance door is severely out of shape, they will usually expect to see a less than beautiful home hiding behind it. Apart from being an eyesore, a damaged entrance door is not as energy efficient as it should be, and this will affect your monthly bills of course. So, in order to get the most use out of your front door, it is a good idea to install a storm door. Storm doors protect against snow, ice, rain and various other damaging elements. Investing in a storm door will mean that your front door will last that much longer. Without a storm door, you will need to replace your front door sooner rather than later.

 

Attractive design

Storm doors aren't only functional, but they can also give the entrance of your home an additional touch of style. They are usually quite simple in appearance which means that they can suit any home, no matter the architectural design.

 

Multi-functionality

During the warmer months, homeowners can enjoy extra airflow and light since they won't need to keep both doors closed at all times. While temperatures are mild (in the early morning and later in the afternoon), you can leave your front door open while keeping your storm door shut. Enjoy the view of your front yard, fresh air, and the natural light that filters in! While enjoying all of these benefits, you will also keep pests and bugs from making themselves at home!

 

Improved energy efficiency

In the cold winter, you want your home to remain as warm as possible with minimal costs. Similarly, in the warmer summer months, you want to keep your home comfortably cool without keeping your air conditioner on 24/7. You can achieve this by ensuring maximum insulation and storm doors help do just that. Your storm door will add an extra layer on top of your entrance door that will help keep your home warm in during the winter and cool in the summer. No matter the weather, your storm door will help keep your energy costs as low as possible! 

 

Easy to install

Storm doors can be installed quickly and easily. They are versatile and can be fitted to any frame – regardless of the material. This makes it possible for anyone to find the perfect storm door to suit the front door of their home.

 

Extra security

Your storm door normally has its own locking system which means that you have an extra layer of protection against would-be intruders. If you don't have a peephole, you can keep your storm door locked and still open your front door without worrying about somebody entering uninvited. That extra protection can make all the difference by giving you additional seconds to lock and secure your door and the rest of your home if need be.

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

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.

Andy and his crew installed the windows as agreed and were extremely pleasant. The cleanup was exceptional. They arrived on time. I would recommend North Shield to anyone looking for new windows. The service was incredible, The pricing was very good. The sales person Jim Scammel was very informative and knowledgeable. We had quotes from five (5) companies and feel good with our decision. The overall product was exceptional, but Andy was the STAR!!!! We did 17 windows and a door, so this was an important decision to our family.

We love our new windows. It was a challenging job for the guys as we are on the second floor of a condo but they were very professional and up to the task. Windows look great inside and out.

We had our windows installed last summer and absolutely love them - especially the large kitchen window. Our sales rep Jim S. was terrific and knowledgeable. The installers did a professional, skilled job of installing our windows. And the windows themselves are high quality, easy to open and easy to clean - as well as reasonably priced. We are very happy with our entire experience with this company and highly recommend them. Thank you!
