Storm, Security and other Door Types
Installing a new entry door can make a huge difference in your home's appearance and help weatherproof your home to reduce heating and cooling bills. Whether you’re shopping for a new entry door or a security or storm door – there are hundreds of options and choosing one can be difficult. Do you need a door that offers beauty, protection or both? Most people strictly look for the door that they think will give their home a nice look. However, entry doors are typically purchased with specific benefits in mind like security or storm protection.
When choosing a door for security, the best types are those made of wood or steel. Both options provide adequate security, as well as options for customization. While steel doors are usually inexpensive and require less maintenance, wood doors add value and a very unique style to your home.
Storm doors tend to be for a specific function. They are meant provide insulation and save energy, and can provide good protection as well. The best storm doors are often made of steel and glass, but are also available in wood and screen material.
