Our team at Port City Hurricane Shutters wants to help you and everyone else in your household stay safe in the event of a storm or natural disaster. To do this, we offer a range of high-quality storm doors, and we encourage every homeowner to invest in these doors in order to protect their property. In this article, we’ll elaborate further on the reasons why we encourage everyone to invest in storm doors for their homes.
- Protection. The main reason why you need storm doors is, of course, to protect your primary door from damage. Your front door is a significant part of your home’s overall curb appeal, so it’s only natural to want to keep it looking its best, and a storm door will help do that. It will protect your primary door from rain, snow, wind, and the other elements so that it doesn’t weather or fade. It also offers greater protection from high-speed winds.
- Energy Efficiency. Another reason to invest in storm doors for your home is that they can increase a home’s overall energy efficiency. Storm doors provide an added layer of protection against heat transfer, which means that your HVAC system won’t have to work as hard to maintain your desired temperature–with a front door and a storm door, you will essentially have your own airlock to keep heat energy in or out of your home as you choose.
- Natural Light. Storm doors also give you a way to let more natural light into your home, without also opening your door to insects or other pests that may come in. Simply open the primary door while leaving the transparent storm door shut to block entry to these critters. We even offer different glass view varieties that slide down with screened protection!
