There are several reasons why you would want to add a storm door over any exterior wood doors or decorative entries that grace the portals of your home. If you live in a storm-prone area youll probably even want to install one if your doors are made of durable metal. A storm door not only increases security by providing an extra potentially locked layer of protection between your family and the outside world but it also helps protect your beautiful exterior wood doors from severe weather damage. Keep in mind though these reasons only apply to storm doors that are properly fitted and hung which means you need to take the right measurements in order to actually protect your exterior wood doors and get the most out of your storm doors.
Measuring Height When youre measuring for height its not enough to just measure in one spot. Instead measure in three places from the top of the threshold to the underside of the top trim. Start by positioning the tape measure on the top of the threshold which may be made of brass silver wood or concrete. Bring the tape measure all the way up to the inside of the top trim. Your measurement should be somewhere between 80 and 81 inches if your home is new. If the home is older the measurement for your wooden exterior doors may be between 96 and 97 inches. Now you need to take this measurement twice more.
Measuring the dimensions of the exterior door can help you out in selecting the Storm door of appropriate size that will fit better. • Type of the door: Selecting the right type of the security door is very important. There are several types available made from glass to those made from aluminium and wood. A security door for storms should be selected such that it is strong enough to make the intruder get frustrated while breaking it open. The stronger the door more the amount of time required to break it open and greater the chances of the burglar getting caught. Thus for this purpose doors made of aluminium are most preferred.
Hinges knobs and closure devices which are not as effective as they where when new can easily be replaced to restore the door to like new condition. The little clips that serve to hold the glass in place for the winter months may also start to show signs of wear after a few years. These clips allow the home owner to remove the glass and replace it with a screen as the temperatures start to rise. Replacement of these clips helps to ensure that glass is held securely in place to prevent breakage due to a broken clip. Larson offers many of their parts shipped directly to consumers from their website. Other parts will need to be shipped to a local distributor due to the logistics of shipping. Parts such as glass windows and screens that are already in the frame are among those that need to be shipped to the dealer rather than the customer directly.
