Storm Doors

All storm doors are simplistically functioning in nature, but come in a wide variety of styles and materials. The storm doors that are made today, serve the same purpose as storm doors that were made years ago…they basically are installed in front of an existing exterior access door, to shield the exterior door from weather elements like rain and winds, while also providing ventilation & protection from insects via inserted screens. Blocking the severe elements in fall & winter and allowing natural light & air flow through during the spring & summer, is what makes storm doors highly useful and effective in Canadian climates. Our company manufactures and carries in stock storm doors that have interchangeable capabilities, with both glass panels and screen panels, which makes it far easier to keep these types of doors in tip top condition (or change up a style for more curb appeal or decorating designs).

Trending & Traditional Styles

Nowadays, our storm doors are manufactured with a smorgasbord of stylish material options, insulating features and a fantastic colour collection. Armed with over 30 different styles of storm doors, we offer our customers a great way to ‘design your own door’ with touches that reflect their own style, and stay within a wide scope of set budgets! Styles range from modernist, contemporary, modern, classic, traditional, rustic, farmhouse and many more (so you can capture the precise ‘look’ you are envisioning for your storm doors). You have various choices with glass and designer hardware pieces to further bring your storm doors together, to tie in the desired type of style. One of the more important factors that you will want to decide on while checking out our collections of storm doors is which type of storm door would work best for your home. Ventilating storm doors include a full or half screen that is always in position on the door. The retractable screen storm doors have a screen feature that rolls up into the frame of the door when its not in use. Our full-view storm doors are made up of a full-glass panel with an optional interchangeable full-screen for easy season-switching.

Quality Materials

Our company uses a variety of materials to create a more expansive swath of choices, from wood, to aluminium, to PVC, to fibreglass. As many people are attracted to wood doors, wooden storm doors are generally used with full-screens, which makes it lightweight and paintable in any colour (it will need a protective coating to extend its life from the elements). It is possible to increase the thickness of a wood storm door to accommodate glass panels, which in turn would make the wood door more rigid & durable. Aluminium storm doors have a corrosion repelling advantage, they do not need to be painted and come in various thicknesses which can accommodate glass and screen panels or both (aluminium does have one downside, they are brittle at the corners where the frame is held together). When it comes to PVC (vinyl) and fibreglass storm doors, these two materials offer the most perks. Fibreglass and PVC can be moulded to provide a wood-grain look, they are made from durable steel frames that are then covered in these materials. Both fibreglass and PVC materials have their pros and cons, they are a bit more expensive (but less so than wood) and the thicker the storm doors frame, the more durable, but costly it can be. PVC and fibreglass storm doors offer great protection from scratching, warping, discolour, expand, peel, contract or crack. PVC doors are welded at the corners, which makes them far more durable, and there are no screws that would normally cause wear & tear that can cause separation at the corners.

Additional Options

For all weather months, it is a wise move to continuously ensure that there is weather stripping all around the perimeter of the storm doors. Our helpful team of door experts can assist you with information and guidance when it is time to choose and install weather stripping. Our storm doors come with tempered glass, but you can opt to increase the energy efficiency of your full-glass storm doors by adding low-e glazing. Other additional options include choices with hardware, upgrading weather stripping, requesting heavy duty hinges, hydraulic or pneumatic closers vs. springs and chains and keyed deadbolt locks, just to name a few. The glass panel in your storm doors do not have to be plain, you can opt to have your glass etched, beveled, stained or leaded.
