A quality storm door can protect your investment in an entrance door and give you he ability to let the sun in. I knew I needed to install a storm door because my front porch is not covered. I have a very nice wooded door that I don’t want exposed to the elements. Larson makes high quality storm doors that are very easy to install. I chose the Larson Secure Elegance storm door. This one is pretty heavy because the it has very thick UV glass. A fist won’t break it!
Some considerations you must think about include the direction your house faces. Heat will build up between the two doors. If your house gets direct morning or afternoon sun you might have some problems because the excessive heat may affect your door. But if you decide to take the plunge and get one, then there’s no reason not to do it yourself. It’s pretty simple if you are a little handy. If you’re still not sure whether or not to try it then check out the video I made showing how easy it is to do. I believe the video will help you get your courage up. Good luck!
