Storm doors provide a protective barrier between the elements and your entry door, but also allow you more ways to let light and air into your home. These doors are typically vinyl or aluminum framed units with a large glass, Plexiglas, or screen panel center. A common attribute of most storm doors is the pneumatic cylinder―or “closer”―that pulls the door shut.
Entry Doors & Door Units
The entry door is a mixture of decorative options and functional components that are combined to emphasize the character of your home. Most entry doors are not just simply a door, but are part of a full unit with decorative window components that can be ordered to accommodate almost any lockset and deadbolt combination.
Used on the rear of the home as an access to the yard or deck, these doors are large units that are a great source of natural light, combining a rigid frame with a large area of glass. Like windows, patio doors come in many styles, colors, materials, and can be sliding or hinged to fit the needs of your home.
These are simple doors with minimal features that are used frequently to gain access to garage and storage spaces. Service doors are designed for security more so than any other feature.
Wood, vinyl, fiberglass and metal are all common materials used in the manufacturing of doors. Most entry and service doors have a wood frame, are insulated, have a fiberglass or metal exterior cladding, and can be ordered with reinforced steel frames.
The best practice in door replacement is to replace not only the door or “slab”, but to replace the entire unit―the slab, frame, hardware, and sill. Removing and replacing the entire unit not only prevents costly problems at the time of installation, but also ensures that the unit will be covered by the manufacturer’s warranty.
