3 Factors to Consider for Your Storm Door Replacement

3 Important Features to Look for in a Storm Door

Storm doors do more than just shield your entry door against harmful elements. With a relatively low upfront cost, they can boost your comfort and reinforce your security. They also come in different styles to add visual interest to your home’s exterior.

To make the most of their benefits, it’s important to consider the essentials first. Asher Lasting Exteriors discusses three key features to look for:


Aluminum is the most popular material for storm doors because of its superior weather resistance and easy installation. It is sold in varying levels of thickness – the thicker the door, the more durable it is. Other storm doors come with a wood core, but they aren’t as sturdy as aluminum-clad units.

At Asher Lasting Exteriors, we offer quality storm doors from ProVia®. Their aluminum frames are 20% thicker than standard-grade doors sold through home improvement retailers. With over 54 models available, they offer excellent customization options to meet the functional and aesthetic needs of your home.

Style Of Door

Storm doors are available in two types: full- or partial-view. Full-view storm doors are dominated by glass and enclosed in an aluminum frame. They bring in ample natural lighting and provide a clearer view of the outdoors. They also highlight the beauty of your hinged entry doors. You can purchase them with interchangeable glass and screen panels to invite the fresh air in and keep the insects out.

Partial-view storm doors, on the other hand, don’t provide sufficient lighting or view. To enhance their functionality, you can use the bottom half for pet doors.


Similar to windows, you can select the type of glass for your storm doors. Low-emissivity (Low-E) glass is your perfect option if you want a full-view door that improves your home’s insulation. If your front door is exposed to the sun most of the day, opt for sun-blocking glass.
