Your front door is more than just an entryway. It makes a statement that impacts your curb appeal, the first impression of your home, and how you welcome guests.
Equally important to your front entry door is your storm door, a second door placed outside of your entry door. “Some people might think a storm door is unnecessary, but it’s time to think again,” said Christi Pryor, Marketing Manager with Callen. “If you value comfort, a storm door is an essential addition to your home”
The benefits of a storm door include:
Additional Light and Fresh Air
The presence of a storm door allows you to open your entry door when it’s sunny outside, letting natural light in to create a brighter space, which is more inviting for family and guests. Solid storm doors are made with glass sections that will allow the sun to stream into your home.
In addition to solid storm doors, screened storm doors allow additional sunlight into the house. “Screens are included with most of Callen’s storm door models,” said Christi. “Screens also offer ventilation without letting the outside elements in. Your home gets fresh air when your screened door can allow you to enjoy the cool breeze or soft rain.”
Protection of Your Entry Door
Your entry door is the essence of your home, so it’s important to protect it from all of the outside elements, including rain, ice, and snow. “This is especially important in colder climates,” Christi said. “The addition of a storm door helps you spend less money on maintaining your entry door, and your entry door will most likely last longer. It’s really a win-win.”
Increase in Curb Appeal
“When people think of storm doors, they sometimes picture white, dirty, shaky doors they’ve seen in old movies, or even sometimes on their grandparent’s houses,” she said. “The opposite couldn’t be truer. Each ProVia storm door installed by Callen experts is designed so you love your new door.”
Callen’s ProVia storm doors come in dozens of models and numerous colors, as well as added thickness, height, and durability. “Your new door will be anything but boring,” said Christi.
According to the United States Department of Energy, storm doors can reduce energy bills up to 50%. These doors act as an added layer of protection from the heat and cold. “Extra insulation never hurts,” Christi said. “A storm door prevents the leaks and air drafts that may be present in your existing entry door that let the cold air out in the summer and the warm air out in the winter.”
Callen understands some homeowners seek a door for light and ventilation, while others would like a stylish door that adds curb appeal while safeguarding the entry door. “Whatever your needs are, Callen’s ProVia product line has the right door for you,” said Christi. “Along with Callen’s workmanship guarantee and professional installers, the process of adding a storm door will be seamless.”
