As their name implies, storm doors protect the main, entry door to your home or business from the elements, serving as a barrier against damage from wind, rain, sleet, and more. Originally an essential addition to homes that featured all-wood entry portals, the change of materials used in the construction of exterior doors has made the protective utility of these styles less important.

Instead, they serve other functional purposes, such as giving an extra layer of security from intruders or helping temperature management and energy efficiency through insulation and airflow regulation.

However, like any functional element of your home, they are also an important aesthetic element of an entryway, capable of adding subtle style that makes a positive first impression.

From single-panel steel to units with decorative glass and retractable screens, there is a variety of styles available. These options allow homeowners to balance the need for curb appeal with the incredibly important protective functions, adding to the value of their homes.

DIY Installation vs. Hiring a Pro

In the case of a simple swap or when using a pre-hung, standard-size door, opting to install a storm unit yourself is a home improvement project for a DIYer. This project should take no more than a day and can even take as little as an hour or two, depending on the existing structure of the door.

The most important tip to keep in mind when hanging any door is the importance of the size and fit. The unit you buy must conform exactly to the height and width of the frame currently in place, or else the job gets much more complex. In the case of a wide opening, it is easier to compensate because many styles can be measured using a Z-bar or weather-stripping, which is less expensive than having a custom size made to order.

Beware of an inaccurate placement or usage of these materials, though, as they can lead to unevenly hung units or structural damage. Homeowners faced with a complex installation should consider hiring an experienced professional.

Cost to DIY

Professional installation costs add $75 to $400 to the below material costs. If your frame is already in place and you decide to DIY the installation, the price incurred would fall shy of $500.

DIY Installation Material Prices

Door$350
