Even though your fiberglass front door provides protection for your home, it also functions as an attractive statement piece. Adding a storm door to your fiberglass door can help ensure even longer-lasting use, improved security, and enhanced style. Could your home benefit from this addition? Here, New Jersey Siding & Windows, Inc., offers several reasons why you should consider using a storm door with your fiberglass entry door.

Do I Have to Use a Storm Door with a Fiberglass Entry Door?

In a word, no. Fiberglass entry doors are built to stand up to harsh weather and other damaging effects. They’re also excellent for security purposes and offer a high level of insulation, keeping your home more comfortable and helping to lower utility bills.

At the same time, there are many reasons to combine a storm door with your entry door, and there’s a great chance you’ll be happy you did.

What Are the Benefits of Combining a Storm Door and a Fiberglass Entry Door?

Whether you’re interested in protecting your entry door or adding a touch of flair to your house’s exterior, these are just a few of the reasons to consider using a storm door in addition to your fiberglass entry door:

Protection from the Elements

Your fiberglass front door is durable enough to deliver years of performance and good looks. Still, harsh New Jersey winters with rain, snow, ice, and hail can take a toll. A storm door provides an added layer of protection from damage and wear-and-tear due to the elements and other hazards, including dents, scuffs, cracks, and more. That means your front door will look vibrant, fresh, and like new for longer, protecting your investment and the aesthetically pleasing appearance of your home.

Enhanced Energy Efficiency

Our storm doors are designed to create a tight seal when closed. This means they form a pocket of air between your entry door and outside temperatures that provides added insulation for your home. When used alongside a quality entry door, adequate insulation, and efficient windows, a storm door is a great way to help keep the thermostat lower and ensure your family is more comfortable all winter long.

Natural Light without Irritating Pests

Love natural light but hate mosquitoes, gnats, and flies? Open your fiberglass entry door on beautiful spring, summer, and fall days to let warm light flood your foyer while keeping pests at bay. It’s a great way to brighten dark halls and entryways to make your home feel more inviting. Plus, you’ll still enjoy the security of a locked door for street-facing entrances.

A More Attractive Front Door Appearance

Beyond their functional benefits, storm doors can also boost your curb appeal and add personality to your home’s entrance. We offer storm doors with a variety of attractive designs and configurations, as well as numerous colors to suit almost any aesthetic. For an added touch of elegance, consider models with detailed patterns to draw the eye and catch the sunlight. It’s also possible to customize your storm door’s hardware for a unique look that’s perfectly suited to your existing entry door and your home’s overall appearance.
