Storm Door Installation

Storm Door InstallationInstalling a storm door may seem like a daunting, time-consuming task, but advances in manufacturing and design have made the process easy enough for the average homeowner to complete start-to-finish in a single afternoon.

Next, measure the height and width of the frame from the inside of the exterior trim pieces. It is a good idea to measure the width at the top, middle, and bottom of the door. If there is any variation, use the narrowest width measurement.

Major home improvement chains and hardware stores offer pre-hung storm door kits in the most commonly used door sizes—30-, 32-, 34- and 36-inches.Storm Door Installation - Z Bar Expander custom-sized door or purchase an extender kit to fill the extra space between door and frame.

Such kits are sold with installation and operating hardware, although handles and locksets are often sold separately. The storm door connects to the frame with hinges and has either a hydraulic or pneumatic door closer that pulls the door closed automatically.

A typical storm door installation project will take about four hours. However, industry leader Andersen Windows recently introduced a new system, the 45-Minute Rapid Install Storm Door.

The doors come pre-hung in the factory with drip caps, sweep, and lock case already in place. A self-squaring clip system is also built in, along with pre-drilled closer bracket holes and a new closer jamb bracket design. The handle set twists and locks securely in place without the use of set screws or tools.

Available at select dealers and The Home Depot, Andersen’s Rapid Install system is available in multiple sizes, eight colors, three hardware finishes and a variety of clear or decorative glass options.

Today’s storm doors are much more stylish than the white, black, or brown styles of days past. A variety of fashionable colors and decorative effects are now offered, benefiting homeowners with personalized choices for enhanced curb appeal.

When shutters came into vogue courtesy of Mrs. Koch's latest issue of McCall's,soon every house on the block, & then the subdivision all sported shuttered windows, purely decorative, of no wind-protection value whatsoever. Next, we hung pseudo-Dutch storm doors, big black hinges bolted onto air, all show, no swing-door action. We strived to be like everyone else, normal, sane, living within strict 1950 rules. I was an only child growing up in this house, a house that looked like everyone elses, with a mother that looked like everyone elses. I did all the things a girl did to be just like her mommy, made mud pies in the back yard, played dress-up in her cast off finery, dresses all tulle & flounce, shoes high-heeled, white satin virginal...
