Important Terms about Storm Windows & Doors

Storm windows and doors serve a variety of valuable functions. Their ability to provide insulation can make a house more energy efficient, and they can also help ventilate your home. If you are looking to buy some storm windows and doors for your house, you may be confused by terminology often used to describe them. So below we'll define some of the important terms relating to storm windows and doors.

  • Storm door - A door installed on the outside of a house's exterior-access door. Storm doors serve several purposes, among them providing insulation and protecting the regular door from the elements. Their frames are typically made of wood, aluminum, or plastic material such as vinyl. Storm doors come in three types: full-view, ventilating, and retractable.
  • Full-view storm door - A type that has a single replaceable glass or screen panel.
  • Retractable screen storm door - A type that has a screen that can be rolled up when necessary.
  • Ventilating storm door - A type with both glass and screen panels. The glass panels can be moved to provide a greater or lesser degree of ventilation.
  • Storm window - An additional window installed in the frame of a home's outside-facing window. Interior storm windows are installed on the inside of a house. Exterior storm windows are installed on the outside of the window it protects. Unlike interior models, they can also help protect a window from hail and severe weather conditions.
  • Casement window - A type whose panels are attached by hinges to the side of the frame.
  • Replacement window - The term for a new window built into an existing opening.

    Storm windows and doors provide extra weather protection needed during colder months. They keep out the cold and seal in the heat, providing a barrier between the outside and inside. They are more secure than screen doors and come in a variety of materials, from glass and fiberglass to metal and aluminum. Usually, homeowners put screens on their doors in the summer and install exterior storm doors during the winter. Windows are usually protected all year round by storm windows, with the option of a screen. Contractors and other consumers can purchase storm windows and doors at home improvement stores, specialty window and door shops, glass dealers, and online. Companies that sell storm windows and doors may also sell accessories as well, such as tracks, shutters, panels, and screens. Often times, contractors buy bulk storm windows and doors when building new homes and offices, or installing additions such as basements. Wholesalers may be the best bet, as they typically provide bulk discounts off large quantities. If a home owner needs just one storm door or window, he or she may be best off heading to a retailer. Some dealers of storm windows and doors offer services such as repair, installation, and replacement by qualified experts. Usually, customers have the option of buying the products and installing them on their own or paying extra for a professional to do the job, whether that involves replacement of old windows or installing brand new ones. Some providers also make custom storm windows and doors for those looking for something a bit more unique. Consumers looking for more information on this topic can check out the Internet or visit a local home improvement store to view selections. Product line may include wood shutters, treatments, paneling, side windows, and metal and aluminum storm doors.
