When you think of a security screen or storm door it probably conjures up pictures of something that’s bulky, dark and downright ugly. In fact modern day varieties are far from this. Yes they’re designed to be super-strong, but they’re also cleverly designed to fit the look and feel of your property so they don’t stand out like a sore thumb. Aside from this what are the other benefits that a storm door or security screen has?
As the name implies security screens give protection against unwanted guests and are designed to improve the security of your exterior doors. Utilising a steel or wrought iron frame they’ll offer far greater protection from any form of attempted intrusion. They also come with heavy-duty keyed locks and non-removable pin hinges giving you total peace-of-mind.
Adds curb appeal
As already stated storm doors and security screens are available in a wide variety of colours and styles to match a wide variety of home décors. Potential buyers may well be ‘won over’ by the thought that your property already has built in security and as a result it’s a great selling point and one that could add value.
Did you know that over half of all our annual electricity bills goes on ventilation and heating? Did you also know that by having a security door fitted you can easily cut these costs? During the warmer months you can safely leave your front door open letting in much needed breezes, reducing the need for air conditioning. During the winter months our screens are easily designed to be replaced with glass panels thus creating an insulating layer between your front door and your security. This in turn is going to reduce heat loss saving you money on heating bills.
Storm doors and security screens can give you the added comfort, beauty and convenience of a window with the protection of an exterior door. They are designed to let in plenty of natural light while ventilating your home with cooling breezes.
