Screen vs Storm Doors

Screen door and storm door have long been used interchangeably, but there is a definite difference between screen doors and storm doors.

Doors from The Combination Door Company may be either screen only doors or combination storm doors made of wood.

Doors from Larson are considered storm doors and will either be aluminum or have a surface over a solid wood core.

Screen doors are exactly as the name says: a door with a screen.

While the frame can be made of a variety of materials, the most common types have wooden frames and very few components. They provide protection from pests and bugs while letting in air continuously.

Storm doors have a few more parts and pieces to them with the major difference being the glass panel.

The glass panel comes in various sizes depending on the view type. The design allows for fresh air on-demand so homeowners can let in the fresh air when they want it and close it when the elements don’t allow for fresh air. Additionally, the glass keeps elements like rain and wind out.
