For most people living in or moving into their forever-home, reinforcing security is a top priority.
Keeping your house secure ensures that kids, pets and valuables all remain safe so you can have peace of mind. For that reason, securing your front door is arguably the most important area of your home to maintain!
When it comes to entry doors in Toronto, Clera Windows and Doors has got you covered. We’ve pinpointed 3 ways to maximize your front door security.
Install Storm Doors
What’s better than a strong front door? A door in front of the door!
First and foremost, storm doors provide an additional layer of security to your home (along with many other benefits). By installing a screen door ahead of your front door, you are essentially building a second barrier to entry, reducing the chances of unwanted visitors.
Storm doors also act as a secondary buffer to outside elements. This means that in the cold Canadian winters, you can open your front door without getting gusts of snow and wind indoors. On top of that, storm doors operate as insulators, keeping warm or cold air indoors, and preventing air leakage. As a result, storm doors often maximizes energy efficiency and can cut down on heating or cooling system costs.
If you choose to purchase a storm door and customize it with large glass panelling, using energy star glass can further maximize energy efficiency while illuminating your home. Clera windows offer a wide variety of products with energy star rated glass to ensure our consumers get the high quality they deserve.
Every energy star rated product has passed a series of screenings and energy efficiency tests. For those with pets or young children that may want to see the outside without world without actually going out, storm doors are ideal.
Lastly, storm doors take the first hit when it comes to dirt, wind and other external elements—saving your entry doors in the process. As a result, with the addition of storm doors, you’ll save on maintenance costs on your entry doors in Toronto and keep it in pristine condition with zero effort!
