10 Easy Pieces: Wooden Storm Doors

July 24, 2019

As winter approaches and the storm season sets in, it’s time to install or upgrade your front door’s storm glass. Most readily available storm doors come in cheaper aluminum, PVC, or fiberglass, but it’s said that a well-finished wood storm door can last up to 50 years. Here are our favorite options, all fairly minimal in style and with the option to switch the glass for a screen in warmer months.
