Storm Doors

Choosing the right storm doors for your residence in Downriver MI takes some time and research. It’s not the kind of thing that’s advisable to do yourself, you should hire a company that specializes in door repairs and installation, like Adkins & Sons.  Let’s say you’ve chosen your entry doors, and are now contemplating storm doors. You can opt for wooden, fiberglass or steel storm doors. Our company has been working with top door manufacturers like Pella, Therma Tru, Provia and Trapp since 1979.  We offer the best expertise, quality and workmanship you can find in your home town.  You definitely want to choose a company that is insured and licensed, and can pull a permit for door replacement and installation if it’s required. Bottom line, the business should be certified and owned by someone who cares about their customers, whether it’s a small or large job. What should you look for in a storm door? Here are some tips to start with:
  • Choose the material you want, such as wood, steel, fiberglass or vinyl. Consider your budget and exterior style.
  • Make sure they come in a size you need. You may have an odd-shaped or overly tall door, so be careful when deciding on a new storm door. Ask the installation company if they can build you a custom storm door if necessary.
  • Find out what kind of locking mechanisms it offers and what kind of safety features it has.
  • Select a name brand like Pella or Trapp, for example, to be sure you get the best available.
