Whether your storm door is broken or just in need of an update, you can call us to help. You can also learn how to install a new one with a little patience and basic DIY skills. Here’s what to expect when installing a storm door.
Measure the Frame – Whether you’re planning to buy glass storm doors, insulated storm doors, or basic storm doors, you need to measure before you buy. Take the width of the existing storm door frame in three spots: the top, the middle, and the bottom. Then measure the height of the storm door frame. Record all these measurements from the inside of the door frame.
Research Your Options – Over time, most homes settle, shifting by small increments here and there, particularly at corners such as doorframes. The other option: Use your measurements to create a custom door that will fit exactly.
Decide on the Swing – If you are purchasing an off-the-shelf replacement storm door, you will need to decide on your door’s swing; it may open to the right or to the left, and in or out. Place the door on an elevated surface, such as an outdoor worktable or two sawhorses. Secure the hinges with screws on the correct side for your swing.
Finalize the Fit – Prop up the door in the opening to make sure it fits. Follow the door manufacturer’s instructions and shim the door as needed.
Secure the Storm Door – Keep the door closed and secure the hinges tightly with screws. Secure the Z bar, as well, following the provided directions for accommodating any needed gaps and screws. Then locate the expander channels and slide the plastic storm door sweep through them; crimp closed and remove any expander excess, then reattach to the door. Attach securely with screws.
Install the Latch – Follow the manufacturer’s directions to attach hardware, including drilling holes and leveling the hardware. Assemble the latch and dead bolt, if using, as well as the strike plate and shim. Adjust the opening and closing as needed, and follow directions to attach the doorjamb bracket and closer.
