Storm Door Replacement: An Easy Guide By S&S

If you’re looking for a quick and easy upgrade to your home’s entryway, replacing your storm door can make a big difference. Not only can it improve the look of your home, but it can also add an extra layer of protection against the elements. In this guide, we’ll take you through the steps of replacing your storm door.

Step 1: Measuring and Ordering the Door

Before you begin, you’ll need to measure your door opening to ensure that you order the right size door. Most storm doors come in standard sizes, but sometimes custom sizes are required. At S&S Remodeling, we order all of our storm doors from ProVia, a company that offers a wide variety of options to fit any style or need.

Step 2: Prep Opening for New Storm Door

Once you have your new storm door, you’ll need to prepare the opening for installation. This includes removing the old door and checking the frame for any rot or damage. If any damage is found, it’s important to make repairs before installing the new door.

Step 3: Install the Door

After the opening is prepared, it’s time to install the door. If you’re using a pre-hung standard z bar door, installation is fairly straightforward. Simply align the door in the opening and attach it with screws. If you’re installing a custom door, follow the manufacturer’s instructions for installation.

Step 4: Cap the Exterior Using Custom Bent On-Site Aluminum

To ensure a proper seal and prevent any water infiltration, it’s important to cap the exterior of the door frame. This involves custom bending aluminum on-site to fit the contours of the frame. At S&S Remodeling, we use high-quality aluminum to ensure that the cap will last for years to come.

Step 5: Seal All into Place

After the cap is installed, it’s important to seal all edges and gaps with silicone sealant. This will prevent any drafts or water from getting in around the edges of the door.

Step 6: Inspect and Detail Job

Once the storm door is installed, it’s important to inspect the job and make any necessary adjustments. At S&S Remodeling, we take pride in our attention to detail and ensure that every job is done right the first time.

Replacing your storm door is an easy and affordable way to improve the look and function of your home’s entryway. If you’re in need of storm door replacement or any other exterior remodeling services, contact S&S Remodeling today.
