Continue reading for advice regarding screen door buying and installation and set yourself up for comfort and relaxation this fall! Screen Door or Storm Door? Although the terms "screen" and "storm" are used interchangeably to describe the traditional screen door there is a subtle difference you should be aware of in order to make a better decision. Storm doors are built to be more sturdy and rugged in order to shield your front door from inclement weather such as strong winds rain hail and snow.
There are 2 types unsupported screen doors which are supported by nothing more than the screen itself and supported screen storm doors which are usually partially supported by the frame of the screen or storm door itself. Unsupported screen doors are recommended for smaller and less aggressive pets only. A pet that is too large or is aggressive is more likely to damage the sensitive screen when trying to enter or leave the house. Partially supported storm doors such as those made by Hale are fastened to the bottom and side of the frame. Of course this means that the unit can only be installed on the bottom left or right hand side of the door. Pet patio doors are also not likely to have locks the logic being that locked doors will encourage your pet to paw or scratch your screen instead.
Screen-doors are that extra door that is installed either in front of or behind the wooden or metal main doors to prevent unwanted elements. These days most homes in the US use screens for their patios where they can conveniently entertain guests without any worry of unwanted insects and creepy crawlies entering in. Installing screen doors have many benefits. The first point is that they are cheap in the long run and most of those who have installed them in their homes are happy and have no cause for complaints. There are many kinds of screens and they come in various materials like aluminum steel fiberglass wood etc.
Use a polyurethane glue and a brush to attach the wood support pieces together and then clamp and allow to dry completely. Once the glue joints are completely dry you can sand the door and apply a stain and clear finish or paint the door if desired. Adding the Screen to the Door Laying the door flat on the work table measure the overall opening and cut a piece of screen material to the proper size leaving several inches around the edges to make installation easier which will be trimmed later. Lay the screen over the top of the door frame and staple it to the top of the frame pulling it tightly towards the bottom of the door.
