Thinking about a new storm door? Consider this: The right storm door adds a layer of attractiveness and welcoming appeal to your home. But it should also offer security, comfort, and protection against weather — combined with easy care and use.
Older style storm doors often lack protective glass panes or ventilating screens. Or, they have both, but you have to keep pulling out one to install the other when the seasons change, which is an annoying hassle.
Enter the convenient, eye-catching designs offered by the ProVia® Spectrum storm door installed by Kelly Window & Door — which comes with retractable screens that combine all these needs in one simple-to-use door. Here’s why homeowners love having retractable screens in their storm doors.
First of All — What Are Retractable Screens?
A retractable screen is a mechanism that allows your storm door to contain built-in glass and screens at the same time. The retractable screens can be pushed up into a small casing when you want the full protection of solid glass window panes. Then, when you want fresh air, the screens can be pulled into place.
This handy design feature enables homeowners to enjoy a variety of uses from their storm door anytime they wish. There’s no need to replace door parts seasonally, as you do with older style doors. And there’s no need to pull pieces out and wash them on the lawn.
ProVia Spectrum storm doors with retractable screens make your home lifestyle comfortable and low maintenance.
Why Choose a ProVia Door with Retractable Screens?
Compared to a traditional storm door, the ProVia Spectrum storm door offers unmistakable benefits that homeowners enjoy. These advantages make the Spectrum door a highly popular choice for those who are upgrading their doors and entryways.
Old-fashioned storm doors tend to be limited in their options. Either you get a door with built-in screens, which doesn’t offer much in the way of protection, or you choose a door with glass panes, which doesn’t allow for ventilation.
ProVia Spectrum storm doors give you the best of both worlds. They come with one or two InVent™ screens to create a number of venting options. You can easily and conveniently enjoy protection against bad weather, and then switch to screens that bring in fresh air whenever you wish.
There’s no need to remove the door’s screens in winter or store its storm windows in your garage or shed during the summer. The screens easily pull out of their housing whenever you want to use them.
Simple to Clean
Old-fashioned door screens are not easy to keep clean. Rinsing them while installed in the door isn’t exactly an option; you have to remove the screen and rinse it on the lawn. And that’s assuming the screen can be removed in the first place.
A storm door with a retractable screen eliminates this annoying hassle. Just roll up the screen to keep it safe from dirt and debris. ProVia’s retraction cylinder includes a microfiber cleaning mechanism that brushes away dust and pollen. And if you do need to make the door spiffy, simply use a regular household cleaner to wipe dirt away.
Want a storm door that is eco-friendly? ProVia Spectrum storm doors make it easy to eliminate drafts and chills in winter — simply retract the screens. In spring and fall, when you want fresh air, expose the screens in the door and enjoy cooling breezes without turning on the air-conditioning.
Because the door’s screens can easily and quickly be retracted anytime the weather changes, it’s simple to keep them safe from wind, storms and hail. Retracting the screens also limits their exposure to UV light and other harmful elements. As a result, the doors perform better for longer without losing their attractiveness.
