“If you want the best, you have to be the best.”
In the world of storm doors, the Larson Tradewinds storm door is the top of line. While it is not the most expensive, it is the most durable, easy to maintain, is the easiest to use, and looks the best all at the best price.
These full view doors are about 1 1/2″ thick, extruded (another word for ‘hollow’) aluminum, and are built to last. Since it has aluminum construction, it won’t fade, rust, or degrade over the years like traditional plastic or vinyl storm doors. Since it is so thick, it also provides a better seal helping to keep hot air in the house during the winter, and the hot air of the summer time outside.
Another great feature is the brilliant way Larson has designed the glass and retractable screen. With the hideaway screen there is no more of this changing the glass and the screen out as the seasons change. This is great, especially if you live in places like Colorado, when you can have multiple seasons all in the same day. You simply pull on the lever in the middle of the door to disengage the top window, then grab the large handle on the top window to pull it down, thus revealing the screen. And the screen will stay exactly where you put it. So feel free to leave the window all the way down if you are trying to get a lot of ventilation, or just crack it a little bit.
