Larson Secure Elegance storm door review and field test

I’m the Storm Door Guy and for the last 16 years I have been installing storm, security, and screen doors day in and day out for Lowe’s. It’s what I do, what I know, and what I love. Some people think it’s weird, but thousands of customers have told me I am really good at it! With over 14,000 installations under my belt, I have either seen, caused, or fixed almost everything that can go wrong with them.

I have put this website together to give you all of the real-world information you need about storm doors. From choosing the right one for your particular application, to properly measuring, installing, and sometimes fixing them. I’ve got owners manuals, installation instructions, how-to videos, and more. Unlike the owner’s manuals that tell you how things should work in a perfect world, I show you how things REALLY work in the real world!

Now, where do you begin when looking for a storm door?


First, ask yourself, “What's my goal?”


Do you want a storm door for security? Energy efficiency? A cheap price? A certain look? Once you answer that question, then consider the cost, materials, size, hinging, and style.


Storm door prices range between $100 - $300 for standard sizes, and $300-$500 for custom door sizes. Door installation costs range anywhere from $98 for a basic, single door install to over $300 for a french door install.


Storm doors are made from metal, wood, vinyl, or a combination thereof. The cheaper doors use vinyl and have a wood core for added rigidity and insulation. The more expensive doors are made from extruded aluminum.


Standard storm door sizes are 30", 32", and 36" wide by 81" or 96" high.  When measuring, be sure to look for obstructions that prevent the door from opening properly. Check to see if porch lights, soffits, or doorbells are in the way.


One important question to consider is, “which way will my storm door open?”  If you are ordering from a retailer make sure the salesperson is crystal clear on this. With storm doors, proper handing is the most important issue.

Dan is great! We bought through Lowe's and I got a call about 30 minutes later to schedule. Had to special order but when it arrived Dan got it installed the next day. Great workmanship and he explained everything every step of the way. Would highly recommend The Storm Door Guy!
