Storm Door Guy

The Installation Expert

Image result for larson savannahThe next storm door on my list of doors to review is the Larson Savannah model. Available in the standard widths of 32″and 36″ by 80-81″ tall, this door is a good middle of the road door.


It has a solid wood core construction, meaning the guts of the door are not hollow aluminum. You can get a handle that is either brushed nickel (silver) or brass (gold). The outside is a vinyl covering, perfect for resisting scuffs and scrapes. It’s easy to clean. Just take a house to the outside, or Windex to wash the windows. It is durable and should last at least 10 years with proper care and maintenance. It has a roll screen, which means you don’t have to take out the glass and store it somewhere when you want some ventilation. Just pull the window down and voila! The screen is attached. And if you have a cold or rainy day, simply raise the window and the screen disappears.


The biggest con to this door is their is no key for it. That wouldn’t be bad on its face, but there’s a bigger problem. There is also no unlock safety. This means you can lock yourself out. Trust me, I’ve done it. And it’s very frustrating. If for some reason the lock is in the upright position when the door is open, and you let it close behind you, it won’t automatically unlock itself. No, it will happily lock you out in the cold.

    From what I read the door is basically full of sawdust (partial wood) and if the door leaks the sawdust gets wet and the door goes to pot. Is there a place to purchase a storm door frame (the three pieces that attach to the house?

    On my door, if you’re on the outside, you can put your hand on the top window and slide it down from the outside exposing just the screen. Take a knife and cut the screen which allows the burglar instant access. Sometimes, just going in and out, the top glass will begin to lower by its self.
