Best Aluminum Screen Door

March 7, 2022
When is the best time to buy? When you have time to determine your needs.

Before we get to the best time to buy an aluminum storm door, the worst time to buy a storm door is right after a big rain or snow.

Why? The emotional desire to be rid of an old aluminum storm door that no longer looks attractive or functions well could drive a homeowner to a hasty, ill-advised purchase.

Before you rush out to the nearest big box store, you’ll want to consider the differences between a custom and standard aluminum storm door. Factors such as door strength and quality, glass or screen options, and aesthetic preferences should be taken into account. Taking the time to evaluate options will help you find the best storm door for your home and family.

Three primary factors help a homeowner determine the best storm door for their home: aluminum thickness, storm door construction and paint finish. Other factors that impact a storm door’s functionality and suitability include style, glass and hardware options and door options like retractable screens, pet doors and mail slots.

ProVia is pleased to offer screen and storm doors that check off every one of those boxes.

Wide Selection of Aluminum Storm Doors

ProVia offers a wide selection of custom size aluminum storm doors (1/8″ increments), with numerous glass and screen options. Our five storm door series provide a comprehensive selection to satisfy the requirements of any homeowner.

Our Spectrum™, Decorator™, Deluxe™DuraGuard™  and Superview™ custom storm door collections offer the most durable aluminum storm door construction in the industry, with an aluminum wall thickness up to 20% greater than industry standard and a multi-hollow construction that provides greater strength and less risk of denting than standard storm doors.  For increased structural integrity and durability, the outside corners are secured to corrosion-proof composite gussets. Corner keys provide added support to the inside of the door frame. And, special bottom sweeps prevent drafts.

ProVia storm doors are shipped pre-hung, which ensures a more professional installation and reduces instances of doors not being plumb and square.

In addition to the increased aluminum thickness and superior storm door construction, ProVia’s custom screen doors are among the most attractive in the industry.  A proprietary paint process ensures long-term scratch- and fade-resistance, enabling the company to provide a Lifetime Limited Warranty for all its storm doors that is transferable to one subsequent homeowner.  As with its other exterior home building products, ProVia’s storm doors exemplify its mission “to serve, by caring for details in ways others won’t.”

ProVia conducts rigorous hardness and scuff testing on the paint finish for each batch of aluminum screen doors to ensure consistent quality.  Additional details, like color-matched screw covers, door glass clips and closers, set ProVia’s storm doors apart in overall aesthetic quality.

Many Storm Door Customization Options

A wide array of door styles, glass and screen options as well as accessories enables homeowners to customize their storm doors for maximum impact.  ProVia offers many choices for decorative beveled glass or hand-stained Art Glass that turn a simple storm door into a piece of art. Decorator™ style doors offer full-view glass and options for beveled, inlays and art glass, while Superview™ provides standard, simplified and functional storm protection.

Screen features include the InVent™ retractable screen system with ProVia’s Spectrum™ storm doors, BetterVue™ fiberglass screens with the Deluxe™ or Superview™ series, or a super-sturdy, non-removable .023 stainless steel screen for the DuraGuard™ series, ideal for protecting small children and pets.

ProVia offers a variety of hardware styles, including Mortise solid brass handle sets.  Mortise hardware enables homeowners to use the same key for both their storm door and ProVia entry door.

An aluminum storm door is a purchase that homeowners won’t make often, so the best time to buy is when one has time to consider and choose the custom storm door that provides the most functionality and aesthetic appeal for their home.
