Storm doors can be a combination of wood and glass or combination of aluminium and glass or combination of pvc and glass. Even without glasses the storm door being installed.At the same time this type of storm door should be protected by using exterior grade paints , storm door recommended hardwares and fittings. Failing to recognise the difference between the ordinary door hardwares and fittings to storm door hardwares and fittings will result in high maintanance costs.

Basically storm doors should be with glass panels inorder to get ventilation and natural lighting. It may be with single glass panel or multiple square type glass panels or of with stained glass for decorative purposes, But choosing the thickness of storm door is highly recommended. It should not be more than the entrance or front door thickness.

If you are using a wood door as a front door , it is good to choose a aluminium storm door .If front door is made out of metal, you may go for pvc storm door. Some prefer wood front door to wood storm door for aesthetic look.

Choosing the type of storm door to solve the purpose of ventilation and natural lighting is important. Bottom portion with grills and top with glass panels will solve both purposes.
