The following step-by-step directions will walk you through some tricks and techniques of how to install a screen door or storm door. Most front entry doors are 36 in. wide and require a 36-in. storm door.
There are few types of screen doors available on today’s market.
- A “full-view” storm door has removable screen and glass panels that you change each season.
- A “ventilating” storm door has glass panels that slide open or closed over the screen, much like a double-hung window.
Nearly every storm door sold is reversible. That is, you can install it with the hinge on either side. The manufacturer’s directions tell you how to do it. When you buy it, you do not have to specify which way the door must swing.
Just in case you wonder how to determine the direction the door swings, here are some tips. For a left-hand door swing, open the door and stand with your back to the hinges. If the door swing is on your left, it is a left-hand door.
It is frustrating to order a door and find that the hinges are on the wrong side when it arrives. Ordering the wrong door is an expensive mistake. The terms that describe the hinge position on a door are confusing: left-handed and right-handed. Stand with your back to the jamb that has the hinges. If the door is on your right, it’s right-handed. If the door is on your left, it’s left-handed.
However, the clerk taking the order may still get confused, especially if you are ordering over the phone. It is best to order your doors in person. Then you can draw a picture, as if looking from above, and sketch in the door hinge and swing direction. This avoids the terminology confusion and unpleasant confrontations if the order goes in wrong.
You typically mount storm doors to the exterior door trim using “Z-bars.” The hinge-side Z-bar may already be screwed to the door (ours was), or you may have to mount it once you determine the door swing direction. On some doors, you’ll also have to drill holes for the latch. At any moment you can call for our team to help you installing, repairing or replacing your doors.
