Comments about Emco Storm Door:
I had been wanting a new storm door for my side entrance because my house had the original one from when the house was built in 1955. Not only was it outdated, but it had totally lost its usefulness. Plus, this is a good time to get new doors and windows because of the energy-efficient home improvement tax credits.
I made a visit to Home Depot. I feel as if that place is my second home since I am there so often. They didn't have any readymade storm doors that appealed to me, so I had to get a custom-made one, which, of course, always costs more. I settled on the Emco 400 series, self-storing door, in a colonial style, with nickel hardware. I ordered it, along with the installation. They said I would have to wait two weeks to get it.
Home Depot's contractors came to install the door. They could tell right away that it wasn't going to open all the way because of the awning, so they had to reschedule the installation after getting a piece of lumber to fix things. They came back the following week and managed to put the door in.
It is a very attractive door. One thing I wasn't aware of is that it gives the appearance of having twelve separate window panes, but it is really just one large pane of glass with a cut-out metal grid. It looks a bit cheap up close, but I will just have to accept that. The nickel hardware is nice, and I can already tell that it is a snug, tight-fitting door that will keep out drafts in the winter. It also has a built-in screen that is accessed by pressing two metal tabs on either side and pushing the glass down. In additon, it has a deadbolt lock, and it came with two door keys.
Overall, I am satisfied with the new storm door. It's a big improvement from what I had.
