Storm doors are used to protect your home from storms or general damage from the elements. They keep your property safe from rain, snow, and more, acting as protective barriers and providing stronger airflow in the home. In the past, when exterior doors and frames were made entirely of wood, storm doors were vital. They are less important now because the materials used to build homes and doors have changed, but they can still be useful and effective additions to any property.

The average cost for installing a storm door ranges from $250 to $800. As an example, a standard mid-view storm door with minor upgrades costs about $350, installed.

Storm Door Prices by Type

Storm doors come in a variety of styles and prices. Some high-end storm doors are made from top-quality, heavy-duty materials with a range of advanced features like keyed entries and beveled glass windows. Other more basic models are designed simply to act as protective barriers, without any additional features or decorative elements. The table below shows some of the most common types of storm doors, complete with average costs.

Door styleAverage price

Mid View Storm Door

A mid-view storm door has a divided glass panel that covers most of the door’s surface area. There is usually a solid section at the base of the door, however, where a cat flap or dog door may be installed. The average cost for a mid-view storm door is between $150 and $250.

High View Storm Door

A high-view storm door is one where you can see through the top section. A glass panel is fitted in the top part of the door, leaving the base solid. A pet flap can later be installed in the bottom section if needed. The average cost for a high-view storm door ranges from $150 to $250.

Full View Storm Door

A full-view storm door is one with an all-glass panel that allows you to see through to the entry door. Often, this glass panel is divided, and the average cost for a full-view door is between $200 and $450.

Ventilating Storm Door

A ventilating storm door has a glass panel that slides to the side or retracts in some way to open up a space for air to pass through. This helps with the airflow in the home. Ventilating storm doors cost between $300 and $500 on average.

Security Storm Doors

A security storm door is designed with safety in mind. Often featuring metal bars in its design, a security door acts as an additional layer of protection for your home against intruders and may be fitted with keyed locks. The cost of this storm door ranges from $350 to $700.

Double Storm Doors

A double storm door is twice as large as a regular storm door, so the price tends to be double. You will pay between $600 and $1,000 on average for a double storm door.

Storm Door with Retractable Screen

Some storm doors come with screens that slide to the side or downward or retract into some kind of housing. One advantage of these doors is that they allow you to enjoy the view, without a screen blocking the way, as well as improving the overall aesthetic of the front of your home. Plus, you can retract the screen and panel to let the breeze in and improve airflow in the house. The average cost for these doors is between $300 and $500.

Storm Door Screens

There are also three main screen types to consider, but they don’t have a major impact on the overall price. Full-view doors have separate glass and screen inserts that can be switched out; retractable screens roll up into the top of the door when not in use, and screen panels are switched with glass panels as needed.

Tempered glass is up to four times stronger than regular glass and can increase the door cost by $50-$80. Decorative beveled glass panels have detailed etching in the glass that is for style and not function and can add an additional $50-$80 to your total cost. Acrylic panels are a better insulator than glass, making them a popular choice in colder climates. They average $30-$50 per panel. Low-e glass panels feature two to three layers of glass with argon gas in between, creating an energy-efficient and secure glass panel. They tend to add $25-$50 per panel.

Labor Costs to Install a Storm Door

The amount of labor required to install a storm door depends greatly on the type of door being installed. For example, a basic full-view or mid-view storm door can be fitted in just a couple of hours, whereas a heavy-duty security storm door or a set of double storm doors might take an entire day to install. The longer and more complex the installation, the more expensive the labor costs. Expect to pay anywhere from $80 - $500 for the installation of a storm door.

Storm Door Costs by Brand

There are many different brands to choose from when shopping for storm doors, and some of the manufacturers are more trusted and popular than others. Names like Provia, Larson, and Menards are some of the top storm door creators. Pella is another popular choice, offering 20-year warranties on its doors, while other brands like Harvey and Trapp also produce top-quality storm doors in a range of styles.

BrandAverage Storm Door Cost
Larson$100 - $500
Menards$150 - $750
Pella$200 - $400
Andersen$300 - $500
Trapp$300 - $700
Provia$600 - $1,000

Self-storing Storm Doors

A self-storing storm door has a screen or glass that slides down into the frame itself, which acts as the housing. This makes the process of changing panels much easier because you do not need to remove the other panels to fit new ones in. A self-storing storm door costs between $250 and $450.
