How much does it cost to install a storm door?

Storm doors 1 act as a barrier between the exterior door and the inside of your home, protecting your home from the elements, insects, and pests, and allowing for better airflow. For this example, we’ll look at the cost of installing a standard 36-inch storm door 1, which averages $250-$400.

Styles

Storm doors 1 come in a variety of styles and prices.

Door StyleAverage Price
Full-view glass$275-$325
Paned grid$250-$300
Twin panel$175-$200
Tri-panel$175-$225
Multi-vent panels$160-$180
Self-storing$125-$150


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

Most doors can be installed in 1-2 hours for a total cost of $75-$125. Although there are different sizes of storm doors 1 available, most of them are installed for the same general price.

Enhancement and improvement costs

  • Adding a kick plate 2 to the door will cost an additional $20-$50.
  • Replacing standard hardware with brass hardware can increase your cost by $20-$50, depending on the intricacy of the hardware.
  • A security grill is an added layer with bars for extra protection. On average, they cost $150.
  • Adding heavy-duty weather stripping costs around $20-$35, but it can easily be added as a DIY project after the door is installed for around $10.
  • A keyed locked set can add $20-$80 to your total cost, depending on the size and style. A keyed deadbolt adds around $20-$30, depending on the style and finish.

Additional considerations and costs
