Storm Door Installation

Question: I need to put up a storm door. Can anyone tell me how hard this is to do? It looks pretty easy just looking at it. But I seen a man across the street a while back ago putting one up and he sure had a hard time. It took him 2 or 3 days to get it right. So I am wondering if it is as easy as it looks.

Answer: Size and the square of your doorframe is the key!

If you purchase a storm door that is the right size and your doorframe is square, it shouldn't be more than a couple of hour project.

As a note, most storm doors have the hinge attached to the door in a manner that requires that you screw the hinge into place while balancing the door. It is really a 2 person project, one to hold the door in position while the other screws the hinge to the door frame.
