Mid-view

Mid-view storm doors cost $150 to $250. They have divided glass panels and usually come with a solid section at their base for pet door installation. Mid-view storm doors provide simple protection from the elements and fit homes in not-so-extreme environments.


High-view

High-view storm doors also cost $150 to $250. They have see-through top sections with a solid base for pet doors. High-view storm doors provide visibility and better protection from the elements.


Full-view

Full-view storm doors will cost more: anywhere from $200 to $450. Full-view doors provide visibility with an all-glass panel that can be divided or come as an entire pane. Full-view storm doors are good in places where you want to block natural light but still provide ample protection from the elements.


Self-storing

Self-storing storm doors come with retractable screens and cost $250 to $450. Most homes already have them. Self-storing storm doors have a glass screen that slides down into the housing/frame, making panel changes easier. You don't need to remove old panels to fit new ones.


Ventilating

Ventilating storm doors cost $300 to $500. They have a glass panel that slides to the side or retracts to open, providing better air circulation and cooling.


Security

Security storm doors cost $350 to $700 and often have metal bars and locks to protect your home from intruders. Security storm doors are more expensive than most types because of their premium materials, like tempered glass.


Double

Double storm doors cost $600 to $1,000. Having double storm doors installed will likely cost more than having a single unit installed. Opting for more intricate designs will also up the price.

How much is the labor cost of storm door installation?

You’ll pay $80 to $500 for labor when looking for a handyman to install a storm door. The most significant factor in labor cost is the type of door installed in your home. For example, a basic full-view or mid-view storm door can be installed in a few hours, while heavy-duty security or double storm doors might take a whole day to finish.

How much do storm door enhancements cost?

If you think storm doors are plenty functional, you can up the ante by opting for some enhancements. Weatherstripping is a must if you truly want something that protects you from the elements and protects the storm door itself from exposure. This addition costs around $35 to $40.

Moreover, having a pet door installed in your storm door is a must for your lovely pets. Storm doors with pet entrances cost $300 to $1,000, depending on the type of door, glass, and other features you require for the installation.
