Glass Vs. Screen Doors: What’s The Difference?

Are you interested in adding a screen or glass door to your home? Do you know the difference?

Screen and glass doors have often been used interchangeably, but some features set the two apart.

Stick around to know the difference.

What are glass doors?

Sometimes referred to as storm doors. They are made of a glass panel that allows natural light into your home.

Most glass doors come with a handle that allows them to be locked for extra security.

You can have the glass panes customized according to your preference. Also, some doors come with a single pane, others double panes—the more the barrier panes, the better the insulation.

What are screen doors?

Screen doors follow the same basic structures as glass doors; the only difference is instead of glass panels, they have a screen.

Screen doors allow in a breath of fresh air and sunlight into the home while still offering protection from pests and rodents.

If you love the feel of both screen and glass doors, there’s a way you can custom glass and screens by swapping the glass or screen panel depending on the season.

You can also choose to have a door with a self-storage area behind the panel. This means you can have one door that gives both options.

Adding either a screen or glass door gives you a great view of your front or backyard.

Plus, there are several styles you can incorporate with both types, including:

  • Sliding doors
  • Retractable screens
  • Pivot doors
  • Hinged doors, etc.
