How We Installed The Steel Entry Door and Security Storm Door Systems

Here is one of our recent security door and steel entry door installations in Chicago. This installation is unique in that it includes both a sidelite next to the door and a transom window above the door and sidelite…

As you can see, the existing doors were in need of replacement and so were the jambs. To complete this Chicago door replacement, we removed the existing doors and jambs all the way down to the rough opening. Once the opening was clean we installed the new jambs. Following the jambs, we started with the steel entry door, the sidelite and interior transom window…

Once the steel entry door and sidelites were installed, we capped with jamb with aluminum coil. In the pictures above you can see the bare jamb which is a light color. The capping we used was brown to match the entry door. Once all of the jambs were covered, the opening looked clean, polished and protected from the elements…

Prior to installing the security storm door system on this Chicago house, we installed a steel outer-frame. The outer-frame was installed on top of the jamb and provides a very secure frame to install the storm door, sidelilte and transom on. Once the outer-frame was installed we proceeded to install the security storm door, storm sidelite and storm transom window.

The end result was a total transformation that added both beauty and security as well as a huge improvement in energy efficiency!
