July 2, 2010MCM Home Improvement: Storm Doors
By Sablemable aka Jan
Too bad it’s not 1964 where we could call Montgomery Ward and order the storm doors that we need and at these prices!
Alas! We’ll have to settle for what I’ve found online.
At Columbia Windows, their Royal Storm Door of mill finished aluminum run about $136.00 each. They have standard sizes available and will also customize a door for you. Visit their website at www.columbiawindows.com
Next up- a grille. This was a tough find! I’m sorry for the small size of the picture, but I couldn’t get one any larger. Screen Tech USA have these for about $15.00 each, but they only fit a 36″ door. I’m tempted to buy one to check the quality and fit.
However, if you are a welder, you could make your own grille. Decorative cast aluminum and other metals are available at King Architectural Metals (www.kingmetals.com) or at www.sssonlinestore.com both whom have all of the scrolls, bars, letters, clips and other supplies a welder would need to make a MCM storm door grille.
Have you had any luck finding these storm doors and grilles, either new or used?
And, if you know of other businesses that carry the storm doors and grilles, please let us know and I will do an update.
