Our 12 year old builders grade storm door didn't get latched by one of our kids and we've had wind gusts of 40-50mph plus so the door hinges are basically completely sprung. We do have a small portico so I was wondering if I could get away without having a storm door at all. Our door to our back deck has no protection and it doesn't have a storm door. I'd say in our development there are more houses with a storm door than without, but there is a not-insignificant number of homes with no storm door. What say you?
