Annapolis Climate Recommendations
Located along the Eastern Seaboard, Annapolis has a humid subtropical climate and is no stranger to humid summers, cool winters, and steady year-round precipitation. Thanks to its proximity to the Chesapeake Bay, the area experiences more moderate temperatures than areas further inland, but wood front doors are more likely to experience the effects of salty air over time.
For good insulation and protection from drafts and leaks, choose fiberglass entry doors.
Winter cold and snow can impact your front door, depending on its finish, the location, the direction it faces, and whether or not there’s an overhang. Heavy air moisture levels can impact a wood door more than other materials like fiberglass. Protect the look of your front door with a storm door to help keep your main entrance looking great for years.
Keep warm in the winter by helping to reduce the heat loss from your home. Doors with panes of glass with Low-E may help keep your home insulated, blocking out the cold and helping keep the heat in.
