Storm Window Basics
Storm windows are a less costly option than a full replacement window, while still providing important benefits, including protection from storms and better sound proofing qualities. Storm windows that are being inserted specifically to protect existing windows from storms and severe weather would be placed on the outside.
These exterior storm windows can have single track, double track or even triple track construction. The double track and triple track options provides a way to open and close the window, if the need arises.
