A storm door, which opens INSIDE

Looking for a storm door, which MUST open inside. This is a door, which leads into an enclosed unheated front porch. Doors, opening outside will not work, because there is no landing in front, just steps. The door needs to be paintable and be about 1.5" thick to match the existing design.

You would ask, why don't I simply replace the current door with the same one. And the answer is: because a wise builder put the cheapest possible (plywood ?) door, which has cracks all over the place after just three years.

Anderson doesn't seem to make them. Who does ???

Thanks a lot.

You can do that but you must reverse the door so that the front of the door faces outside and you'll have to get inswing hardware for the door closer & locking handle.

hi, I think a possible solution would be to purchase a steel insulated exterior door at your local homecenter. This would help eliminate the need for the storm door. You can also bring your new door to a glass repair shop and ask them to assemble a track that will hold in a pane of safety glass onto the exterior of the new door for appearance. The track should obviously be mounted inside of the passage set. From the street it will appear as a storm door and even add some curb appeal.
