Sliding Screen Door with Dog Door

Are you looking for a new sliding screen door for your home? Is your old one worn or all scratched up? Have you been reluctant to purchase one for fear that your animal will not be able to get in and out? The good news is that you can now find sliding screen doors with dog door.

This means that your pet will be able to gain access to the outside and you can finally have that nice screen door that you have been thinking about. When you have a fenced in yard, the freedom to run around back there is great for the kids and your pets need easy access to the outdoors, just like we do.

When your pet is able independently transition from outdoors to indoors your life suddenly becomes much easier. You don’t have to jump up from the sofa where you’re relaxing with a good book to let the dog out, only to find that before you get back to your seat he’s ready to come back in. No more waking up in the middle of night to take Fido out for his late-night bathroom break, instead you can stay in bed and your pet can handle his own business. But, what do you need to consider before buying?

Animal Size

You want to ensure that the opening for the pet door is large enough to accommodate your pet. Different pets will need different sized doors. The door might also specify if it is for small, medium, or large animals. It is still always in your best interest to measure before you buy so that the door will be the right fit for your pet as well as the rest of the family.

The dog door opening should allow at least an inch in between the top of the dogs back and the top of the opening for your pet to move through comfortably. The second measurement you will need is the width of your pet. For an accurate measurement have your dog walk through the door and measure the width this way as opposed to measuring your pet. Finally, you need to ensure that the dog door is close enough to the ground that your dog can easily step through it. Remember that because Fido is such a great companion that he’ll be around for a long time and grow older with you. Pets will age and can develop arthritis just like humans so a little planning now will save pain later.

Door Size

Now that you know the size that you need for the dog door portion of your screen door, you need to also know the size you need for the main door. Sliding screen doors do come in a few standard sizes that fit in the track using a standard metal frame. You will need a height and width measurement of your opening, in order to find the correct standard size for you. You’ll also want to look closely at the locking mechanism because, since you’ll want to have the door open all the time, you still want it to be securely closed.

If you take your measurements and you don’t see a standard size that will fit your opening don’t panic. The same way that you can get customized entry doors or interior doors, you can also get customized sliding screen doors. And just because you saw customized does not mean it’s going to be expensive, so you can work with the manufacturer to get yours without spending an outrageous amount of money. The measuring process is quick and easy, much like the process of measuring for your dog door was. Keep in mind that you don’t want to accidently wind up with an incorrect measurement, measuring twice will help prevent this.

Comparison

Now that you have all the measurements for your purchase you can begin the shopping process. You should compare things such as the warranty that is available for the doors that you are considering. Does the warranty cover just frame of your door or will it cover the screen too? What about the lock or roller pieces? You will always want to compare the quality and durability of the materials that the screen door is made from. This is an investment that you can use for some time to come and you want it to last.

Finally, you can compare the price. Check out the many websites of local and national companies to get a real idea of pricing. Are there reputable dealers in your area that can service it, should you need to use the warranty? Do they run special sales? You will want to ensure that you are getting a fair price. Nothing is worse than making a purchase and right after you make it you realize you could have saved a great deal of money had you just taken a few extra minutes to compare prices. If you will be ordering online, you should compare shipping prices as well.

Best Dog Door

A home isn’t complete without a pet and in some cases a pet is all that a person may live with. A large percentage of the households in the U.S. own a pet; 68% to be exact. At more than 2/3 of the population, that figure speaks for itself: pets are an important part of the American way of life. As a pet owner, you are responsible for taking care of your furry friend’s needs. Along with food and water, making sure your pet has the freedom to move in and out of the home should be considered. Whether it makes it easier for you or the pet, the convenience of having a dog door may lower the pet’s anxiety of rushing outside when it is time to “go”. Additionally, during the long, cold winter, there can be no more opening the house door wide and letting in the icy cold air, because your pet can use its own smaller, quicker closing, dog door. This is just one example of why dog doors are a must for every home shared with a canine companion. The invention is a blessing for dog owners everywhere because it allows their pets to go outside and come back in as they please especially when no one is at home. read more
