Screen Door With Pet Door

A screen door to keep the flies and mosquitos out of your house is an excellent thing in summer, but having to open and close the door for your resident fur friend is not quite as enjoyable. A screen door with his or her own pet flap is the perfect solution to letting your darling exit and enter without human intervention. When it opens onto a screened patio or fenced backyard, you can give your fur friend the illusion of a little freedom without risking your baby to the terrors of the wide world.

When your pup or kitten has that extra bit of control over their own destiny they will be happier, and so will you.

What we are looking for:

Materials:

Design expert Billy Cotton suggests finding a screen door with pet door fashioned out of hard-wearing materials, such as like PVC or high-impact plastic, that will withstand time and daily use. Some of these panels may contain a fibreglass mesh screen to fit seamlessly into similar screen doors. Depending on the design, a screen door with pet door may feature a heavy-duty metal or aluminium frame. The lift-style, swing or even saloon-style door that fits inside may be crafted out of tempered glass, metal wire mesh, acrylic, density board or a polycarbonate flap with a magnetic strip. To secure it into place, there may be steel hardware. To keep everything energy-efficient, some may contain weather stripping around the exterior frame.

Construction:

The beauty of a screen door with pet door is that your pet has a convenient way outdoors and most are built to slot easily into most types of doors. Frances Merrill the founder of Reath Design Studio notes that to keep things super seamless, find a screen door with pet door with a square or rectangular flexible acrylic or wire mesh swinging door panel and a magnetic flap that opens to let your pet in and out. The frame that contains the door is often crafted out of aluminium or metal. Most install with no damage or change to your existing screen, sliding, or porch door. The pet doors will fit into place with either screws or even easy adhesive side strips. Some come with a lock for closing and securing the pet door when you're not home for added security.

Size:

Pets come in all different sizes, so it only makes sense to find a screen door with pet door that will adequately accommodate the size of your dog or cat. Due to the adaptable design, these doors usually weigh no more than 10 pounds. In order to fit a pet that weighs up to 100 pounds, Nicole Hollis suggests finding a screen door with pet door that's 10 inches by 17 inches in size. You can also find extra large sizes that are 30 inches by 18 inches that will fit retrievers and german shepherd dogs.

Additional features:

For those worried about other critters or stray pets coming in their screen door with pet door, there are options featuring an automatic or two-way lock. Interior designer Katie Ridder suggests opting for a pet door made out of more sturdy materials with thermal insulation if you live in a wet or cold climate. There are also many screen doors with pet doors that don't require any tools for installation that will work with many styles of doors. There are also weather-resistant materials and weather-stripping choices available as well. For pets who are always digging, you might choose a pet door with a brush strip which helps eliminate outside dirt as well as noise when the door is opening and shutting.
