Most Commonly Used Pet Doors for Thinner Applications
Installing a pet door in a storm door is just as easy as installing a door mount
model pet door in a regular door. The main consideration is the
thickness of the door. You will want to measure the thickness of your
storm door and choose a pet door with a corresponding adjustment range.
Storm doors basically come in two different types. The very thin metal-bottomed type and the thicker insulated versions. Some storm doors might have a panel
design on the lower portion as well. You can install a pet door in
panel-design doors, but may want to caulk or shim around the frame of
the pet door for weather sealing.
Many customers ask us for
storm doors with the pet door already installed. Moore Pet Supplies does
not carry these doors because what seems like a rather simple solution
is really more involved. Making sure you order a storm door that will
fit well in your opening can be tricky, it is much better for you as
the homeowner to acquire a storm door of your choosing. We can help
you select the appropriate door for your situation. If you do not feel
comfortable installing the pet door yourself, then a handyman can be
very cost effective.
Special Note:Be aware that ordering storm doors with pet doors
already installed from online retailers often are expensive to return if they do not fit and most always have a hefty restocking charge.
