There's no denying it, we all love our pets. Most of us probably even love walking them sometimes, but not ALL the time - like when a favorite show is on, or an important phone call just came in. That's why for those with a fenced in yard, a secure pet door is so appealing.
There’s no denying it, we all love our pets. Most of us probably even love walking them sometimes, but not ALL the time – like when a favorite show is on, or an important phone call just came in. That’s why for those with a fenced in yard, a secure pet door is so appealing. If you’ve got one of those dogs that wants to be let out hourly, a pet door (often called a doggie door) can save you all those trips up and down to open and close, open and close. Lather, rinse, repeat.
Often, the best route to the back yard is through a sliding glass door, or French door. An In Glass Pet Door is an ideal solution to giving your pets the freedom to come and go as they please. It eliminates a complex construction project, and you don’t need to compromise the integrity of your house by creating a new opening. A glazier can come to your house to measure the door or window you’d like to install the door through, (and measure your pet too ;)
In many cases, the existing panel of glass from your door or window can be retained, and replaced with a new one to accommodate the pet door. That way, if you are planning move and the next owner doesn’t have a pet, the old glass panel can be reinstalled. Plus, you can add an in-screen pet door for access in any kind of weather.
Through the glass pet doors now have improved technology that keep the seal tight, so you are not wasting energy. And some models even have what amounts to a lock. You pet wears a device on the collar that unlocks the door. That way, you don’t get surprise visitors coming in through your glass pet door.
For best results, you’ll want a professional glazier with experience installing in-glass pet doors.
