Panel pet doors take up room in the door way and most don't use the existing lock. They also leave the door partway open which requires the use of weather strips to seal it back up, and many people think they are unsightly. Wall pet doors are hard to install and it is even more difficult to remove and patch the wall. A wall pet door is pretty permanent. Even a wood door installation is going to require the replacement of the door to undo.
The Pet Door Guys have a solution: this product is a pre-manufactured window replacement in its own frame with the excellent Endura pet door already installed. It has one large, tempered, dual pane insulated window on top, with a second smaller one next to an Endura pet door below. This is shipped to you complete, and you or your local glass company just disassembles your door and swaps out the original glass with this unit. The Standard unit has a maximum glass unit size of 34 x 76. If your glass is between 76" and 92" tall, it will be considered Oversize. Max dimensions are 34" wide and 92" tall. If you have a 8 x 8 slider and the door is 48" wide, we can ship the unit without glass as a custom order - call for details in this case. Oversize doors cannot ship to residential addresses, but we can ship them to business addresses.
When ordering we need payment via the website or by phone, and the order form filled out, signed, and emailed to provide the glass specifications. Since these are custom built to fit your window, this item is a final sale and we will not accept returns unless the item is defective or damaged in shipping. Here is a simpler method for figuring the glass thickness suggested by one of our customers.
If you want a pet door without the T frame in the window, have a look at the Hale In Glass pet door. The Hale door is sold as the dog door alone, and you will need to find a local glass shop to make a new piece of glass to install it into. Although the price of the Hale is lower up front it ends up being quite a bit more expensive after the installation costs are figured in.
RISE OPTION - The pet door will start 3.5" above the frame of your door. A typical sliding door frame is 3 or 4 inches tall, so the pet door will be 6.5" or 7.5" off the ground with no rise added. As great as the Pet Door Guys product is, it doesn't work well for really short legged dogs like dachshunds and shih tzus. We almost never sell an increased rise on anything other than the XL size. It's better to just step up a flap size, which gains you 4" in height, but doesn't put the pet door any higher off the floor. If you have a very tall dog it may be necessary to add a rise to the Extra Large size. French door owners - look out for the height of the kick plate at the bottom below the glass. These are typically 8 or 10 inches tall, usually quite a bit taller than sliding doors, and that's before the 3.5" or between the frame and the bottom of the flap. Most French doors are double doors and one side is usually closed. In that case you can use a step or ramp, and install on the stationary side for smaller pets.
If you have a short legged breed make sure that the pet door will be at a usable height. If it is too high off the floor at 3.5" above the frame, take a look at the Autoslide. It is not a pet door at all, it is a sliding door opener and closer. It takes up no space in the doorway, and doesn't add any threshold height.
LOW E OPTION - The 272 coating is green in color, 366 is grey. Both are very light, so if you're in doubt, hold a white piece of paper on the other side of the glass and see if you can tell what you have. If it looks white, even if it says low e on the window, pick clear glass.
SHIPPING - Ships free to the contiguous 48 states. For AK, HI, or international orders, call. Because of the custom glass size for every order, glass is not stocked and the wait time is approximately 3 to 4 weeks, plus shipping time from Washington state.
INSTALLATION - This is much easier to install than you might imagine. The video on this page goes through the whole process of removing the trim, measuring the glass, and completing the installation. Check out the reviews; almost all of them are from first timers and they nearly all say how easy it is. If you can't DIY, the first step in ordering one of these units is to pick up the phone and call a local residential glass shop. They will need to come to your home twice. During the first visit they will partially disassemble the door and provide you with the exact size of the glass unit so that you can complete an order, and a second time to install the completed unit after it arrives. Each visit takes 20 to 30 minutes.
