Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: How much does it cost to install a pet door?

Installation can cost just over a hundred dollars while the pet door itself can go for as low as a couple of hundred dollars, with the costliest one going for just over $900.
Q: Are dog doors hard to install?
A: Installing a permanent doggie door is not a job that anyone can do, especially when dealing with a surface like glass. Protective equipment is needed because of the risks involved and it’s not uncommon to get an injury from working with glass. One must also consider the pet’s age because you don’t want your best friend to outgrow their door.
An electric drill may be used, measurements must be taken and there’ll probably be a sealant involved. So, such projects are best undertaken by professionals that have done them before, otherwise, you may damage your glass door.
Q: How do you install a doggie door in a glass door?
A: To install a pet door in a glass door, you need to start by measuring your pet’s width and height. Then, a panel will be installed into the glass and it’ll have to be dry fitted to avoid any size-related issues. The panel is then fitted in, screwed in, and fixed in nicely to make it secure. You then have the flap fitted in at the end. For a glass sliding door, you want to have your pet door in a place that doesn’t interfere with your movements in and out of the house.
