Doggy Door– Do or Don’t

Our canine companions are members of our family, so it is no wonder that families make home improvements with the safety and comfort of their pets in mind. A popular and simple project to make our four legged friends tails wag is to install a doggy door, but should you?

Doggy doors are convenient. Whether your dog needs to go to the bathroom, get some exercise, or just layout in the sun - a doggy door lets them come in or go out as they choose. There are a lot positives to a doggy door and a lot of factors that your family will need to consider before deciding if a doggy door is right for your household.

You may find that your household would benefit from a doggy door, but will your house? If you install an aftermarket doggy door on your door you are voiding your doors warranty. This warranty could cover manufacturer defects and even installation. Every warranty is different, so make sure to readthrough yours before making any decisions. If your exterior door’s warranty is still remaining you may want to rethink adding a doggy door.
