So glad I found this site. I need to put a doggy door in a screen door. My cat brought a mouse in showing off, & I said thats it. Im renting so figured I would get a send hand screen door to put dog door on & take off scree door.
Question what sort of door is the easiest way to attach dog door? As a.woman I am doing this myself. I googled it, the man make ot look easy.
Most appreciate any feedback.
Yeah, I would probably replace the wooden door and just leave the screen open when you want the dog to be able to come in and out @Vicki65.
Ooow, I am thinking about replacing my hollow core backdoor with a solid core backdoor that I have fitted a dog door into. Then I can have the screen door open while dog door is in use. Solid core is intended to be "kick in" proof. When I looked at all the different solid core doors I don't know which is strong enough. I have seen a hollow core door filled with particle board sheets to strengthen it & convert it to solid. I am wondering if it is cheaper to convert a hollow core door, or just get solid core? If so, which solid core is "kick in" proof?
Thanks for joining in the discussion @DIYTrouble. I trust Workshop members will be able to provide some assistance and inspiration with this project as well as many others to come in future. Please post whenever you need a hand.
In this instance, you might want to start a new discussion about door strength so it is more easily seen by other members and they can provide the advice you need.
Please let me know if you ever need help getting the most out of Workshop, or have any feedback about how we can make the site more useful to you.
