Re: Patio Slider with Pet Door Pre-installed?

I contacted both Sunrise and Polaris, neither company is able to customize a pet door install. One of our local full-serve lumber yards did check with Marvin and it looks like they can add the pet door for us. From what I see online, it looks like Marvin only has clad doors, any thoughts about vinyl...

Re: Patio Slider with Pet Door Pre-installed?

In 2010, we were going to replace all of our windows and Sunrise Restorations were on my short list. Long story cut short, our furnace went out and we had to spend the money on that instead. I have only checked their website, along with that of many others, and don't see a pet door option. Should I ...

Re: Patio Slider with Pet Door Pre-installed?

We are in Ann Arbor, about forty miles west of Detroit, and forty miles north of Toledo. I certainly appreciate your offer of help, having one or two additional options would be wonderful.

Re: Patio Slider with Pet Door Pre-installed?

Cutting brick is not that big a deal and especially on that small an opening. I would probably be pretty cute looking too if trimmed out nicely with brick molding and finish work. I am never a big fan of a company that will drop their price from $4,800, to $3,300, to $2,800/$2,500. Seems disingenuo...

Re: Patio Slider with Pet Door Pre-installed?

Is there wall area next to the door? You may be better suited to get the better door at the end of the day and put the pet door in the wall. We did think about this, though we have a brick house and my understanding is that it would be very expensive to cut an opening for a door. Comparing the Jeld...

Re: Patio Slider with Pet Door Pre-installed?

I am a real novice at this, but this forum, and your responses, have been very helpful. Today we put the computer down and went to one of our local full-service lumber yards. They confirmed that we can get the Jeld-Wen 72 inch door and add a deadlite pane to come up with a 108 door. Thank you for su...

Re: Patio Slider with Pet Door Pre-installed?

Several manufacturers offer pre installed pet doors. I haven't used one but I can't imagine they are very complex or problematic. As it turns out, the Jeld-Wen Patio Slider, with the built in dog door, is only available on their 72 inch unit, we have a 108 inch opening. We are now looking at Champi...

Patio Slider with Pet Door Pre-installed?

I see that Jeld-Wen has pet doors pre-installed, are there others that do the same? Are there any known issues with this type of door?

Thanks for any assistance!!!
