I am considering putting a storm door that has full length glass or screen on
my house . My problem is my new dog( Lab/ Dane )who is as big as a cow and
almost as smart. I'm sure he'll find the occasion to crash through the screen
at some point.
I've looked at Pella doors at Lowes and Anderson doors at Home Depot but
neither seems to have an available optional grid. Can someone suggest where I
might find such a thing or suggest another method of accomplishing what I need
to do, short of getting rid of my buddy? Tia clint
Any window shop that does custom metal frames can make you up a grille that
could be screwed to the vertical stiles of door with a few self tapping
screws. But at that point you may as well buy an old-style 2-panel screen
door, since the grille would be visible through the screen. Or you could
just replace the regular latch with a panic bar, and attach a nose-height
push plate to it so he can let himself out. :^)
Ditto that suggestion. Our new lab/shepherd pup would have torn his way
into the house long ago. Home Depot sells screw-on door grills that should
do the job, even if they won't get you into House Beautiful. They're just
half-height expanded metal attachments, not full-height decorative pieces.
In my case, it's the back door, so appearance wasn't paramount.
