Some pet doors are designed to clamp onto the screen itself. These are very simple to install requiring only a sharp knife, a flat surface (like the kitchen floor) and a hammer. Also they are quite inexpensive.
Cost. Particularly the clamp-on styles are very inexpensive and easily installed or removed. All you would have to replace is the screen if you decide not to have the pet door anymore.

A pet door in a screen is the perfect way to enjoy the fresh air and let your pet enjoy its freedom. They can be installed in sliding screens, screen doors, window screens and screened porches. There are many installation options, but keep in mind that many of the less expensive choices may not be such a bargain.Many pets love lounging on a screened porch which makes them a natural choice for installing a dog door. Since most screened porches are accessed through an exterior door, securing your home is as easy as shutting the door leading to the screen porch. Dog doors should be attached to the support columns already in use by your porch to prevent screen damage.The most common and least expensive models snap directly onto the screen which can cause the screen to stretch or even rip from the weight of the dog door. Screen door frames should be used to help support the weight of the dog door and a stabilizer bar should be installed at the top with dog doors designed for use by large pets.I do not recommend installing a security cover with dog doors for screen doors, window screens or screen porches. Dogs and cats will naturally scratch near a door to be let out. Depending upon their level of desperation they could potentially destroy the entire screen. A safer solution for your screen and your pet is to simply shut the interior door or window when you don't want your pet to use the pet screen door.Installed in a window, screen door cat doors make a great choice for cats. A cat door installed in a window screen also makes the cat door harder to access by less-athletic pets that you might wish to keep indoors.Unlike screen pet doors that attach only to the screen fabric, the Hale Pet Door screen dog door fastens to the screen door frame on two sides, so it’s much sturdier than other brands. The single flap screen pet door has strong magnets and stainless steel strikes with high pile weather stripping to keep the bugs out.
