Tips and Tricks for installing Pet Doors

By Pet Access Guy | June 1, 2013

Here are some tips, for when you’re installing your Pet Access door in Walls and Doors:


  • It’s easier to use the flat surface of the door, without the bumps and ridges.
  • Watch for plumbing and electrical!! Check the basement to see if there are any cords running upstairs, and outside for electrical outlets and faucets
  • Stay away 8” from the left and right of windows, doors, corners of the house – these parts are load-bearing areas, filled with metal rebar, concrete & studs.
  • Under a window is okay.
  • Cut from the outside to avoid a mess indoors.
  • If you’re unsure of what you’re doing, please call a Handyman to avoid damage.

    Thanks for the tip on cutting from the outside. I just got a pet door and I’m planning to install it soon. I’d rather not make a huge mess inside the house, if I can help it, so I’ll be sure to cut from the outside!
