Pet Door Size and Placement Options

Pets come in all shapes and sizes, so pet doors need to as well. Choosing the right size and placement is overwhelming as a Do-It-Yourself project, but the experienced professionals at Mr. Handyman will help you find the perfect fit for your home and pet.

To pick the right one for your pet, we start by taking your pet’s size into consideration. Obviously, a door built for a housecat is going to be much smaller than one built for an Irish Wolfhound.

Next, we take into consideration which type of door you are looking to install. There are a variety of door types, and each comes with their own sets of pros and cons. We’ll work with you to determine which type best suits you and your pet’s needs.

Finally, we’ll help you determine how and where to place your pet door. Installing something as large as a pet door requires a certain level of construction knowledge and expertise. You don’t want to put a hole in your house or door until you’re sure it’s exactly right! Our experts will determine the best place to install your pet door based on the design of your home, the size and style of the door, and where you would like the door to lead.

Types of Pet Doors Available

Pet doors come in a variety of materials, including glass, fiberglass, wood, and metal—we’ll help you determine which material would work best for you and your pet.

The mechanics of your pet door is another factor to consider. Pet doors can either be a traditional flap door, open electronically, or installed as patio sliders or French doors. We’ll help you choose the right type, which will depend on factors like, price, size of the door, and aesthetic requirements.

DIY vs. Professional Installation

Before attempting to DIY your pet door installation, consider whether you have the knowledge, skills, and tools needed to successfully complete the job. The last thing you need is a gaping hole in a door or your home that’s an open invitation for rodents and pests to enter.

Hiring professional pet door installers is cheaper and easier in the long run since they bring with them the tools, knowledge, and experience necessary to complete this complicated project.
