Pet Door Installation Service

 

We install Dog doors, Pet Doors or even Cat doors.

As a Pet Door Installer we install pet doors or dog doors in your home, we have the tools to do this fairly quickly and have done enough of them to do it quickly and these are tough enough that it’s definitely one of those projects that by being a handyman I have the tools on hand to get it done correctly the first time with little trouble.

 

Energy efficient Pet door install – Having recently moved to Mineola, Texas ( sorry Utah, the cold dry winter last year was it for me, I needed a warmer climate ) 

Back to the pet Door, this install was the easiest that I have done, basically mark, measure, cut the door open and install it, it has a nice thick pvc frame and it installed from start to finish in just under an hour.

Here are a few photos from the install.

 

 

 

 

 

Pet Door Installation in wall

 

Another pet door install, involved installing the kit in a wall. This is the first in wall install that I had done and it was similar to an in door install, but had a few very different problems, One I had to make sure that there were no power wires in the wall, and one problem that the kit did not account for was that this house had a stucco finish which made the wall thicker by 1″ so I ended up fabricating some longer bolts last minute to attach everything together. This made it a bit of an unusual challenge late on a Friday night, but with help from my wife who ran to the hardware store and found me what I needed, anyway here are some of the photos from that install. These doors are also known as pet doors, or dog doors.

It turned out great even with the extra difficulty, and I did not charge for these issues as it really wasn’t the homeowners fault, it just goes into the list of things to watch out for on the next job.

Where could you use a new pet door installed in your house? I know our three large dogs love being able to just run in and out of the house all day long to go play or potty.

These cute little pups would bring you a ball and toss it to you then sit and shake, yes shake with anticipation for you to throw the ball, then they would retrieve it from where ever you tossed it and rinse, lather, repeat. The homeowner told me that the puppy in the last photo went over an hour and a half up and down the stairs before he quit tossing the ball. Now that is some dedication to getting the job done from a puppy dog.

The best quality pet doors that I have seen and installed are the ones that have an aluminum frame, I have had the best reports back from clients on how well they have lasted and stood up to the test of time. One of the best places that I have seen them sold is at Lowe’s Home Improvement
