When working with a load-bearing wall, it is important not to compromise the structural integrity of the wall. You can still install a PlexiDor through a loading bearing wall, but the way to do it will differ with the pet door size.
If you’re installing an Extra Large PlexiDor, it’s wider than the space between studs and you you will need to cut one. Add a cross member support to the framing to even the load – this will ensure the weight is still distributed evenly.
