How are pocket doors installed?

For a pocket door to be installed, you need to plan ahead and build a wide encasing wall. As for the measurements, you’ll need at least 66 inches of the linear wall and make sure that the existing wall is thicker than 4 inches since the standard pocket door is 2 inches thick. Another thing you have to do is assess what else shares the wall space where the pocket door cage will go. This may sometimes complicate things especially if you should reroute pipes and wires.
