Cat Flap Fitter Alsager Cheshire (ST7): The installation of a cat flap to an outside wall or door in your home in Alsager, will allow it to live a happy life and enjoy it's own little bit of independence. Cats tend to get irritated and grumpy when constantly kept inside, and not allowed to roam free. Allowing your cat easy access to outside world via a cat flap can help to keep them physically and mentally fit. If this seems like a good option for you, precisely what style of cat flap should you put in?
The most fundamental form of cat flap, is simply that. A hole is cut into an exterior door and a bendable material is fixed over it to offer protection from the elements. Most cat owners in Alsager would favour something a little more weatherproof and secure for an external door to their house, although this may be appropriate for a fence panel or shed door.
As this solution can allow other creatures or cats to enter your house, it is not at all recommended, though it can be enhanced a bit by holding the flap in place with the addition of magnetic strips.
The next step up from the magnetic strip design are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically operated cat flaps. With this kind of cat flap, your cat must wear a collar boasting a magnet, IR or RF chip. No animal will be able to access or leave your property unless it is equipped with one of these special collars. The downside here is that any other moggy in the Alsager area who has a similar collar can still gain access to your home when using this type of cat flap. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the preferred version of this equipment and can be programmed by the user to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your cat.
Choosing a cat flap which can be operated by your cat's own micro-chip, is the next step-up in entrance security for felines in Alsager. You need to enter the unique number of your cat's microchip into the memory the cat flap (which is battery powered), and if you've got more than one cat it will accept multiple entries. Entry and exit can only be accomplished by micro-chipped animals, and the flap will be unfastened whenever you cat is close by.
Regardless of what cat flap you purchase, it should be capable of being locked in place. Most cat flaps sold currently feature a four way locking mechanism. This means that it has the capability to enable only exit from your home, be fully locked, enable only access into your house, or be put in two-way entry and exit mode. This offers you a variety of alternatives on precisely how your cat flap operates at all times of the day and night time. Based on your pet's and your requirements, there's even the possibility to carry out particular functions according to the time of day, with some of the top-end models.
If you have a timber door on your house in Alsager, fitting you own cat flap shouldn't be all that complicated. But, if you're intending to install it in a double glazed window or in a reinforced PVC door, you need to ask for outside assistance. These sorts of fittings call for a professional installation by a reputable cat flap installer or handyman with the necessary equipment and skills.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN ALSAGER
Double Glazing Installation - If you bring in a so-called "tradesman" who, while trying to install your cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazing panel, send them packing immediately. It's just not possible to fit a new cat flap into a double glazing window pane or door panel. Any type of double glazed unit will be ruined by cutting or drilling into it, and will diminish its strength, insulating attributes and security. It should in no circumstances be attempted and will render your double glazing unsound.
A trustworthy Alsager cat flap fitter will diligently measure up your existing pane and order a custom-made one from a local glazing supplier. This new glazed pane will arrive with a pre-cut hole as an integral part of its construction where your cat flap will be installed. You may have a 1 or 2 week wait for this special pane to be produced, but if it's necessary to have a cat flap installed into an existing patio or double glazed door, this is basically the only way to accomplish it. After fabrication, your old glass unit will be removed, and the brand new one put in. Your cat flap will then be fitted.
Exterior Wooden Doors - Solid wooden doors are, as we stated previously, the easiest alternatives for new cat flap installation in Alsager. If you are uncertain about cutting a hole in your front door, it's advisable to call on an expert to do the job for you. This will provide you with the satisfaction of knowing that you'll wind up with a professionally fitted cat friendly flap, and that the project has been carried out properly and without causing damage to your door.
uPVC Door Panels - It's quite possible to fit a cat flap into a uPVC door. It is necessary to know the internal construction, as some uPVC door panels incorporate a steel lining for extra security. The simplest type of cat flap installation is in doors having one single panel, consequently if you've got a uPVC door with vertical slatted panels, it might be cheaper and easier in the long run to replace the slats with a one piece panel.
Wall Installation - It's also possible to have a cat flap mounted in an exterior wall of your property in Alsager, if you do not want to cut chunks out of your doors, whether for safety or aesthetic reasons. Calling for much more expertise and equipment, a wall cat flap installment is definitely better left to a specialist, if it's to be executed successfully. Most cat flap installations in walls are a simple straight tunnel style, but right angular access via a pillar is also an option. With this type of installation a metal or plastic, open ended square insert is fitted into a square hole neatly cut into your selected wall. The cat flap you have chosen is then attached at either end to allow your cat to exit and enter as it pleases.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Alsager - If your door, window or wall is already fitted with a cat flap, but it's not working properly, or is damaged, it's entirely possible to mount a replacement over the existing hole. Your cat flap installer will remove the unwanted cat flap, without harming the surrounding wall, door or window, and install a brand new flap in its place for your cat.
When your cat flap installation involves a pre-cut hole in a double glazed pane, it will be essential to check that this was previously done correctly, before fixing the new flap. The glass pane must be removed and substituted to avoid any safety and security problems, if it is found this isn't the case and a bodge job was made of the earlier installation.
FINDING A CAT FLAP INSTALLER IN ALSAGER
There are a number of handymen, specialist cat flap installers and even double glazing suppliers in the Alsager area, who offer cat flap fitting thru whatever door or fabrication you require. There is no better approach to locating a first-rate cat flap installer than asking neighbours and friends for referrals. You can be certain that if they have been willing to recommend someone who has completed work for them, you will have a much similar experience.
If it isn't feasible to get recommendations from acquaintances, you should attempt to get three or four different estimates from local handymen before coming to a decision. It's generally smart not to automatically go for the cheapest quote. Ask if they supply any warranties for their standard of workmanship, so that you've got some recourse for compensation if something unfortunately goes awry as the work is undertaken.
