Fitting a cat flap on your own can be pretty straightforward if you have a solid timber door on your Billingham home, and reasonable DIY skills. But, if you are hoping to install it in a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced PVC door, you need to ask for outside assistance. These sorts of fittings call for a professional installation by a trustworthy cat flap fitter or carpenter with the necessary skills and equipment.


Double Glazing Installation - If your new cat flap is going to be mounted on a double glazing door or window panel, and your chosen "tradesman" tries to drill a hole in it, stop the job immediately and give them their walking orders. A new cat flap cannot be fitted into a pre-existing double glazed door panel or window pane. Any type of double glazed unit will be damaged by cutting or drilling into it, and will take away its insulating properties, security and strength. It should under no circumstances be attempted and will render your double glazing unsound.

A dependable Billingham cat flap installer will carefully get the dimensions of your current unit and order a tailor-made one from a local glazing firm. As an integral part of its structure this new glazed panel will have a hole pre-cut, which your cat flap can be installed neatly into. You might have to wait a week or two for this special pane to be produced, but if you need a cat flap installed in an existing double glazed or patio door, this is the only way to accomplish it. Once you've received your new modified pane of glass, the old one can be removed and the new one installed. The installation of your cat flap can then be undertaken.

Wall Installation - It's also feasible to get a cat flap installed in an external wall of your property in Billingham, if you don't want to have a hole cut in one of your doors, whether for aesthetic or safety reasons.

A number of benefits are provided by cat flaps to both owners and their cats:

  1. Enhanced Security: Equipped with locking mechanisms, many cat flaps can be adjusted to permit only particular cats entry, while keeping out undesired visitors. This functionality boosts home security by obstructing the ingress of strays and potential threats.
  2. Convenience for Owners: Owners no longer find it necessary to break their regular daily patterns to let their cats out or in. This ease is especially pertinent for those juggling busy schedules or who have uneven work hours.
  3. Less Litter Box Odours: Outdoor access for your cat could mean less frequent litter box usage, leading to fewer cleanings and potentially reducing unpleasant odours in your home.
  4. Independence for Cats: Cat flaps offer cats, inherently independent, the opportunity to explore, exercise, and satisfy their curiosity as they wish, which can result in increased happiness and health.
  5. A Reduction in Door Scratching: The frustration of waiting to be let out and in can lead to destructive scratching behaviour near doors. Cat flaps provide an alternative exit and entry point, potentially reducing this undesirable behaviour.
  6. Reduced Stress: Cat flaps obviate the need for you to continuously watch over and open the door for your cat, reducing both your and your pet's stress levels, and allowing them independent entry and exit.
  7. Better Control: Some advanced cat flaps are programmable and can be synchronized with your cat's microchip or a special collar tag. This ensures that only your cat can use the cat flap, offering complete control over their comings and goings.

Cat Flap Weatherproofing

Cat flap weatherproofing is crucial for maintaining the comfort and safety of both outdoor and indoor cats. A well-weatherproofed cat flap prevents wind, rain and draughts from seeping into the house, ensuring a dry and warm environment for both the feline and the occupants. Cat flaps with superior quality seals and insulating materials form a tight barrier against the elements. Consider, additionally, the installation of a weatherproof tunnel extension to shield the entryway from harsh weather conditions. The cat flap's effectiveness in providing a cosy and weather-protected space for your cat is preserved through routine maintenance, which involves checking seals for damage and deterioration.
