Cat Flap Fitter Clydebank Scotland (G81): Fitting a cat flap to an outside door or wall in your house in Clydebank, will enable it to live a life of contentment and enjoy it's own bit of independence and freedom. Cats tend to get crabby and irritated when kept indoors, and not able to roam. Having a cat that is both mentally and physically fit, is one of the main positive aspects of allowing your cat easy access to outside world by means of a cat flap. So, you think it's a great idea, but what is perfect style of cat flap for your precious pet?
A cat flap at its most fundamental is just that. A hole in a door with a flexible piece of material placed over it, to keep the elements out, but permit the cat move through. Obviously, this is really basic, and won't be good enough for most cat owners in Clydebank, who would no doubt prefer something a tad more weatherproof and secure for an external door to their property, although it could be okay for a shed door or fence panel.
As this option permits other cats or creatures to enter your house, it's not at all recommended, though it can be enhanced to some extent by keeping the flap in place by adding magnetic strips.
Magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red designs of cat flap, are the next step up from the magnetic strip variation. In this case, either an IR, RF chip or magnet will be fitted into your cat's collar. No animal will be able to leave or get into your home unless it's equipped with this special collar. The fact that any other cat in the Clydebank area that has a similar style of collar could possible access your property, is the downside with this sort of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be enhanced to some extent with an RF cat flap and collar system offering a user programmed unique identifier.
Having a cat flap that can be triggered by your cat's own microchip, is the next step-up in entrance gadgets for felines in Clydebank. The microchip number is entered into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries can be made if you have more than one pet). Entry and exit can only be achieved by microchipped animals, and the flap will be unfastened when you cat is in the vicinity.
When you are purchasing a cat flap, you should make certain it's of a type that can be locked into position. Most cat flaps sold nowadays feature a four way locking mechanism. Which means that it has the capability to enable exit only, enable access into your property only, be locked fully, or be put in two-way entry and exit mode. This will give you a range of options on how your cat flap functions at all times of the day and night time. A few of the top-end devices can be programmed to carry out different functions in accordance with the time of day, in line with your cat's and your needs.
If you have a wooden door on your property in Clydebank, installing a cat flap yourself should not be all that complicated. However, if it has to be installed into a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window, you shouldn't under any circumstances even attempt it yourself. These situations call for the skills and expertise of an experienced cat flap fitter or odd job man, who will have the equipment and knowledge for this sort of installation project.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN CLYDEBANK
Double Glazing Installation - If you bring in a "tradesman" who, while trying to install your cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazing window or door panel, immediately send them packing. A new cat flap cannot be installed into an existing double glazed door panel or window pane. Any type of double glazing will be ruined by cutting or drilling into it, and will diminish its thermal properties, security and strength. In reality, it renders your glazing unsafe and it should not ever be done.
An experienced cat flap installer will measure the existing double glazed pane and have a local Clydebank glazing firm make a new one. So that the cat flap can be nicely fitted into it, this new glazed unit will be provided with a hole pre-cut as an integral part of its construction. This is basically the only way to install a cat flap in an existing patio or double glazed door, although it can take a couple of weeks to produce. As soon as your new pane of glass arrives, the fitter will take out the old unit, and swap it for the brand new "cat flap ready" one. The cat flap will then be put in.
External Wooden Doors - Solid timber doors are, as I mentioned above, the simplest alternatives for new cat flap installation in Clydebank. It's often wise to contact a competent handyman or cat flap fitter, if you're dubious about cutting a hole in your front or back door. This type of project will not be expensive and will provide you with peace of mind that your pet will have the use of a professionally installed flap.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be mounted into uPVC doors in most cases. You or your installer will have to establish what the interior structure of you door is, since for additional security some uPVC doors are made with a steel lining. A one piece door panel allows for easier installation, so if you've got a slatted type uPVC door panel, it may be less expensive to swap the panel for a single panel model.
Wall Installation - If, for either safety or aesthetic reasons, you do not want to have a hole cut into your door, you could always elect to install the cat flap in an outside wall of your home in Clydebank. Requiring a lot more expertise and equipment, a wall cat flap installation is definitely better left to a professional, if it is to be executed correctly. You can go for a straight-through tunnel design, or maybe a right angle version which permits entry via a pillar. This installation involves a square hole being made through your wall, into which a metal or plastic, square open ended insert is fitted. An appropriate cat flap is then attached to both sides of the hole.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Clydebank - If your window, door or wall already has a cat flap installed, but it's not working, or is damaged, it's entirely possible to mount a replacement over the current cavity. A trusted cat flap installer in Clydebank will efficiently remove your unwanted cat flap, and fix a new one as a replacement without harming the surrounding door, window or wall.
When the installation involves a pre-cut hole in a double glazing panel, it is essential to confirm that this was previously done in the right way, before attaching the new flap. If it's discovered that corners were cut with the previous installation, the glass will need to be taken out and substituted to avoid any safety and security issues with the new cat flap.
FINDING A CAT FLAP INSTALLER IN CLYDEBANK
In the Clydebank area there are several professional cat flap fitters, handyman contractors and even local glazing firms who provide cat flap fitting services for windows, doors or walls. There is no better procedure for tracking down a reliable cat flap installer than by asking friends and relations for recommendations. You can be sure that if they've been prepared to recommend someone who has carried out work for them, then you'll get a very similar level of service.
If you cannot find an installer through personal recommendation, always try to get at least three different price quotes before making your choice, and keep in mind that the cheapest is often not the best. Check if they supply any warranties or guarantees for their standard of workmanship, so you have some recourse for compensation if something goes awry as the work is carried out.
