Free Cowdenbeath Cat Flap Fitting Quotes

Essentially, a cat flap at its most basic is simply that. A hole cut in a door with a bendable piece of material hung over it, to give protection from the elements, but allow the cat pass through. The majority of cat owners in Cowdenbeath would favour something a tad more secure and weatherproof for an external door to their house, although this could be appropriate for a shed or outhouse door.

This standard design is still far from perfect as it allows other animals or cats to enter into your home, but it can be improved on with the addition of a magnetic strip to keep the flap in place.

Magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red models of cat flap, are the next step up from the magnetic strip version. This requires your cat to wear a collar that has either a magnet, RF or IR chip encased in it. No animal will be able to leave or access your property unless it's equipped with this special collar. The drawback here is that any other cat in the neighbourhood who has a similar model of collar could perchance gain access to your property when using this kind of cat flap. An upgrade to this product is a RF cat flap/collar system which has a unique identifier which can be programmed by the cat owner.

The kind of cat flap which is capable of identifying your cat's own micro-chip, is the next stage in feline entry security. The memory of these battery powered cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip details (if you have more than one cat), to provide exclusive access. Whenever your cat comes into close vicinity of the flap, it will unlock and allow solely your microchipped pets to enter/exit.

The ability to lock it in position is vital regardless which cat flap you are purchasing. For added security, nearly all cat flaps have a 4-way locking mechanism these days. Which means that the cat flap can permit access into your property only, enable exit from your house only, be fully locked, or be set for 2-way exit and entry. This will give you a variety of solutions on precisely how your cat flap functions at all times of the day and night time. The ability to carry out different functions according to the time of day, and in line with yours and your pet's needs is also a possibility with some of the more expensive models of cat flap.

Putting in a cat flap yourself can be really easy if you have a solid wood door on your Cowdenbeath property, and reasonable DIY capabilities. Under no circumstances should you try to install a cat flap in a double glazed window or in a reinforced PVC door. These kinds of fittings require a professional installation by a trustworthy cat flap installer or odd job man with the appropriate equipment and skills.


Double Glazing Installation - If you hire someone who endeavours to drill a hole in a double glazed panel to install your cat flap, stop them right away and ask them to leave. New cat flaps can't be fitted into existing double glazed doors or window panels. Making holes in your double glazing destroys not simply the security and strength of the glazing, but it removes the thermal insulation attributes too. In fact, it makes your glazing unsound and it should not ever be done.

A trustworthy Cowdenbeath cat flap fitter will carefully measure up your current panel and order a custom-made one from a local glazing company. As an integral part of its construction this new pane will have a pre-cut hole, which the cat flap can be fitted neatly into. This is really the only way to fit a cat flap in a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, although it can take one or two weeks to manufacture. As soon as your new pane of glass arrives, the installer will take out the old one, and replace it with the new "cat flap ready" panel. It will now be possible to fit your new cat flap.

Exterior Wooden Doors - The most straightforward option for new cat flap installations in Cowdenbeath, as was mentioned previously, are solid timber doors. If you're unsure about creating a hole in your back or front door, it's a good move to contact an expert to do the work for you. This should give you the peace of mind that you will finish up with an expertly installed cat flap, and that the project has been accomplished properly.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be fitted into uPVC doors in many cases. Nonetheless, certain uPVC door panels are lined with steel for further security, which could cause issues. The easiest type of cat flap installation is in doors with one single panel, subsequently if you have a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it might be easier and cheaper overall to replace the slats with a one-piece panel.

Wall Installation - If, for security or aesthetic reasons, you don't wish to have a chunk cut out of your door, you could always decide to install a cat flap on an exterior wall of your property in Cowdenbeath. Needing far more expertise and equipment, a wall cat flap installation is certainly best left to the pros, if it's to be executed correctly. There are a couple of choices for this type of installation, including a straightforward design, or a right angular (through pillar) adaption. With this sort of installation a plastic or metal, open ended square insert is fitted into a square shaped hole made into your specified wall. A cat flap of your choice can then be attached at both ends to enable your furry friend to come and go as it wishes.

Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Cowdenbeath - If you've already got a cat flap installed on your door, wall or window, but it's damaged or not working properly, the current hole can hopefully still be used for the installation of a new one. A reputable cat flap installer in Cowdenbeath will efficiently remove your unwanted cat flap, and mount a brand new one as a replacement without causing damage to the door, wall or window.

When your cat flap installation involves insertion into a pre-cut hole in double glazing, it is important to make certain that this was previously done accurately, before attaching the new cat flap. The glass will have to be taken out and replaced with a new one to avoid any security and safety problems, if you discover that this is not the case and a bodge job was made of the original installation.

There are a number of different specialist cat flap installers, handyman contractors and even double glazing suppliers in the Cowdenbeath area, that provide cat flap installation in whatever door or construction you require. There's no better procedure for locating a reliable cat flap installer than asking neighbours and friends for recommendations. If they have had similar work done by a local Cowdenbeath tradesman themselves, and been very satisfied with the result, you can consider that they will do a good job for you too.

It's generally sensible not to automatically opt for the cheapest estimate. Try to get written warranties for the quality of their workmanship, so that if things do happen to go awry you've got some recourse.
