Cat Flap Fitter Faversham Kent (ME13): The installation of a cat flap to an external wall or door in your house in Faversham, will allow it to live a happy life and enjoy it's own bit of independence and freedom. When constantly kept indoors, cats as with humans, will get irritated and grumpy. Having a cat that is both physically and mentally fit, is just one of the benefits of giving your cat easy access to world outside by way of a cat flap. So, you're sold on the idea, but which is best style of cat flap for your pet?
The most rudimentry style of cat flap is basically that. A piece of flexible material fixed over a hole in a doorway to allow a cat to pass through it, but keep the elements out. Although this may be appropriate for an outhouse door or garden fence panel, most cat owners in Faversham would no doubt prefer something a bit more secure and weatherproof for an exterior door to their house.
This basic design is still a long way off being ideal since it allows other creatures or cats a means by which to enter into your property, but it can be improved on slightly by adding magnetic strips to keep the flap in position.
Stepping up from a magnetic strip are magnetically operated, infra-red or RF chip styles of cat flap. This involves your cat wearing a collar that has either an IR, RF chip or magnet encased inside it. Unless an animal is fitted with one of these special collars, it won't be able to trigger the flap and access or leave your property, therefore avoiding some unwelcome visitors. Again this is a fairly simple form of cat flap, as any other cat in the area that's got a similar style of collar might be able to gain access to your property. Even these cat flaps can be improved to some degree with an RF cat flap/collar system having an owner programmed unique identifier.
A cat flap that's able to identify your pet's micro-chip, is the next stage in Faversham feline entry security. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip numbers (if you've got several cats), to give exclusive access. The flap is unlocked when your cat is in the vicinity, only allowing exit or entry to animals that have a micro-chip.
Being able to lock it in position is essential no matter which cat flap you're buying. Most cat flaps sold today boast a four way locking system. This allows your cat flap to permit only entry into your house, be locked fully, enable exit from your property only, or have two way exit and entry capability. This gives full control over how your cat flap works both throughout the day and during the night. The ability to perform different functions according to the time of day, and in line with your pet's and your needs is also a possibility with some of the top-end brands of cat flap.
If you're fairly decent at DIY, fitting a cat flap should not be too difficult, if you have a wooden door on your Faversham home. But, if you're looking to install it in a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window, you ought to ask for outside assistance. This type of installation will require the attention of a pro, and there are specialist cat flap installers and skilled carpenters who will be ready to undertake such a task.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN FAVERSHAM
Double Glazing Installation - If you call in a so-called "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to fit your cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed window or door panel, immediately send them packing. A new cat flap can't be mounted into a pre-existing double glazing door panel or window pane. Any sort of double glazing will be ruined by drilling a hole in it, and will detract from its security, strength and thermal properties. It should under no circumstances be attempted and will render your double glazing unsound.
It will be necessary to get a new double glazed panel made especially for this purpose by a glazing supplier, and your local Faversham cat flap installer will take the measurements of your current unit and put in an order for the new one. This new pane will be delivered with a pre-cut hole as a part of its structure where your cat flap can be installed. You might have to wait a couple of weeks for this special pane to be made, but if you need a cat flap installed in an existing patio or double glazed door, this is really the only way to accomplish it. After construction, the old glass will be taken out, and the brand new one put in its place. It's now possible to install and set up the new cat flap.
External Wooden Doors - Timber doors are, as I mentioned above, the easiest options for cat flap installation in Faversham. It is usually best to get in touch with a specialist handyman or cat flap fitter, if you are at all dubious about making a big hole in your back or front door. This will give you the peace of mind that you'll end up with a professionally installed cat friendly flap, and that the project has been carried out correctly.
uPVC Door Panels - It's perfectly feasible to fit a cat flap into a uPVC door. You'll have to find out what the interior structure of you door actually is, since for added security some uPVC door panels are made with a steel lining. The designs of door with a one piece panel are the easiest for installing cat flaps, so if yours has got a slatted style door panel, it may be advisable to replace this with a single pane.
Wall Installation - It's also feasible to get a cat flap installed in an external wall of your property in Faversham, if you do not wish to have a hole cut in one of your doors, either for aesthetic or security reasons. Needing much more equipment and skill, a wall cat flap installation is definitely better left to a specialist, if it is to be completed successfully. There are several choices for this type of installation, including a straightforward design, or a right angle (through pillar) model. A neat square shaped hole will have to be cut through your chosen wall, into which is inserted a plastic or metal, square open ended tube. The cat flap you have chosen is then mounted on both ends to enable your furry friend to enter and exit as it wishes.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Faversham - If you've already got a cat flap fitted on your window, door or wall, but it is broken or not functioning properly, the existing hole can hopefully still be used for installing a replacement. A good cat flap fitter in Faversham will be capable of removing your old,unwanted cat flap, and mount a brand new one in its place without causing damage to the wall, window or door.
Before attaching the new cat flap in a double glazed pane that's been previously pre-cut, making sure that the existing glass has been made, cut and installed correctly is essential. The glass panel will need to be taken out and substituted to avoid any security and safety issues, if it is found that this isn't the case and corners were cut in the previous installation.
FINDING A CAT FLAP INSTALLER IN FAVERSHAM
There are plenty of specialist cat flap fitters, handyman contractors and even double glazing companies in the Faversham area, who offer cat flap fitting onto whatever door or construction you need. It might be possible to ask friends and neighbours for recommendations when it comes to tracking down a good cat flap specialist. You can guarantee that if they have been happy to recommend somebody who has carried out work for them, you will probably get a much similar level of service.
If it is not feasible to get personal recommendations from your contacts, you should try to get 2 or 3 different quotes from local tradesmen before choosing. It's generally shrewd not to automatically opt for the cheapest offer. Ask about any guarantees or warranties they may offer for their workmanship and ensure that it's backed up in writing, just in case something should go awry.
