Cat Flap Fitter Neston Cheshire (CH64): Installing a cat flap to an outside door or wall in your Neston property helps to give your cat the independence it needs to live a happy life. Cats kept indoors, as with humans, will often show signs of irritation. Having access to the outside world by means of a cat flap will help your cat to stay fit, both mentally and physically. However, what type of cat flap is best in your case?
The simplest sort of cat flap is essentially that. A hole is cut in a door and a bendable material is hung over the gap to give a bit of protection from the elements. Even though this might be suitable for a garden fence panel or shed door, the vast majority of Neston cat owners would doubtless prefer something a little more secure and weatherproof for a main door to their home.
This basic model is still far from perfect as it allows other cats or animals a means by which to enter into your home, nonetheless it can be improved on to some degree by adding magnetic strips to hold the flap in position.
The next step up from the magnetic strip version are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically controlled cat flaps. With this kind of cat flap, your cat will need to wear a collar featuring a magnet, IR or RF chip. No animal is going to be able to leave or get into your home unless it's fitted with one of these special collars. The reality that any other moggy in the neighbourhood who's got a similar collar might be able to gain access to your property, is the downside with this kind of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be improved to some degree with an RF cat flap and collar system containing an owner programmed unique identifier.
A model of cat flap that is capable of identifying your cat's micro-chip, is the next level in Neston feline access security. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip numbers (if you have more than one cat), to provide exclusive access. Entry and exit can only be accomplished by micro-chipped pets, and the flap will be unfastened when you cat is in the vicinity.
Whatever cat flap you purchase, it must be capable of being locked in position. For added flexibility, nearly all cat flaps boast a 4-way locking mechanism these days. This means that the cat flap can allow exit from your house only, permit only entrance into your house, be locked fully, or be set for two way exit and entry. This gives you options for all times of night and day, to control how your cat flap operates. The wherewithal to perform specific functions according to the time of day, and in keeping with your cat's and your requirements is also an option with some of the high end brands of cat flap.
If you are fairly decent at do-it-yourself, fitting a cat flap should not be too much of a challenge, if you've got a solid timber door on your Neston home. On no account should you try to fit a cat flap in a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window. These situations call for the expertise and skills of a competent cat flap fitter or carpenter, who is sure to have have the equipment and knowledge for this type of installation project.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN NESTON
Double Glazing Installation - If you call in a "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to fit your new cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazing window or door panel, send them packing immediately. New cat flaps cannot be installed into pre-existing double glazed doors or window panels. Any type of double glazing will be ruined by cutting or drilling into it, and will take away its strength, security and thermal insulation attributes. It should under no circumstances be attempted and renders your double glazing unsound.
A reputable Neston cat flap installer will carefully measure up your current panel and order a tailor-made one from a local glazing company. This new glazed panel will have a pre-cut hole as part of its construction where your cat flap can be fitted. This is the only way to install a cat flap in an existing double glazed or patio door, although it may 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. It will now be possible to fit your cat flap.

A project of this type will not be expensive and will provide you with the satisfaction of knowing that your cat has an expertly fitted flap.
uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be sometimes be suitable for a cat flap. It is necessary to know the interior construction, because some door panels are steel lined for extra security. A one piece door panel allows for easier installation, so if you have a slatted type uPVC door panel, it might be more cost effective to exchange this panel for a single pane model.
Wall Installation - If, for safety or aesthetic reasons, you don't want to have a chunk cut out of one of your doors, you could always decide to install the cat flap on an external wall of your house in Neston. A cat flap entrance in a wall calls for a little more equipment and skill to install, therefore it's definitely best left to a professional. The majority of cat flap installations in walls are a basic straight tunnel style, however right angular access via a pillar is also possible.

Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Neston - If you've already got a cat flap fitted on a window, door or wall, but it's broken or not working correctly, the current hole can, with a little luck, still be used for installing a replacement. A good cat flap fitter in Neston will efficiently remove the old,unwanted cat flap, and fix a brand new one as a replacement without damaging the surrounding window, wall or door.
Before attaching a new flap in a double glazing panel which has been previously pre-cut, confirming that the current glass has been cut and installed correctly is vital. If the previous installation was a bodge job, the pane must be removed and replaced with a new one to avoid any security and safety issues with the new flap.
