Cat Flap Fitter Redcar North Yorkshire (TS10): Fitting a cat flap to an external door or wall in your Redcar home gives your cat the independence and freedom it needs to live a happy life. Cats are similar to humans in many ways, and will likely start to show signs of anxiety and frustration if kept inside for significant periods of time without a break. Having access to the world outside via a cat flap will help your cat to remain fit, both mentally and physically. If you opt to go down the cat flap route, you'll then have to determine what is the best type of cat flap.
A cat flap at its most basic is merely that. A hole cut in a door with a flexible bit of material placed over it, to provide protection from the elements, but permit the cat move through. The majority of cat owners in Redcar would doubtless prefer something a tad more weatherproof and secure for a main door to their home, although this could be okay for an outhouse door or fence panel.
Because this solution can allow other creatures or cats to enter your property, it's not at all ideal, though it can be enhanced a little by holding the flap in position by adding a magnetic strip.
Magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip models of cat flap, are a step up from the basic magnetic strip version. This requires your cat to wear a collar which has either a magnet, IR or RF chip encased in it. Unless an animal is equipped with this special collar, it will be unable to open the flap and access or leave your home, therefore keeping out some undesirable visitors. Again this is a pretty simple kind of cat flap, because any other moggy in the Redcar area who's got a similar style of collar may be able to gain access to your property. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the upgraded version of this equipment because they can be programmed by the home owner to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your pet.
A cat flap which is capable of identifying your pet's microchip, is the next level in Redcar feline entrance security. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip numbers (if you've got more than one cat), to provide exclusive access. The flap is unfastened anytime your cat is in the vicinity, only allowing access to animals that are microchipped.
Being able to lock it in position is vital no matter what cat flap you're buying. Currently, most cat flaps available on the market feature a four way locking system for extra flexibility. Which means it's got the capability to allow only exit from your home, be locked fully, enable only entry into your premises, or be put in 2-way exit and entry mode. This will provide you with choices for all times of night and day, to have control over precisely how your cat flap operates. A few of the more expensive models can be set to carry out different functions according to the time of day, in keeping with yours and your cat's requirements.
If you're fairly decent at do-it-yourself, installing your own cat flap shouldn't be too difficult, if you have a wooden door on your house in Redcar. Not in any circumstances should you attempt to install a cat flap in a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window panel. These sorts of fixtures require a professional installation from a dependable cat flap fitter or handyman with the necessary equipment and skills.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN REDCAR
Double Glazing Installation - If you happen to hire someone who endeavours to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel to install your new cat flap, stop them immediately and request that they leave. It isn't possible to fit a new cat flap into a double glazing door panel or window pane. Making a hole in the double glazing damages not only the strength and security of the panel, but it removes the insulating properties too. Actually, it makes your glazing unsound and it shouldn't ever be done.
It will be necessary to get a new double glazing pane made especially for this purpose by a glazing supplier, and your local Redcar cat flap installer will measure your current pane and order a brand new one. This new glazed pane will have a hole pre-cut as part of its construction where the cat flap can be fitted. You might have a 1 or 2 week waiting period for this pane to be produced, but if it's necessary to have a cat flap fitted into a pre-existing patio or double glazed door, this is the only way to do it. Once you have received your new panel of glass, the old one can be removed and the new one fitted. It's now possible to fit the cat flap.
External Wooden Doors - The simplest alternative for new cat flap installations in Redcar, as was stated earlier, are wooden door panels. It is generally wise to contact a competent cat flap fitter or handyman, if you are unsure of making a big hole in your door. This will provide you with the satisfaction of knowing that you will end up with an expertly installed cat flap, and that the job has been done in the right and proper way.
uPVC Door Panels - It's perfectly possible to install a cat flap into most uPVC doors. It pays to know the internal construction, as some door panels have a steel lining for extra security. The designs of door with a one-piece panel are the simplest for installing cat flaps, so if yours has a slatted type door panel, it may be advisable to swap this for a single pane.
Wall Installation - If, for either aesthetic or safety reasons, you do not wish to have a chunk cut out of a door, you could always decide to install the cat flap in an exterior wall of your property in Redcar. This type of installment is certainly better left to an expert, as it calls for a lot more equipment and skill to accomplish. Almost all wall cat flap installations are a simple straight tunnel style, but right angle access through a pillar can also be achieved. With this sort of installation a plastic or metal, open ended square insert is fitted into a square shaped hole neatly cut into your wall. A cat flap of your choice is then mounted on both ends to enable your furry friend to exit and enter as it wishes.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Redcar - If you already have a cat flap fitted on a door, wall or window, but it is damaged or not operating properly, the existing hole can, with luck, still be used for the installation of a replacement. A professional Redcar cat flap installer will be happy to remove your old entry unit and replace it with a new cat flap without inflicting any damage on the wall, window or door on which it's secured.
If the replacement cat flap is being mounted into a pre cut hole in a double glazing pane, you must ensure that the existing glass has been cut and installed accurately. If it's found that corners were cut with the previous installation, the pane will need to be taken out and exchanged to avoid any security and safety issues with the new flap.
FINDING A CAT FLAP INSTALLER IN REDCAR
There are plenty of handyman contractors, professional cat flap fitters and even glazing companies in the Redcar area, that provide cat flap fitting through whatever door or structure you require. It might be possible to ask friends and neighbours for recommendations with regards to tracking down an excellent cat flap installer. If they've had comparable work completed by a local Redcar tradesman, and been very satisfied with the end result, you can consider that they will likewise do a quality job for you.
If you can't find an installation specialist through recommendations, always try to get at least 3 different estimates before making a final decision, and keep in mind that the cheapest is often not the best. Check whether they offer any guarantees or warranties for their standard of workmanship, so that you've got some recourse for compensation if something unfortunately goes wrong when the work is carried out.
