If you're fairly good at DIY, putting in your own cat flap should not be too much of a challenge, if you've got a solid wood door on your Rutherglen home. However, if it has to be fitted into a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you shouldn't even attempt it yourself. These kinds of fittings require a professional installation from a trustworthy cat flap fitter or carpenter with the necessary skills and equipment.


Double Glazing Installation - If your cat flap needs to be installed in a double glazed door or window panel, and your hired "tradesman" attempts to drill a hole in it, stop the job immediately and give them their walking orders. It isn't possible to fit a new cat flap into a double glazing window pane or door panel. Any kind of double glazed unit will be damaged by drilling a hole in it, and will damage its strength, security and thermal insulation properties. In fact, it renders the glazing unsound and it should not ever be done.

A professional cat flap installer will measure up your current double glazing unit and have a local Rutherglen glazing company make a new purpose made one. As an integral part of its structure this new pane will have a hole pre-cut, which your cat flap can be installed nicely into. This is really the only way to fit a cat flap into an existing patio or double glazed door, even though it might take a week or so to produce. When your new panel of glass shows up, the fitter will remove the old unit, and swap it for the brand new "cat flap ready" one. The installing of the cat flap will then be undertaken.

uPVC Door Panels - It's perfectly feasible to install a cat flap into a uPVC door. It pays to know the interior construction, since some uPVC doors are lined with steel for additional security. A one piece door panel allows for easier installation, so if you've got a uPVC door that is slatted, it may be more cost effective to swap the panel for a single panel model.

Wall Installation - It is also feasible to have a cat flap installed in an external wall of your house in Rutherglen, if you do not wish to cut chunks out of your doors, for safety or aesthetic reasons. This form of installment is certainly best left to a professional, as it calls for much more equipment and skill to accomplish.
