So, you're sold on the idea, but exactly what is perfect style of cat flap for your pet?
Essentially, a cat flap at its most basic is merely that. A hole in a door with a bendable sheet of material hung over it, to keep the elements out, but permit the cat climb through.

INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN CIRENCESTER
Double Glazing Installations - If you happen to employ somebody who tries to drill a hole in a double glazed panel to install your cat flap, stop them without delay and ask them to leave. New cat flaps can not be fitted into pre-existing double glazing window or door panels. Any kind of double glazing will be ruined by drilling a hole in it, and will take away its strength, insulating properties and security. The double glazing will be rendered unsafe, and it should never be attempted under any circumstances whatsoever.
A dependable Cirencester cat flap fitter will meticulously measure up your existing unit and order a ready prepared one from a local glazing company. As part of its construction this new pane will have a pre-cut hole, which your cat flap can be fitted nicely into. This could take a week or so to produce, however it's really the only way to install a cat flap into a pre-existing patio or double glazed door. As soon as your new glass pane arrives, the installer will take out the old unit, and replace it with the brand new "cat flap ready" one. Your cat flap will then be installed.
Exterior Wooden Doors - Wooden door panels are, as we stated previously, the easiest options for cat flap installation in Cirencester. If you're a little unsure about making a sizeable hole in your door, you may be happier hiring an expert cat flap fitter or carpenter instead.

uPVC Door Panels - It is quite possible to fit a cat flap into most uPVC doors. It pays to know the internal construction, as some uPVC doors are lined with steel for extra security. The models of door with a one-piece panel are the best for cat flap installation, so if yours has got a slatted type panel, it might be better to replace this with a single panel.
Wall Installation - If, for aesthetic or security reasons, you do not wish to have a chunk cut out of a door, you could always choose to install a cat flap into an exterior wall of your house in Cirencester. A cat flap entrance in a wall requires a bit more equipment and skill to install, therefore it is definitely best left to the pros. Almost all wall cat flap installations involve a simple straight tunnel style, but right angled access through a pillar can also be achieved. With this sort of installation a metal or plastic, open ended square insert is fitted into a square hole cut out of your specified wall. A cat flap of your choice can then be mounted on either end to allow your furry friend to enter and exit as it pleases.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Cirencester - If your door, window or wall already has a cat flap fitted, but it is not working properly, or is damaged, it is perfectly possible to fit a replacement into the existing hole. Your cat flap installer will be able to take off the unwanted cat flap, without causing damage to the surrounding window, door or wall, and install a new flap in its place for your cat.
If the substitute cat flap is going to be installed into a pre cut hole in a double glazed pane, you must check that the existing glass has been manufactured, cut and installed in the right way. The glass panel must be taken out and substituted to avoid any safety and security issues, if it's found this is not the case and a bodge job was made of the previous installation.
