Takes 2 to 4 hours to fit a cat flap in an external wall. Can be fitted the same day as contacted, if the cat flap fitter is in your area and time allows. Using power tools we cut into the brickwork and do the same on both sides of the wall, this prevents excess damage to plaster and brickwork. Cat flap fitter only use UPVC boxing to line the wall, as it’s larger than the tunnel extensions and easier for your cat to use
Cat flap fitted in a Composite Door
Cat flap fitter can cut a hole for a cat flap in a composite door the same day as contacted. Composite doors come either with a plastic or steel skins and filled with high-density foam, for insulation. Unlike UPVC doors they come with a wood grain feel and can be painted any colour you like. When fitting a cat flap in a composite we have to cut the hole from both sides, just above the storm guard. Then we fit the cat flap and it as to be sealed.
Note: We don’t recommend cutting a hole in the composite door, as they are expensive to replace. Only consider this option if you have no other place to fit a cat flap, or ask our advice
