Have you recently acquired a new cat or dog? Perhaps you already have a pet but you’ve just moved house and your new home isn’t as pet-friendly as you’d like? Maybe you’d just like to make your home more accessible for your pet? For an animal lover, providing access to and from your home for your cat or dog is essential. If you’re considering installing a cat flap into one of your home’s entrance doors, read on for all the information you’re likely to need.

DIY cat flap installations

If you’re thinking about cutting a hole in your existing door, it’s important to consider the implications for your home in the long run. It is possible to install a cat flap into a uPVC, aluminium, timber or composite door. If you’re a competent DIYer, it should be a reasonably simple job. No matter how well you complete the installation, however, the door will never provide the same levels of thermal efficiency and security as it did before.


Entrance doors are designed to protect and insulate your home. They are manufactured using specialist machinery to ensure that they meet all the necessary standards required by industry guidelines. Any alterations post-manufacture will therefore have negative implications on the door’s overall performance.
