Here are some examples of my work, showing a maximum of 24 random images at a time, which should change every week. These photographs were taken immediately after the installation was completed and show a level of finish and cleanliness that I aim to achieve in all of my work. By default the examples show cat flaps through walls. This is not by reason of work preference, but only because they are the most visually appealing.

Walls

I now only fit the Sureflap microchip cat flap sized range (cat flap, cat flap connect and Dual Scan) through masonry walls using my cored technique. I have moved examples of larger pet flaps through walls to the 'Other' section below. I no longer fit these larger flaps in brickwork for health reasons, although I will consider other wall types as the 'Walls Other' section below

Walls Other

 This section shows the Sureflap cat flap and larger Sureflap pet door fitted through timber framed and boarded walls, using tunnel liners. I will consider fitting these types in non-masonry walls

Doors

Glass panels in doors are included in the section for glass. The examples here are of composite, metal skinned, wooden and uPVC doors, either plain, profiled or panelled. Profiled doors have mouldings which sit proud of the main panel, whereas panelled doors are recessed within the panel. Each provides different issues in fitting

Glass

These are examples of cat flaps and dog doors which are fitted in a double glazed unit, where the glass panel is replaced with similar. Single glazed panes, or where the glass is too narrow to accept a pet flap directly are shown in the 'Glass With Other' section

Glass With Other

Where a double glazed unit is too narrow to accept a cat flap / dog door fitted into it directly, I can use a part uPVC panel at the bottom with a shorter double glazed unit above to get around this issue. It is a method I use as a last resort as it is more time consuming, and so more expensive to fit that other methods. Examples of this are customer choice to use a side panel, or where a wider glass panel is not available. Typically, the additional labour cost is greater than the more expensive larger glass panel (if one is available). If the glass area is smaller than a standard plain, white uPVC panel (around 70 cm square, allowing for edge fixing) as in a traditional kitchen door, then the glass can be replaced with uPVC. Finally, in the case of single glazing in small panels such as a wooden Georgian type door, the glass can be replaced with a glass like polycarbonate sheet (not perspex) to replace the glass and then fitting the pet flap in that

Other

The images below are example of the types of work I no longer fit for health reasons. The main restriction is that I will no longer use angle grinders to fit large cat flaps or dog doors in masonry walls as the work is extremely dusty. I still fit standard sized Sureflap microchip cat flaps through walls using my cored technique as seen in the section above, or in timber framed type construction
