Competition / Market:

It is true that any glazer can fit a cat flap into the glass, however, none truly specialise in it. Given the margins in the glazing industry, they would much rather put all their energy on selling new windows, doors and conservatories. Glazing companies are renowned for slow replies and poor customer service and from our research, they seldom reply to many customers about cat flap installation and when they do, the price they charge is high as they probably don’t really want the job.
