Can a Cat Flap Be Installed in a Porch With uPVC Doors?

The porch is one of the best places for a cat flap or dog door, especially for pets that like to come and go as they please or explore their neighbourhood and have access to a safe enclosed yard.

A pet flap can easily be installed in a porch with uPVC doors.

Our specialists at Pet Flaps UK are highly trained to install pet flaps into many materials, including uPVC doors. Pet flaps in uPVC doors are a great option, as they are easy to clean and maintain. Because of the extra support from the uPVC panel, we can install these flaps into spaces as narrow as 21.5cm (depending upon the size of pet flap required).

Which Pet Flaps Do You Recommend For A Porch?

The type of pet flap that we recommend for a porch, or any entrance from the inside to the outside, is a microchip cat flap or pet door. This flap selectively lets your pets, and only your pets into your home. The flap reads your pet’s microchip, and unlocks the flap, allowing your pet to come in.

This is a great option, as it doesn’t let strays, wild animals, or burglars have access to your home. If you choose certain makes/models with selective exit functions you can even adjust it so you can let your cats in and out, but make your dogs stay inside. If you have a pet that recently had surgery and can’t go outside, that pet’s microchip information can be temporarily disabled. It is the perfect customisable pet flap!

What are the Benefits of Installing a Cat Flap in a Porch?

More Freedom. Cats often can’t decide if they want to be inside or out. A cat door makes this their problem. They can be wherever they like, without bothering you to open the door.

Your Cat Won’t Wake You Up. Cats often don’t stop meowing or changing their minds at night. This leaves a lot of cat owners helpless and sleepless, and a cat flap solves this problem.

Your Cat Will be Healthier and Happier. Cats with cat flaps often get more exercise. This lessens the chance of them getting diabetes or other weight-related issues. Cats who exercise are also happier and more content with their lives.

Cat flaps allow cats to come inside and hide if there is a predator chasing them, and some of our high-tech cat flaps prevent other animals from using the cat flap.

Many other companies refuse to install these doors because of the difficulty and precision it takes, but our experts are specifically trained to make this process simple and safe.

Get in touch

There’s no need to wait for an in-person consultation. You can get an online recommendation from one of our experts with some simple measurements and photos. From your answers and submissions, we’ll provide a list of our top recommendations for the best cat flap or dog door for your pet.


Installation of Pet Flap

Your chosen pet flap may be sent directly to you (along with any required accessories) in preparation for the installation or the installer may bring it with them (we will advise which is applicable to your installation).

When you have received your pet flap (or the installer receives it) our installer will make an appointment to come to your home to install it.

They will perform a full fitting and assessment to ensure it works correctly and that you and your pet are satisfied with our work (and also tidying up after themselves).
