Door damaged by cat flap installation
This SureFlap was installed by builders who were refurbishing the house, but the homeowner said they didn't do it very well:

Appalling wall installation!
Attached are the pictures as requested, as you can see it needs completely replacing including the tunnel as it's very messy, especially from inside & possibly not entirely waterproof! It is currently a Catmate in/out standard flap.

Dangerous SureFlap wall installation refurbished
There isn't a flap at the outer wall, only the frame, which has slipped out of place, the screws aren't attaching to anything. As you can see, the inner flap fitting has fallen out completely. The tunnel looks very ragged as it's not lined. I have two cats, both micro-chipped. ...it's rather chilly with a big hole in the wall.

DIY attempt to remove double glazing
Careless removal of the plastic glazing beads resulted in damage to the beads.
Silicone applied willy-nilly making it very difficult to remove the beads.

SureFlap wall lining failure
We have a cat flap already but it has broken and are looking to have a more stable tunnel put through the wall with a new microchip cat flap. ... the tunnel dips in the wall and we want to try and make the tunnel more solid this time.
