Default Cat flap.

We've just been quoted "around" 200 to have a cat flap fitted into the bottom panel of the van door.
The whole panel will have to be replaced due to the moulding on it, even so, we think it's a bit excessive, any thoughts?

Door panels cost around 120 and a cat flap is 20-40 so that's not bad

A joiner in our village, who also specialises in UPVC has offered to fit a new panel with a cat flap for 80. that includes an 65 miles round trip. This I think is more like it.

Yep that's more like it. I went to my local UPVC factory with the measurements of the fitted panel. They cut me a piece of plane panelling for 15 and the dog flap cost me 20 so in all 35 and fitted it myself.

Ps forgot to say my son works as a UPVC fitter and I got the panel from his works.
