We regularly get asked if we can do installations in other areas of Australia, such as Sydney or Melbourne. The answer to this is yes, we will can travel to anywhere that we are needed for an install, however there will be additional travel costs depending on your job requirements and location. As we’re a Brisbane based family run business who fly down for our installations all of our interstate estimates are usually prepared online with an option of a Facetime/Skype consultation call if needed. To prepare an online estimate all we need (besides your contact details) are the measurements of the area you would like to enclose along with a few good photos of the area from different angles.

There will be additional travel expenses in your estimate, however, it’s important to keep in mind that although these travel expenses might make us more expensive than your local installers we include a 6 year (72 months) workmanship guarantee with our enclosures (the longest workmanship guarantee in the market by 5 years) and we also include the longest netting guarantee of 12 years. We also have many 5 star reviews found in Google Reviews and True Local and have won the Australian Achiever Awards for 2014, 2016 & 2017 and have become finalists for the Australian Small Business Championship Awards for the last two years running. We have also repaired countless competitors’ enclosures over the years so although we can be more costly it’s actually an investment that’s worth it and can save you money on repairs in the long run.

Yes they can. We also offer a full removal service which involves dismantling the enclosure and covering any small holes left by the fixings. You can view albums of our pull downs and renews on our Facebook page. This is the before photo album for a side enclosure we built: See here and this is the after photo album for the same home: See here . As you can see from our repair work you can’t actually see that there was ever an enclosure there. This is link to another album of ours where we have removed the enclosure and repaired all holes: See here.

Unfortunately we cannot guarantee our enclosures to be 100% snake or toad proof. However there are ways that we can install an enclosure to have additional snake and toad resistance. Please feel free to request this with your online quote request and we will custom design something for you.

Our cat runs are all enclosed using pre-stretched and UV treated 19mmx19mm black cat netting. Our wall netting has an additional stainless steel filament intertwined into each strand of netting for added strength and rigidity. We choose to install with black netting as we have found that white and cream netting is actually more obvious to the naked eye due to its ability to reflect the sun.

Our netting is attached with marine grade stainless steel fixings and wires so you can rest assured knowing that you’re not getting galvanised fixtures which will rust out in next to no time.

Our custom designed gates are made from welded and powder coated Australian steel so they won’t be flimsy like gates which are made using corner connectors. Plus all of our gates come with D&D Technologies self-closing hinges and key lockable latches so you know you’re getting the best of the best with us.

Unlike other installers our L-shaped zip entrances are attached using special marine grade clips and are not merely zipped tied on. Unfortunately enclosures made with zip ties don’t last as long in the Australian sun so our stainless steel clips will maintain a longer life for your zip.

We make sure to take our time when building our enclosures so that you know your fur babies will be safe. We’re not about doing a “rush job” to cut on costs and prefer to make sure everything is done correctly in the first place. We do things differently than other installers to make sure your enclosure can last for as long as possible.  We choose to wet drill when fixing into tiles to prevent breakage. We refuse to use cheap plastic wall plugs and will instead take our time to chemically anchor our fixings when working with masonry. These differences may increase our installation time but your fur babies’ safety is well worth both the time and the love that we will spend.

We can certainly arrange for an on-site meeting with one of our consultants however we can only provide this service to Brisbane and surrounding areas. There is a small fee dependent on location for all on-site meetings to cover our installer’s time and travel but this fee is 100% returnable if you proceed with our service. Please feel free to call us on 0401 305 004 if you would like to enquire on consultation prices and make an appointment.

All of our custom fixed enclosures are covered by guarantees unbeatable in the enclosure market. We include a 12 year netting guarantee for sag & deterioration as well as a 6 year (72 months) workmanship guarantee, that’s the longest workmanship guarantee on the market by 5 years!!!

Our DIY portable enclosures are covered under the Australian Consumer Guarantee.

We can, and have, installed metal enclosures. Metal enclosures are more costly than netted enclosures due to the price of materials and the labour involved to install them but it is certainly something we can do if your budget allows. All window boxes that we install are metal mesh boxes. If you would like to see the quality of our metal mesh enclosures please feel free to visit The Cat Clinic Mt Gravatt, The Cat Clinic Paddington, The Cat Cuddle Café Red Hill or email us at [email protected] for photos.

Whether or not one of our custom cat runs will be suited with your furry pups really depends on the individual dogs’ ages and personality. Our netting is not designed to be chewed on and can be damaged if your pet is too rough. If you think your pups are going to be tempted to chew through your cats’ enclosure we can always look at adding on a special dog mesh for added resistance. It is very rare for a dog to chew through our additional dog mesh but on the rare occasion it can happen. If this is the case, or you are certain that this will happen we would suggest installing with metal mesh on the bottom half on the enclosure at least.
