Front Door Lock Repair

Is your front door lock stuck? Do you have a front door lock broken or hard to use? When we repair front door locks there are a variety of options to consider. Rest assured, we replace front door locks on a daily basis.

Deadbolt Repair

We are also called upon to replace deadlocks that are broken. When performing lock repairs, we see a variety of reasons for the breakages. Some of these breakages occur due to incorrect initial installation methods, often performed years earlier. Some simply fail due to age and use. We replace all types of deadlocks and mortice locks. We also perform lock repairs after break-ins. Unfortunately, too many people wait until after they have been burgled to upgrade their security.

Lock Keying After a Lock Repair

When you engage our service to repair locks for you we will consult you to ascertain your expectations regarding your keying. Your new lock is normally supplied with two keys from the manufacturer, but we can alter the new lock to suit an existing key that you may have. Thereby reducing the number of keys you have to carry. If you are interested in investigating this option we will need to gain an overview of the rest of your keying arrangements. In some instances it may be better to rekey and key alike several of your door locks to cut down the number of keys you have to carry around.

Common Lock Problems

Another common problem we see is grease in locks that are 15 or 20 years old that has become hard. It goes hard like glue rather than lubricating like grease is supposed to do. This problem manifests itself in a lock that has seized up. It is usually a good quality lock that has stood the test of time, but been let down by the grease hardening. This can be time-consuming to fix as it often requires all minor components to be individually cleaned.
