Locks and handles (repair)

Moving in to a new apartment or villa? Its always much safer to replace all door locks than provide entry to your property. Our Handymen/Carpenters will either replace the lock cylinder for a new set of keys or the entire lock unit if needed. Over an extended period of time there is also normal wear and tear of the lock handles & the lock units which requires basic repair in order to ensure safe usage. A professional locksmith booking includes basic repair of the lock unit and we also offer new lock installations.

Do we get any signs before the lock system stops functioning or gets jammed?

Yes, there are times you find the door knobs to be hard while handling or rotating them. Sometimes the key gets stuck or is hard when opening the lock. Do not apply oil or any lubricant to the equipment as the problem could get worse. You may need to call a professional for help for any kind of stuck or freezing of the locks as there might be door fitting issue or the lock might be misaligned which needs a repair. Just focus on the signs given by the knobs, handles or the key.

My windows handles are worn out and old. A few of them have loosened. Can I have an option of handles to be replaced without the frames of windows?

Yes, the handles can be replaced for all the windows without doing altering the hinges and the frames. Handle or knob changing depends completely on your design choice. The size, the type of handle and the color you choose for the windows can be put up and replaced in the existing frames.
