Some general questions:
Which lock to choose?
The lock should be chosen with the type of your door in mind. You can buy everything yourself, however you should know all details and better consult before the purchase not with the sellers, but with the experienced locksmith. Remember: the seller and installer have completely different tasks.
What should be the doorway's width?
Metric standard door sizes for internal door usually are 2040 x 526/626/726/826/926 x 40mm
There are different requirements for external doors, for example, the required opening width for wheelchair access.
However as for the front doors to your apartment or house, the popular external door panel widths are 686-915 mm or 27"-36" accordingly, depending on the door type. If your doorway is narrower, it is better to extend it, at least you would be able to carry in the furniture or other big stuff and appliances.
Is it possible to know exactly how much it will cost to replace a lock in the metal door?
If you know the brand of the lock, the manufacturer, the model of your door (if it is a door of a domestic manufacturer), and are absolutely sure, you don't need other supplements, then it will be quite possible. The only thing you need is to call Bury Locksmiths at 0161 870 6457 and we will give you the free estimation. When you don't know the details, then it's hardly possible to be precise. Remember: All locks differ in price.
For one case, replacing the door lock takes from 10 to 20 minutes, when for the other door it needs to be disassembled and assembled completely, which can take up to 2 hours.
There were cases when it was necessary to take away the door for a longer time to replace the lock.
I have non-standard door. Can you work with it?
Yes. Most external and internal doors are available in special sizes, and we work with different brands of locks.
I lost my keys, or they have been stolen, I'm not sure. What should I do?
First of all, stop the panic. If you are not in the doghouse yet, chances are high, so we recommend changing the locks for security reasons.
