When a door lock is faulty it can mean that the door may not open, close or lock securely. This is often a result of age and general wear and tear but can also be due to vandalism or an attempted break in.
As well as being inconvenient, a faulty lock can pose a serious security threat. Two in three burglars will gain access to a property through a door, so even if you feel that the rest of your house is secure, your faulty lock needs attending to right away.
If you’ve moved home or premises it’s advisable to change the locks. Unless you knew and trusted the previous owners or tenants it is unlikely that you will know exactly how many sets of keys were cut and are in circulation for your new property. We at Capital Locks can change locks on doors and windows, including garage doors and external doors. Call today on 01903 231544 or 01273 799289
