Your buildings insurance should provide cover for the repairs to the damage caused by a burglary so it might be worth having a word with them. Where appropriate and if it helps, we can liaise with them to ensure that you get the security solutions appropriate to your situation and have them installed in a timely manner.
Our repairs include but are not limited to
– door repairs
– door replacements
– frame repairs
– frame replacements
– lock changes
– installation of British Standard locks conforming to BS3621 and approved by insurers
Where it is clear from a burglary that a door frame was the weakest point of your home security, we can provide reinforcement bars to the hinge side and/or lock side of the frame as part of our repairs. This will give the frame added strength to withstand any future attacks but only if fitted correctly. The types of reinforcement bars referred to are called London Bars and Birmingham Bars. They work differently but both offer great protection.
Sometimes our customers are not able to proceed with the necessary repairs right after a burglary. So our emergency boarding up service can be a fantastic temporary solution to secure vulnerable areas. In a lot of cases, your insurance company might be able to help with the cost.
For an emergency response, why not try one of our sympathetic locksmiths in your local area. We can be with you in as little as 30 minutes!
The lock on our front door broke. John came out at 1am on a Sunday, 15mins after he promised he would. He did an excellent job. I’d definitely recommend him.
