There are quite few factors that can influence the functionality of your doors and Markham Door Repair Service can take care of anything needed. Maintenance, repair, replacement or installation of any kind of doors, including their hardware, is Markham Door Repair Service speciality. Exterior doors such as the main entry door are larger and heavier than interior doors and are made out of steel or wood. The exposure to rain and weather conditions can make repairs more complicated and can cause unexpected damages within the door or frame. The door knobs and hardware are also more expensive as they come in an endless variety of styles and material types.
French doors can add style and light to any room with its glass lite design and its wide frame. They cost a bit more to repair than sliding doors. Sliding doors make great patio doors and consists of large heavy glass material and a track system. Wood doors are classic and traditional. Problems with doors can arise from few hardware issues or even from the material of the door.
- Lock mechanism problem – The primary functions of a door is to provide privacy and security, if your door does not lock properly then you should tend to it as soon as possible. Lock sets can be made out of nickel, brass, bronze, and other options. If your system has a deadbolt, this can add to the cost. If perhaps you now want a deadbolt lock installed and an opening need to be made, our technician will require specialized tools and have to replace all necessary parts.
- Door knob issue – If your door knob seems to be broken, tight, or loose then adjustment or replacement may be necessary. We can include the parts with the installation. If this is an issue with an interior door, we will try to match the color and style of all the other interior doors. Door knobs are perhaps the most commonly used latch hardware in the area. The difficulty of your installation can be affected by the level of preparation and any repairs needed for the door and jamb. If a new door or jamb is not up to accommodate the door knob, latch, and plates, we will need extra time to complete the installation properly.
- Door handles – Handle sets are an attractive option for entry doors, and have a few more installation concerns than traditional door knobs and levers. Handle sets do not typically have integrated locks, so are often installed with a coordinating or built-in deadbolt for security, and are attached to a door at more points than other latch systems. The added steps to fit a deadbolt and mount the handle set contribute to installation rates.
- Hinge malfunction – Overtime the screws and hinges of a door system can become loose, crack, or come off completely. Adequate hinges are essential to properly support and operate your door. Whether necessary for a new installation or part of an upgrade to match other hardware, installing or upgrading door hinges is generally not complicated. While pre-hung doors are provided with hinges in place and some slab doors are fit for latches and mortised for hinges, some doors require careful preparation to fit hardware. Hinges come in sets of three and should match the lock and door knob design. The door will need to be completely taken off, replaced, and hinged back into its proper place.
- Door cracked – Doors can crack after prolonged use or even because of outside weather conditions. If the crack on the door is large enough to become an eye-sore or compromise the function of the door, then it should probably be replaced. It can be difficult to repair a crack on the actual door without any leaving any cosmetic blemishes, so call for our professional team to help.
- Door not opening or closing – If you have just replaced your floors or an exterior door has warped because of the outside heat or cold, then you may be facing problems with your door not opening or closing properly. Our technician can fix this issue and the cost will be depending on the type of door and whether it is an interior or exterior door.
- Broken screen – Screens are great door protectors and provide access to natural air and sunlight. Screen frames can be built out of light steel, aluminium, or wood. At times glass lites, springs, hinges, or handles may need replacement.
- Broken door frame – An interior or exterior door can become damaged by moving furniture, children playing, or prolonged heavy use. Whether you are having problems opening the door or perhaps it has aged badly, sometimes it will be easier to replace the entire door as oppose to attempting a blemish repair.
Installing or up-grading door hardware is essential for its function and security. Common door hardware includes locks, pulls, hinges, doorknobs, and kick plates, and though installation procedures are generally consistent, the features of your door and hardware may affect the cost of installation. Installing hardware on a new door is usually not complicated, though the type of hardware and level of preparation needed to fit it will help determine the difficulty of the job. Fitting any hardware on a fully prepared door will require less time and effort that removing a door to mount new hinges or drilling the door and jamb for a new deadbolt. New installations are priced, depending on the requirements of the project. Fitting replacement hardware can be simple if modifications to the door are not required, but making repairs or adjustments to install a different type of latch or hinge may complicate the project and require more time that a direct swap or new installation. The specific requirements of your project will determine its cost. Properly installed door hardware can improve the appearance and function of any door, whether to latch an interior door or keep an entry door secure and weather tight. We can help you determine how the condition of your existing door and the features of your new hardware will contribute to the cost of installation. The locks you choose for your home need to be strong and secure enough to keep intruders from gaining access to your house. The front door bolt is often the first line of defence to keep your home safe. Dead bolts vary in size, style and materials, making some locks stronger and more effective than other locks. You have a variety of options when you are choosing a front door bolt. Armed with information about front door bolt installation, you will be ready to install the deadbolt you need to keep your family and home safe.
Dead bolt locks provide added security over standard lock sets and are installed in much the same manner as door knobs and other latches. Since dead bolts are installed independently of a latch though, your door and jamb must be drilled and chiseled to accept the lock, bolt, and plates. You should choose the highest quality you can afford in a dead bolt to provide the most security and protection for your family and home. Grade 1 dead bolts are the highest quality available or residential use. If you want to stop intruders cold, a vertical deadbolt will do this task. With a vertical deadbolt, you will have two vertical bolts instead of the one horizontal bolt. The vertical bolts fit into a special strike to secure the door to the door jamb. Although our professional will be able to by-pass a vertical deadbolt, most small-time burglars will not even try to mess with them. Check the dimensions of the lock against the door and the door jamb to make sure the lock will fit on your door.
Any door that leads into your house from the outside – whether through the garage, the back yard or the front yard – is an exterior door and needs a dead bolt. For the most secure exterior entryway, choose a door, frame and hardware designed to stop intruders. Exterior doors should contain wood or metal materials and they should be at least 1 ¼ inch solid core. Door frames need structural studs surrounding them for added strength. Adding a metal strike plate at the point where the dead bolt enters the door jamb will make it difficult for a burglar to use a crow-bar to pry open your door. All exterior doors should open inward to keep hinge pins inaccessible to burglars. If a door does open outward, you can modify the hinge so no one can remove the hinge pins by adding a screw to the middle of each hinge pin.
It takes time and expense to repair, replace or maintain exterior doors for sufficient security, but by calling our team for a fast and affordable help, your efforts will result in the peace of mind that comes from a safe and secure home. Call us 24 hours a day!
