How To Choose A Door Lock To Install

When moving into a new home, it’s important to install a new door lock to ensure your security. However, deciding which lock you want installed by a trusted handyman can sometimes prove difficult. With that, here are some guidelines to help you in purchasing a door lock.

 

mortise-lock-door-lock-installation-everyworks-handyman-singapore

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Which Lock Type Is Most Suitable For You?

Though most doors share similar features, it’s still important to know what material they’re made of and the specific type of lock they require. This is to ensure that the door lock you purchase is durable enough and secure enough. Seek guidance from an experienced handyman to determine what type of lock your door requires.

The following are two types of locks commonly used in residences in Singapore:

  • Mortise Locks: Mortise locks normally consist of two components whereby the main component is bored deep into the side of the door. This type of lock is the only which attaches to the door from the inside and is commonly used in Singapore residences.
  • Latch Bolts: These types of locks are beveled and consist of a spring-loaded mechanism. The spring ensures that the bolts retract whenever the lock is opened and extend each time the lock is closed.

What Lock Features Should You Look Out For?

Though deadbolts and latch locks remain common, many homeowners nowadays take features into account when choosing which door lock to install. These include door lock design, security level, and mechanism type.

Door Lock Design

Some homeowners don’t feel the need to change the lock that comes with the main door of their new home. In fact, a number of them simply wish to replace the lock’s cylinder in order to prevent any security breaches by previous residents.

Nevertheless, when changing door locks, many others still consider design as an important factor. Some door locks consist of fancy patterns while others include more digital features such as biometric functions. If you’re inclined to purchase a digital door lock, it may help to eradicate some of the common door lock installation mistakes and are subject to less door repair services.

Door Lock Security Level

High-security locks come in many different forms such as anti-drill locks. These locks consist of saw-resistant bolts which include anti-saw pins that make it difficult for the deadbolt to be sawed through. In addition, there are solid steel chips placed inside the casing which are drill-resistant. They are also less likely to experience any door lock related issues.

 

Door Lock Mechanism Type

For some people, how a door lock functions is an important factor to consider when deciding which one to purchase. Some homeowners may choose to install digital door locks to give access to friends and family via individual passcodes. Meanwhile, others may choose to install door handles instead of door knobs to provide easier access. There are even buyers who may prefer an automatic night latch lock for better convenience.

Factors To Consider When Hiring A Handyman

If you’re currently experiencing any door lock-related issues, it’s best to seek help from an experienced handyman. But before doing so, make sure to study your door lock carefully to see where the problem lies so that you can avail of the most appropriate service available. In addition, always remember to keep the following factors in mind when booking:

  • Time period: Any reliable handyman should be able to arrive at your doorstep within the day once you’ve booked their services. Fortunately, most of them arrive between half an hour to an hour after booking.
  • Knowledge: A professional handyman always arrives prepared and have their complete set of equipment with them. They should also have the capacity to analyze your door lock issues thoroughly and solve them as efficiently as possible. Moreover, they should be able to avoid any door lock installation mistakes whatsoever.
  • Pricing: Always make sure to engage with a door lock repair service with competitive prices instead of those with cheap quotas. See to it also that the services being provided are priced legitimately and that there are no hidden charges of any kind.

If you’re in need of a trained, experienced, and knowledgeable handyman, then don’t hesitate to contact Everyworks Singapore. Whether it be for door installation or door replacement, we always ensure that our customers are provided with the most efficient and professional door repair services available.

 

 

Common Door Lock Installation Mistakes To Avoid

 

Door lock installation is a common procedure undertaken by homeowners to enhance security. In most cases, it is done when moving into a new home or when changing a loose door latch or door knob. If you’re looking to install a new door lock, make sure to avoid the following mistakes:

 

 

choose-good-door-locks-door-lock-installation-mistakes-everyworks-handyman-singapore

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Purchasing Substandard Locks

Purchasing a cheap door lock may not seem like a serious matter at first. However, it’s important to remember that intruders can pick substandard door locks more easily as compared to pricier but more durable door locks. Moreover, these locks are less durable and may cause you to struggle with various door lock issues over the long term. So to ensure your security, always make sure to buy a high-quality door lock such as a professional grade lock, smart digital door locks, or even a heavy deadbolt.

 

Measuring The Door Incorrectly

Failing to measure your door correctly may make it difficult to close once the door lock is installed. As such, it’s best to measure it from its unbeveled side to ensure

that the lock is angled correctly. Otherwise, the door lock may end up being installed in a crooked manner thereby preventing the door itself from locking properly.

Misaligning the Lock

One common mistake made by homeowners when installing or changing a door lock is positioning the deadbolt or door knob incorrectly. In fact, many only come to realise this once the lock has been screwed in. It’s important, therefore, to ensure that your lock is oriented properly so as to prevent it from locking from the opposite side. Should you face difficulty with this process, contact cheap handyman services to assist you.

 

Installing Digital Locks Without Proper Knowledge

Digital locks have undoubtedly been in heavy circulation in recent times mostly due to their high security level. However, not many homeowners know how to properly install them and many fail to consider the complex processes involved. It’s best, therefore, to contact a professional handyman if you wish to install such a model in your home.

Disregarding Weather Conditions

Before installing or changing a door lock, it’s necessary to take note of current weather conditions. The reason for this is because strong weather changes can cause your doors to warp thereby making them difficult to lock. If you happen to reside in an area in Singapore with high humidity or damp conditions, then it’s best to purchase weatherproof door locks which don’t require too much door repair servicing.

Drilling Door Holes Incorrectly

Installing a door lock normally requires you to bore holes into your door. However, many homeowners fail to carry out this process correctly. To properly create holes for the door locks, begin drilling the holes from the inside until the centre portion of your drill protrudes through the door. Afterward, switch sides and continue the process. This ensures that the door incurs minimal damage and avoids splintering. If you continue to experience difficulty, don’t hesitate to contact handyman drilling services for assistance.

 

There’s no need to feel anxious about door lock-related issues since they tend to be fairly common. Should you happen to experience any, simply contact an experienced handyman to provide you with assistance. Feel free to also view our price list for more information on the different door repair services we provide.

 

Things To Note Before A Door Lock Installation

Securing your home or office is always vital, and one of the ways to do this is by installing new door locks. When it comes to replacing your door locks, you have the option to either install the new models yourself or have a professional handyman install them for you. Should you choose to set them up yourself, it’s important to take note of a number of factors which include the following:

 

Cost-effectiveness

Installing your new door lock by yourself has its own advantages. For one, it may be more affordable since you don’t have to pay any labor costs. That said, not having sufficient knowledge on proper door lock installation can result in various mistakes. These in turn may require constant door repair servicing which will only lead to costly expenses over the long term. As such, make sure to keep cost-effectiveness in mind before deciding to install a door lock by yourself.

Choosing The Right Door Lock

When doing a door lock replacement, it would seem practical at first to purchase a model of the same size to avoid any further modifications to your door. But this may not actually be feasible since many modern door lock models come in relatively larger sizes. Therefore, when deciding which door lock is most suitable for you, it’s better to prioritise more critical factors such as durability and security level rather than worrying about lock size.

Using The Proper Equipment

Most door-related services involve many intricate procedures. As such, they require the use of the best tools and equipment available, something which most households don’t have. It’s best, therefore, to contact a reliable handyman to provide you with assistance should you be in need of any services such as a door lock installation.

 

Having Sufficient Knowledge

Installing a door lock is never an easy process since it requires sufficient knowledge on the procedures involved. Thus, if you intend to replace your lock, then don’t hesitate to contact a recommended handyman to do it for you. Doing this will prove highly convenient since professional handymen are equipped with proper knowledge on various door repair services. In addition, you can also seek guidance from them on a number of door lock-related issues which you wish to avoid in the future.

 

 

screwing-in-knob-door-lock-installation-everyworks-handyman-singapore

 

 

 

 

 

 

Door Lock’s Proper Alignment

One common door lock issue which some homeowners face involves the lock failing to close properly. This can be caused by misalignment as a result of improper door lock installation. To prevent this, avoid installing your door lock by yourself and instead contact a professional handyman to assist you.

 

Possibility of Locking Yourself Out

Locking yourself out of your home by accident can be a very difficult experience. As such, it’s always vital to never forget your keys when installing your door lock. Make sure to also install your door from inside to avoid any inconveniences. Most of all, seek assistance from a professional handyman so as to prevent any problems whatsoever.

 

Safety Precautions

As mentioned, a door lock installation involves the use of many different tools which can cause accidents if not handled properly. So make sure to always adhere to safety guidelines and precautions when setting up your door lock in order to avoid any hazards. This will make sure that your door lock is installed properly and that no one suffers any injury in the process.

 

Installing a door lock with care is always important since it functions as your home’s first line of defense. Thus, to avoid any issues, make sure to contact Everyworks Singapore to provide you with professional door repair services. View our price list for more information.
