A broken door is rarely an errand you can put off dealing with for too long, mainly due to the security risks of having a broken door poses, but also because it is something you use every day.
Here are five reasons why you should consider hiring a professional repair company next time you have an issue with one of your doors.
1) Better security
Whether it’s your front door or another exterior door, there is nothing more important than ensuring your home or business is secure.
Not only is a professional technician more likely to have quality replacement parts to make sure anything being repaired is solid, but they have the expertise to ensure everything is installed perfectly.
2) A warranty for peace of mind
There’s nothing worse than fixing something yourself, only to have it break again soon afterwards, sending you back to square one. When you’re dealing with a professional company, you have the peace of mind that if something goes wrong, their warranty should cover it.
For example, Lock & Roll’s warranty states that nearly all the materials they use carry a six-year warranty, if they are sourced from Australian Window Association providers.
Plus, Lock & Roll provide a two-year warranty on all their workmanship, so in the unlikely event something goes amiss, a professional technician can be back out to help you for no extra cost.
3) Tools and materials to suit every door
From hinged doors to sliding doors, glass doors to aluminium or timber doors there is a wide variety of hardware, materials and tools that can be required to fix a door, which can really add up in terms of cost! By the time you have bought everything you need, you might as well have just paid a professional to come and take care of it for you.
Because a technician will have an entire toolkit and an array of materials on hand, there’s also less risk of getting halfway through the job and realising you’ve forgotten a crucial part. And, if your door does require something a little bit unusual, a professional will be able to easily source it for you.
4) Safety and insurance
Some doors are quite heavy and if you’re not used to manoeuvring them around it can be a safety hazard for you to attempt to repair it yourself.
Not only will a professional know what they’re doing and therefore be less likely to injure themselves on the job, but a reputable company like Lock & Roll will also have public liability insurance.
This means that if anything unfortunate was to happen and the technician or your property was damaged in any way, all medical costs and repairs would be covered by insurance, rather than you having to cover them yourself.
5) Save yourself some time
Figuring out what the problem is, determining the parts or hardware that need replacing, measuring your door, shopping for the tools and materials you need – even a simple repair can end up taking up a fair bit of time when you consider the process from start to finish.
So, why not simply pick up the phone or take a couple of minutes to request a quote online from a professional company, and then sit back and relax, knowing that everything is going to be taken care of for you.
