Install a new door knob

I can install a new door knob

Install a new door knob will do wonders for doors.  This may also include deadbolts and even door hinges. I also adjust entry doors, interior doors and screen doors so they operate smoothly.

Door hardware problems-

  • Won’t stay shut or lock
  • Door knob is loose or doesn’t operate smoothly
  • Knob or lever is broken
  • You want a different color or finish

Won’t stay shut or lock-

This usually happens when the latch (the part on the door that goes in and out) doesn’t line up with the strike plate. This can happen if the home has settled and causes the door frame to be out of square. I can fix this for you.

Knob is loose or doesn’t operate smoothly-

Sometimes the door hardware just needs replacing. Lubricating the knob and latch and tightening the screws will sometimes fix this problem. If the latch is the problem, i can replace it with another one (depending on the brand).

You want a different color or finish-

If the hardware is more than 10 years old, the finish probably has spots or is worn. And, you may want to update the hardware with a different look anyway. The most popular COLORS for door hardware are gold or brass, nickel, chrome and black. A lot of hardware manufacturers also offer different “finishes” (the appearance of the color). Examples are bright (shiny), antique, brushed, satin, oil rubbed. After you have decided on the color and finish, contact me so we can set up an appointment for the installation.
