Why Repair and Not Replace Your Window Locks?
It is nearly always simpler, easier and more cost-effective to repair a lock rather than replace the entire locking mechanism. In a lot of cases, window locks are not totally broken. Locks could just be rusted or in need of good cleaning.
We always attempt to troubleshoot the lock problem to be sure it cannot be repaired before we suggest a window lock replacement. We conduct a proper inspection of both the window and the locks and keys so that we can avoid unnecessary costs by prematurely removing locks that are still in working condition. To do this, our professional locksmith will check to see if the lock is dirty. If it is, the lock is cleaned and wiped down with a suitable material.
If the lock is rusty, we gently clean it with oil and a wire brush. After that, it is tested to see if it is working again. For windows that make use of sliding locks, we examine the slides and make sure nothing is blocking in the lock. We also check to see if the frame and the window track are in good condition. We only replace the lock if the problem is from the lock itself and there is no other alternative.
What Types Of Window Locks Are Available?
Choosing a secure lock for your door is not all you need to do to ensure the safety of your home. You need to do the same for your window. The security of your home depends on how strong and reliable the locks you use for your windows and doors are.
At Keychange Locksmiths, we provide an extensive range of lock varieties and work with all types of windows. We also offer you our expert advice on the best type of locks which can add extra security to your windows. Some of the locks are:
This is a popular type of window lock. It provides a key with which to open and lock the window. It is mostly used with double-hung windows. Each window in your home gets a different lock. If you have a lot of windows, it may be difficult for you to keep track of the keys you use for each window. However, it is a highly secure method of window protection.
Window latch locks
This is one of the most widely used lock options. They provide good security to homeowners in Brighton. A part of the latch is attached to one window. The other part of it is then attached to adjoining window which is closed. This gives you the freedom to lock or unlock your winnows at the same time.
Lag screw locks
This method is highly effective and also simple to boot. It is mostly used on double-hung windows. Lag screws are drilled into the recessed washers of the panels. They are then operated with the use of a special key that allows the lock to be tightened or loosened to either open or close the window.
They are made to fit within the side or track of the window in order to prevent them from sliding open. You can additionally install keyed locks for extra security.
Folding latch locks
This lock is installed only on double-hung windows. It allows the window to be opened to a degree and not completely. This provides you with security as well as air circulation.
How Do We Repair Your Window Locks?
There is no general process for repairing window locks. The repair of your window locks typically depends on the type of window lock you use. The procedure for repairing latch screw locks is not the same for repairing keyed locks.
First, our locksmith determines your type of window and the best locks to use with them. This enables us provide the appropriate solution. We then troubleshoot the lock to see if it can be fixed or if it needs total replacement.
If the window makes use of latch locks, we unscrew the latch and replace it with a new latch that is screwed into the same spot. We drill new holes if the screws for the new locks are not of the same size with the existing locks,.
