Customer Feedback

Gain access and replace lock


Quick to help and was very professional.

Installation of sash locks and handles on internal doors


Barry, was friendly, reliable and informative.  He was professional in his approach.  His standard of finish is of very good quality.  Would recommend and will certainly use again.

Replaced cylinder in my lock also cut extra keys


Very prompt service.  Explained everything, very friendly, would recommend no problem.

Locked out of house


I was locked out of house and Barry came in a short time and got me in easily.  Very impressed.

Replaced a multipoint lock on a upvc door


Barry came twice, firstly to look at the job as the original lock was old and no longer made.  He returned once the ordered parts arrived and fitted a new lock, keep and handles.  Because of age and inevitable wear and tear on the door the job didn't go quite as smoothly as expected but Barry was very diligent and got everything aligned and working as it should.  He was clean and tidy in his work, very personable and friendly.  We have every confidence in him and would call again if the need arose.

Speedy and professional job done.

Fantastic job, opened door without any damage.  Repaired and replaced worn parts, carefully explaining the processes.  Giving tips for on going maintenance and clear advice for completing insurance forms in future.  A perfect tradesman, thanks Barry.

Supply and fit door locks/mechanism


Highly recommended. Work was completed to a high standard, with no mess left despite it being a tricky job due to existing door being so old.  Would use again.

Repairs to broken and additional locks to conservatory door


Replied to my telephone enquiry quickly.  Punctual, courteous and polite, gave detailed description of the work required and carried out the work required as swiftly, competently and at a reasonable price previously quoted.  Would have no hesitation in recommending him to others and will certainly use his services again when required.  5 STAR!!

Replace a worn gearbox for the deadlocking on the front door


An excellent service, came out initially on the same despite me not calling until mid afternoon.  Returned to complete the job on the afternoon as the replacement part arrived.  Would definitely use again and I am happy to recommend use of this tradesperson.

I really appreciated Barry's time and patience with my elderly Mum, she is quite nervous about strangers in the house and his kindness really helped the situation.

Secured property and replaced lock


Excellent service - would highly recommend.  Tidy, efficient and conscientious.

New locks x2 and new dead locks


Fast reliable and knowledgeable.  Nothing was too much trouble for this guy. Reasonably priced too. 5* recommendation!

Replacement lock


After having Barry replace the main front door lock to our business premises, the decision was made to change a second lock to be operated with the same key.  Barry was able to supply a second lock with was 'keyed alike'.  The work was carried out to a high standard and within days of the quote being accepted.  We would not hesitate to recommend.

New Lock


Barry did a great job and was really helpful!  Started the work immediately with no delays, would highly recommend.

Front door lock broken, tried to gain access without destructive force


On time, polite, helpful.  Could not gain non destructive entry but left our house secure and found us a joiner to replace our door.  Would recommend.  Would use again.

New locks fitted to our place of business and additional keys provided


Barry was friendly and professional.  He provided us with brand new locks for our main front door and also new additional keys for our staff.  He was very tidy whilst replacing the lock and made sure that everything worked and got people to try the lock out and some of the keys before he left.  A great job at a great price.  We will definitely use again.

New gear system installed on exterior door


Delighted with the work undertaken, very efficient, was here when he said he would be, keep us well informed regarding when parts would arrive and great aftercare service provided.  It's helpful to have someone local to us as we have had difficulties in the past getting someone nearby to carry out similar repairs.
