Burglary repairs in Hyde are not the most common reason we get emergency calls. Lockouts, especially at night, are usually the reason for emergency calls. After a burglary with no forced entry, victims frequently request lock changes. Burglars are lazy. They don’t want to work or they would get a job. More often than not, burglars just walk through an open door or window. If the house is locked up tight, burglars usually just move on to the next house. Unfortunately, there are exceptions. If he knows he can’t be seen or heard, a burglar may force the door lock. He might kick the door, splintering the wood and breaking the lock. Forcing a tool between the door and lock plate will break the lock allowing entry. Burglars rarely have the skills to actually pick a lock.
There is no comfort in being the rare exception of a forced entry burglary. For victims in Hyde, burglary repairs after a break-in is, for them, an emergency. They naturally want damaged locks and doors replaced immediately to help them feel safe again. At Nimbus Locksmith, such calls are a priority for us. Damage is usually to the lock and the doorframe. We can make those repairs to both the hardware and the doorframe. The lock itself can often be repaired and that will be our first solution. Sometimes, the damage is just too extensive. We have to replace the locking mechanism, exterior doorknobs and even repair the surrounding door material. The important thing is we do have a solution and we can implement it quickly so you feel safe again.
UPVC door and lock burglary repairs in Hyde are managed differently than wooden doors. The UPVC material is usually the tough outer surface of the door. When it gets damaged by a forced entry and the lock within is compromised, we can make good-as-new repairs. When the door itself is completely made from UPVC with a built in lock, we can often make those repairs as well. This type of door is frequently used as an exterior screen and storm door or between garage and house. Contact Nimbus Locksmiths for complete repair or replacement of locks after a burglary. We are local with many years of experience. You can trust us to put your security first.
