Should I Change My Locks After Buying a House?

So you have just purchased your new house, your main focus is moving in, getting you car insurance and other important documentation to point to your new address and quick fixing parts of the property that you just aren’t feeling. This seems to be the priority for most new homeowners anyway.

Locksmith-New-Home

Have you ever thought “how many people have a set of keys to the house I have just bought?”, Not only the tenants before you will have keys, but how many times has the house changed hands since the locks were last changed? most houses have the same locks that the house was originally built with! Even worse, what if the house was a house share? or had been multiple house shares over the years?

Not As Secure As You First Thought
Only now you will realise that in fact your homes security is in jeopardy! it only takes one previous key holder to notice the property has recently come of the market and is about to become a home to new furniture, tv’s, laptops and jewellery! even worse, sensitive documents.

You can put your mind at peace, all you need to do is contact your local locksmith and ask for some advice, not only will the locksmith be able to change your door locks, window locks and provide new unique keys, they will also test how secure your home is by replicating a burglar. The locksmith will make sure only you and whoever you permit can access the property.

When choosing a locksmith, be sure they are legitimate and have plenty of reviews, even better get recommended one. If you require any more information and live in the south west of England be sure to give Salisbury Locksmiths a call, they serve many counties including Wiltshire, Hampshire, Dorset, Somerset and more.

Garage Door Spring Repair Gone Bad

So let me tell you how my do it myself garage door spring repair went not as I had planned and how Garage Service Pros came to my rescue.

I have to first admit, I was somewhat worried when deciding to work on my garage door springs on my own – I am a single mom with limited resources so I’m always trying to do a simple task myself such as fixing my car, plumbing, carpentry – you know, something like that. So why not repair the springs on my garage door. But there are risks associated with the introduction of these extreme door torsion springs necessary for a garage door, I was a bit concerned.

Garage Door Repair

I was aware that I needed to replace the springs of the garage door for a while now – just because they were not working for a long time. I do tend to put off tasks like this but at this point they were looking pretty bad. I wanted to avoid the situation that occurred recently at my neighbors as one of these had been totally destroyed.

So you bet I did some research and decided to purchase a new maintenance Garage Do It Yourselfthing I found online because I read the reviews, very good, and it overall sounded very doable and people seemed satisfied with the company.

Changing the torsion springs can be difficult and dangerous if you do not have the time to prepare properly. You must have basic safety equipment, such as safety glasses and gloves (in my case), and, above all, it is necessary to have the equipment and tools. This is how the Do It Yourself Garage Kit was particularly useful; I bought the right items specific to my garage door, they set clear direction on how to do their job, and I know the risks and how to somewhat reduce them.

Garage Door Spring Repair

The process is supposed to be done in two hours but not in my case – I was extra carefultrying to do this on my own and had to get a friend to help. We justcouldn’t get the cable in the cable drum correctly,needless to say I called my local garage repair company. They came the same day I called and were out in no time. I should have called them first before wasting my own time and energy trying to do a job this big myself.
