Dan came to our rescue after our front door jammed. He quoted a price in the phone. Arrived promptly and was absolutely lovely. Did the job quickly and efficiently and our door works perfectly. Would 100% recommend D R locks, and if anything goes wrong in the future I wouldn’t hesitate to have Dan back to do the job.

Access gained to property and lock repaired.

He was quickly contacted and attended within the hour. Access was gained to my property and the lock repaired without the need for a new lock. No damage was caused. An extremely professional service from start to finish, I recommend totally and would use again without hesitation.

The gentleman who I now know as Dan was very accommodating on the telephone and agreed to visit my house at a time suitable to me. He arrived at my house promptly and introduced himself. Dan removed his shoes before entering my house, without being asked to do so. Dan explained what he would be doing to fix my window locks and stated the time it would take. Dan worked diligently and efficiently. Keeping to the timeframe and agreed price. Dan was tidy going over and above my expectation of a tradesman exceptionally.”

“Darren was very quick in responding to my request to fix my window hinge: my window was fixed within half an hour of contacting him about the job. His quote was less than my usual window repairer shop and he did the job sooner than they were going to do it. When I explained to Darren my difficulties to have a tradesman in my house due to my severe OCD, he was very respectful of my health condition and he did his best to minimise any discomfort I might experience, by being very mindful of where he was putting his tools. I’m definitely keeping his details for all my future jobs :o)”

5 top tips to prevent a break in this Xmas

5 top tips to prevent a break in this Xmas 10 ways to prevent a break in this Xmas

We attend over 30 domestic break-ins per year in the Newcastle upon Tyne area. I have compiled a list of 5 easy steps to prevent your home from being broken into. If you would like to discuss any of the methods further or would like any more FREE advice please call 0191 9086053

1. Don’t showboat! – Burglars are normally opportunists, If they see a window or door open or high value items on display they might seize the moment.

Our advice – Close the blinds. Make sure you close windows and doors and don’t leave laptops, mobile phones or other high ticket items on display.

2. Social media

We all love to show off our holiday pics on Facebook, twitter or other social media outlets while everybody else is enjoying the miserable British weather but criminals use social media to ensure nobodies home.

Our advice – Don’t do it. When you post your pictures make sure its after your holiday and everybody knows it on your post.

3. Visual deterrents

If potential criminals see your home is secure and a neighbour’s isn’t, the chances are they we miss out your home all together.

Our advice – There are a number of visual deterrents including : CCTV, Alarms, Signage to show that you have a security feature in place or security grills and fencing.

4. Secure it 

If you have took all measures to deter criminals but they still want to have a go..

Our Advice – Secure it correctly: 

  • Upgrade to laminated glass (takes more force and noise to break)  
  • Upgrade your door locks ( Anti-snap, drill and pick)
  • Upgrade door handles ( Anti-snap and key hole cover)
  • Upgrade letter box cage
  • Install window sash jammers or restrictors to prevent the window being opened from the outside

5. Don’t Leave a Spare Key Out

­It may seem like a good idea to leave a spare key hidden under a flower pot or doormat in case you get locked out of your house. But that’s an open invitation for a burglar to walk inside without any difficulty. Someone could also see you retrieve the key at some point, giving away your hiding place.

Our advice – Install a key box and only give trusted friends or family the code to access it
