New french doors supplied and fitted

Have used Dan’s services 3 times now. Extremely professional. Kind and reliable. One job actually turned out to be cheaper than first quoted. Amazing gentleman.

New lock on front door

Dan was lovely and very professional. I rang early in the morning about the problem with my front door. The quote over the phone was spot on and he was there before lunch time to come fix it. Will definitely use again if needed.

Locks replaced in front door and window lock repaired

I have used Dan a number of times for locks, main door and a window lock fixed. Every time Dan has been on time or early and is so quick to do a repair! He is courteous and extremely helpful and has also at times charged us less than we expected due to discovering the issue wasn’t as serious as originally thought. Can’t recommend high enough, don’t go anywhere else, we certainly won’t be!

Replace front door lock

Dan responded very quickly, replacing the front door lock, which was sticking and couldn’t be used. He was polite and friendly, and kept me informed about what needed doing and then got on and did it. He went out of his way to get the job done and dusted on the day, including getting extra keys cut, which was much appreciated. I’ve used Dan’s services previously and would be pleased to use his services again.

New door lock fitted

I’d highly recommend Dan. He was available on the same day, within a short while of initial contact. Gave me a price for the job before he arrived. And placed a new door lock on my composite door.

Lock on French doors fixed

Verified Review

Phoned Dan and he answered straight away, advised us of what he would need to do, and arranged to come out the next day. He fixed the problem quickly and in one visit. Very prompt and efficient service

New door fitted and brickwork repair

Highly recommend this company needed a door replaced very quickly to secure the property and needed brickwork repaired and plastering. Replaced internally, standard and finish of work was excellent also Dan went out if his way to get the door fitted as soon as possible and Wayne and Mark who carried out the work did an excellent job.

Buying new windows VS window repair

cropped-dr-locks-lofo-locksmith1.pngAre UPVC windows and doors maintenance Free?

Should you buy new windows and doors? or repair them?


When UPVC windows and doors were first introduced on the 90`s there main selling advantage was they were “Maintenance Free”. No such thing! anything that has moving or operating parts can not be maintenance free. Wood windows should be treated/painted every year and hinges and locks serviced at the same time, And so do UPVC windows and doors. They don’t need painted but to freshen them up you can use a alcohol based solution/restorer which removes grime and makes them look new. The hinges should be lubricated once a year with silicone spray or graphite paste (we don’t use WD40 as it dries out parts over time) and the same treatment should be given to your window locking mechanism.


Maintaining your windows and doors will prolong their life and if these parts fail they can be easily replaced by us. We repair Window hinges, Window handles, Window mechanisms, Glass, Door cylinders, Door multi-point locking systems, Letterplates, Door hinges and door panels.

Buying new windows and doors can be very costly and finding a reliable company that will offer a guarantee that will outlive the companies are becoming difficult to find, an average UPVC window is £200-£250 fitted an average hinge repair is £55! it makes sense to repair it.

Double glazing repair newcastle

Another jammed closed UPVC door, This job was for a tenant in Cramlington. The door had completely jammed up and the mechanism had failed. We quickly opened the door up and changed the multi-point locking system. the turn around on this job was an hour. It might be a pain in the neck when a door doesn’t operate properly but more importantly it is a massive safety issue as your doors are a point of exit in an emergency. don’t hesitate to call us. We also supplied and fitted a new euro cylinder while we were there.

A Lady in Jarrow called us because she had a jammed shut stable type door, We quickly opened the door up and found that the top part of the mechanism/multi-point locking system had failed. We called our parts supplier and to buy a new mechanism for this particular KFV branded unit was nearly £200 just in parts.

  Mortice sashlock changed in Tynemouth
Locksmith in North shields

Mortice sashlocks and dead locks are a must have if you are considering upgrading the security to your wooden door, very sturdy lock and not the easiest to gain entry to without the correct skills and specialist tools. Insurance companies will take these types of locks in to consideration and you could save money on your premium by having them fitted.

Our rating for this type of Lock







Locksmith in north shields

We removed this lock and upgraded it at a customers home today.

This the back part of a traditional rim cylinder (commonly known as a yale lock) and nightlatch setup, this is the nightlatch. Insurance companies do not look at these locks when evaluating your home security unless this part has a deadlock function attached. We supply and fit These locks with the deadlock function.

combined with the mortice deadlock this lock can be very effective towards attacks

We rate this lock                            7/10
