Ensure the integrity of your security doors with proper repair and maintenance from the best provider in Perth. Oh, and here’s where you can find them…

Security doors are designed to give homes an extra degree of protection from intruders.

Yet they’re also frequently used as a main point of entry for a home, which means they are subject to natural wear and tear. They’re also exposed directly to the WA elements as the outer door for your home, which means that Mother Nature can sometimes do a number on them.

Whether you recently suffered damage from a break in attempt or your security doors are just showing the signs of typical use (or overuse), proper repair is important to keeping your home safe and preserving the integrity of these doors.

Choosing the best security door repair near you in Perth can be a bit of a challenge, especially if you have never needed to investigate this issue before. Luckily, there are some key steps you can take to find the right service for your needs.

Here’s what you need to know.

What makes a reliable security door provider?

When you’re looking at your options for security door repair, you’ll want to go with more than just a typically handyman service.

Security doors are designed for specific strength and durability in part due to their installation and configuration. If repaired improperly, you could compromise the integrity of the doors and the safety of your home.

That narrows your search down to a security door provider. But how do you find the best one near you?

You can start by looking at whether or not any service you are considering is police licensed. This designation is important because it means that they have the right security knowledge to do installation and repair properly. The licensure comes with a set of required training and registration that not only ensures that the repair work will be done right but that the installer will be trustworthy when securing your home.

Key questions to ask before having your security door repaired

Once you have a short list of police licensed installers, you can start to narrow down the options even more.

Make sure that anyone you are considering is also fully insured so that your property is protected no matter what. This will also make sure everyone stays safe and covered during any work performed on your home.

Next, ask about experience. New services may spring up in town, but that doesn’t mean they have a track record of providing quality service and performance. The more experience in the field, the better.

Other questions you can ask to find the best security door repair options for you include:

  • “Do you offer any warranties on the repair parts and labour?”
  • “What free estimates or assessments are available?”
  • “How many years have you been in business?”
  • “Where do you source your materials and parts?”
  • “Do you purchase or manufacture your security doors?”
  • “Will you be able to color match the material I already have?”
  • “Do your products come with certifications?”
  • “Do all of your repair materials pass the Australian Standards?”

Why security door repair is not a DIY project

From a broken or rusted hinge to an attempt to jemmy a lock, security doors can take a beating. But as small as some of these parts may look, don’t be fooled by how complicated it can be to fix them. There are special guidelines in place via the Australian Standards that are intended to help protect homes. By attempting a DIY repair job, you might save money but you’ll probably compromise your security. No one wants that!

Instead, turn to experts who are well versed in the Standards required to keep your doors working as they are intended. For example, replacement locks must be installed so as to withstand the Anti-jemmy Test. New hinges must be affixed properly to pass the Pull Test and the Probe Test. There are also Impact Tests that can fail if the overall integrity of the door is not maintained.

A properly police-licensed installer will be able to ensure that all of the Australian Standards for these doors are met, and then some. You’ll also – hopefully! – get a warranty on the parts and labour work done when you hire out to a professional. Attempting to do this on your own will not only compromise your security but likely invalidate any warranties you could have enjoyed.
