Valentino did a fantastic job on our bathroom - this included plastering, plumbing, laying a vinyl floor, electrics, carpentry and tiling. All of these jobs were done to a high standard. He was very reliable, worked with as little fuss and noise as possible and was friendly and polite. We felt the fee for his labour was very reasonable. We would highly recommend him.

After coming round to look at job, didn’t provide quote for job, no contact from tradesman even though I have sent message. Poor service, if he didn’t want to do the job at least let me know. I would have given no stars but it won’t let me .

David and Anthony did an amazing job. They came at short notice and offered a very competitive price. The work was carried out to a high standard without leaving any mess. communication was perfect throughout and was completely stress free and they both stand behind their work which is evident in them insisting on not being paid until we were 100% happy. Would not hesitate to hire again for any future projects! Thank you Guys!

We have used Stephen for several jobs including window cleaning. This time we needed all our gutters and down-pipes clearing. He works hard, thoroughly and quickly. He has always done what he says he will do. His price is very reasonable. A pleasant and polite young man and it is always a pleasure to see him working at our property.

Locksmiths - what you need to know

What a locksmith can help with

  • Fitting a new lock.
  • Opening a locked door.
  • Replacing a door with a lock.
  • Emergency locksmith services if you’re locked out of your house or need the locks replacing quickly (normally 24/hr).
  • Burglary repairs where there’s damage from forced entry.
  • Key cutting.
  • Auto locksmithing (helping you get back into a locked car).

What should I do if my key’s hard to turn in the lock?

Over time, dust and dirt can build up on the internal mechanisms that control the movement of a lock. You can try applying dry graphite to lubricate it or if you think it might be more than just dirt affecting it, a locksmith can assess the mechanism and tell you if you need a new lock.

Wooden doors can also expand and contract which stops the lock from fitting into the door frame. This can happen if the lock was installed during hot weather or in the middle of winter. Once the temperature changes, the door can shift slightly. In most cases, the lock will still work if you wriggle the key around and get it engaged, but you can ask a locksmith to adjust the lock for you to stop this from happening.

Should I have all of my locks changed if my keys are lost or stolen?

You won’t always need to replace your set of locks if your keys are stolen. If you choose to replace your entire lock, the lock itself and the knob will be replaced but it can be cheaper to have your locks re-keyed. In a re-keying job, the tumbler’s replaced so that you keep your old lock but only a new key would be able to open it. Your old keys would stop working in the lock.

Insurance for locksmith work

There is no legal obligation for locksmiths to be insured but locksmiths may choose to purchase public liability insurance so they’re covered in the case of injury or accidental damage to a property.

Questions you should ask a locksmith

  • How long have they been trading?
  • Do they have public liability insurance and what does this cover?
  • Will they be carrying out the job themselves or sub-contracting it? If the job’s being carried out by someone else, what experience do they have and are they covered by insurance?
  • How long is the warranty period for the work?
  • Do they have a call-out charge (particularly for emergency repairs) and how much is this?
