Why Are Braintree Locksmiths Required?
Security needs vary from residential to commercial property and from houses to flats. In general, some just require a lock change after a house move, whilst others need a lock repair due to a lever spring snapping in a wooden door lock.
Summer Locksmith Services Call Outs
During hot spells, a wooden and or uPVC door swell, making them difficult to either close and or lock. Owners then use excess pressure to force the lock to engage. After a period of time, the lock will break or the key will snap.
Both events will leave a property insecure and will require the service of an emergency locksmith. If you are forcing your doors to close, then please look at the alignment and adjust it, it will be cheaper than calling out a Braintree locksmith.

Winter Time Locksmith Work
Sadly, in winter we see an increase in burglaries around Xmas time. Made easier by poor home security, such as no window locks or having low-grade locks that aren’t insurance approved.
Extreme cold periods coupled with poorly maintained doors often led to locks breaking due to water ingress.
When rubber seals on uPVC doors perish or when wooden isn’t maintained water magically makes its way into your locks. The water then freezes during cold spells, causing issues.
- Boarding up
- Burglary repairs
- Door realignment (wooden and uPVC)
- Security review or guidance
- Key cutting
- Mechanical access control
- Garage and window locks – insurance approved
If there is a locksmith service you need but isn’t listed above, then please get in contact as there are too many to list. However, we do not touch cars or cut car keys.
Family Business and Not A Call Centre
As a family run business, we have been providing a Braintree locksmith service for over 11 years. In that time we have seen an increase in national locksmith companies, that hire inexperienced locksmiths.
They spend a fortune on Google Ads to get your business. They are effectively a call centre, who subcontract the job out.
The subcontractors are not local locksmiths and will travel up to an hour away. As a customer, this response time isn’t good enough, especially if it is an emergency service you need.
The Lock Father’s Vans
Our locksmiths will only ever turn up in sign written vans, which are fully stocked with locks, uPVC door gearboxes and other high-quality property security products.
We cover all areas in and around Braintree, with the aim of completing all jobs on our first visit, giving our customers the best possible locksmith experience.
Some jobs will require a second visit, there is the odd home in Essex that has an obscure door or lock fitted, requiring parts to be ordered.
