Added Security for Your Screen Door

Changing a screen door lock doesn’t have to be due to a damaged lock, it could be a good idea just the same as a normal door lock cylinder replacement.

A new lock or an added lock such as a deadbolt can bring a fresh sense of security to your home.

While a standard lock might be good enough, some care for an additional layer of security.

And we can add any type of security for your screen door. From a simple new lock to a whole new door.

Screen Door Electronic Lock

An electronic door lock is one of the latest and greatest fads in a while.

We install a variety of smart locks professionally and with care, a quality installment with extra care for your door’s look and feel.

A good E-lock or a smart lock can help manage the flow of people in your home.

Letting the postman in with a single-use passcode, or providing a special code for the babysitter to get in and out as she pleased – but be notified when she does!

And this is just the beginning, so many features can be added when using a smart lock!

The door can be unlocked automatically once you get to the door, remotely locking the door if you or your forgetful significant other forgot to lock the door on their way out and of course the immense upside of never forgetting your keys again is most definitely a plus!

Screen Door Handle With Deadbolt

While an electronic lock is definitely an upside – some people still like a good old-fashioned lock.

And we can definitely assist, or even just give you expert advice.

Adding a deadbolt to your screen door is definitely a good option, and we got a variety for you to choose from!

We have Schlage, Yale, Kwikset, and many more for you to choose from!
