Don't Learn The Hard Way With Door Hardware.

By Tony Gouverneur, Jul 10 2017 06:59AM

Think of architectural hardware as door jewellery.

You can make each door a stunning feature of your home by dressing it up with high quality, designer handles, locks and accessories. The look and feel of prestige hardware is worth more than every dollar invested........ as long as it has been installed NEATLY & CORRECTLY!

There are good installers out there but sadly these tradespeople are few and far between. How can I make such an absurd statement? Because I am fed up with seeing dodgy installation work nearly every week.

Some of my work comes from unhappy home owners who got rid of their builder, carpenter or handyman who first had a go at installing. I normally find that a lock is installed upside down, the doors edges have been split and a big hole has been drilled on the wrong side of the door. Some new doors need replacing!

Another door ruined by a lowly skilled tradesman.

Rough and messy lock installation is so common, many years ago I noticed the lack of skill in this area and decided to create my own niche of being a specialist door hardware installer. That is how I eventually came up with the name “The Tidy Tradie - Lock Carpenter”.

Now every time you go to buy top quality door hardware from one of the big supply stores in Sydney, you will be given my details. I will be the one and only installer you need to pay to have everything installed correctly the first time.

My Motto – Done Once, Done Right!

If you need door handles and locks installed, please send an email to tony@tidytradie.com.au and I will reply asap.

Yours sincerely,
