In a professionally designed home where attention to detail is everything, you will notice that even the handles and locks of each door have been carefully selected. The function, the level of security, the style, the feel, the finish, have all been determined by various people to achieve exactly what the homeowners want. They want their doors to look amazing and their handles to be a pleasure to use.

Some people when searching through trade directories, get put off when they read that someone is a "specialist" in a certain field. They assume that specialists must charge a lot more money for their services, therefore it is safer to go with just the general type of trades person.
When it comes to installing door hardware, the handles and locks that you use everyday, it really does pay to hire a specialist.

Who do I call to install the door hardware????
A locksmith, Builder, Carpenter or Handyman? This is where things can and do go horribly wrong!
