Will the Same Person Measure and Install My Security Door?


Home improvements can be exasperating for many reasons, but it definitely makes things run a little more smoothly if you can avoid double-handling and having different trades people involved in the same task. Jim’s security doors in Melbourne understands this and can ensure the same professional will visit your home to measure your doorway and provide you with a quote and then return to your address to ultimately install your custom-made door at a mutually convenient time.

 Security doors are an effective and efficient way to improve your home security as well as boosting the curb appeal of your property. Don’t feel bamboozled by the process of choosing and installing a security door, Jim’s Security Doors offers a simple, streamlined process that ensures the same person measuring your door and providing you with a quote for the installation will then return to install the door and complete the work. Here are the four simple steps to ensuring you have a brand-new security door protecting your home soon:

  • Choose a reliable security door provider and select a design that you think will best suit your home;
  • Arrange for a measure-and-quote from a trained professional;
  • The door will be custom-made to perfectly fit your home and your specifications; and
  • The person who measured the doorway will return to install your door. It’s that easy!

Expert door installation

Installing a door requires precision and expertise. Door frames, particularly in older properties are often different shapes and sizes and not necessarily completely square. An experienced installer will be able to ensure your custom-made security door will perfectly fit the doorway. While it might seem like a DIY opportunity, it’s important to have your door professionally installed. In some cases, if your door is not installed by a qualified professional it will void your warranty and an incorrectly installed door may leave you vulnerable to a break-in attempt.

Jim’s Security doors offers a huge range of security doors and screens, all manufactured to be in compliance with Australian Standards testing to ensure that the doors are strong and durable and will be able to withstand a forced entry attempt. Jim’s Security also offers expert installation to ensure quality workmanship and a perfect fit for your door. Our experienced installers can visit your property at a time that’s convenient for you and provide expert advice and take precise doorway measurements to ensure your security door perfectly fits the space.

If necessary, our installers can also replace old, weakened door frames to support your new door.

What to expect from a professional door installation service

The main reason to have your door professionally installed is to ensure your door functions as intended and is able to protect you and your home from intruders. A shoddy inexact installation may result in costly repairs, a void warranty, or a thief being able to force your door open. So, when it comes to professional installers, what should you look for?

  • An installer that can demonstrate a high level of experience;
  • Go through a reputable business that can be held accountable for the proper and satisfactory completion of the job; and
  • It’s also worth choosing a business that can provide you with end-to-end services, from choosing a door, to measuring the doorway, and finally on to the installation process.

Continuity of workmanship

Making improvements to your home can be a stressful process, particularly if you have to worry about having to explain the same thing to different workers. It’s easy to get your wires crossed and for there to be misunderstandings resulting in mistakes or unsatisfactory results. Jim’s Security Doors offers continuity of workmanship, with the same person who measures your doorway being the same person who will return to your property to hang your custom-made security door.

 How long will it take to install the door?

It’s advisable to allow approximately an hour for the installation of a security door. In some cases, it can take as little as 15 minutes to install, but often it can take a little longer because each home is unique, with unique measurements. In some cases, door frames may need to be trimmed or adjustments may need to be made if the door jamb isn’t completely square, and if necessary, the installer can remove your old door. Once your doorway has been properly prepared, the lock, handles, hinges and striker can be attached before your door is hung. That’s it! Sit back and enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your home is protected by a security door.
