The slider off the kitchen roller wheels adjuster had become frozen and one set of rollers was stuck so far down it was almost impossible to get the door off the track and out of the frame to install new roller assemblies. Eddie and Tim worked hard to get that door out without tearing up the frame or the door. Eddie got it out after quite a lot of effort and obviously very experienced technique. He replaced the rollers and re-mounted the door and it works great now. That door slides easily and smooth as silk now. We also had them replace the mortisse (sp?) latch on the door too while they were there it was so old.
The downstairs basement door action improved after they installed new rollers on it, but its frame is not square anymore from settling for 25 years so the door is opens up a slight incline so it still takes a little bit of effort to open and close. But way better than it was with the original old rusty roller assemblies on it so we'll probalby get another 5 -10 years out of it before it has to be replaced.
As far as cost, King is not cheap. Part of the reason is that it takes a crew of two men to come and remove the door from its frame and track to diagnose the problems. Then if you proceed with any repair work the cost for the two of them together is $200/hour. But to be honest, after watching Eddie and his helper, I don't think just anyone could have gotten that kitchen door set out at all, and even more so without damaging the door or the frame around it -much less getting it all back together and working so well again. The cost to put in a cheap sliding glass door is over $2000. -And that would be an all vinyl one, which don't hold up all that well.
Make sure you understand all the costs associated with removing and repairing sliding glass doors before proceeding, but I highly recommend King Lock and Door. They were punctual, pleasant, wore masks, and didn't leave me with a mess. They well worth the cost in my opinion.
I didn't give them that 5th star because of the cost. But I suspect if I had used someone line Blaine who's cheaper but their reviews on Checkbook are abysmal it wouldn't have ended so well. - 9/28/2020
Not only that, but he also made sure I totally understood how the locking system worked (as it's an antique lock that was completely alien to me).
Also, when I changed my mind at the last second about the deadbolt I had chosen, he said it was no problem at all, and happily/quickly replaced it with my new choice.
He was knowledgeable, friendly, efficient, and thorough, and I couldn't be happier with his work! Our house now feels a million times safer and more secure thanks to Jose.
So glad I made this appointment! I wish I could give 20 stars! Highly recommend this company! Ask for Jose!! - 1/06/2020
My office is just a few blocks away and I was having some issues with keys that I had previously gotten copied. Shane took my call; he was extremely professional and helpful and made some new copies for me right on the spot (as I told him I was pressed for time).
I will definitely be returning! - 11/17/2019

I can make a difference... - 1/10/2019
The key that needed extraction was jammed in the key hole and Edgar got it out after a few moments of maneuvering and manipulating the broken key tip.
I actually called a few other locksmiths who were going to charge me more and a few who didn't even answer, Ed was very reasonably priced, was quick, efficient, a pleasure to work with and provided excellent service! - 1/01/2019
Thanks to Ed, I didn't have to spend Christmas in the cold. Thank you so much! 5/5 will be recommending again. - 12/27/2018
