Door Hardware Restoration

Door Hardware Restoration

Door hardware is crucial for antique wrought iron, bronze or monumental doors to be functional, and not suffer further damage from worn out hardware parts. Locksets and parts made today are often not compatible with doors made a century or more ago, and simple lockset parts can cause the loss of use of a door and force replacement of the entire door. We restore old locksets and ornamental hinges to their original condition, to make them serviceable for the future. Our machine shop, casting and blacksmith forging services will restore all of the components found in any old or antique lock, no matter what condition they are in, no matter the size, from small entry doors, to fortress doors weighing well over 2,000 lbs., even bank vault doors.....................
