About this pro

Everything is centered around our customer's satisfaction. We aim to offer competitively priced, professional service 100% of the time. We stand behind our work with a 90 day warranty, and because we are a member of the Good Contractor's List, you are covered by their $10,000 guarantee. If it isn't right, then it isn't done.

The people I help and the relationships I build with my customers are truly the thing I enjoy most. Everyday is a little different than the day before despite driving around Dallas/Fort Worth all day and working with locks and keys.

Don't necessarily go with the lowest price. Remember, in life, you get what you pay for.

If re-keying, counting the total number of keyholes. This will help with a quicker, more accurate quote.
