Why book a door knob installation service through Airtasker?

Strong, durable, and well-functioning door knobs are essential to every home, store, or officer—and this is precisely why you should hire a Tasker to install yours.

When you book a door knob or door handle installation service on Airtasker, you get connected with professionals who can safely replace, repair, and install all kinds of handles. Airtasker makes it completely easy for you too. All you have to do is post your task on our platform, and you’ll get offers from dozens of Taskers within minutes!

Top Door Knob Installation related questions

You can choose to install a door knob on your own, but bear in mind that a professional is equipped with the training, knowledge, skills, and equipment needed for a smooth and successful procedure. Most importantly, you can easily injure yourself during the replacement or installation process if you’re not careful. Booking a door knob installation service is the safer option for you and the rest of your family!

Purchasing door hardware can be especially tricky, especially if you’re a first-time home or store owner. There are different door knobs: a keyed entrance door knob for exterior doors, passage door knobs and dummy knobs designed for closets or cabinets (typically non-locking), and handle sets. Before you order or buy new door hardware, be sure to discuss with your Tasker what knob or handle is best for your door.

A handyman is somebody equipped with the skills and equipment to do various domestic services. These services can include fixture replacement and installation, painting, door and window repair, and appliance repair. While a handyman can double as a locksmith, take note that a locksmith is somebody who specializes in the installation, repair, and replacement of residential locks and other security devices.

A door knob installation doesn’t take long—it usually takes about 5 to 10 minutes to replace and install a door knob or door handle successfully. However, the duration of your Tasker’s work will depend on the service that you require. If you need to install multiple door knobs or your door knob is severely damaged, it might take a little more time.

What do door knob installation services include?

If you just moved into a new home, are renovating your current one, or have got a damaged lock, then you just might need to book a door knob installation service. While the ranges of skills and services can vary across professionals, here’s what you can expect when you hire your Tasker.

Door knob fitting and assessment

Your Tasker may first have to check and recommend a new door knob for your door. This will require disassembling the old fixture, removing the faceplate, and unscrewing the latch. Then, they may propose different types of knobs that suit your door and your current needs, and these can include dummy door knobs, passage door knobs, privacy door knobs, and the like.  

If you already have a new door knob, your Tasker will check whether the one you’ve provided is a good fit.

Door knob replacement

After assessing your door and available door knobs, your door knob installation professional can replace your door knob altogether. This involves safely removing all fixtures to prevent any damage inflicted on your door. Replacement steps include:

  • Installing the new latch plate

  • Tapping and screwing the latch into place

  • Inserting the actual door knob

  • Affixing both ends of the knob with screws

Much equipment is required, so be sure to ask your Tasker what tools and materials they already hold.  

Door knob repair

In some cases, you won’t need to replace your door knob altogether. You can hire a Tasker to repair your door knob easily. Your Tasker can help fix door knobs or repair door knob handles that won’t turn. They can also repair broken knob holes or loose knobs or handles. In the case of a broken or damaged lock, though, then you may have to book a mobile locksmith service instead.  

Front door handle replacement

Replacing and upgrading your front door handle is essential in keeping your home safe. If your door knobs show signs of damage, then you must replace them immediately. However, even if your door knobs are in good working order, you can still opt to change them every 7 to 10 years. = 

You can book a Tasker to safely replace the front door handle or knob of your residency. If you’re a storekeeper or a business owner, you can also ask your Tasker to work with a security system installer near you. This way, you can feel assured that your assets and properties are protected with the best technology.  

Screen door handle replacement

A screen door handle can get damaged from overuse, weather, animals, and corrosion. And if you simply leave them be, it can damage the rest of your door. Hiring a Tasker can save you the hassle of changing the door completely. Screen door or storm door handle repair typically includes:

  • Safely removing the interior and external handles

  • Disassembling the spindle and inserting a new one

  • Drilling in and attaching a new handle
