Changing the handlesets for all of the doors around your home doesn’t need to be complicated. Even when you are at a loss for what to do next, rest assured that you can lean on the expertise of the team here at WalterWorks Hardware to answer all of your questions about this home improvement project. What do you need to know? Let’s find out together!

Using the Handlesets

If you are looking to secure your home, then deadbolts might be the answer you are searching for; why then, should you consider using handlesets? There are plenty of valid reasons for choosing to do this. They can help your front door look more stylish. When you are looking to improve curb appeal, this is an easy way to make a change without being too flashy. Also, they function much like deadbolts and can offer the same amount of security that deadbolts can. 

Sold Separately 

Something you should note, however, is that the interior and exterior components of handlesets are often sold separately. The reason for this is so that you can choose to customize them if you wish. This process will need advice and help from professionals, so you don’t accidentally compromise the integrity of your new handlesets. Plus, this way, you can choose different finishes for both sides of the door and create a unique, eye-catching look. 

Questions of Spacing

Achieving the right aesthetics can still be tricky. After all, you don’t want the handlesets you install to look too crowded or cluttered. That’s why it’s worth it to consider some questions about proper spacing. Look at the top and bottom boreholes more closely. Ideally, the gap between them should be about 5 ½” inches, but this rule of thumb only applies to boreholes of a specific size – say, if they are 2 ⅛”  for example. Always check the template to make sure that you don’t do something you’re not supposed to – this another reason to consult the experts.

Tools That You Need

Finally, let’s talk about some of the tools that are needed for this project to succeed. For instance, you will need a trusty screwdriver, tape measures, pencils, and a drill. If you are unable to procure all of the items that you need, then it could be a sign that you can bring this project to the professionals, and they can handle it for you.
