FRONT DOOR HARDWARE REPLACEMENT IS A PAIN!
Replacing front door hardware is a pain in the butt–seriously. I went to Hardware Designs in Fairfield, NJ. I took the 5 dollar tour of door hardware there, and was absolutely amazed and not to mention depressed by all the stuff I could have done had my builder given me the options in advance. Hardware Designs gave me a form to fill in with my builder, which settled what was doable. I had to answer 10 zillion questions about hole location, door thickness, door composition, backset nonsense, etc etc but once all that was done, I was able to make a selection. The Hardware Designs folk have their @#$%^&* together, far more than my builder and designer did. They have all the brands and then some. You will be doing yourself a favor by checking them out! Go to their website and simply click on door hardware and away you go. Have some patience, and a glass of wine with you, it will help! You can email them at firstname.lastname@example.org or go to the web site and have a good time. www.hardware-designs.com
