Hardware by Hardlines

When it comes to door hardware, there are so many more choices, decisions and options than you might think. Believe it or not, this is one of the most detail- and decision-intensive processes we help lead our clients through.
These considerations include the type of lock and how doors will close, how controlled access should be handled and how safety precautions for things like a fire should be prepared for. Aesthetic choices like the color of the metal or finish are, of course, always a big consideration for our clients. Given our work on historic architecture, we often help our clients determine if some of that original hardware can be utilized or left in place as a decorative item, leaving as much of that original character as possible. Each of these choices also hinges upon availability (pun intended!), cost and ultimately how the contractor bids the work and who their manufacturers are. It is our job to make this process as seamless as possible, ensuring that our clients ultimately end up with the right recommendations for their project!
