Question DetailsAsked on 6/12/2011

contractors for mobile homes?

Such as door replacement. Sliding patio door fix, and/or lock replacements. I have both those, plus many many more. And can find no one to help. I live South of Dallas/Ft Worth TX. Angie's List for locksmiths, for example, show they don't serve Ellis County or just don't say one way or other. So I will have to call a bunch to find out. And then, will they fix mobile home locks? You say what's the difference between mobile home locks and regular houses? BIG! I can't go to Home Depot, Lowes or Ace Hardware - the stuff is different. And you can't get parts. You must buy the whole kit and caboodle. which I did and it didn't fit. Took it back, got refund; but still don't have it fixed. I found a replacement door and it';s 60 miles away and I'll have to get it myself, and it costs $300 and up. Same thing in Home Depot for regular house is $150. Can anybody help me?

okay, enlighten me. What is different about mobile home locks? How thick is the door, for example? I believe some things are "downsized" for mobile homes like water heaters, furnaces, etc., but what is so different about door locks and faucets? ( my sister-in-law claims she can't get her bathroom faucet fixed. Well, dammit, replace it! They're all on four inch centers, right?) Anyhow, you're online; do a search for mobile home parts and supplies. The trailer must have a nameplate; contact the manufacturer!
