One of the most common service requests we get at Local Locksmith Now is replacing home locks, but that's not the only available option. Rekeying is a lesser known alternative that both saves you money and can still give you a security boost.
If you're considering replacing your locks, but are interested in rekeying, here are some points to consider:
- Rekeying means that you keep your current lock, but the old set of keys no longer operates in it.
- It's inexpensive because you don't need to pay for new parts.
- You'll keep your old lock, which means the security of the lock itself doesn't increase.
If you recently lost a set of keys and are concerned about your home's security, or you recently moved to a new home and want to rest assured that there are no unknown copies of your keys, then rekeying is the perfect option for you. If you're not pleased with the current design, condition, or brand of your locks, or you want to take advantage of a new form of lock technology, then replacement is the way to go.
If you're planning on either replacing or rekeying, call Local Locksmith Now for a free estimate!
