Can you repair my lock, or do you have to replace it?
While repairing a lock may seem like a less expensive option, sometimes there is no choice but to change the locks completely. If none of the internal components have been damaged, it might be possible to repair it, but if the lock is damaged beyond repair, you will need to replace it.
You might be able to replace your lock if there is minimal damage that has not compromised the internal integrity of the lock. However, if your lock has sustained major damage, it must be replaced.
Our locksmiths will be able to give you an answer after they have surveyed the damage.
If the damage to your lock was caused by a burglary, robbery, or other forced entry, you will most likely want a complete lock installation. Another reason for a lock change is serious wear on highly used doors that can limit the efficiency of your lock.
One of our experienced locksmiths should be able to change your lock in about 20 to 30 minutes. It might take more or less time depending upon the type of lock you had and the new lock you want to be installed.
Of course, it is quicker if you choose the same lock model, because the door is already primed for that installation. If you choose a different model, we may need to make minor changes to your door, which could take just a little bit longer.
Will my door be damaged in the process of changing locks?
Definitely not! There is no reason a standard lock change should cause any damage to your door. Our experienced locksmiths take utmost care to protect the integrity of the locks and doors they work on.
Of course, that time may vary according to the exact project specifications, such as what kind of lock is being replaced, and what it is being replaced with.
In most cases, you can replace your traditional lock with a smart lock using the same door. Many of the smart locks available today fit easily into the doors already in place.
Our locksmiths might have to make some small alternations in order for a new smart lock to fit the existing door, but a new door will not be needed – unless you want one!
Depending upon the type of door and lock you currently have, it might necessary to make small alterations to accommodate the smart lock. Our highly skilled locksmiths can do that for you.
Will my door be damaged in a lock change?
If you have reason to think that your lock has been damaged, or if it is not functioning properly, contact us for an assessment. Our locksmiths can identify the problem and advise you whether it can be fixed or if it should be replaced.
Is a smart lock a good choice for my lock change?
It can be sudden or gradual, but you will know if there is a problem.
These types of locks employ combinations and pin pads, rather than relying solely on keys like traditional locks. This provides great flexibility for customers who don't want to carry house keys or those who might have a habit of losing them.
Also, if you happen to forget the combination or pin number, it's easy to reset them.
This can be one less headache for you than if you had to lock installation all the locks in the case of a lost key. Another feature most smart locks have is the ability to also allow for a keyed entry for family members who prefer that option.
How do you know you need a lock change?
Most customers who call us found it obvious something was wrong with their locks.
Either it was damaged during an incident such as a burglary, or their keys no longer opened the door. Please call us as soon as you are alerted to a problem with your lock.
Sometimes we can avoid a more expensive lock change if we get to the problem right away.
If it's possible to repair the lock, we will do so. If there wasn't a forced entry incident that caused the damage, it's likely the lock has worn out over time.
You might not know locks can wear out because of extended use, but it's possible.
Don't simply take for granted that the lock will always work correctly.
Signs your lock is ready for a change
There are incidents will most often necessitate a lock change.
Those include break-ins or attempted burglaries that cause significant damage to your locks. Living with any kind of forced entry is a scary time, so Our skilled and honest representatives will be there to help you feel more secure with a new lock.
If someone used force to break through the lock, it will likely need a complete lock change.
A high-quality lock should not be easy to break. Even if the break-in was not successful (we hope that's the case for you), there can still be internal damage that causes deficiencies.
Also keep in mind that even if you don't see the damage, the lock could fail and leave you locked out of your house.
As a matter of fact, locks that have been compromised are easier to pick and break.
So, if this has happened to you, call us as soon as possible and we'll be there. Another reason to think about changing your locks if when your keys have been lost or stolen.
If a purse or car was stolen with keys in it, that leaves you vulnerable to someone using those keys to enter your home.
