Can you repair my lock, or do you have to replace it?
Our highly skilled professional locksmiths are trained to answer that question for you. You might be able to replace your lock if there is minimal damage that has not compromised the internal integrity of the lock.
This can be the case when damage results from an external force (such as an attempted burglary or a break-in). Sometimes the locks on well-used doors simply break down over time. When that happens, the best solution to secure your home is a lock change.
No matter what the circumstances, let our locksmiths give you their professional recommendation on whether to repair or replace.
How long will it take to replace my lock?
A lock change might seem like a big project to you, but it actually is a fairly quick project. Our locksmiths are highly skilled and experienced, and they have done numerous lock changes for customers like you. Changing a lock can most often be completed in approximately 20 to 30 minutes. 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.
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?
There should be no damage to your door from this process. The highly skilled professional locksmiths take great care to ensure your door looks just like it did when we leave.
Is a smart lock a good choice for my lock change?

We might have to make some slight changes to your door, but you should not need a new door to go with a smart lock.

One of the best ways to ensure the security of your home and belongings is a trustworthy lock. If you have any reason to believe the lock has been compromised, call us for a professional opinion.
There are some warning signs that might help you avoid a lock replacement and allow for repair. Pay attention to locks that look rusty or keys that don't seem to work anymore in the lock. Especially when it is cold outside, locks sometimes show their deficits. You don't want to end up locked out on one of those cold nights, so be sure to consult us to see if we can repair your lock.
We recommend homeowners prioritize maintaining their locks. Don't simply take for granted that the lock will always work correctly. Rather, take steps to ensure that it does. Our locksmiths can help with maintenance and repairs before you get to the point of needing a lock change.
We encourage customers to err on the side of caution and replace locks in cases like this. You do not want to open yourself up to a potential crime if you can simply replace the lock and put your mind at ease.
If you watch for warning signs, you might be able to avoid a lock replacement. Be attentive to things like rusted locks. Another thing to pay attention to when you find yourself struggling to unlock or lock your door, even when you are using the correct key. This is sometimes more apparent on cold nights. In that case, you need to service, repair, or replace your lock right away so you don't run the risk of locking yourself out.
If you have been the unfortunate victim of a break-in or a robbery, you will definitely want to replace the locks on the doors of your home. There is no bigger wake-up call for homeowners that something must be done with their locks.
If someone broke in, it shows the locks were not strong enough to stop a burglary of your home. And if criminals were able to bypass the locks, they are likely significantly damaged. If someone forced your door open your locks are now probably damaged beyond repair.
The force that must be used to break in a locked door usually damages the internal mechanics of a lock or the lock itself. A damaged lock puts you at a higher risk of being victimized again. Also, mechanical failures as a result of a break-in could result in malfunctions that could leave you locked out of your own home.
We also suggest you maintain your locks or hire us to help you with that task. Proper maintenance can extend the life of your lock and make sure it remains in good working order. Making sure your locks and doors are solid is one of the best things you can do as a homeowner to protect your home and family.
Even with proper maintenance, a lock can fail. In most cases, that will require a lock replacement.
Smart lock options for a lock change
Many people like the ease and efficiency of smart locks that use combinations and pin pads instead of keys. If you or someone in your family tend to misplace their keys, this could be a great choice for you. If you ever have trouble remember the secret codes, they can be reset. That's a lot easier than having to rekey locks.
Most of these locks also have an option that allows you to open the door with the key in case you forget the combination or identification number. You can also have the option to change your combination if you think it has been compromised, rather than having to rekey the lock.
