Encino CA – House Rekey

Kardo Locksmith had a house rekey project in Encino, CA. The homeowner called for a house rekey as they needed upgraded locks since they converted their garage into an office. We responded to their request for a locksmith Encino quickly as the homeowner was looking for a residential locksmith. We were able to completely rekey the house and garage, and also provided them with more secure locks throughout their home.

When something happens regarding your home, you want to make sure that you are secure. Part of maintaining the security of your home includes updating your locks. Sometimes all you need to do is change your keys to improve your home\\\’s security. Other times, changing the locks is a better option. So how do you know if a house rekey is your best option?

A house rekey is a  less costly option because when you rekey a lock, you just change the lock’s inner mechanism, leaving the external hardware in one piece. You will need a new set of keys to be able to open the newly rekeyed lock leaving the old key useless. When you choose to have a house rekey, a residential locksmith will modify the tumbler and wafer configuring or force a new key exchange and provide you with a new set of keys.

Rekeying your locks can be a quick and simple way to protect your home. With this option, you get to keep your lock’s current hardware. This might be a good option if you lost a key. The process of house rekeying is when a locksmith removes the pins and springs of the lock cylinder and replaces them. This enables a new key to work in the lock and prevents any old key from working. Additionally, when you choose to rekey, the locksmith can check out the condition of the lock and its installation. Your residential locksmith can correct the problems if there are any.

Situations where you should rekey your locks

  • You have locks in your house that require multiple keys

If you want to lighten your keychain and eliminate confusion, rekeying every lock on your house to the same key is the way to go. However, locks on your house should be the same brand or have the same kind of keyholes for you to be able to do this.

  • You recently moved in and want to ensure you’re the only one with working keys

You don’t know who else has a copy of your key. Make sure that it’s just you and your family who has access to your new house by having your locks rekeyed.

  • You lost a key and are worried someone may find it and use it to access your home.
  • You are changing concierge services that have a copy of your house key, like babysitters, housekeepers, or repairmen.
