Kardo Locksmith had a house and home office rekey, lock replacement, and security locks project in Hollywood, CA. The homeowner called for a locksmith as they wanted to upgrade their locks for their house and home office. We quickly responded to their request for a locksmith Hollywood as the homeowner was looking for a residential locksmith. We rekeyed the house entirely and provided them with new secure locks throughout their home office.
Experts will recommend that you replace your locks on a regular basis, but this could be expensive and time-consuming. It is a wise decision for a homeowner to choose a house rekey because it is too costly to go through a complete lock replacement. A house rekey is a less expensive option that can reset rekeyable locks once you need to upgrade your lock security. Instead of buying a new lock and having it placed into the old one, you can just call a residential locksmith to rekey your locks in order to accept a new key.
Should you get a rekey?
• If you've just moved into a home, it is a great idea to get a rekey. It is impossible to know to whom the previous owners gave a key. A rekey can erase that unease and cost-effectively increase security.
• If it has been a long time since you've moved in, it's a great idea to get new keys for your home or upgrade your locks! It can be hard to keep track of who has a key over the years. Increase your home's security with a rekey.
• If your locks are as old as the house, rekeying them can help the key fit in the lock better and turn more easily, and a locksmith can tell you if a lock needs to be replaced, rather than just rekeyed.
The difference between rekeying & replacing a lock
Lock Rekeying - means the pins inside of the locking mechanism need to be changed out and a new key created. This is a less time-consuming process, and the door's handle and lock remain the same.
Lock Replacement - means removing the entire lock and handle mechanism and replacing it with one that is brand new. This can be a more expensive and time-consuming process.
