Kardo Locksmith had a house rekey project in Hollywood, 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 Hollywood 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 rekey or a lock replacement is your best option? Read on to see the difference between the two.
Changing your locks for new hardware and keys is the most costly way to go, and to have it done correctly, it’s best to hire a professional locksmith who knows what to do and who can suggest what the best locks are for your home. If your existing locks are wearing out, changing your locks is recommended if you want to upgrade to a more efficient and more robust lock. It is also a must to change your locks if your home has had an attempted break-in.
Situations where you should change your locks
• You want to upgrade or change the look of your lock
• You have a traditional deadbolt and want to switch to a modern lock system
• Your locks are different brands and types, and you want them all to work with the same key
• You have a low-quality or older lock
• It’s falling apart or rusty
A less costly option is to have your locks rekeyed 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 rekey your locks, 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.
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.
