Kardo Locksmith had a house rekey project in La Canada Flintridge 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 La Canada Flintridge 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.
It is a wise decision for the homeowner to choose a house rekey because it is way 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. By doing this, people with the old key won’t be able to access the lock.
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! 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
Rekeying a lock - 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.
Replacing a lock - 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.
Though it may sound complicated, rekeying is actually just a simple method to guarantee your safety. Inside different types of locks, the residential locksmith will just need to handle the little tumblers or what they call key pins. There are various lengths of key pins in a series which makes a key access the lock. Once all the key pins line up when a particular key is inserted in the lock, then the key functions to turn and open the lock. To make it simple, rekeying a lock means opening it up and reordering or replacing the key pins.
