When Should Locks Be Rekeyed On a Home?

Rekeying is changing the inside of a lock so that it responds to a new key and the old key no longer works. A professional locksmith can rekey locks or essentially reprogram a lock to keep your business or home safe from intruders. Rekeying locks is quicker and more affordable than installing new lock hardware.

When Should You Rekey Your Locks?

1. If your keychain is bulky and heavy because you have a different key for each door or lock in the house, we can program the locks so that one key fits all. Having one key takes away the inconvenience of fumbling with your keys every time you come home.

2. When you move into your new home, make sure you have it rekeyed. You don’t know how many copies of the current key are currently floating around with the previous owners, their friends, family or even neighbors. So give yourself a fresh start with a new set of keys on all your entry points.

3. If you’ve had home remodeling done and have given out copies of the key to contractors so that they could get in and out while you were at work, not only should they return the key but you should also consider rekeying the locks.

4. If you or someone in your household has lost a set of keys and you don’t know whose hands they’ve landed in, rekeying can give you the peace of mind that you need to feel safe from intruders.
