Residential Lock Replacement Service

Imagine this situation, you've just moved into a new house and discovered that the locks are outdated and don't meet your security needs. This is not only frustrating, but it can be a real security risk to have old or outdated locks on your home.

When is it time to replace your locks at home?


There a couple of dead-set signs the locks in your home are due to be updated. The first one being if you know the locks in your home are old and outdated. Similarly if the locks are beginning to fail, maybe you've had them repaired once already but once again they are frequently jamming. You've recently experienced a break in or attempted break in at home. Or quite simply, you've lost your keys. Any or all of these things will point to it being time to replace your locks.


Your locks are old or outdated


Quite often people will purchase a beautiful old home, but it also comes fitted with old locks. Whilst they may look very stately, it's likely the security value these old locks provide to your new home have diminished. Get them replaced with newer, high security locks and keep your new property safe and secure.


The locks are becoming temperamental


As with the above issue of old outdated locks, the locks can sometimes reach a state where no matter how many times you repair them the same problem keeps reoccurring. At this point it's better, and cheaper to just have the locks replaced entirely.


You've experienced a break-in


If you've experienced a break in or attempted break in at home, it's wise to have the locks replaced. In many cases an unsuccessful burglary will still have caused some damage to your locks whilst trying to gain access to your home. Of course if there has been a break in, you'll sleep much easier at night if you change out those locks.


You've lost your keys


Now, you can have locks rekeyed. However, for various reasons home owners sometimes prefer to just get the locks replaced. The option is totally up to you.
