Frequently Asked Questions
Why do we have to replace my lock instead of repairing it?
While repairing a lock may seem like a less expensive option, sometimes there is no choice but to change the locks completely. If none of the internal components have been damaged, it might be possible to repair it, but if the lock is damaged beyond repair, you will need to replace it.
However, if your lock has sustained major damage, it must be replaced. Our locksmiths will be able to give you an answer after they have surveyed the damage.
If the damage to your lock was caused by a burglary, robbery, or other forced entry, you will most likely want a complete lock replacement. Another reason for a lock change is serious wear on highly used doors that can limit the efficiency of your lock. Because your door is integral to your home security, it's important to make the choice that provides you the best protection.
How long will this lock replacement take?
A lock change might seem like a big project to you, but it actually is a fairly quick project. Our locksmiths are highly skilled and experienced, and they have done numerous lock changes for customers like you. Changing a lock can most often be completed in approximately 20 to 30 minutes. Of course, that time may vary according to the exact project specifications, such as what kind of lock is being replaced, and what it is being replaced with.
Of course, it is quicker if you choose the same lock model, because the door is already primed for that installation. If you choose a different model, we may need to make minor changes to your door, which could take just a little bit longer.
Will my door be damaged in the process of changing locks?
Almost never. The qualified locksmiths have the highest standards and work carefully to make sure your door maintains its current condition.
Can I replace my old lock with a smart lock on the same door?
In most cases, you can replace your traditional lock with a smart lock using the same door. Many of the smart locks available today fit easily into the doors already in place. Our locksmiths might have to make some small alternations in order for a new smart lock to fit the existing door, but a new door will not be needed – unless you want one!
This provides great flexibility for customers who don't want to carry house keys or those who might have a habit of losing them. Also, if you happen to forget the combination or pin number, it's easy to reset them. This can be one less headache for you than if you had to rekey all the locks in the case of a lost key. Another feature most smart locks have is the ability to also allow for a keyed entry for family members who prefer that option.
