When should you change your locks?

  1. You want your locks to be a different color or design. For example, if you moved into a new home and the locks are old, outdated, and rusted, you may want to get a new; nicer looking locks.
  2. When you want to upgrade your security and change your locks to high security locks or electronic locks.
  3. If you have locks of different brands throughout your house and you want them all to work on the same key, you will need to change some locks so that all your locks will be of the same brand (or have the same type of keyway), only then you can re-key them all to one key.
  4. In cases where you have one or more locks installed but don’t have the key for all of them, you will need to compare the price of a new lock versus rekeying them without a key (which requires extra labor) and make an informed decision as to what is more cost effective.
