So you’ve just moved into your new home. There’s a lot to do, and a lot to think about. But here’s something you may not have thought about. how many people have had access to the key that currently fits your new home? Realtors, various hired workers, previous owners and those that they gave a key to. Any time a home changes ownership, it is highly recommended that the new owners change the locks or rekey the house to ensure the security of their home. We couldn’t agree more with this recommendation.
With all the other expenses associated with purchasing a new home, you may have thought to yourself, “Maybe I can just do this myself.” Or maybe you have a crafty friend you know that can help you. But before you run out and buy a new set of locks at the home improvement store, we’d like to make the case for trusting your home security to a professional locksmith.
Rekeying is Faster Than Changing the Locks
When we rekey your home, we use your existing locks and change the shape of key that they will accept. It goes by a lot faster and depending on the number of locks you’re replacing it can often be cheaper than replacing all of the locks in your home yourself. Call us when you’re ready to rekey and we’ll be in and out before you know it.
Save Yourself the Time and Stress of Doing it Yourself
There are rekeying kits available at your local hardware store, but a lot of people don’t realize just how cumbersome rekeying their own locks can be. Because we do this so often, it’s a routine operation that we can get done quickly. But if you’re rekeying your locks for the first time, it might take you a while to get acquainted with the process and will take plenty of trial and error to execute properly.
Your time is worth more than the money you might save spending several hours rekeying your own house. Do yourself a favor and let this be one less thing you have to worry about in your new home. Call a professional, and spend your time on more worthwhile pursuits.
Don’t Pay For the Same Work Twice
When you’re looking into rekeying your home you have a few options as to who you hire. Some home improvement stores will offer the service to you. You can even order a kit and do it yourself. But we rekey houses and apartments all the time, and we know a variety of locks inside and out- you won’t get that kind of experience from other sources.
As a new homeowner, you have a lot on your plate. When you’re checking items off your list, you don’t want to keep coming back to- and keep paying for- the same item. Don’t learn the hard way. Hire a professional locksmith the first time and get this important part of your home security done.
