Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if we have to replace or repair my lock?
Our highly skilled professional locksmiths are trained to answer that question for you. You might be able to replace your lock if there is minimal damage that has not compromised the internal integrity of the lock.
One of the major incidents requires a lock change is a forced break-in that damages the lock. Other times, the locks on your most commonly used doors can wear down. In both of these situations, a lock change will offer you the best protection.
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?
We pride ourselves on prompt service. The qualified locksmiths at We can usually change a lock in as little as 20 to 30 minutes. The exact time depends upon the lock that was damaged and the lock you want to install.
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 a lock change?
Almost never. The qualified locksmiths have the highest standards and work carefully to make sure your door maintains its current condition.
Is a smart lock a good choice for my lock change?
A smart lock might be a great option for you. It's usually an easy switch to change out locks using a smart lock. These types of locks employ combinations and pin pads, rather than relying solely on keys like traditional locks.
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.
How do I know it's time to replace or change my lock?
Most customers who call us found it obvious something was wrong with their locks. Either it was damaged during an incident such as a burglary, or their keys no longer opened the door.
Please call us as soon as you are alerted to a problem with your lock. Sometimes we can avoid a more expensive lock change if we get to the problem right away. If it's possible to repair the lock, we will do so.
If there wasn't a forced entry incident that caused the damage, it's likely the lock has worn out over time. You might not know locks can wear out because of extended use, but it's possible. We are happy to assess your lock and determine what can be done to repair or replace it.
