Need to replace or repair your locks?

Door hardware and locks have a life cycle and, depending upon the type, grade and application, may need to be replaced. Sometimes the lock can be repaired, but it is often more cost effective to replace then to repair. Any repair will be temporary, anyway, because the equipment is older and wearing out. Replacing with new locks will guarantee you a much longer period of security for you and your family. You may even want to take the opportunity to upgrade the locks you’ve had for more high security locks.

Another advantage to replacing locks is that any keys you may have given to friends, family, or workers will no longer work. Your local, professional locksmith will make you at little or no cost as many copies of the new keys as you need and you no longer have to worry about who has access to your home.

Your locksmith can give you a basic estimate over the phone when you call to make the appointment. When he arrives and has a chance to look at the actual hardware and the condition it’s in, he can give you an estimate closer to the actual price. Even after he assesses the job, however, things can come up that might change that estimate. Problems can show up once a piece of door hardware has been removed.

Any warranty for the lock that isn’t working will be invalid if you’ve had someone who is not licensed or experienced working on it before you called a locksmith. Parts may be broken or lost. The same is true if you had someone without the proper knowledge install the lock for you. Take a look at the mechanism here:
