How do I know if we have to replace or repair my lock?
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.
This can be the case when damage results from an external force (such as an attempted burglary or a break-in). Sometimes the locks on well-used doors simply break down over time. When that happens, the best solution to secure your home is a lock change.

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.
It will take much less time if you decide to simply swap out the old lock with the same model. The door is already adjusted for that kind of lock, so it's a quick installation process.

But not to worry, our locksmiths can easily make the minor alterations required to accommodate the new lock of your choice.
Will a lock change damage my door?

Do I need to change my door if I want to replace my old lock with a smart lock?
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.
