For those who do not know, a lock rekey is a process that a trained locksmith goes through. For the new or old lock on your door, it can change the key that works it to a new and different key. Replacement of your lock or locks is usually not necessary. Only if the lock is badly worn and almost impossible to rekey due to excessive wear and tear should it be replaced.
If not too badly worn an old lock can usually be rekeyed just as a new one can. If it is an old mortise style of lock, usually associated with an old style of door, we most likely can rekey it. Another option is to have us install a newer style of lock like a deadbolt on your door. A modern deadbolt can usually offer much more protection of your property than an old style mortise lock.
There are many reasons that a property owner may require a lock rekey. Perhaps you recently bought a new or newly built house or townhouse. So you want to be sure that no one else can unlock your door because they have a key. A lock rekey will fix that issue for you. Anyone holding a key will find that it no longer works when we are done rekeying your lock.
