Lock Change (Re-Keying)

About Our Service
Did you know that you may replace the key to your house without needing to buy a new lock? Lock rekeying is a quick and uncomplicated way to secure your household or business.

Re-keying? What's that?
Lock rekeying (AKA "Lock Change") is the process of changing the key combination on your lock so that only a new key can open it. Rekeying your locks every few years is recommended by some experts. However, there are several situations when rekeying your lock is really a smart move:

- When you've misplaced your key.
- When there have been too many people who have had access to your key in the past.
- When you've just broken up with someone or someone has moved out.
- When you're relocating to a new residence.

In general, each time the keys have been out of your possession for an extended period of time, you should consider lock rekeying. Remember that making as many copies of your key as you want takes less than half an hour, and a "do not copy" warning seldom deters people. The more persons who have previously had access to your key, the more you should consider rekeying.

Why would you want to Rekey your door?
While changing a lock has its benefits, in most cases, lock rekeying is the better option. The following are some of the reasons why lock rekeying is such a beneficial option:

It's a lot less expensive than getting a new lock. Instead of acquiring new locks, all that is required is the replacement of a few pins.
You will be allowed to retain your locks. Keeping your locks is advantageous not just because it is a far less costly alternative, but also because your locks are likely to fit your property. When you need to change your locks, there's a chance that you won't be able to find any that fit the style you desire for your house.
You have complete control over how they are set up. You may also set it such that all of the locks function with one of your current keys. Rekeying your locks can provide you with more convenience.

Lock rekeying, despite its name, enables you to maintain your lock and only alter the code, ensuring that only you and those who reside in your house have access to it. We provide both planned and emergency lock rekeying services at Faster Locksmith.

A quick look in to the question we are constantly asked.
You should get a professional locksmith to replace your lock because locksmiths have the skills and tools that the average person doesn’t own. Just because you have the tools doesn’t mean you are equipped to do a task that involves opening a lock or changing the key. For one thing, most people don’t own lock-picking sets or specialized tools like what a locksmith would have. These are tools that would give you access to a lot of safes and doors without having to damage them in any way.
A locksmith is a person who repairs or installs locks, and that's maily what we do. However, we are often called to provide other services as well, such as installing deadbolts, repairing broken keys, and providing security advice. The most common services that a locksmith provides are lock installation, lock repair, key duplication and key replacement. As a company, we expand upon the latter and also deal with other not-so-common household annoyances like garage door repair and installation, electric openers, patio sliding doors, emergency locksmith services, and many others
The fact that we’re not fast, but faster is certainly one of them, but there are also many more. Some of the benefits that we can provide you with include:
- We provide customer satisfaction through efficient customer service, fast and pleasant techs, fair prices, and quality locks and keys.
- Top quality products that we use. We keep abreast of the latest developments in the industry to make sure your home is fortified with the latest security products and that your locks are of the best quality.
- You get courtesy, reliable, and trustworthy service at all times.
In most cases, the best route is to swap out your old set of locks altogether. Older locks were typically made with a variety of simplistically cobbled together devices and even today, a great deal of shoddy craftsmanship is still seen. The best locksmiths in the industry will always direct you towards picking up a new set of locks and that’s because a trained professional is able to not only replace the parts that are broken, but make sure to outfit you with high end parts that will ensure you’re getting a much more secure locking solution that will last for well beyond the of your current doors.

Some situations, however, do allow for a repair instead of a replacement, but most of the times require from specialized equipment not generally available in the household.
