If you move into a new home, lease a new office or change cleaning companies you may find yourself thinking about changing your locks. Even if you do get your keys back from previous owners, occupants, employees or contractors, they have had the opportunity to duplicate your keys. You do not need to replace the entire lock to protect your home or office. Here’s our top 3 reasons you should re-key your lock.

1. Security
Re-keying your home increases the level of security. If you have lost a key or moved into a new home, re-keying will provide security and peace of mind.

2. Save Time and Money
You can try and re-key your locks yourself, but most likely it would take you a long time to do the job. A professional locksmith can get the task done in a matter of minutes, saving you time and making sure your home doesn’t go long without security. Re-keying also usually takes less time than changing the entire lock.
A high quality lock can be quite expensive, while re-keying only requires a few smaller parts, each of which is much more affordable. This means re-keying your locks instead of replacing it will save you a significant amount of money.

3. Get the job done professionally
Another good reason to hire a professional to re-key your locks is the fact that you are unlikely to have all the necessary tools or know where to get the parts you need. Red Circle Locksmiths has the needed parts and tools on hand, and can ensure that they are compatible. This can save you yet more money you would otherwise spend on specific tools that you will almost certainly never use again.
