Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if we have to replace or repair my lock?
Our highly skilled professional locksmiths are trained to answer that question for you. You might be able to replace your lock if there is minimal damage that has not compromised the internal integrity of the lock.
However, if your lock has sustained major damage, it must be replaced. Our locksmiths will be able to give you an answer after they have surveyed the damage.
If the damage to your lock was caused by a burglary, robbery, or other forced entry, you will most likely want a complete lock replacement. Another reason for a lock change is serious wear on highly used doors that can limit the efficiency of your lock. Because your door is integral to your home security, it's important to make the choice that provides you the best protection.
How long will it take to replace my lock?
We pride ourselves on prompt service. The qualified locksmiths at We can usually change a lock in as little as 20 to 30 minutes. The exact time depends upon the lock that was damaged and the lock you want to install.
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. If you want to change the kind of lock you use, it could take a little more time. But not to worry, our locksmiths can easily make the minor alterations required to accommodate the new lock of your choice.
Will my door be damaged in the process of changing locks?
Almost never. The qualified locksmiths have the highest standards and work carefully to make sure your door maintains its current condition.
Do I need to change my door if I want to replace my old lock with a smart lock?
A smart lock might be a great option for you. It's usually an easy switch to change out locks using a smart lock. These types of locks employ combinations and pin pads, rather than relying solely on keys like traditional locks.
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.
How do I know it's time to replace or change my lock?
