Reasons for lock replacement
1. New property
One of the most common reasons for a lock change is when a property is first purchased. Many new homeowners want to ensure that they are the only ones who have access to their home, and a lock change is a quick and easy way to accomplish this. For example, if you’ve just purchased a home or office, you may want to have the locks changed as soon as possible to prevent any previous owners or tenants from being able to access your property.
2. Tenant move-out
Another common reason for a lock change is when a tenant moves out of a rental property. Landlords often want to change the locks between tenants to ensure that only authorized individuals have access to the property. This can be especially important if the previous tenant is suspected of having made copies of their keys or if they had a history of doubtful guests.
3. Security improvement
In addition to protecting your property, a lock change can also be a good way to improve your overall security. Many older locks may be outdated and vulnerable to picking or bumping, which can make it easy for intruders to gain access to your home or business. By upgrading your locks to newer, more secure models, you can significantly reduce the risk of a break-in.
4. Technical problems
Sometimes the lock simply stops working due to worn or broken components. In this case, some customers choose to repair the lock and some choose to replace it with a new one. It all depends on many factors – type of lock, cost of components and work, available budget, etc.
5. Lost or stolen keys
If you just broke your key, most often the best solution is to make a duplicate. But in cases where you don’t know where you left your key or know that someone has stolen it, it’s recommended to change the lock or at least make a rekeying.

Locks types we change
There are many different types of locks available for replacement, including traditional mechanical, electronic and smart locks. Each type has its pros and cons, so it’s important to consider your specific needs and budget when choosing a lock for your property.
1. Traditional locks
For example, traditional mechanical models are often the most affordable option and are relatively easy to install. However, they can be vulnerable to picking and bumping, which can make them less secure than other types of locks.
2. Electronic locks
Electronic locks can be more secure than mechanical ones, as they use electronic codes or keycards to grant access. This can make them more difficult for intruders to bypass and can also provide a convenient way for homeowners and landlords to grant and revoke access to their property. However, electronic locks can be more expensive than mechanical models and may require more maintenance.
3. Smart systems
Smart locks are another popular option that offer many benefits over traditional models. These locks can be controlled remotely via a smartphone app, allowing you to grant or revoke access to your property from anywhere. They can also be integrated with other smart home devices, such as security cameras and alarms, to provide a comprehensive security solution. However, smart systems can be more expensive than traditional locks and may require a more complex installation process.
If you’re having difficulty choosing a lock that fits your needs and budget, just give us a call. We will be happy to help you choose the best option, and then install it with a warranty on the work done and components used.
