Frequently Asked Questions
Can you repair my lock, or do you have to replace it?
While repairing a lock may seem like a less expensive option, sometimes there is no choice but to change the locks completely. If none of the internal components have been damaged, it might be possible to repair it, but if the lock is damaged beyond repair, you will need to replace it.
This can be the case when damage results from an external force (such as an attempted burglary or a break-in). Sometimes the locks on well-used doors simply break down over time.
When that happens, the best solution to secure your home is a lock change. No matter what the circumstances, let our locksmiths give you their professional recommendation on whether to repair or replace.
How long will it take to replace my lock?
Because your door is integral to your home security, it's important to make the choice that provides you the best protection.
Of course, it is quicker if you choose the same lock model, because the door is already primed for that installation. If you choose a different model, we may need to make minor changes to your door, which could take just a little bit longer.
A lock change might seem like a big project to you, but it actually is a fairly quick project.
Our locksmiths are highly skilled and experienced, and they have done numerous lock changes for customers like you. Changing a lock can most often be completed in approximately 20 to 30 minutes.
Do I need to change my door if I want to replace my old lock with a smart lock?
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.
Depending upon the type of door and lock you currently have, it might necessary to make small alterations to accommodate the smart lock. Our highly skilled locksmiths can do that for you.

A smart lock might be a great option for you. It's usually an easy switch to change out locks using a smart lock.
