Your effort will ensure the safety and well-being of your family, home and property.

What Is Lock Rekeying?

So what does it actually mean to rekey something? This basically means to change the pins in an existing lock and create a new key for it because after the pins are changed the old key will no longer work. It is the service of choice when your locks are not broken, but rather simply want a new key to work your locks.

Why Should you Rekey Locks?

You may think that you’ve only given keys to family members and trusted employees, but do you know everyone who has access to their keys? Vandals, thieves, and other home invaders look for easy access to your home. If they can steal or copy a key, they will. House keys are simple to steal or copy. Rekey your locks regularly to increase your safety and protection.

When Should you Rekey Locks?

You’ll want to rekey the locks after someone uses a key to gain unlawful entry into your home. However, you will also want to rekey the locks after you change housekeepers, pet sitters, babysitters, contractors or groundskeepers and after your roommate moves out. Rekey the locks any time your keys or an employee’s keys are stolen or lost, too.

Rekeying locks is important for new homes in Richmond Virginia, too. Realtors, contractors, groundskeepers and interior designers have access to your new home during the construction phase. For maximum security, rekey all the locks as soon as you sign papers for your new house, garage or shed.
