When it comes to having a lock rekey completed, the process is not as difficult as one may think, at least it is not difficult for an experienced locksmith. Essentially, rekeying a lock simply involves adjusting the lock so that the lock still works, but it will need a new key in order to open.
A lock rekey is a cost effective option that many homeowners do not even know about. A lock rekey is cheaper than having all of the locks on your doors replaced. If your locks are in good shape, rekeying the locks is a much better option than changing all of the locks. A lock rekey will let you keep the same basic components of the lock, but it will now take a different key in order to open it.
There are many reasons to consider rekeying the locks of a home. Often times a homeowner will want a single key to use for every door. This is convenient for the homeowner and a simple rekeying of all of the locks in the home can easily make this happen.
