New Home – New Keys

When you purchase a new house, there are so many things that need your immediate attention – you may forget to address your new homes security. Security should be your first concerns. If your locks haven’t been changed and the previous owner and anyone they may have given keys to could easily access your home uninvited. Over half of new home owners do not change or re-key their locks and it’s difficult to understand why. It’s a simple, quick and affordable process.

If you want to feel confident with your new home’s security, you have two options:
1. Changing your locks
2. Re-keying your locks

Replacing your locks is the more expensive, invasive and complicated of the two options. The entire lock will need to be removed and replaced with another model. This option is recommended if you do not feel the current lock is reliable or if you would like to upgrade to stronger, more efficient locks.

If you are pleased with your home’s locks but are unsure if extra copies of your keys are in circulation, you have the simpler option of re-keying to shore up your homes security. When a lock is re-keyed the internal mechanism of the lock is changed so that it can be operated by a new key, making the old key invalid. This is done by done by disassembling the lock, pulling the pins that matched the original key and replacing them with pins that work with the new key the locksmith cuts and provides you as the new homeowner.
