If you’re like the average homeowner, you probably don’t spend much time thinking about the locks on your doors. In fact, the average homeowner may spend years in their home and never even feel the need to employ a residential locksmith, preferring instead to handle their own lock-related needs or continue to use the current locks that came with the house. However, today on the blog, your friends at A1 Lock and Key LLC are here to explain three reasons you should use our residential locksmith services.
1. A Recent Move
If you’ve recently moved into a newly-built house or just a new-to-you house, there is no way of knowing how many copies of your key are circulating. You may think that if no one has previously lived in your house then you can expect no security issues. However, there is a chance that the contractor or other service personnel kept a master copy before you moved in. The same holds true of a new-to-you home; the previous owners may have made copies for any number of people and never gotten them back. The only way to truly have peace of mind knowing that you have control of the keys to your home is by hiring a reputable locksmith and having your home rekeyed.
2. Single-Key Access
Another great service you can expect from a residential locksmith is single-key access to your home. Instead of carrying multiple keys for different access points in your home, we can rekey each door so that a single key can be used for every door. This will not only make your life easier, but it is actually a safer way to handle your keys as you’ll have fewer keys to keep track of.
3. Broken or Damaged Locks
Finally, if your locks start to show wear and tear, replacing them professionally is a good idea. Whether they are just showing wear from age or have sustained damage from someone trying to break in, a compromised lock is unreliable. While you may feel like you can handle this repair independently, having a professional locksmith handle lock replacements or rekeying is always better. We can offer you the security you deserve in your home.
