Cost of locks
If a lock change is required, it would most probably be possible to estimate the cost over the phone. If you can see the lock, we may ask you for few details such as the lock brand and type to give you as accurate quote as possible. In addition to the cost, we will give an estimate of the time required for a technician to arrive and for the job to be completed. We recommend that you use only insurance-approved BS3621 locks for a lock change of mortice or Sash locks on front house doors. Locks for indoor use can have different levels of security.
You Might Need a Lock Change
You may already require a lock change. It’s all-too-common for locks to not have been properly installed, or for locks to be fitted for the wrong security purpose. Many builders, handymen, and unprofessional locksmiths skimp on this area, with incorrectly-installed locks deserving a place at the top of a deficiency list for home owners. You shouldn’t jeopardise your security because some tradesman made greater cost savings than he deserved. Use a proper locksmith to handle your locks and security matters.
Re-key and Master key
Inside locks are small pins, levers or wafers, which are depressed to the correct level or position by an appropriate key. If the pins or levers are damaged and begin to show signs of wear or do not function properly, the old key will have difficulties operating them and hence would make opening the lock a source of regular hassle: this is when a new key or a lock change are necessary. Making a new key for an existing lock is known as re-keying. Re-keying can be a cheaper solution than replacing your lock with a new one, though it’s generally used when you already have a lock with the same key or have the need for a lock in a master key system to be changed. (E.g. this would be preferable for a landlord who had a hundred locks to deal with).
