Door Lock Replacement Rockville, MD

Project Description

A homeowner in Rockville, MD, contacted MacArthur Locks & Doors for a lock service. They had just moved into their new apartment and did not feel confident with the existing locks in place. We replaced the front door locks with a heavy-duty entry door handle and deadbolt lock set. In addition, we rekeyed the locks on the back door to save them the expense of purchasing new ones. After the door lock replacement and rekey, the client felt safer at home. They were appreciative of our quick response to their service request. 

Keeping your house safe and secure is critical, so you must update your locks, especially after moving into a new residence. However, while a new lock installation is a wise move, it is often expensive. So, is there another good alternative to installation?

Rekeying Existing Locks

If you need to enhance the security of existing locks, rekeying them is a less expensive alternative. Rather than purchasing new locks and having them fitted, you may call an expert locksmith to rekey your existing locks and make new keys. 

Benefits of Rekeying Locks

There are many benefits to rekeying your locks instead of changing them altogether. For starters, it is usually more affordable to rekey locks. Additionally, rekeying locks is often a quicker process than changing locks. Another benefit of rekeying your locks is that it allows you to maintain the same lock mechanism. That can be helpful when you have multiple locks that use different keys but are of the same brand or have the same type of keyhole.

When to Rekey Locks

Lost Key

Losing a key can be problematic as someone may find it and access your home. You can rekey your locks in this case, so the old key no longer works. 

Moving In

Rekeying your locks is also a good idea when you move into a new home. After all, you do not know how many copies of the keys were made by the previous owner. Rekeying locks guarantees that no one but you and your family has keys to the doors.

When to Change Locks

Home Improvement

Changing door hardware can be a cost-effective way to change the look of your home. The best way to tie your home's design together is by choosing a door handle and lock that complement the rest of your home's hardware.

Upgrading to a Modern Lock System

Upgrading an outdated or otherwise subpar lock system to a high-tech one is a good reason for changing locks. Change your old locks whenever you want to take home security to the next level with electronic locks.

Compromised Lock

A broken or damaged lock may not even function as it should. Therefore, it is better to go for a new lock or consult a professional DC locksmith to change your lock if you think it is compromised. 

Subpar or Older Lock

When your keys get stuck, and you have tried lubricating the hardware to no avail, it may be time to invest in a new set. Among the major signs that your keys need replacing are rust spots or broken or chipped pieces.
