Rekeying the locks of your home can be a simple, inexpensive and highly effective solution for various security concerns. A good professional residential locksmith will be able to check the condition of your locks to be sure they are a fit for rekeying and then alter them in such a way that any old keys will no longer be useful while making you a brand new set of keys. This process gives you the confidence and control of knowing you alone decide who can access the home from now on.

When you rekey a home lock you avoid the added expense of replacing the locks altogether, which should only be done if the locks are too worn out or damaged to be of use anymore. Locks that are still in good condition can last for many more years to come, preventing waste while still keeping your home secure.
Why Rekey a Home Lock?
- Moving into a new home and uncertain of who has old copies of the house key.
- A roommate moves out and takes their key with them but you don’t want them to have continued access to the home.
- The key to your home is lost or stolen so you need a locksmith to come unlock the door anyway. Rekeying at the same time will solve the problem of making a replacement key as well as prevent anyone who ends up with the key from using it.
Another way rekeying your homes locks could be useful is by having your locksmith create a master key system. If you have various locks that accept different keys for different users but want to be able to access all the locks easily yourself, consider a master key.
