Rekeying or Replacing Locks

Homeowners may become confused when it comes to Rekeying or replacing locks. It is important to weigh the pros and cons of each type of service before making a final choice. GreenPro Locksmith offers a reliable and cost effect rekeying and lock replacement services with 100% guaranty.

The pros and cons of Rekeying locks

Rekeying a lock simply means to adjust the internal working mechanism of a lock, in such a way that it will function with a new key. This type of service means you can keep your old lock while using new keys, which also means that old keys will no longer work with the old lock. Rekeying can be difficult to handle because you must focus solely on the cylinders before the pins are rearranged or changed. 

One of the main advantages of rekeying is the increased sense of security. Changing the internal mechanism of an existing lock will give you 100% control of the lock and previous homeowners or intruders can no longer have access with their keys. Rekeying is more cost-effective because only the pins inside the lock cylinder are changed and you wouldn’t have to buy new locksets. 

The main disadvantage of rekeying is that it comes with limited security upgrades but that does not mean it wouldn’t improve the security of your home. Since the pins are the only features you must change in the lock, other security features remain intact. Please contact GreenPro Locksmith if you want to rekey an existing lock in your home or office. 

The pros and cons of lock replacement

With lock replacement, you will be using an entirely new and different lock. When you are replacing a lock, you need to be aware of the type of lock you are replacing the existing one with, it pays to consult with a certified and licensed locksmith technician for more advice on the most suitable replacement lock depending on your situation. 

The customization of your security is the primary advantage of locks replacement. Customization in this situation means you can decide how your lock looks, feel or even connect with other security devices. With a new lock, you can install additional security pins.  Another benefit of lock replacement is that there are more opportunities for upgrades. If you consider replacing your lock instead of rekeying, you have the chance to perform some upgrades on the lock. If you have a grade 2 deadbolt on your door before, you can easily upgrade to a grade 1 deadbolt by replacing the lock. You can even replace traditional locks with the new modern smart locks that are more efficient and more secured. 

The main disadvantage of replacing locks is that it is more expensive than rekeying. The cost of new and modern lockset alone can be more expensive, and that cost will quickly go up when you add the cost of labor. To save money on both rekeying and lock replacement, please contact GreenPro Locksmith. We offer a cost-saving lock rekeying and replacement services that is very reliable.
