Locks Installation Service

The general advice is that whenever you move into a new place you should change the locks. This is not an indictment of the previous tenants; it is just that you do not know who might still have a key to your house. Keys change hands frequently and it is very easy for them to end up with the wrong person.

In this same vein, it is also a good idea to replace your locks every so often even if you have not moved. This will provide you with additional security and ensure that you have more control over who enters yours home. This guide will explain the different types of locks out there so that you can have a better understanding of the different options out there. There are a variety of reasons why you might want to change locks including:

  • Convenience
  • Security
  • General Home Maintenance
  • Updating to match new trends

 

Types of Locks

There are a variety of locks out there that can match a diversity of needs. Whether you are trying to update your entire house, get back in quickly after a home lock-out or increase your home’s safety, we can help you. The first thing we can do is help you assess your need to see what lock best fits your needs. Some of the different types of locks we work with include:  

  • Deadbolts
  • Mortise Deadlocks
  • High-Tech Options

 

Deadbolt Locks

electronic deadbolt lock

Most people are probably familiar with these. They can be found on the majority of homes, hotel rooms and apartments. The majority of locksmiths agree that when trying to secure your home, you need some sort of deadbolt system because they are much harder to break open that standard door knob based locks. Quality manufacturers of these locks include:

  • Weslock
  • Gatehouse
  • Masterlock
  • Kwikset
  • Schlage

Mortise Deadlocks

These are similar to deadbolts except these provide a greater level of security. Unlike deadbolts, deadlocks require a key to be used to both unlock and lock the bolt (as in on both sides of the door). They also tend to be sturdier than deadbolts because of a difference in the construction of the lock mechanism. A selection of the brands that we recommend are the following:

  • Marks
  • Belwith
  • Global
  • Yale
  • Baldwin

 

High-Tech Lock Options

Numeric keypad locks

Like everything else, lock technology has also entered the twenty-first century. Security technology from movies like James Bond or Mission Impossible is no longer a fiction, but already here. Some of the different styles are:

  • Numeric keypad
  • Bluetooth
  • Mobile phone activated
  • Fingerprint

There is a significant benefit to these style of locks. First of all, they do not require a key so you do not have to worry about losing one. In addition, they allow you to easily control who does and does not have access to your home.

For example, did you go on vacation and forget to ask someone to water your plants for you? No worries, simply text one of your neighbors and you can use an app to temporarily allow them access to your place with a pin code that last for a certain number of usages or days.

Along with greater convenience, these modern locks provide a higher level of security. These cannot be tampered with in traditional ways as they combine the robustness of mechanical locks with today’s technology.

Repair Service

Before you commit to buying a new lock, we can assess a damaged lock and repair the mechanism to get it back to working properly. This can be helpful if only one lock around your home is damaged and you do not want to have to replace all of them or carry around an additional set of keys.

New Installation

Although it might seem easy to just go down to the local hardware store and buy a new door lockset, it can be much more difficult than that. Depending on the age and style of your home and the particular door or window that you are trying to work on, the type of lock that actually fits might be quite difficult to find.

Not only this, but even if you manage to find the matching size and style, installing a new lock properly can be very complex. If you do not set the new piece properly, the door will not be able to lock. Not only this, an improperly installed lock is highly vulnerable to break-ins even if it manages to lock on its own.

Finally, high tech locks are not only tricky to install but can be hard to understand how to use initially. What we can do is make sure that everything is installed correctly and securely and also help you to understand how to use your locks in the safest and easiest way possible.
