Facing issues with a lock itself leaves an user with two options: rekeying it or replacing it. Moving to a new apartment, losing the keys to the house, or experiencing a break-in are as many situations that may lead an user to consider rekeying or replacing a lock. Here is a little bit of information about rekeying and replacing your locks and the best time to use each method.
Rekeying is a few words is to re-assemble a lock so it can work with a different key.
A major benefit of this is that the lock does not have to be completely removed for this process to be completed. Why do re-keying ? It is mainly to avoid someone who previously had a key to your home being able to enter anymore. For example, if the home has had a previous owner, if the user has let someone with have a copy of the key, or if key was lost then rekeying may be the best option.
This makes rekeying the more convenient and inexpensive process of the two.
Replacing a lock is all about removing the previous lock from the door and get a new one in its place. It is the more expensive solution, but there are situations where doing so is the best option, especially if the lock is of poor quality. Replacing a lock is a top solution if someone has broken into the house so it is easy to feel like replacing is also upgrading the security of the house.
