If you’ve had a breach of security, a recent change of staff at work, or a change in who has access to your home, you may be considering a lock change. At Minneapolis Lock and Key, commercial and residential locksmithing services are our specialty.
Deciding whether you should have the locks changed entirely or simply rekeyed can be a difficult decision. It’s important to take a number of factors from cost to access limitation into consideration. Here are a few things you should consider when deciding whether to lock or rekey your facility or home:
1. How Much Are You Willing to Invest?
Having your locks rekeyed is the simplest and most affordable solution. If you’re concerned about your budget, this may be the best way to go. When you rekey a lock, you don’t have to worry about replacing any of the existing hardware, which can save you a bundle right off the top.
2. Is it Just a Stuck Key?
If you’ve gotten your key jammed in a lock or broken it, you may be thinking you need to change the lock altogether. But hold the phone! Don’t trash the lock until we take a look at it. Our expert locksmithing pros are experienced at removing broken and stuck keys from your locks. If any parts are damaged, we can replace them and get your lock operating smoothly once more at a minimal cost.
3. Is it an Antique Key?
If you live in an older home with a skeleton key, don’t feel like you have to replace it because the key has been lost. We can help you keep your home’s original charm by creating a new version of the antique key or repairing the broken lock.
4. Are You Thinking of Upgrading?
If you’ve got a multi-tenant residence or a commercial lock, it might be time to consider upgrading to a more secure system. We’ve got plenty of access control options as well as intelligent key systems to upgrade the security in your commercial or multi-resident facility.
