Rekeying Home Locks
Many homeowners want the added security of changing their locks, but find the cost of buying all-new locks and door hardware to be off-putting. Thankfully, if you’re in a situation where you need new locks on a budget, Indigo Locksmith has a solution for you.
We will rekey your existing locks to use new keys without your having to change the hardware. Not only is rekeying a more affordable approach to changing your locks, it’s faster as well because you don’t have to order new hardware and wait for it to be delivered.
Rekeying your locks is a process in which we will take apart your existing lock and give its internal pins and tumblers a new configuration that will require different keys, then put the lock back together and reinstall it. It takes less than an hour and will significantly reduce the chance of someone entering your home without your permission.
You may choose to rekey your locks every few years, just for an extra layer of protection. It’s also a good idea to have your locks rekeyed if you’ve recently had a romantic partner or roommate move out and don’t want them having access to your home, or if you just purchased the home and want to render the previous owner’s keys useless.
Master Key Systems
When rekeying your home locks, you may want to consider upgrading to a master key system. This is a system in which select keys—the master keys—are able to unlock every door in the home while other keys are only able to open designated doors. Master key systems are especially useful if you expect to have people who don’t live with you coming and going from your property.
You, as the homeowner, will hold the master key and have full, unfettered access to your home. You can give a sub-master key to a pet-sitter or house-sitter; that key will work on the front door only so they are able to check on your house and pets when you’re out of town but not have full access to the home. Master key systems are easy to customize to your specific needs so you can feel safe and secure, not worry about who you give a house key to.
