Difference: replacing vs. rekeying
- Installing a new lock on your door is an important way to keep it safe. A professional locksmith can help you do this quickly and efficiently, but if you have the skills yourself there are also many DIY instructions available for various types of doors that make replacing one easy as pie!
- In apartment complexes, rekeying door locks is now the most common way of changing keys on a single-family home. This process involves realigning pins and springs in order to match your new key perfectly with what’s already inside that will allow you access any time!
Rekey when you move
If you’re looking to move into a new home, it’s important that the locks on your door are updated so no one can enter without permission. When buying an existing property or renting from someone else though there might be regulations about changing those kinds of things- check with them first before making any changes!
Replace damaged locks
In this situation, it’s best to bite the bullet and replace your entire lock. The keyless entry system can be rekeyed but won’t solve any existing problems with worn-out or damaged locks—you’ll still need new replacements for those too!
Change the locks when your keys have been lost or stolen
When you lose your house key, changing the locks is a priority so that no one can get into home. Changing out all of these old keys with new ones will make sure nobody enters without permission and ruins any chance they may have had before when it came time for rekeying (just as we would if losing track).
Consider the convenience of a single key
The convenience of having a single key that fits all your locks is important if you want to be able access them quickly and easily. You can accomplish this by rekeying, but make sure the same brand as used on each door or else there will still problems getting inside! Key styles and techniques vary from one manufacturer to another. For example, if you have all locks on your house that are made by Schlage there is no need for any additional keys as they will fit into each other perfectly with just one attempt at rekeying them because their keyways are similar enough; however this may not be true in cases where the brand names differ quite significantly between brands such as antique versus modern day models.
