A new house is one of the biggest investments you’ll likely make during your lifetime. But it’s more than just an investment – it’s where you’ll build memories. One of the most important things you can do once you get those new house keys?
Bringing in a professional to re-key your locks. Here’s why.
Locks Only You Can Open
Buying a home that someone else lived in means moving in a property that once belonged to someone else. They had access to every part of what’s now yours, and that could still be true if you don’t choose to re-key or replace locks entirely.
And while it’s probably true that any spare key still in the former owner’s possession is likely to get tossed in a junk drawer and forgotten, ensuring that you and your family are the only ones with access to your home is never a mistake. What if the former homeowners had tenants or relatives who also have keys to what is now your home? It boils down to a security issue, and re-keying is a small but mighty way to limit potential access for peace of mind.
What Does Re-Keying Involve?
Re-keying a home means bringing in a professional, like the certified technician here at AllSafe Lock & Key in Reno, to service all of the locks on your new home. Instead of changing out the physical locks themselves, our technician will remove specific interior elements, like springs and pins, and replace them with a brand new set. From there, a set of completely unique keys can be created, giving you – and only you – access to the house.
