When Should I Call A Locksmith?


The question whenever you’re doing a project around the home or office is always whether you can DIY it, or whether you want to hire someone else to do the dirty work for you. There are a lot of considerations when you are making this decision, and we’ll do our best to help.

First, is how difficult is the project you’re looking to take on? If you’re trying to rekey your locks, forget about it. We’ve got years of training and experience which qualifies us to do this for you much faster and cost efficient than doing it yourself. If you’re simply replacing interior doorknobs in your home, go right ahead. A few screws and you’re set with the typical install.

Secondly, are the tools required. Do you have everything you’ll need to do the installation yourself? Again, if you’re just replacing interior doorknobs, almost everyone has the necessary tools. A screwdriver is really all you need here. But if you’re trying to replace the deadbolt on your front door – do you really want the security of your home to be left to chance? Why not spend a few bucks and hire a professional locksmith to do this for you? They have the experience and training, and are typically bonded, licensed, and insured.

Last is time. You’re busy. Is it really worth looking up locksmith videos on youtube, gathering up all of your tools, and then making an attempt, only to have to run to a Home Depot twice? Probably not. Locksmiths are typically reasonably priced, good people that have all the tools with them to get in and out quickly, and with the job well done. Here, I’ve even added a video here for you.

If you need a trusted locksmith in your area, there are many resources out there. If you’re in our area, keep our number handy since you’ll want to give us a call. Trust us, you won’t regret hiring a professional instead of doing it yourself.…
