Lock repairs and replacement

Lock repairs and replacement

Wrestling with a faulty lock in our home or business is not only extremely frustrating; it can also be a sign the lock is about to fail and leave you with the much bigger problem of not being able to unlock or lock the door at all. If you’re having issues with a commercial or residential lock that’s too easy to open, too hard to open, or won’t open at all, it’s important to get the lock in question repaired or replaced right away to avoid needing an emergency locksmith at some point in the future. 

Why locks need repair and replacement

Lock troubles aren’t always limited to a lock simply failing to open. You might choose to get your commercial or residential door lock repaired or replaced if you experience any of the following:

  • Sticky locks –  the need to wiggle or jiggle the key before it opens.
  • Frozen locks – cold temperatures making it hard to insert or turn they key.
  • Misaligned locks – latches or bolts not lining up, making locking hard or impossible.
  • Blocked locks – keyholes blocked with a broken key or some other obstruction.
  • Broken locks – The opening mechanism within the lock appears to be faulty or damaged.

Commercial and residential lock repair and replacement

Although there’s a strong temptation to do-it-yourself when it comes to commercial and residential lock repair and replacement, here are just a few reasons why it’s recommended to get a professional locksmith to take care of it: 

  • They can accurately diagnose the problem and identify if other issues need to be addressed for a complete solution, e.g. structural damage to the door in a break-in scenario.
  • They can judge whether the lock can be repaired or needs replacing. Trying to fix a lock, or multiple locks, that can’t be repaired is a huge waste of time, energy, and often money.
  • They can provide expert security advice on whether repairing or replacing the current lock is the best approach to achieve your security goals.
