One of the most obvious signs that you need new locks is if you experience a break-in. If this occurs, you want to replace your locks immediately to prevent further break-ins. Most times, your insurance will cover the cost of replacing your locks.

Locks, like most things, wear over time and need to be replaced. If your key is constantly getting stuck in the lock, this is a sign that your lock needs to be replaced. If any part of the locking system is loose or damaged, including the lock itself or the box or strike plate, then your lock should be looked at by a locksmith to see whether it needs to be repaired or replaced altogether.

If you are moving into a new residence, commercial or residential, it is a good idea to have locks replaced or rekeyed as a safety precaution. This way, you don’t have to wonder who can access your building or home.
