Have you ever wondered why you might need to call a Milwaukie locksmith? Today we’re covering some of the most common services we provide to our customers.
Milwaukie Locksmith: Rekey Locks
A lock rekey is a very common and beneficial service our Milwaukie locksmiths perform on a daily basis. Our technicians keep your existing lock but change the inside of the lock to be able to work with a new key. Old keys won’t unlock the door and you don’t have to worry about replacing any hardware.
There are plenty of reasons you may consider rekeying your locks. When you move into a new home or a roommate moves out, our Milwaukie locksmiths can rekey your locks so those old house keys no longer work. If you’ve lost your keys, this service allows you to regain security in case your lost keys end up on the wrong hands. Or maybe your back door uses a different key than your front door and it’s finally time to get those locks working with the same key.
Our Milwaukie locksmiths have helped many customers with their rekey needs, as well as providing other options when a rekey may not be possible. You can call one of our professional locksmiths with questions about your rekey project, or you may find the answer you need in our post on the difference between replacing and rekeying your locks.
