Although 31-W Insulation started as an insulation company, our team has since expanded our offerings to include a wide range of other home improvement products, including door hardware and locks. A good set of door locks can last for decades, but there are some situations where you may want to replace them, even if they’re still in good condition.
In this article, we’ll go over a few common scenarios in which you should think about replacing your door locks for safety and peace of mind.
- When Moving into a New Home – When you move into a new home, it’s wise to get the door locks replaced soon after as a safety precaution. Although the sellers of a home are supposed to give all copies of the keys to the new owners, there’s no way to know for sure if you receive every copy. If you want to ensure no one can access your home without your knowledge, we recommend starting over with a fresh set of door locks.
- After a Break-In – If your home has been broken into, you should get your door locks replaced as soon as possible. Our team can provide more secure locks to prevent intruders from getting inside in the future, and we can help restore your peace of mind.
- When You Lose a Key – We recommend replacing your door locks if you can’t account for all your house keys for any reason. If you have lost a key, you can’t know for sure whether someone else picked it up, or what they might do with it, so it’s wise to get your locks replaced to render that key useless.
