Why do I have to replace my lock instead of repairing it?

There is no doubt that repairing a lock is the much more cost-effective option for any homeowner, but sometimes the only option available to homeowners is changing locks. A lock can be repaired if none of its integral components have been damaged. Prime locksmith will not be able to give you an answer on whether your lock can be repaired until they have arrived to examine the lock and assess exactly what is wrong with it. Essentially your lock cannot be repaired if it is damaged beyond repair. Sometimes locks can be damaged due to blunt external force being used against them (if someone attempts to break down your door) or their internal parts are simply worn from being used so much. This tends to happen with high traffic doors. If any of these things are plaguing your door then it is very likely that changing locks will help solve the problem

How long will it take to replace my lock?

With the help of an experienced locksmith Prime Locksmith , changing locks should take approximately 20 to 30 minutes. In some cases it might take less time or more time, but this is all dependent on the type of lock you already had in place, and the one that you wish to replace it with. The turnaround time is much faster if you are using the same model of lock since your door is already primed for it to be inserted. However, if you are replacing it with a new lock that requires that some minor modifications be made to your door, then it will take a bit more time.

Will my door be damaged in the process of changing locks?

No, of course not! Ideally, your door should not be damaged in the process of changing locks and replacing it with a new one. Prime locksmith are trained and know exactly how to handle lock changes and replacements. You can rest assured that they will treat your door with the utmost care and will not inflict any damage.

Do I need to change my door if I want to replace my old lock with a smart lock?

In most ideal situations you will not have to change any aspect of your door if you want to replace your traditional lock with a smart lock. Many of the smart lock models fit well within the doors that homeowners have in place. Prime locksmith technician might have to make a few minor adjustments to your door to accommodate the smart lock you want to put in place, but you will not have to change your entire door, unless you want to.
