Should I replace my locks or have my locks rekeyed? It really depends on the situation. If your locks are in relatively good shape it is much more cost effective to have them rekeyed.
To Rekey, a locksmith changes the inner workings of an existing lock, so the old key no longer opens the lock. The lock will now operate with a different key cut. The deadbolts, doorknobs, and hardware are changed — only the internal mechanisms that accept the key. Rekeying home locks is a cost-effective way to ensure your property is secured
