Building a new extension

We loved our house from the first time we went through, but it really didn't have enough living space. We have worked on improving the layout of the home and increasing the living area of the home to create a modern and more pleasant layout to the home. We are really proud of how the job has turned out and we wanted to share some of the details of how the extension and layout changes where designed and constructed. This blog has some of the photos of our extension as well as tips that we have learnt along the journey,.

Reasons to Hire a Locksmith to Change Your Locks

Construction & Contractors Blog

When you need to have your locks changed, you might have considered picking up a new door lock at the hardware store and installing it yourself. While this is an option, it is highly recommended that you instead have a locksmith perform this service for you. Here are some reasons for having locks changed or rekeyed by a professional locksmith instead of doing it yourself.

They Have the Tools to Get it Done Right

First of all, locksmiths already have all the tools needed to install a door lock quickly and efficiently. They will get the job done right and make sure the lock is as secure as possible. The last thing you want to do is question whether or not you installed the new lock right. If the lock seems a little loose, are you sure your home is secure enough? By going through a locksmith, they not only know how to rekey the lock, but also how to replace the lock efficiently. Their professional-grade tools allow them to do it much more quickly in comparison.

Locksmiths Can Recommend a High-Security Lock

Another great reason to have a locksmith install the new lock is because they can recommend the perfect lock for your home. Perhaps you are changing the lock because the previous lock was tampered with. In this case, the locksmith knows how the lock was tampered with, and what other type of lock would offer you with better security. They can help you determine if a keyless lock is best, how to program an electronic lock, and what to look for in a high-security deadbolt. Make sure you communicate with your locksmith and tell them your main security needs and preferences.

They Are Available 24 Hours a Day

There are many times when you need the locks to be changed as soon as possible, which is why going to a locksmith is so beneficial. Many locksmiths are willing to come by your home at any time of the day or night, including holidays or weekends. They understand the importance of proper security and will be willing to work after-hours. You might need the lock to be changed right away if you had your purse stolen and your house key was inside, leaving you concerned that someone can gain access into your home. You may also need to change the locks right away if you had a falling out with a roommate, and you want the locks changed immediately after they leave.
