3 Signs You Need to Replace Your Locks, Kenvil, New Jersey

High-quality door locks last a long time, but there are circumstances in which you’ll need to have them replaced. You may need to do so even if your locks are still in good condition. Here are three situations in which it’s ideal to have a locksmith fit your home with a new set.

When to Get New Door Locks

1. You’ve Had a Break-In

A break-in can be a startling experience, and it leaves your home vulnerable for several reasons. A lock that has been picked or broken likely has mechanical damage, which will make it even more vulnerable in future break-in attempts. The burglar may have also stolen a spare set of your keys so they could let themselves in the next time you’re gone. To prevent another break-in, talk to your residential locksmith about upgrading your locks when you replace them. For example, all exterior doors should have a deadbolt — even those leading to the backyard or garage.

2. You’ve Moved

3. Someone Has Left

If someone who was working or living in your home has left, you’ll want a new set of locks. This may include when a roommate has moved out or when you and a spouse have separated. You should also replace your locks if you have dismissed a member of your personal staff who had access to a key, such as a maid or nanny. New locks are especially important if any of these people left on bad terms.
