If you live in a home with functioning locks, you may see little value in having them replaced but upgrading to higher quality locks can benefit you in a number of ways, as you will discover in this article. As Calgary locksmiths with many years of experience, we have installed new locks in numerous local properties over the years and have witnessed first-hand how our replacement and installation services can benefit both homeowners and businesses in the area. For those of you who are not really sure whether it is a good idea to replace the existing locks in your home or commercial premises, consider the benefits outlined below before you make a final decision.
The 6 Important Benefits Our Lock Replacement and Installation Services Have to Offer You
If you have recently fitted high-quality replacement locks in your home or commercial property, there is probably no reason for you to consider upgrading them again at this point in time. However, if the locks in your house or corporate headquarters have not been changed for a number of years, you may wish to think about the advantages of replacing them, which we discuss below.
Lower Insurance Premiums
Owners of more secure properties in Calgary enjoy lower premiums for their home and contents insurance, and cheaper cover for their commercial premises. This alone is an excellent reason to consider replacing your existing locks if they old, worn or dated. Insurers base premiums on evaluated risk and if they think that your property is a high risk proposition, due to the fact it is fitted with locks that would be easy for burglars to defeat, they are going to take this into account when calculating your premiums. Over time, it is certainly possible to save more money on insurance premiums than it costs to replace the locks in an average-sized residential property, which is why so many people decide to invest in this home security improvement. The fact there are other equally compelling benefits to go along with lower premiums makes lock replacement a no brainer as far as the majority of homeowners are concerned.
More Effective Deterrent for Potential Intruders
If you want to make your home as secure as possible and provide your family with the highest level of protection possible against potential intruders, there are many different types of advanced locks available today that will help you to achieve this aim. Modern, high-security locks are designed to be more robust, less susceptible to attempts to force them and harder to open with counterfeit keys. Many older locks, which were otherwise very good locks in terms of robustness and durability, are unfortunately quite easy to open without the right key, especially for those who have taken the time to acquire lock-picking skills. If you are not sure whether your current locks would withstand the attentions of a very determined lock picker, you can call our Calgary lock replacement and installation team at any time: we will be more than happy to visit your property and provide you with our professional opinion after surveying your locks.

Greater protection for Your Valuables
Whilst most people would agree that family and friends are far more important than possessions, the majority of us tend to accumulate things that are valuable to us over time and naturally wish to keep them safe. Whether you have a collection of priceless antiques in your home or a number of items that are valuable purely for sentimental reasons, fitting new locks in your home will help you to protect your possessions from local criminals. Even if you live in a nice area with a low crime rate, it is a good idea to make your home as secure as possible, to deter opportunistic burglars who may otherwise be tempted to try their luck. Local businesses that keep stock on the premises will also find new locks to be a worthwhile investment, protecting them from unexpected losses that could cause serious cash flow issues, even if it is eventually possible to recoup the losses by making an insurance claim.
Less Likelihood of Lock Malfunctions
Security is a big issue as far as most homeowners and businesses are concerned but it is not the only reason to consider replacing older locks in local properties: our lock replacement and installation specialists in Calgary are often called out to help property owners who are having difficulties with their existing locks. Older locks and the keys that are used to open them are subjected to wear and tear over time, which can cause them to malfunction in a variety of ways. Your key may snap off in the lock, you may be unable to gain entry to your property because the locks have seized or internal components may become worn to the point where the locks can be opened with almost any type of key, making your property very vulnerable to forced entries. If your locks are old and you would like to replace them before they start to cause you serious problems, please call and speak to one of our expert locksmiths whenever convenient.

Aesthetic Appeal of your home door

Fortunately, modern locks are manufactured in many different styles so even if you are aiming for a rustic or period property aesthetic, you will be able to find high-quality locks that complement your home’s exterior at the same time as providing you with maximum protection. Alternatively, your existing locks may still function as intended but have deteriorated to the point where they detract from the overall appearance of your property. If this is the case, we can specify, supply and install new locks that will ensure your home or business premises look great from both the outside and inside.
Effective Protection from a Specific Threat

If, for example, you have a disagreement with a live-in partner and they leave on bad terms, it is a good idea to replace your locks sooner rather than later.
