Basic Services, Including Lock Repair and Installation
Whilst qualified locksmiths perform a wide variety of tasks on a daily basis, those listed below are the types of services that you would expect even the smallest of firms to offer, assuming they are experienced professionals who know what they are doing.
Fitting of New Locks
Whether you have a new property built and want to make sure it is completely secure, move into an existing one and decide to change the locks in case a previous resident kept copies of the keys, or wish to replace the locks in your current home because you feel it is time they were upgraded, you should find that any reputable local locksmith who can provide Lock Replacement Service at a reasonable price. The fitting of new locks to residential properties is a basic service that you can expect all local firms to provide.
Installation of High Security Locks
If you are interested in protecting your home with the best locks currently available, there is a wide selection of high-security models from which you can choose. However, if you want to make sure that they do the job for which they were designed, you need to have them installed by a professional locksmith rather than attempting to perform the installation work yourself. Any qualified and experienced professional in Calgary should be capable of fitting high security locks in your home.

Emergency Locksmith Services
If you lose your keys and cannot get into your home, or your property is burgled and you need to have the locks fixed without delay, you will find that most local companies provide such services. However, some are not available 24/7/365 and some may charge higher call out fees than others so you might have to try a few numbers before you find one that you are happy with. Whilst we are on the subject: if you are looking for a company that can provide a highly professional emergency service at very competitive rates, do not hesitate to call us at any time of day or night. We are available at all times, including public holidays, and guarantee to respond to your request for assistance in a timely manner.
Installing Locks for Swimming Pool Perimeter Fences
If you have a swimming pool in your yard, you will already know how important it is to ensure that it is not possible for young children to access the pool when you are not around. To make sure this is the case, you can call a local locksmith and ask them to install a secure lock for the gate in the fence that surrounds the pool. This is another service that all good locksmiths in Calgary should be able to provide, and we are no exception!
If you require specialist services, you will find that a good residential locksmith with years of experience can also provide all of the following services, in addition to those listed above:
Custom Lock Installation
For customers who require an added level of security, above and beyond that which most homeowners are happy with, quality residential locksmiths offer custom lock installation services. Sourcing special locks that are designed to defeat even the most determined of thieves, a professional residential lock specialist can help you to turn your home into a veritable fortress. Custom designed and manufactured locks are naturally more expensive than their mass-produced counterparts but if you want or need an extra level of security in your home, you may feel that it is money well spent. Sitting somewhere in between custom and standard locks are locks that come with patented or restricted keys. These keys cannot legally be copied by anybody but yourself.
Home Security Appraisals
If you suspect that your home is perhaps not as secure as you would like it to be, you can have it appraised by a professional locksmith in Calgary. This service, offered by the best companies in the area, is very useful for those who would like to make sure there are no weaknesses in their home defences. In the event that any weaknesses are identified when your property is being surveyed, a good locksmith will be able to suggest cost effective solutions for you to consider. Whether you follow any of these suggestions is, of course, entirely up to you but if you go to the expense of paying for a professional opinion, it is worth listening to what they have to say.
Design, Specification and Installation of Home Alarm Systems
In addition to traditional lock picking and lock replacement services, quality locksmiths can provide a comprehensive home alarm consultancy and installation service. From surveying your home and making a note of all points of entry that should be protected by a new home alarm system, through to specifying individual components and installing them for you, an experienced professional will be able to meet all of your home alarm needs. The cost will depend on the individual service provider and what type of system you decide to have installed but if you are dealing with a reputable company such as ourselves, you will find that the rates you are charged are very reasonable.
Installation of Electronic Entry Systems
While most homeowners are happy to use conventional locks, some prefer the convenience and added security that modern electronic entry systems have to offer. Electronic entry systems that are activated by key cards are also useful for those who often have guests staying with them and do not want to go to the trouble of replacing locks if the keys they give to their guests should happen to go missing.
Maintenance and Repair Services
Whether you have standard locks, high security locks or an electronic entry system installed in your home, you should find that your home security devices are very low maintenance but in the event they need a little attention, a quality locksmith will be able to take care of them for you. For those who prefer to take preventative action rather than wait for something to go wrong, it may be worth paying to have all your locks and alarm systems looked over by a professional once every year or so. In addition to servicing and maintenance tasks, your local professional locksmith will be able to carry out any remedial repairs that may need performing.

Re-keying Locks Services
Many people think that it is wise to replace all of the existing locks when moving to a new home but this is not always the case. If you move into a property that is fitted with high-quality locks in a good state of repair, it may be more economical to have them rekeyed rather than replaced. If you have just moved house and would like to find out more about rekeying services, please feel free to call and speak to a member of our team at any time. In common with all good locksmiths, this is a service that we are more than happy to provide to residential customers in Calgary and the surrounding area. Not all types of locks can be rekeyed more cheaply than they can be replaced but many can so it is something that is definitely worth investigating if you have just moved or are thinking of replacing the locks in your existing home because some of your keys have gone missing.
Quality Services at Competitive Prices: Lock Installation and Repair Services Performed by Diligent Professionals
If there is one thing you can expect from a quality residential locksmith, it is that they will deliver a range of quality services at competitive prices, designed to meet both your needs and your budget. Whether you call to ask about a simple lock repair, lock installation or to request the services of an emergency locksmith at the earliest possible opportunity, you can expect your enquiry to be dealt with courteously and professionally by experienced specialists. Professional service providers who pride themselves on their ability to deliver high-quality services at reasonable rates are a positive pleasure to deal with, as you will discover for yourself if you call and speak to us about your home security needs.
The range of services provided by a particular locksmith may vary from one company to the next but all full-service locksmiths should provide the majority of services we have listed above and should be able to ensure that their technicians perform all work to consistently high standards at all times.
Specialist Consultancy Services
Most of the time, the services that locksmiths in Calgary and elsewhere are required to provide are relatively simple: lock replacement and repair work takes up a large part of most professional service providers’ working weeks. However, on occasion, we are, as mentioned above, required to provide expert consultancy services to local residents who take the security of their homes as seriously as we do. Should you decide to consult a quality locksmith about your home security needs, you can look forward to receiving impartial and expert advice from a team of professionals who enjoy nothing more than sharing their knowledge and experience for the benefit of their customers. From the selection of solid locks for exterior doors to the specification and installation of advanced alarm systems, a good locksmith will be able to provide you with all the guidance you need to make the right choices for your home security needs.
An Open and Honest Approach
A consistently high quality of service delivered to customers both old and new is the hallmark of a good locksmith and, paired with this consistency of service, you can expect to encounter an honest and open approach that makes the process of choosing new security devices and having them installed in your home a pleasurable experience from start to finish. When you ask a professional locksmith in Calgary about their lock replacement and lock repair services, or any other service they happen to provide, you should find that they are happy to explain all the options open to you in clear, easy-to-understand terms, and to make specific recommendations based on your stated priorities and the amount of money that you are happy to spend. If you find this not to be the case with any particular company you get in touch with, we recommend trying another service provider, such as ourselves.
We hope that you have found the information in this guide useful and that it has helped you to understand exactly what you can expect from a quality service provider in Calgary and the surrounding area. As mentioned above, if you find that the level of service you receive is less than inspiring, we suggest contacting another company and asking them to help you solve your home security needs. From a single lock installation to a full-scale upgrading of an entire property’s security measures, a good locksmith will be pleased to receive any and all requests for assistance and will make sure that your needs come first at all times.
