In the majority of cases, we can gain access to a property without needing to replace the lock. When carried out by an expert locksmith most locks, including uPVC and wooden locks can be bypassed by non-destructive entry techniques. In some cases it may be necessary to replace the lock depending on the circumstances.

You should expect to get 3-5 new keys with the installation of a new door lock, although each lock will differ with the number of keys that it comes with, so it is always best to check with your locksmith in case you will need extra copies.

Often customers get confused when it comes to changing locks, whether it being they should go down the DIY route or call a Locksmith. It’s always risky to do something you are not specialised in as it can cost you a lot more in the long run and can even invalidate your home insurance.
