This service will usually cast somewhere in the region of $50- $100.
Residential Locksmith Services
Residential locksmiths will open homes for people who have locked themselves out or lost their keys.
In the event of a burglary they will replace locks for worried homeowners.
In the event of a divorce or relationship breakup a locksmith can ease worries by replacing door locks that the partner may still retain keys for.
When a new home is purchased a locksmith can change all locks to alleviate concerns about the availability of keys to realtors and homebuyers prior to the closing.
Commercial Locksmith Services
In large commercial office buildings and residential apartments a locksmith will hold a door lock plan for the entire building enabling them to change barrels or cylinders when the need arises.
When a tenant moves out of a large apartment building the locksmith will merely replace the cylinder. The new cylinder number will be placed in the building lock plan and this will enable the new tenant to have a different key than the old tenant. However the locking system will still allow master keys used by maintenance to enter.
Similarly in large commercial buildings key integrity can be maintained by changing cylinders when employees leave or are terminated who has access to areas secured by keys. By changing only the cylinders senior executives will still have access with their existing keys as will maintenance and security officials.
