Choosing the right locks for your new door is an extremely important process, and one that requires some time and thought. Most homeowners conduct their own research and also consult professional locksmiths to try and find which locks are the best fit for the doors they have. We suggest that homeowners use ANSI (American National Standards Institute) Grade 1 Locks on the exterior doors of their homes. These locks should ideally be deadbolt locks because they are a much better security option.
Grade 1 deadbolt locks should be able to withstand 250,000 cycles and 10 strikes against the door. Their counterparts, the doorknob locks, should also be able to withstand 800,000 cycles, 6 strikes against the door, and a weight test of 360 pounds. We suggest Grade 1 locks because they offer more resistance to intruders and they have longer lifespans than other grade locks. If you need help trying to determine which locks will work for your door, and for other parts of your home, do not hesitate to give us a call so we can go over the options for your new lock installation.
The time needed for a new lock installation varies. This is because the time is dependent on a few factors. First, it depends on what material your door is made out of (which the locksmith should be notified of in advance) because the time varies for installing a lock on a steel door as compared to a wooden door. Most residential properties use wooden doors, but there are some exceptions. Secondly, the time will vary depending on whether or not the holes required for a new lock installation have already been drilled into your door. If they have not, it will take more time due to the fact that our locksmith will have to drill the necessary holes.
Also, the time might vary based on which locks the homeowner wants to install. Some homeowners might merely want to install a simple knob latch bolt lock, while some would prefer to install both a doorknob lock and a deadbolt to make their door as secure as possible. When done by a professional locksmith, your new lock installation should take no longer than 30 minutes.
If your new lock installation is carried out by a professional locksmith, then there will be no damage caused to your door. Our locksmith will have to drill the necessary holes in your door so that they can continue with the new lock installation, but this should not damage your door. It is important to make sure that your new lock installation is carried out by a professional because there are many parts of the installation process that could lead to a damaged door if it is not carried out properly. The only way your door will be damaged while a new lock is being installed is if a subpar locksmith is carrying out the task.
