Smart Reasons to Have New Locks Installed in Your Property

How old are the locks on your doors and windows? The technology used to create locks advances all the time, meaning locks bought today are likely to be far stronger and safer than ones bought years ago.

As such if your doors and windows have been installed for several years, you might want to consider a lock upgrade.

Is it worth upgrading your locks?

It depends what you currently have installed, but in many cases the answer is yes. For starters you will gain significant peace of mind in knowing your doors and windows have stronger more up-to-date locks installed. Top-of-the-range locks will be much harder for a potential thief to break through, offering you and your home better protection as a result.

Do your current locks meet the requirements of your insurance policy?

Some residents in Hull may have an unpleasant experience if they discover their locks do not meet the requirements laid out in their home insurance policy. Not everyone is aware of this but most insurers will demand a minimum level of protection with regard to door and window locks.

The good news is Pixlocks always fits the highest-quality new locks available. Our replacement locks service in Hull will enable you to get the protection you need as well as providing the potential to get a discount on your policy. This isn’t guaranteed but some insurers will offer cheaper policies if you can prove you have top-quality locks installed. This is because it is less likely anyone would be able to break in.

Sleep easier at night with brand new locks

Security is something you can’t put a price on. You shouldn’t wait until there are burglaries in your area to reach the point where you are considering investing in new locks. By investing in them now you could actually put potential thieves off trying to gain access to your house or flat. They tend to pick easier targets and if they see you’ve got the best locks on the market they’re likely to forget about even trying to gain entry.

Not just doors – windows too

We’ve touched on the need to think about window locks as well as door locks, but it can be easy to focus on your doors rather than your windows. However it’s worth replacing all of them if you can, since windows can present just as enticing a method of gaining access to a house as doors can. Once again it’s the quality of the lock that counts.
