As with many jobs around the home, you can do them yourself or use a professional. However, when it comes to locks and their installation, they must be fitted to a professional standard to comply with your home insurance.
Using a locksmith who has trained and passed exams to fit your locks saves you time and money in the long run. So why do I need to use a professional? Because poorly fitted locks leave your property vulnerable, a poorly fitted lock will invalidate your home insurance. Don't take the risk.
Hiring a certified locksmith ensures the job is done correctly and efficiently. Accredited locksmiths have undergone extensive training with industry-leading schools such as UK Locksmith Association or Master Locksmith Association and have the skills and expertise necessary to install various locks.
In addition, both training schools offer members extensive training typically carried out by locksmiths who have worked in the field but now want to pass their skills on. Training is ongoing as new locks enter the industry and building regulations change. This means you can trust that your new lock will be installed securely, function properly, and meet your home insurance requirements. In addition to ensuring a proper installation, a certified locksmith offers peace of mind for your home or office security.
Another benefit of using a certified locksmith for your lock installation is that they can provide valuable guidance and advice about locks. For example, a certified locksmith can help you choose the right lock for your specific needs and advise on securing your property best. This can be particularly helpful if you need clarification on which type of lock to choose or if you have specific security concerns.
Furthermore, a certified locksmith can provide additional benefits if something goes wrong with your new lock. Certified locksmiths are required to carry insurance and are held to a high level of accountability. This means that if any issues arise with your new lock, a certified locksmith can help resolve the problem and may even be able to provide compensation for any damages or inconvenience.
Overall, the benefits of using a certified locksmith for your lock installation far outweigh any potential cost savings from hiring an unlicensed individual. A certified locksmith will provide a proper and secure installation, offer peace of mind, and provide valuable guidance and advice.
