Oftentimes, the previous owner of your newly acquired house has plenty of spare keys when they were still residing in that place. If you do not want to let any strangers come into your home quickly, you have two options – rekey or lock replacement.
Rekeying is more practical, affordable, and less invasive to the locks of your home. Meanwhile, lock replacement is more expensive and requires the overall removal of the old lock and installing a new one.
Your lost keys will be in the hand of a stranger or opportunistic criminal, to prevent any future burglary you need to rekey or replace your old lock pins.

Rekeying your locks means taking out the old springs and pins inside the lock cylinder, then replacing them with a new one that pairs with a new key.
If the existing locks of your home are way passed over the rekeying stage, then a lock replacement is the best option. In contrast, you can do rekeying if the locks are still in good condition.
