big-red-locksmiths-residential-home-lockout-servicesGetting locked out of your home is not a fun experience. However, it’s an experience that’s more common than many people realize. And when it happens, it’s often at the worst possible time. The perfect example is swinging by your house after work to change or grab something important before heading to an evening obligation. If this plan is interrupted by the realization that you can’t get inside your home, it can send your stress level through the roof.

While a home lockout is almost always going to be a frustrating experience, the good news is you’re not completely powerless. Regardless of where your keys may be or the exact reason you’re locked out of your home, you can still get back inside with help from a professional.

How We Can Help with a Home Lockout

If you ever get locked out of your home and call Big Red Locksmiths, a member of our team will be promptly sent to you. Upon arrival, the locksmith will be able to assess the situation and let you know exactly what needs to be done. This includes letting you know the cost of the service. From there, it generally takes less than half an hour to get the door open.

One of the questions we’re often asked about this service is if it will cause any damage. The short answer is you don’t need to worry about any damage to your property. Plenty of locked doors can be opened in a way that leaves the lock functional. And even if your lock has to be drilled, the locksmith will properly replace it without you having any worries about your door being damaged.
