3 Reasons Home Builders Should Know a Quality Locksmith
The long-term success of a home builder is usually dictated by the quality of the finished work, as well as the peace of mind that the new residence provides to its owners. Both of these can be impacted by the service professionals that a home builder partners with, however, which is why it’s important to choose the right contractors for your team, such as plumbers and electricians. But have you considered that the security of new home builds is just as important?
Knowing a good locksmith can benefit home builders in more ways than one. Let’s take a look at the top three reasons why home builders should know a quality locksmith.
1. A locksmith can ensure doors and door hardware are installed properly.
New construction projects have to meet a variety of codes, as you already know. There are different codes for different areas of the house. When it comes to doors, door frames and door hardware, a quality locksmith should be your go-to expert for ensuring everything is up to code. Not only can they supply door hardware and related products, they can make sure all hardware is installed properly. Or, they can even install the door hardware to save your team some time (and ensure it’s installed properly the first time).
2. A locksmith can consult on advanced security features.
Are you installing builder’s grade locks or are you interested in something more substantial? High-security locks and other security features (like master key systems) give new owners extra peace of mind and better protect your reputation as a home builder that goes above and beyond for its customers. Whether you use these extra measures of security for the home build itself or to protect your construction tools, materials and equipment while on the job, here are some of the advanced security features a commercial locksmith can help with:
- Access control and digital locks
- Video and voice intercom systems
- Rekeying and key duplication
- Lock upgrades
- Security systems and cameras
- Master key systems
- High-security door hardware
3. A locksmith can provide services to your customers.
Even if you don’t use a locksmith during your new home build, knowing a quality one can still benefit your business. New homeowners are often interested in getting new locks installed after their home purchase and several of your professional partners may need locksmithing or security services as well. By being able to provide a good reference, you bolster your reputation and your networking ability.
