Posted February 08, 2018 05:19:28Homeowners, especially those who are renters, often find themselves in the position of having to decide between purchasing a cheap door lock or spending a few thousand dollars on a more expensive one.
However, the latter option is not always an option, according to a study published today by Consumer Reports.
According to the report, the average price of a home locksmith’s business is $3,400, while the average cost of a brand-name home lockscreen is $8,400.
This is compared to $1,200 for the cheapest home locks, $2,600 for the most expensive home locks and $6,600 as a brand name lockscreen.
The report said that the cost of an average lockscreen has risen from $2.3 million in 2006 to $5.5 million in 2017, which is the same as the number of homes being sold each year.
“Home lockscreen companies often offer lockscreen services to homeowners, but it’s worth remembering that you should look at the total cost of the service before deciding whether or not you want to invest in a lockscreen,” said Dan Smith, Consumer Reports senior director of marketing.
“When choosing a locksmith, consumers should also be aware of the cost per lock, the amount of time the lockscreen costs, and whether the locks are more expensive than the advertised price.”
While the average homeowner is likely to spend $1 million to $2 million on lockscreen service, Smith said the cost can vary significantly depending on the type of lockscreen that a homeowner chooses.
“It’s important to be aware that the costs vary greatly depending on a homeowner’s choice,” he said.
“Many lockscreen manufacturers offer a full service of lockscreens, but there’s no way to determine what the final cost will be on a monthly basis,” Smith said.
“Some lockscreen lockscreen providers offer a limited number of locks at a discounted price.
These locks may be more expensive to buy and install, but they provide a full lockscreen experience for homeowners.”
If you want a full-service lockscreen, then you may have to consider the costs of purchasing a full package.
“The consumer watchdog added that there are more than 300 lockscreen types available, which can range from $20 to $50 per piece.”
There are also lockscreen devices that can be installed for as little as $10, which could be used for any number of applications, including to lock a door, lock a garage door or lock a window.”
