Default Gatehouse brand lock re-keyed

Hi All,

I purchased a handleset and deadbolt set from the company Gatehouse at Lowes, i wanted to have it re-keyed and they said no to because gatehouse usually break after a month or so.

That doesn't sit well with me and I wanted to see if anyone else has had experience having a gatehouse brand re-keyed? It was 2 years old and I got a great deal but if its junk I don't want it.

Thanks

A quick google search showed that keys for this brand of lock are proprietary to Lowes so that is a quick red flag. I also saw some postings that these locks are not as secure as they should be. All things being considered and if the money is not a huge issue, I'd go with Schlage locks.
