"Used a coupon from Angie's list ($50 service for $30). They called the next day to schedule an appointment and give me a time window. They called just before" the scheduled appointment to let me know they had run into a problem at an earlier appointment and would like to reschedule for the next day, which was fine with me. They called the following day and showed up right on time. They re-keyed 3 locks, made me 4 keys for the locks, tested the locks and keys and finished the job promptly.

In addition to the roughly $100-200 for the lockset itself, I would expect from $50-100 range (depending on your local labor costs) by a locksmith, ASSUMING you get a lockset that uses the existing door and frame lockset holes - should only take about 15-30 minutes in that case. Could run into maybe $100 more for a carpenter or the locksmith to fill and glue the existing holes and then drill new ones if lock does not fit the existing (probably "standard" hole spacing and setback - or maybe $200-300 more for carpenter to put in entirely new striker side trim and paint to match if you don't like the looks of the filled holes.

I understand your concern - but locksmiths are criminal record vetted and bonded pretty well, so not a major risk there. Unless you bought the deadbolt and entry lockset as a boxed set - both keyed the same - it would be normal for him to rekey so they use the same key. People do not want to have to fumble with two different keys to get in, so he probably just did not think to ask if you wanted them the same. Is it also possible he was keying to match a back or garage door lock too so all your entry doors use the same key ? A large portion of their work is rekeying locks after change of tenants or owners, or changing out a worn out lockset, so that would be second nature to him to do it - I don't personally think you have a high risk from this, unless perhaps you live in a very upscale house and had a lot of valuables laying around that he could see while working. If that $66 million Van Gogh painting you bought yesterday was leaning against the entry wall waiting to be hung, then I might be a bit concerned - otherwise not.

I called on Friday night and ask if he could come out on Saturday and repair my broken lock. He said that he would and requested that I email a photo of the door lock. The email photo helped him perfectly match the lock. He came out Saturday afternoon and replaced the lock with an exact color match. The door was always a problem to lock. He adjusted the door so that the new lock works easily. The work was done timely and was reasonably priced. I am very pleased at how easily my door locks. I highly recommend this company and would use them again.

Asheville  Locksmiths Provider Name Locked
promptly returned my calls. Because he was asked to do more work at the job prior to our appointment, he couldn't make our original appointment time. He called well in advance to let me know this and explain the situation. He showed up exactly on schedule the next day. He was friendly and professional. We discussed a few different ways to do the job. He was very clear in pointing out the pros and cons of each alternative. He finished quickly, and left no mess.
All keys worked smoothly in every lock he re-keyed. This had been a problem with a prior a locksmith. When he told me the final cost, I had to ask if he remembered to include everything. I could not believe how reasonable the cost was. I rarely write reviews. This was one time that I made sure to write a review. I recommend him highly. Our dog liked him as well.
