"We recently purchased a home and found Dorrant on Angie's list. He did an outstanding job at a great price. He rekeyed all locks in our home while working around" movers, painters, deliveries and the heat. All the locks were lined up and working smoothly once he was done. We had several different brands of locks and he rekeyed them all to a single key. He worked with us to reschedule a day later due to a last minute closing snafu as well. Dorrant is the utmost professional and an expert locksmith. You certainly won't go wrong hiring him!

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 bought the service in the morning and it was performed at 4:30 that very same afternoon. I was impressed by how quickly

responded and scheduled me. His employee,

arrived on time, was very polite, and knowledgeable. He was professional and re-keyed my locks in about a 1/2 hour. He replaced a handle that was not working correctly with a new knob at a very reasonable price. I was thrilled with the service, and I would recommend

It was an emergency, I couldn't open the door at all. I depend on that door to let my dogs out to the back deck and enclosed yard, and to get to the garage. I was sitting outside in the 95 degree heat to reassure the dogs tha it was ok to be out there without "their" door being open. He came within 10 minutes of my call, did a quick replacement of the inards on the lock and the had me use the key to lock / unlock and showed me it was working. Professional and easy to work with. Thank you so much!

After checking Angie's List for a local locksmith, I found
Durham Locksmiths Provider Name Locked
& Safe based in my suburb. Phoned Saturday 7/25/15 and spoke with owner

about replacing my existing front door deadbolt & latch lock. A bit of the latch part had sheared off plus we wanted to upgrade this builder's standard lock set.
Durham Locksmiths Provider Name Locked
asked me to send him pictures of the existing lock and after he reviewed them he phoned back promptly and we discussed the job including the style of lock I'd like. Rather than going lock shopping myself, I said I'd like him to bring lock choices of the type we'd discussed with him. We made an appoint for Monday, 7/27/15 between 9 - 10AM. He quoted a price of about $300 but dependent on lock selection.

arrived shortly after 9AM with several lock choices and quoted @'s installed price. I went with a brushed nickel set that was $350 installed. It has a sweeped handle from the deadlock down to the door latch. There's an extra hole drilled at the bottom to anchor the bottom sweep part. He asked if I wanted to keep using the same key and installed it so I could.
The appointment was over within an hour including

using his hand-vac to clean after work was completed.
We're happy with the new & improved, and great looking, lock and Reliable's fast, expert, friendly visit. I might've saved a bit doing my own shopping, but I'm fine with the convenience of choosing a quality lock with the advice on the workings of @ from

from the samples he brought with him.
He warrants his work for 90 days and the lock has a lengthy warranty on its finish.
This company has a 5 star rating from an earlier customer on Angie's List and I agree with it.

We got a very accurate estimate over the phone which matched the final cost. I love that. They were professional and quick to respond; same day service on two locks and six keys. There was a small additional cost because the technician noticed the strike plate was missing and the wood frame was damaged. He fixed it and even vacuumed up the debris!

is extremely professional and courteous. Scheduling the appointment was easy and he was very punctual. He was also very mindful of the napping toddler in the house as he went about his work. He explained all the work he would do in detail, and there were no
