Question DetailsAsked on 10/31/2015

Estimated cost to install 2 deadbolts and match them to current key?

Currently do not have deadbolts on our two entry doors, but would like them. The same key already fits both doors. We would like our current keys to fit these locks as well. What would be the estimated cost (or range examples) to complete this request? Thank you!

Depends on brand - some on the market you can actually take your existing keys and reset the tumblers on the new deadbolts yourself, in-place. Otherwise, if you can identify the brandname so much the better (more likely to accomplish in one visit), but a Locksmith can do this (assuming brands of locks have compatible keys) for probably $50-75 for rekeying only, around $200 probably for installing new deadbolts and like-keying them - more in steel doors.

Cheaper if you take it to a locksmith shop (locksmith/security company with showroom and staffing in-store).

If a substantial DIY'er and locksets are not fancy, might be cheaper to buy 2 new lockset/deadbolt combo kits with matching keys, drill the holes and laltchplate recesses, and install yourself.
