Have you lost your keys and need to replace your lock? Or you want to replace your current lock for another reason? Whatever the case may be, changing a door lock is a fairly quick job, especially if you call a local locksmith. When it comes to the cost of changing a door lock, it depends on a few factors:
- The type and brand of the lock
- The time of day/night
- Locksmith’s distance
- How long does it take the locksmith to install the new lock
There are various types of locks available such as mortice locks, deadbolts, euro profile cylinder, rim cylinder, etc. The cost of repairing a lock thus varies depending on the type. The brand of the lock also impacts the cost of the service because some brands are more expensive than others. Generally, you can expect the total cost of changing your door lock to be between $100-$250.
Should You Try to Change the Door Lock Yourself?
You have probably thought that changing a lock isn’t something you couldn’t handle on your own. If you have the necessary skills and tools, then why not? In that case, a DIY project is a cost-effective solution.
However, if you don’t have the skills and you’ve never attempted changing a lock before, we strongly suggest that you contact a local locksmith professional. In this way, you will save time and save yourself the frustration of hopelessly trying to install a lock without professional help. It’s hardly worth the price you would pay a professional locksmith to get the job done quickly and efficiently.
