Kwikset DIY Project

To use an old cliché, “Spring has sprung!” Every spring on In the House, we field calls, texts and email questions from our listeners regarding DIY projects that don’t break the bank.

We’ve found that an ideal spring DIY project is one that:

  • Can be done in one day.
  • Doesn’t break the bank.
  • Has a high esthetic and functional return on investment.

With those criteria in mind, a great project is changing your entry door locks. Replacing the hardware, handleset and deadbolt for all the doors into your home is one of the easiest and effective projects that a do-it-yourselfer can undertake.

If you are contemplating taking on this DIY project, ask yourself these four questions before heading to the hardware store:

  1. Does the current door lock style or finish match on all entry doors?
  2. Are they all keyed to the same key?
  3. Is the style outdated?
  4. Are you interested in upgrading to a smart home product?
