I went to a break in today. Three doors at a drug supplier. The first door was wood and they kicked it in, no problem, not the main problem though.
There are two doors other than the main door where the security is most at risk. They are foam filled metal doors and frames. The doors swing in, a big no no. The thief pryed the door open. There is an alarm. The cops showed up quick but it was too late.
My solution for the main entrance because of the wood door was to install a Mag-Lock wrap around and renforced strike. For the other two metal doors because they swing in, (I couldn't put on a Charly Bar at the pry point), I installed a B162 Grade 2 Schlage double sided dead bolt and a 2.75" backset wrap around at the top and bottom of each door along with a wrap around on the existing B162 dead bolt in the middle with no wrap around on the key in knob lock on each door. The bolts were the standard type, not drive in.
I charged the customer 713.13 US with tax. The job is in Houston Texas.
The price break down is: Parts: B162 626 - 59.95 keyed to his key times four = 239.80
Note: The list on the Grade 1 dead bolts with the big bolt is 125.00 each and I thought that was too much and the customer thought so too. Not a big spender. Small business.
Mag Lock wrap around 2.75" by 12" times four + 107.80 Mag Lock 2.375 wrap around times two = 35.90 Tax 33.18
Labor: Trip charge 30.00 Drilling holes and installing locks 30.00 each times four = 120.00 installing wrap arounds and counter sinking through bolts 15.00 each times seven = 105.00. rekey two other cylinders at 12.00 each for 24.00.
I am billing the customer Monday. He I a regular. Is this a good fair price to charge? Too much? Too little?
