What does it mean to have your locks re-keyed?
Having your locks”changed” or “re-keyed” means that you’re having the locks you already own changed on the inside. A locksmith changes the pins inside of the lock to work with a new key. The new pins are of different height, which match the new depths of the new key.

Will any of the old keys still work?
No. Once a lock is changed, the only keys that will work are your new keys.

Can I have all my locks work with the same key?
Yes, but first your locks must have matching keyways, for example if you have all Schlage locks on your home all the locks could be keyed the same. However if you have one Schlage lock and one Kwikset lock the two locks could not be keyed alike. One of the two locks would have to be replaced in order to key them alike. Most homes have just one keyway already.
