Calling all Richmond Hoos - Locksmith recommendation? Roofer?

Flew back to visit my mom for the 1st time since pre-pandemic and there's a long list of things to do around the house including a deadbolt that works from the inside but not the outside. I could install a new one myself but the same key opens 3 different doors and I don't want her to have to have different keys for different doors, so I need a pro. Know anyone?

Also roofer recs? Got a good one already but a second bid would be good.

Thanks in advance folks!

As an aside FWIW, neither of my flights (both American, connecting in CLT) had a single empty seat. RIC was nearly empty as usual but CLT was a zoo, especially the commuter flight Concourse E. Masks mostly worn correctly but every concourse I saw was just jammed with humanity at 3:30pm on a Tuesday.
