I lost my keys while going on a run. I called Top Atlanta Locksmith LLC and the tech was fast, efficient, and professional. Oh and reasonably priced. I scoured the web for quotes and they were the lowest in price.

How to Know When It’s Time for a Deadbolt Replacement

There can be many underlying causes for having a dysfunctional deadbolt. The first step is to make sure the issue isn’t a worn out key or shifting door jamb. In instances such as this, your deadbolt may be working perfectly, but you’ll need to get a new key made or possibly move the strike plate or strike box may need to be moved. In severe instances, such as after an attempted break in, you may have to replace your door jamb entirely to ensure safety. If you’ve successfully eliminated these two common problems, then a damaged deadbolt may be the culprit. You may only need a repair or rekey service if the cylinder isn’t working correctly. Sometimes, the deadbolt itself has been broken or damaged, in which case you’ll need to get an entirely new unit. Many property owners who suffer from a broken cylinder choose to take the opportunity to upgrade to a high security deadbolt, especially if the damage is due to a lock picking thief who managed to bypass the front door locks. 

Whether you need a key duplication, strike plate repair, deadbolt repair, rekey service or high security deadbolt installation, the experts at Top Atlanta Locksmith Have what it takes to get the job done, for prices that will help you stay under budget.
